Tesla has updated delivery schedules on new car orders and showed that several models, especially the Model Y, were sold this year in the US — even after the price hike.
There is currently a rush of electric vehicle demand as technology is gaining momentum naturally and through increased gas prices.
As for Tesla, we previously reported that it significantly increased the rate of demand in many regions of the United States.
The best way to keep track of backlogs is to look at Tesla’s delivery timelines for new orders on its online configuration tool.
Today, Tesla has updated all delivery schedules across the lineup and is showing a solid backlog of orders, especially for the Model Y.
The base version of the Model Y, which now retails for $63,000 after recent price increases, is now being delivered between January 2023 and April 2023, according to the online component:
As mentioned earlier, Tesla allows for faster deliveries if you order more options, such as larger wheels, a fully autonomous driving package (FSD) or a performance version.
But the new order with any of those options will continue to push the order into the second half of the year.
Electrek tip: If you want the car faster and don’t want to pay $12,000 for an FSD, your best option is to order the Model Y Performance. After the recent price increases, it’s actually only $3,000 more expensive than the Y Long Range with 20 wheels, essentially the same car but with slightly faster acceleration on the Performance Edition.
The Model 3 also got delivery schedule updates, but it actually makes more sense than the Model Y.
The base version of the Model 3, Tesla’s cheapest starting at $47,000, is still getting delivery in 2022 for new orders: July-September 2022.
You can get the Model 3 a month faster by adding 19-inch wheels, which are $1,500 more expensive.
You also get a month if you want to upgrade to the Model 3 Long Range: June – August 2022.
The performance version is listed to be delivered from June to July 2023.
Electric Advice: The Model 3 seems to have been on sale for about three months in the US, which isn’t too bad compared to the Model Y. But if you want a very fast Tesla, the quickest timeline is to order a base Model 3 and add an FSD package, which can make you You suddenly get the car as soon as April. Tesla really wants $12,000 for the FSD.
The Model S has also gotten an update and Tesla also has a significant backlog of orders for its flagship sedan – although that’s not necessarily due to increased demand but the fact that Tesla is still catching up after the car went out of production for the past half year.
New orders for the basic version, now starting at $100,000 after a recent price increase, are now delivered in “November 2022 – January 2023”:
You can get the car a little faster by adding options, as with the other models, but don’t expect the car until later in the second half of the year.
The situation is even worse for the Model X, which has been out of production for longer than the Model S last year.
The base version of the Model X in a five-seat configuration was not delivered until the second quarter of 2023:
If you opt for the six- or seven-seat configuration, you can have it sooner, but you’ll still have to wait until at least December 2022.
The X Plaid has a faster “August – October 2022” delivery schedule, but is only available in a six-seat configuration.
Adding the $12,000 FSD package doesn’t affect the Model S or Model X schedule as much as the Model 3 and Model Y.
