Tesla Details Model 3 Shipping Priority for Existing Customers

Tesla has announced how it will start delivering the upcoming Model 3 all over the world. Unlike previous releases, existing Tesla customers will have priority over people who never owned a Tesla car before.

However, even with priority, deliveries will begin on the West Coast, in North America first. Once production is raised to an acceptable output, Tesla will start delivering cars towards the East.

Before it covers North America entirely, Tesla will start delivering the Model 3 in Europe, APAC, and right-hand drive markets.

Tesla has already specified that it is impossible to ship the new Model 3 to all regions simultaneously, as it has to adapt production to market-specific regulations, and this does not happen overnight.

Tesla claims that this delivery strategy is the best option to achieve a top level of customer satisfaction. So, if you want a Model 3 and feel disappointed by the long waiting time until delivery, do not get upset, as Tesla is doing the best it can to deliver the new car as fast as possible.

As you already know, Tesla will unveil the Model 3 on March 31. The reveal will be online on at 8:30 pm PT. The company has already opened the ordering books for reservations, and the cost of booking in the USA is approximately $1,000.

If the client decides to cancel the reservation and not proceed with an order, Tesla offers a full refund, or the possibility of changing the direction to a Model S or Model X instead.

Like with other models, Tesla allows customers to select a preferred delivery time frame. Clients can delay the delivery of their new Tesla by up to six months.

As the company officials explain on the dedicated page, the voluntary delay allows customers to keep their current cars until the end of the lease, or to get the new vehicle just before a planned trip. Either way, Tesla has these “Delivery Experience Specialists” that work with the customers to ensure the best experience possible.
