According to reports, some European consumers who ordered Tesla modely said the company may be expected to deliver new cars in Europe earlier than expected.
A source said that on the morning of October 27, he had a conversation with Tesla employees and received a text message from Tesla last week. The company said that the consumer’s scheduled modely would be delivered in December 2020. Later, Tesla issued a correction message, saying that this message is for model 3 subscribers.
However, a source from the Netherlands said that Tesla employees called him and said that the delivery time of modely should be in the first or second quarter of 2021, and the vehicles would be produced in the German super factory.
“This morning, I received a call from Tesla of the Netherlands and they asked me a few questions about the order,” the source said. In this conversation, a Tesla employee told me that it was possible for them to deliver to me vehicles produced in Berlin in the first or second quarter of 2021. They have just received an internal update on the process of building the Berlin factory. “
In the past few months, Tesla has been saying that it plans to start production of modely in the new plant in July 2021 after the installation of the production line at the Berlin plant. Previously, the production time of a number of Tesla vehicles exceeded expectations, including modely. After announcing that it will deliver modely in the summer of 2020, Tesla finally began delivering the new model in the United States in March this year.
All along, the production and delivery time of vehicles is a rough estimate, and Tesla rarely completes the production and delivery according to the time originally announced. With the rapid construction of the German plant, it can be expected that Tesla hopes to start production before the expected time.
In a recent update letter for the third quarter of 2020, Tesla said it still expected to start production in 2021, but did not specify a specific schedule. “Construction of the Berlin factory is progressing rapidly, buildings are under construction, and equipment will begin in the next few weeks,” Tesla wrote in the letter. At the same time, the team of the Berlin plant is also expanding, and the plant is expected to start production in 2021. “
In order to speed up the construction process, Tesla adopted the method of prefabrication in the construction of the German factory. As the construction process continues, we have reason to believe that Tesla is likely to start delivering new cars by July 2021.
The informant ordered modely in the Netherlands in April 2019. In addition to Europe, Tesla will also sell modely on a large scale in Asia, and its super factory in Shanghai, China, is expected to start producing the electric crossover vehicle by the end of 2020 or early 2021.
