Here's How Long You Will Wait For A New Tesla In 2022 In The US

We have just checked the Tesla estimated delivery times (for new orders) of all four electric car models available in the U.S.

There are some interesting findings, as the hectic extension of delivery times has slowed down, and in some cases, even stopped or reversed. The prices have also remained unchanged since November 12.

Let’s start with the Model 3. The queue for the entry-level RWD version with an LFP battery appears to decrease as the estimated delivery time is the same as over one and a half months ago (June or October, depending on the wheel option). The Long Range AWD and Performance versions moved up a bit – to March and February. As we can see, the higher price/higher margin versions are prioritized (it will be common for all models).

In the case of the Model S Long Range, the estimated delivery time has decreased by some 4 months to July-November (effectively by almost six months). Not only that, the top-of-the-line Plaid version is available right away (December, 2021).

The Tesla Model X Long Range probably reached a balance between supply and demand, as the estimated delivery time moved up by roughly two months, to January-May 2023. In the case of the Plaid, it’s October 2022. We assume that those times might vary as the refreshed Model X is in a ramp-up phase.

Finally, there is the Tesla Model Y, which noted only a slight increase in estimated delivery time by one month (to July-November) in the case of the Long Range AWD version, and by two months (to March) in the case of the Performance version. Since more than six weeks passed by, effectively the queue remains the same.

Estimated delivery time (new orders) [change versus Nov 12]:

Tesla Model 3:

  • RWD:
    18″ Aero Wheels: October, 2022 (no change)
    19″ Sport Wheels ($1,500): June, 2022 (no change)
  • Long Range AWD: March, 2022 (previously December, 2021)
  • Performance: February, 2022 (previously December, 2021)

Tesla Model S:

  • Long Range:
    19″ Tempest Wheels: November, 2022 (previously March, 2023)
    21″ Arachnid Wheels ($4,500): July, 2022 (November, 2022)
  • Plaid: December, 2021 (no change)

Tesla Model X:

  • Long Range:
    20″ Cyberstream Wheels: May, 2023 (previously March, 2023)
    22″ Turbine Wheels ($5,500): January, 2023 (previously November, 2022)
  • Plaid: October, 2022 (previously August, 2022)

Tesla Model Y:

  • Long Range AWD:
    19″ Gemini Wheels: November, 2022 (previously October, 2022)
    20″ Induction Wheels ($2,000): July, 2022 (previously June, 2022)
  • Performance: March, 2022 (previously January, 2022)

2022 will be a very interesting year for Tesla in the U.S. The launch of the Giga Austin plant might increase the supply and shorten the waiting times. If that would happen, Tesla could lower the prices and increase the volume by making the cars more affordable.
