Elon Musk’s Mother Can’t “Jump The [Model 3 Reservation] Line” Despite Strong Tesla Connections
There’s no jumping the Tesla Model 3 reservation line for Maye Musk, mother of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Maye Musk told the interviewer that despite her strong familial ties to Tesla, even she can’t get moved up in the Model 3 reservation queue.
Maye Musk stated:
“I haven’t gotten the 3 yet.”
“I’m at around 300,000 [on the waiting list]. Even though I have good connections, I can’t jump the line.”
Maye isn’t a Tesla employee, so that alone knocks her down the list. She resides in Marina Del Ray, California, which is a few hundred miles from Tesla’s Fremont factory.
Maye and Elon aren’t often seen together in public, but they do show affection in the public sphere from time to time via Twitter:
The Model 3 reservation queue is supposedly ~450,000 deep, so Maye is nearer to the back of the line.
It’s good to know that Tesla isn’t bumping connected individual up towards the front of the line for reasons that other reservation holders would likely deem unacceptable.
We all must wait for our time.
