Tesla is certainly an American company to the bone, North America in fact remains the company's main market, Elon Musk and his associates, however, are also betting on foreign countries - especially on Europe. Precisely because of the old continent it takes longer to receive a Tesla at home.
It seems incredible but that's what's happening right now: the huge demand for Tesla cars in Europe and other markets around the world is making postpone delivery times in the USA. At the beginning of October the waiting times for a shiny new Model 3 were around 2-3 weeks, now we have moved on to 6-10 weeks for the Standard Range Plus and the Long Range, while for the Performance the wait is 8-10 weeks.
Different speech in Spain for example, where the Model 3 Standard Range Plus is delivered in November by ordering it at the time of writing. The same goes for Belgium, the UK, Holland, which means 4 weeks of waiting at most. Of course, someone could object: what if delivery times in the USA had increased due to the great home demand?
It was actually only one person who gave the "blame" to Europe source close to Tesla itself, which has also put Australia and China in the cauldron - where we must remember only now that the new Gigafactory 3 has come into operation. We will see if the American delays will influence the sales of the last quarter of the year, during which the Musk company would like to exceed 100.000 deliveries...
