Model 3 Reservations FAQ
Here’s more information on what you can expect next with your Model 3 reservation:
How can I check my estimated delivery window?
Model 3 reservation holders can check their latest delivery timing estimate in their Tesla Account.
When will I be invited to configure my Model 3, and when can I take delivery?
Model 3 reservation holders are receiving invitations to order and design Model 3 based on the time and date that they placed their reservation. Deliveries have started in the U.S. and Canada, with other international deliveries starting in 2019. As you design your Model 3, you will see an estimated delivery timing—which will be based on your location and configuration options. If you would like to wait for a version of Model 3 that is not yet in production, you can choose to hold your place in line and be notified when your desired options become available.
How will I receive an invitation to configure my Model 3?
We will send you an invitation to configure your Model 3 to the email address you used to place your reservation. Confirm your email address is up to date. Invitations will be sent based on the date and time you placed your reservation, and if we have started production for your country.

Model 3 comes standard with the hardware necessary to utilize the global Tesla Supercharger Network. A small fee will apply for Supercharging—which is only a fraction of the cost of gas.
