Tesla Model 3 Standard Range+ sells out for 2021 in U.S.
Anyone placing an order for an entry-level Tesla Model 3 Standard Range+ now will have to wait until early next year to get his/her hands on the electric car as the company has sold out the EV for 2021.
According to the California-headquartered manufacturer’s online configurator, the estimated delivery time of the newly ordered Tesla Model 3 Standard Range+ is now January 2022. The estimated delivery time means that those placing orders now will have to wait for at least 4.5 months to get the EV. Basically, it means that all of the entry-level EVs have already sold out for this year.
In the case of the Long Range AWD versions, buyers will have to wait until the month of November this year, while the Performance trims will take 4-7 weeks to reach door steps of Tesla customers.
In short, estimated delivery time for the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range+ is now January 2022. Previously, it was 8-14 weeks. For the Performance version, estimated delivery time is 4–7 weeks, and there is no change in the delivery time of the Long Range and Plaid versions. Thus, the flagship models seem to be the most constrained.
It is quite difficult to evaluate how the changes relate to supply of the EVs and their demand, but it is crystal clear that the manufacturer is prioritizing the higher-price, higher-margin trims. It is the same with the all-electric Model Y compact crossover utility vehicle, which is currently being produced in the company’s Chinese mega factory.
The Tesla Model 3 Standard Range+ features single speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drivetrain, and comes equipped with front & rear suspension, aluminum18-inch by 8.5-inch wheels. It is quite impressive in terms of battery range and charge time. It has a 50-kWh battery pack, which delivers a range of 263 miles on a single full charge, and takes 8.5 hours to get fully replenished using 220/240V charger.
Bluetooth connection, smart device integration, wifi hotspot, auxiliary audio input, mp3 player, bucket seats, premium synthetic seats, woodgrain interior trim, and sun/moon roof come as standard features. Warranty makes the deal even sweater. Basic warranty is available for 4 years or 50,000 miles, warranty covering corrosion, drivetrain, and roadside assistance are available for 12 Years (unlimited miles), 8 years or 100,000 miles, and 4 years or 50,000 miles, respectively.
