Tesla is no longer offering new orders of its Dual Motor Model 3 Long Range in South Korea.

The company’s website was recently updated to grey out the option to place an order for a Long Range Model 3. The translated text reads, “available for order in 2022 due to supply shortage.” (via @hohocho)

The Model 3 Long Range is priced at $59,990,000 KRW ($52,080 USD). The Standard Range Plus and Performance versions are the only versions available to order.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during the company’s Q2 earnings call the global chip shortage “remains quite serious,” noting the shortfall of chips is limiting how many cars the company can produce and deliver to customers. While Musk said the chip shortage is “out of our control”, he did add “it does seem like it’s getting better”.

Earlier this month, it was reported Model 3 and Model Y sales surged in South Korean for the month of June. Tesla’s Model Y compact crossover SUV launched in South Korea back in February.
