Tesla pushes back Model 3 delivery times in Germany after price cuts

0 18

Delivery times on the rear-wheel drive Model Y, which saw the biggest price cut of 17%, had already been pushed to February to March from January to March.

The website showed that the expected delivery of Model Y Long Range and Performance vehicles remained the same on Fridays in January to March.

Tesla’s delivery times are still well ahead of other competitors in Germany, according to car comparison portal carwow.

Waiting times for a Mercedes-Benz electric car ranged from four to nine months, a list published on the portal’s website showed on January 11, rising to three to 12 months for a BMW and from seven to 18 months for Audi.

Volkswagen ID.4 customers can expect 11-13 months for their cars, according to the website.

Still, the American EV maker hit its target of producing 3,000 cars a week from its Grunheide plant later than planned, a sign that production is back.

The company cut prices globally on the Model 3 and Model Y last week, reversing course from the profit-on-volume strategy deployed in the industry since the pandemic increased -prices to overcome shortages in the supply chain.
