Tesla demand appears to be getting out of hand, as new orders for entry Model S and Model X vehicles in the U.S. have reached estimated delivery dates of March 2023, which is a whopping 16-month wait (via @SawyerMerritt).
For the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Model S with entry 19-inch Tempest Wheels and the same entry version for the Model X with 20-inch Cyberstream wheels, the dates are currently showing as March 2023, which will surely seem ridiculous to casual Tesla observers.
Tesla’s entry Model 3 rear-wheel drive with 18-inch Aero Wheels is showing delivery estimates of October 2022, while the entry Model Y Long Range with 19-inch Gemini Wheels is showing the same estimated delivery date for new orders.
It’s clear the ongoing global semiconductor shortage, plus parts supply chain shortages are not helping the auto industry as a whole, including Tesla. But the electric automaker has been able to still churn out numbers in record numbers, showcasing an impressive third quarter that beat Wall Street estimates with over 241,000 vehicles delivered.
