In a recent interview, Elon said that Tesla might stop taking orders for anything beyond a certain period of time, right now the waiting time for most orders is 1 year. If they change the system, I wonder how they would do it, new orders open up at midnight 3 months in advance or something like that? One big problem with orders that take 1 year or close, is that I’m sure a decent percent changes their mind in the process and it also drives away some demand because they need a car sooner.From issue #216
Tesla just updated the price of its Model 3 SR+ lowering it to $37,990 (-$2k) in the US. Prices elsewhere remain untouched, at least for now.
Model S/Model X LR and Performance versions’ price has also been lowered to $74,990 and $79,990 respectively (-$5k), but they no longer come with free Supercharging.

To qualify for it, the purchase needs to be between Dec. 12th and Dec. 31st, and Standard Range Plus (SR+) variant is not included. Hope they make it to the 500,000 vehicles sold in 2020!

Tesla has had a bunch of complaints lately about Service and Delivery in Norway. Tesla’s strained distribution and service centers have meant long lines and complaints to authorities.

Model 3 and Model Y leases already came without an option to purchase the car at the end of the lease, and now, Tesla has extended this option to the Model S and X. One can assume that Tesla has figured out it is better for them to take the car back and use their used program to increase profits.From issue #212
Tesla is moving its lease experience to the Tesla Account.

Tesla announced last week that they were moving all their sales online. This week they announced a change of plans and will be closing only half of the stores that they first intended. As a result of keeping significantly more stores open, Tesla will need to raise vehicle prices by about 3% on average worldwide except for SR Model 3 that will keep the $35k price tag. The price increase is going out on Monday, March 18th, so if you were thinking about buying a Tesla and want to take advantage of the lower prices go ahead and order before Monday!
