We all know that initially Model 3 has production issues and all cars Tesla made are for the long pre order backlog.

However recently I have been reached by numerous Tesla sales person for end of year deliverable Model 3s.

I understand that federal tax benefit is going away but does this also mean Tesla has already cleared up the backlog and having trouble selling cars to be made in Dec?

Is Tesla Model 3 not selling well recently?

  • Thank you all for donating to the car battery technology. In few years, 50% of what you paid for will be deemed unusable and you will need to replace the battery.

      Prius warrenty is 150k / 10 years.

      There are cases of prius going over 500k miles on the original batteries.

      Just watched a video on this (hoovies garage in YouTube) and he mentioned tesla is keeping data on this. They are seeing over 90% battery life at 180,000 miles

    • Nah man fake news. It’s a Panasonic battery and they are the same. Just google “fast charging Tesla problems”. There is an electrek article on this.
      I am not trashing anyone Tesla basically pays my mortgage I am coming from an engineering perspective.

      What evidence do you have. All I see is information contrary to what you're saying.

    Yeah, I have mine ready in 10 days. A great car, beats my BMW. Lol. But you can easily tell they’re doing a rush job due to year-end flooding orders.

      Don’t be pendantic. He’s clearly using M3 as shorthand for Model3

      Yeah, M3=Model 3. Tesla forum term. Lol

      It’s kinda like calling Michael B Jordan, Michael Jordan.

      I agree shouldn't really call Model 3, M3. To car people it's a bit confusing when you also talk about BMWs

    They're maximizing federal benefit. Shit is selling like absolute hotcakes and outselling its segment nd cars all over other segments. What is the point of this post? You want one and are on the fence? What?

    Its a great car. If you want to buy later then you should buy it now to get tax credit.

    the thing about a 3 is it’s not an S.

    Where do you live , close to the factory where they can deliver you a car for 1/10th the effort ?

    It’s a smart strategy. Bonuses are being paid. Federal Tax credit is about to be cut.

    Minor anecdata: In my red-state city, supercharger center recently got installed. Drove past it and all units were simultaneously in use.

    Extrapolate of that what you wish.
