Tesla has increased the price of its non-refundable order fee in the USA and Canada. Previously, this fee was at $100, but has since increased to $250 for new orders.
The change was spotted on late Thursday evening by @SawyerMerritt.
Previously, Tesla would offer a refundable deposit of $2,500 when ordering a new vehicle such as the Model 3. But back in early 2020, Tesla changed this to add a $100 fee for customers when placing an order for a new vehicle.
Right now, Tesla is seeing some heavy demand for its vehicles, exacerbated by the global chip shortage. The Model 3 and Model Y are sold out for 2021, with estimated delivery dates showing January 2022 at the earliest.
