Customers will have to wait for the base version of the Tesla Model S until February or March

The fate of the oldest of the mass electric vehicles of the Tesla brand, the Model S, has made strange turns more than once at the stage of planned renovation this year. In the first quarter, the company did not supply electric vehicles of this model at all, as it was preparing an updated version for the announcement, and those wishing to order the basic version of the Model S will now have to be patient until February or March.

Not so long ago, as noted ElectrekNew customers for the base Tesla Model S could have expected to receive Long Range EVs by September or October, but this week the timeline has shifted to February or March next year. Deliveries of the more expensive Tesla S Plaid, subject to order in July, were supposed to start in August, but now they are shifted to September or October this year.

Something strange was also happening with the delivery of already produced copies of the Tesla Model S last week. Customers’ cars went to dealers, but they were not handed out to customers for a week. The reasons for the delay were not explained, and it is not yet possible to establish their possible connection with the increase in the delivery time of new electric vehicles. Now the older Tesla models are not a priority for the company in terms of supply, so their production program may well suffer from a shortage of components, which the manufacturer fought quite effectively during the first half of the year. Everything is aggravated by the fact that the company is engaged in the release of Tesla Model S only in the United States, and local automakers suffer more from the shortage of chips due to the transport factor.
