Demand for Teslas, and electric vehicles (EVs) in general, is sky-high right now, with supply issues exacerbating delayed delivery timelines in recent weeks.
Tesla has updated its Model 3 order page to include a delivery timeframe instead of showing a specific delivery month, reflecting the automaker’s U.S. orders (via @Tesla_Adri).
In addition to the switch, Tesla’s high demand is causing delivery timeframes to be pushed back in Europe, with the base-level rear-wheel-drive Model 3 and the long range all-wheel-drive variant showing a delivery timeframe of April to June 2023.
Tesla updated the Model 3 Delivery times in europe. Instead of giving a specific month they now show a timeframe, just like in the US.

The news comes just a couple of months after Tesla opened its Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg, the first of Tesla’s factories to hit Europe.
Following the factory’s opening, Tesla already plans to expand the site by another 100 hectares, according to a report from earlier this month.
The Tesla Model 3 sold out in Europe for the first quarter just a few days into January, prior to the automaker’s official opening of Giga Berlin.
