It looks like there may be bad news for anyone who has pre-ordered the Tesla Model 3 as the wait to get your hands on the new car may be extended by a few years.
This startling news comes from an analyst who has said that the Tesla Model 3 may not arrive until the end of 2018. If so this would be one year later than Elon Musk said it would be.
Tesla revealed that the production of the Tesla Model 3 is going to start in the middle of 2017; however the analyst believes that this could be pushed back until 2018. The same analyst thinks that the car maker will produced around 60,000 units of the Model 3 during 2019 and 130,000 in 2020. This would fall below the speculated 400,000 units that Elon Musk predicted.
If this proves to be true then some of the people who pre-ordered their Tesla Model 3 could be left waiting to get their hands on the vehicle until 2021. This means it would be six years after they placed orders for the vehicle.
Of course a delay in the arrival of the Tesla Model 3 may help the Chevrolet Bolt get the head start that it needs in the EV market.
