Tesla investor and enthusiast Sawyer Merritt (@SawyerMerritt) confirmed last night anyone who put in an order for a refreshed Tesla Model S or Model X before May 6 should now have the estimated delivery timeline updated on their Tesla account.

Tesla had previously suspended Model S and Model X production ahead of a design refresh for both vehicles, and the Model 3 and Model Y taking precedence due to overwhelming demand for Tesla’s newer, more affordable offerings.
Tesla updated its online vehicle configurator on May 6, increasing the prices of both the Model 3 and Model Y, and introducing new estimated delivery times for the Model S and Model X.
Customers have just now started to receive updated delivery timelines for the Model S and Model X on their Tesla accounts, 123 days after Model S/X production was scheduled to restart after facing a number of delays.
Many awaiting Model S and Model X deliveries have already confirmed that their estimated delivery timelines have been updated. However, it looks like not everyone has received updated delivery timelines and they’re being rolled out gradually.
Tesla has seen unwavering demand for its electric vehicles across the globe, and while the Model S and Model X lag behind the Model 3 and Model Y, they are no different.
Just yesterday, a pair of Tesla Model S Plaid vehicles were spotted at Laguna Seca Raceway in California, in what appeared to be attempts to set new track records in the upcoming electric sedan.
