Tesla's estimated delivery times (for new orders) for all four electric car models available in the United States (Model 3, Model S, Model X, and Model Y) have continued to level off at 1-2 months over the past months.

The manufacturer's website indicates that in most cases, the new cars ordered today would be available in the May-June timeframe. An exception is the newly launched, upgraded Tesla Model 3 Performance, which has a slightly longer estimated delivery time—June 2024.

Tesla's EV supply exceeds demand

Tesla's expansion of EV manufacturing capacity, combined with challenging market conditions, has led to a reversal of the situation from a few years ago. Instead of long queues of customers waiting for cars, there are now short estimated delivery times and price cuts.

Separately, the Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck has an estimated delivery time in 2025, as the company is currently ramping up production and delivering vehicles to customers who placed pre-orders over the past few years.

Aside from the Tesla Cybertruck, Tesla no longer has a multi-month order backlog of EVs. In the past 17 months (since January 2023), the manufacturer applied a series of price cuts and offered attractive rebates and incentives for cars in its inventory.

Such a situation is expected to continue through 2024, as the year might not bring much sales growth. The first quarter was slower than Q1 2023.

In today's update, we will look at Tesla's estimated delivery times as of May 2, 2024. This gives us an idea of not only how long customers have to wait but also a hint at which models are in higher demand or might be more profitable (higher demand for particular versions).

The Tesla Model 3 is now available in three versions—the entry-level RWD, the Long Range AWD version, and the upgraded top-of-the-line Performance. According to the company's website, custom orders might be delivered in the May-June period (in June, in the case of the Performance version).

The Tesla Model Y, the most popular Tesla model, has a similar estimated delivery time for the May-June period in all three versions—the entry-level RWD, Long Range AWD, and Performance.

Please note that the entry-level AWD version (powered by 4680-type cells) is no longer available, as it was produced in limited volume in Texas.

In the case of the Tesla Model S, the situation remains stable as the estimated wait time for the car (both versions) is May-June.

Tesla Model X

The Tesla Model X does not have a "premium" wait time, as the estimated delivery time for both versions (Long Range AWD and Plaid) is May-June.

Customers will have to wait the longest for the all-new Tesla Cybertruck pickup, which entered production several months ago, in late 2023.

Custom orders placed today are expected to be completed in 2025, as the company first has to produce vehicles for customers in the queue. That's in the case of the AWD and Cyberbeast versions because the RWD version is not yet available (it will be in 2025, the company says).
