Did you not read the article you quoted? I think it pretty clearly said that the figures would not be released for another month, after the first 100 or so deliveries.edatoakrun wrote:Wonder if TSLA will reveal data from the “conditional fuel economy label” before or by tomorrow night?
And if so, will it be only for the optional-large-battery RWD versions it has said will be "delivered" tomorrow night, or show data for the entire model 3 range?
Which frankly probably doesn't affect anyone actually reading this (unless there just so happens to be a lucky Tesla employee at the head of the line on here--but somehow I don't think they are going to be all that concerned with the lack of a Moroney sticker anyway.
I would certainly characterize deposit-holders as being eager for more details coming out tomorrow or in the coming weeks. I think anxiety is probably somewhat of a misnomer. Of the 3 examples cited, one guy is nervous because Tesla hasn't updated their reservation numbers? Well I feel bad for him, but it doesn't seem like a rational thing to get worried about as a reservation holder. The only possible result for him is that he moves up in line if people canceled ahead of him. Otherwise it's more of a concern for Tesla investors, not Model 3 reservation holders. The second person already canceled 6 months ago, and the third canceled his reservation for reasons not even related to the handover event (and ironically since Musk pulled out of his dealings with Trump, I wonder if that changed his mind--too late of course--about whether to hold a reservation). To be fair if you're going to single out reasons why people have CANCELED their reservations, I think you have to consider the other 350,000+ (or whatever the number actually is) that RESERVED their Model 3's and still hold those reservations. I certainly don't doubt that people have or will drop their reservations as they learn more about the car. Maybe they don't like the screen, or the dashboard, or the option pricing isn't what they thought it would be, or they just put down their $1000 to hold a spot in line without knowing whether they'd like the final result or not (the first 125K or so were put down COMPLETELY sight unseen!) But is it fair to single out cancellations without acknowledging everyone that is keeping their reservations? Particularly since the number of reservations took EVERYONE (even Musk) by surprise?edatoakrun wrote:And many others seem to be hoping for some relief tomorrow night from model 3 anxiety:
