Tesla just acquired enough trucking capacity to ensure Model 3 can be delivered in Q4

2018.42.8 brings with it ‘Track Mode’ for all the M3P ([regardless of having PUP or not]()). ‘Track Mode’ One of the main struggles that Tesla experienced during Q3 was delivering their cars to their customers (not building them, that was solved during Q3, but actually transporting them). Elon just announced on Twitter that Tesla has secured enough trucking capacity to ensure all Model 3s purchased before Nov 30 can be delivered by the end of the year. One of the metrics that Tesla is working hard on improving is the number of days from factory to customers, since that would increase their cash on hand substantially.
