Existing Tesla Model X Orders Seeing Delivery Dates Pushed to April 2023

Model x delay

Those with Tesla Model X orders are seeing their estimated delivery dates pushed back to April 2023, a change made by the electric automaker on Wednesday evening.

Numerous Model X owners shared their new estimated delivery dates on Facebook, saying how example dates of July 2022 were suddenly changed to a range of “Dec 2022 – Apr 2023”.

These are for Model X orders made far before the global chip shortage and supply chain headwinds. One owner said they ordered in December 2020 and they are similarly seeing a new date range stretching to April 2023, nearly one year from now. Others that ordered in January 2021 are seeing the same dates far into the spring of 2023.

Owners detailed orders with Full Self-Driving added are getting the same “Dec 2022 to Apr 2023” estimated delivery date. Previously, some Tesla orders with FSD were being fast-tracked but that is no longer the case.

For new orders placed today, estimated delivery dates are similarly showing a timeframe well into the future, showing “Jan 2023 – Apr 2023”.

Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company might limit or stop taking orders of new cars, due to extensive wait times.

“Yeah, um, even before there was the supply chain issues Tesla demand exceeded production. So, now its demand is exceeding production to a ridiculous degree. We’re actually gonna limit, or just stop taking orders for anything beyond a certain period of time because some of the timing is like a year away,” said Musk at the FT Future of the Car conference.

“The frustration we’re seeing with customers is being unable to get them a car, not are they willing or interested in buying a car. I think zero about demand generation and a lot about production, engineering and supply chain,” added Musk.
