Some Tesla customers have reported that the recently purchased Model 3 and Model Y do not have USB ports. The problem was first identified by Electrek. Tesla reportedly tells its customers how the lack of a chip is to blame.
As noted by Electrek, the issue did not appear until November 11 and only seems to affect the Model 3 and Model Y. Recent buyers have turned to Reddit to express concerns about missing ports. Most of them reported a lack of USB type-c ports on the center console and near the rear seats. There are many who also claim that their EV wireless charger also does not work.
Some buyers also claim that Tesla did not even tell them that their cars would not have USB ports, according to Electrek. Others, after reading reports from others about the lack of doors, realized that their own car did not have them either.
Users who have been able to contact Tesla say the ports will be available from December and any buyer will be able to make an appointment to install them. Obviously, this is not a guarantee that the components will be available at that time. So users just have to accept how, for the time being, they are driving with an expensive battery that does not even charge their devices.
The lack of a chip has spread to many areas of technology and the automotive industry is no exception. Some of the new BMW models will not have a touch screen, nor will buyers be able to install it later. Even GM has been negatively affected by this shortage, as it already had to install wireless charging and leave the fuel management unit on some of its newer vehicles. It even removed Cadillac’s hands-free Super Cruise feature for lack of it. With all that happening, it does not seem like a good time to buy a car.
