Prepare for Delivery: update

April 2020. California.

Update: Around March 25, 2020 Tesla reached out and indicated that we could get delivery of our reserved Model Y by March 31.

I was very surprised given the current situation with the coronavirus. I assumed we’d be waiting till late spring, summer, or whenever the factory can safely re-open. So we got all of our paperwork in order to take delivery, but in the end they did not have a Midnight Silver unit with our config. There was one blue Model Y with 20 inch wheels we could have taken, but my wife will be the primary driver and she is not a fan of the blue. So for now we remain hunkered down, waiting with with everyone else until the factory reopens. Keep safe everyone.

We reserved our Model Y online during the Tesla Model Y reveal event on March 14, 2019.

We ordered our Model Y during Tesla’s reveal event in March of 2019 and prepared for a long wait – after all we got our Model 3 two years after reserving the car. But things are moving along more quickly at Tesla this time around.

First we read the news that those who ordered the performance version of the Model Y were informed of potential delivery coming up soon in the last 2 weeks of March. And then like others who had reserved other versions of the Model Y (we reserved the dual motor, long-range AWD version), our account told us to get prepared. Stay tuned, I’ll provide updates as this moves forward.
