Some Tesla Models Are Now Sold Out With Deliveries Pushed Till Mid 2023 Despite Recent Price Hikes
Anyone wanting to get their hands on a new Tesla looks set to have a lengthy wait, at least in the United States.
A new report notes that multiple EV configurations are now sold out through to 2023 despite Tesla having consistently increased prices over the last few months.
As noted by Electrek, the Tesla Model Y is the EV that is most difficult to come by. Tesla has increased the price to a whopping $63,000 for the base model but even that car will see people wait until at least January 2023 for delivery — as long as April 2023 in some cases.
Ordering a base Model 3 will mean waiting until July through to September of this year, although the Performance version is now showing a delivery window of June or July 2023.
Those looking to bag a base Model S will wait until November 2022 through to January 223, while the five-seat configuration of the Model X means you’ll wait until the second quarter of 2023.
All of these cars have seen price increases recently but it still appears that Tesla can’t quite build them quickly enough.
Given that fact, why wouldn’t Tesla continue to increase its prices? The company says its price bumps are to accommodate the increasing cost of materials, but it does seem that there is room for a higher price while demand continues to be so impressive.
