Latest Tesla Referral Program Includes Model 3 Delivery Event, P100D Prizes

A Tesla launch event is always a big deal ... and none will be bigger than the Model 3

A Tesla launch event is always a big deal … and none will be bigger than the Model 3

Just as one referral program has closed at Tesla, another has replaced it.  Actually two.

As well as a new referral rewards program, the company has announced an “Annual Award” for Tesla customers who refer model Tesla Model S and Model X sales throughout the year, and top prizes for the fastest referrers.

Tesla Referral program rewards 7 leads with a trip to the Model 3 delivery party!

Most interesting in the traditional “Current Phase” of the program, is the offering to current owners the chance to attend the Tesla Model 3 delivery event!

7+ Qualifying Referrals
Owners who make 7 qualifying referrals will receive an invitation for themselves and a guest to attend our Model 3 delivery event.

Unfortunately, there is no actual date for the Tesla Model 3’s delivery event, but we do know it is on the horizon for the company after this incentive phase ends on March 15th.

Tesla has mentioned July as a ‘best case’ for the start of retail production for the Model 3.

As for the “Annual Awards“, the first person in each of Tesla’s 3 regions to net to 20 referrals will receive a free Model S P100D, or Model X P100D – their choice:

First to 20 Per Region – Ludicrous P100D Model S or Model X
The first person to refer 20 friends starting from January 16 in each sales region— North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific — will receive a P100D Model S or Model X. They will be invited to configure their award once all 20 friends have taken delivery of their new Tesla vehicles.

While all persons who reach 20 referrals in a year get a “weekend getaway at a destination charging resort, as well as the ability to swap their car with the latest Tesla of their choice for a week.”

Of course there are lots more prizes (and slightly more attainable) as part of the two-part Tesla Referral Program, which one can check out below:

    Strange to add the delivery prize when there is still no announcement of the last reveal. Maybe this is just a trick to make it seem like deliveries are closer than they really are. We have still not seen any spy shots of prototype vehicles built with production tooling, which was the last phase of X before “starting production.”

    Who won the reveal passes? Did they let them know already?

    1. jimjonjack&jill says:

      Musk came up with the Re-Usable Rocket……That is Not a SMALL Task to be taken lightly, No small potatoes there..Think about it…He was the 1st. One “EVER” In History to Deploy Payloads to outer space and have the Rocket Return & land Upright , Safe & Undamaged.. So Musk Can pretty Much do whatever Pleases him.. ..Cheers!

        Hey chatbot,

        maybe “phase”, “delivery” and “X” triggered the wrong neurons of your LSTM.

        That post was not about Space X.

        Nice shot 😉

    2. Taylor S Marks says:

      People who won tickets to Part 3 already know who they are, and they’ll probably get their tickets in ~2 weeks. I could imagine the event will take place anywhere between 3 and 10 weeks from now, and with the announcement of a delivery event, I’m leaning closer to the 3 week side.

      1. Josh Bryant says:

        Thanks for the info!

        Hoping we see the final product soon.

        1. Itsme says:

          What info? This same guy said that Tesla was retooling their factory during the holidays to start allowing for 400 kW charging. That all cars built after Jan 9 would have the upgrade. Why you ask? Because Tesla extended a discount to Europe. He has no clue, and is always pulling crap out of his bung. Kinda like how he says down below that Tesla doesn’t want any more deposits. That they are ‘anti-selling’ the mod three. That’s right. They are anti-selling it while promoting it at the same time through the latest referral program.

    3. Taylor S Marks says:

      Regarding “tricking” people about how close deliveries are, I think you have it backwards.

      Tesla is trying to anti-sell the Model 3. They already have so many deposits that even with their most optimistic production plans, they don’t think they’ll be able to fulfill new deposits until late 2018. If people thought the Model 3 was coming sooner, even more deposits would be made.

      Tesla doesn’t need more deposits. They won’t get more money from those deposits until late 2018 or beyond. What they want is more Model S and X sales – those are sales that can be recognized in this quarter. They’re trying to avoid the Osborne effect, of people who might buy the current product instead waiting to buy the next product.

      So Tesla is actually going to do everything in their power to have interested people buy the Model S and X, and not make deposits for the Model 3.

      1. Josh Bryant says:

        I agree. That is why I was surprised that this was part of the referral program right now.

      2. Kevin Dunbar says:

        You’re correct. If you order a Model 3, Tesla contacts you and asks if you want to test drive an S or an X….

  2. Rich says:

    “the Tesla Model 3’s delivery event”

    I wonder if the Tesla Model 3 Delivery Event will be the delivery of the 300 Model 3s that Tesla ordered parts for. Would the run of 300 be a production intent run? Beta? What’s the correct term?

    1. floydboy says:

      Delivery could mean ‘not really delivery’, but I’m kinda thinking “delivery event” means actual deliveries!

    2. Taylor S Marks says:

      Musk has said that it takes 40-90 days to go from ordering parts to delivering a car. So at worst, they’d only have to order parts in April for a July delivery.

      The 300 parts they’ve already ordered are for internal beta production.

      1. Loboc says:

        Where was the parts count reported?

        I’m having difficulty believing that M3 will ship in any quantity this year. Tesla misses estimates regularly. Always late and not enough units.

    3. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

      “Would the run of 300 be a production intent run? Beta? What’s the correct term?”

      I wouldn’t claim there is only one correct term, but “pre-production units” is one appropriate term.

      Tesla has used the term “beta” for software released to general customers, as in “AutoSteer (Beta)”. Therefore, I think the meaning of “beta” here would be too vague to carry the precise meaning you want. Just my opinion, of course, and no doubt some will call the pre-production Model ≡’s “beta” units.

      1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

        “Production prototype” is another appropriate term. I also see that Electrek used the term “beta prototype” in the article which Rich linked above.

      2. Josh Bryant says:

        On the S and X, Tesla used Alpha in place of “concept” and Beta in place of “production intent”.

        Musk has claimed to hate concept cars, since the production looks nothing like it. So the Alpha is the first crack at the production intent vehicles, then Beta is after refinement from feedback. Not sure if Beta means using production tooling, my guess is not necessarily.

        Here is Alpha S:

        Here is the Beta S, which is the same looks as 2012 production S:

          Good info. Thx.

      Rich said:

      “I wonder if the Tesla Model 3 Delivery Event will be the delivery of the 300 Model 3s that Tesla ordered parts for.”

      No. A Tesla “delivery event” is a media event where they show off the first few units off the production line, and put them into the hands of the new owners. They did that for the Model S and for the Model X.

      Obviously the Model ≡ delivery event won’t happen for some months, and obviously Tesla doesn’t yet know when that will happen.

      1. Rich says:

        It’ll be interesting to see how the parts for 300 Model 3s come into play. I’m expecting to see 100+ Model 3 running all over Cali. in the Mar/April time frame.

  3. Marco says:

    Parts for 300 cars doesn’t mean that 300 prototypes are built with that parts. I can imagine that a certain nummer those parts are being tested separately. Also that there are parts in different size / quality / supplier to compare.
