One third of the people who chose to go with the Tesla Model 3 decided that they cannot wait for its arrival and so they have gone with other vehicles from Tesla, including the Model S and Model X.
Tesla started offering a two year lease and this paid as it brought attention to the Tesla Model 3 even before the vehicle went into production. The scheme was made available during August and September and it meant that people who had reserved the Tesla Model 3 were able to get into the brand. They could lease the Tesla Model S for about $600 per month and Tesla also offered reservations for the Tesla Model X too.
The Tesla Model 3 has seen around 400,000 pre-orders but a lot of people now don’t want to wait for two years to get their vehicle. Some have chosen to go ahead and go with the Tesla Model S or Model X but then the Model X comes with a price tag that happens to be $31k more than that of the Model 3.
