The Tesla Model 3

Two weeks ago on Wednesday, April 13th, Tesla's vice president of business development, Diarmuid O'Connel stated that Tesla Model 3 reservations were nearing 400,000 units, an impressive figure for sure.

But are reservations still growing at a rapid pace? The answer appears to be no as just last Thursday (April 21st), Tesla CEO Elon Musk mentioned that same figure at a conference in Norway. Musk stated:

“We are now almost at 400,000 orders for the Model 3.”

Just to recap; in the first 3 days of availability, Model 3 reservations hit 276,000. That figure jumped to 325,000 at the end of the first week, and then to near 400,000 by the end of week two.  Now it seems (as one might expect), Model 3 reservations have moderated some, with that same level of "almost 400,000" being stated at the end of the third week of availability.

That's still a ton of electric cars that Tesla will have to produce in a somewhat timely matter, so we doubt Tesla cares that reservations have slowed for the time being, but with Musk being Musk, we're certain that the half-million milestone is a goal he'd like to see hit (and tweet about) well prior to the Model 3 entering production.
