Earlier this week, entry Tesla Model 3 and Model Y orders in the United States and Canada saw estimated delivery dates pushed back to March 2022 (via @SawyerMerritt).
Fast forward to the end of week and now the Model Y Long Range is seeing an even further estimated delivery date, now showing April 2022 for those in the U.S. and Canada, resulting in new orders seeing a wait time of six months.
Tesla’s Model Y Long Range, which includes dual motors and all-wheel drive, starts at $53,990 USD and $69,990 CAD, respectively. Orders require a non-refundable order fee of $250, which is essentially the price to pay to now put yourself into a long queue.
For the entry Model 3 Standard Range Plus, new orders are still showing estimated delivery dates of March 2022 in both countries, and that date could slip to match the Model Y, if Tesla is unable to keep up with demand, the ongoing global semiconductor shortage and supply chain pressures.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said earlier this week he believes the global semiconductor shortage is “short term” and will resolve itself in 2022.
