Some of the recent Model 3 e Model Y have been delivered no USB ports, without the new buyers being informed before the arrival of the cars. According to Tesla spokesmen, the vehicles would be incomplete due to the international crisis in the production of semiconductors, which is impacting, among other sectors, also that of cars, reducing production and raising the prices of the few new units produced.
Tesla Model 3 and Model Y without USB ports
Reports of missing USB ports appear to have started with cars delivered on 11 November. On the other hand, Tesla is certainly not the first car manufacturer affected by the global chip shortage: just a few days ago we reported how BMW is forced to deliver some of its vehicles without touchscreens. If the Bavarian company applies discounts of up to $500 for vehicles delivered without a touchscreen, Tesla promises theinstalling USB ports after purchasewhen the materials become available again.
The Tesla assistance service has, in fact, communicated to some of the interested owners that they can call to make an appointment for the installation of the missing parts. The first new Tesla owners are expected to be summoned in December.
