Tesla appears to have a demand problem, it seems. After seeing estimated delivery dates for new orders of entry Model Y configurations to July 2022 in the U.S., dates for new Model S and Model X orders have similarly been pushed further into the new year.

For new orders of Tesla’s Model X refresh, particularly the entry Long Range, it’s now showing an estimated delivery date of September 2022, which is a staggering 11 months from now (via @SawyerMerritt).

That’s almost a one-year wait for a new Model X, if these estimated delivery dates stand.

The Model X Plaid is showing an estimated delivery date of July 2022.

Earlier today, we reported one of the first Model X Long Range deliveries could deliver by tomorrow to a customer in California.

As for the entry Model S Long Range, it also saw its delivery dates slip, now showing June 2022, similarly spotted by @SawyerMerritt. That’s a whopping 8 months from now.

As for the Model S Plaid, which starts at $129,990 USD, its estimated delivery dates actually improved, to now show December 2021.

Tesla continues to grapple with a global semiconductor shortage, along with shortages in its supply chain. Yet despite these factors outside of its control, Tesla hit a record number of deliveries in Q3, seeing over 241,000 vehicles delivered.

When the company’s upcoming Gigafactories in Texas and Germany go online, expected later this year, the company may be able to improve supply, should it have all the parts to build and finish cars.

Tesla is set to release its Q3 2021 earnings on October 20, 2021.
