I literally has on the order page (lower right corner) from the launch that "Tri-Motor AWD production is expected to begin in late 2022" a year after the other models in "late 2021." So yes, originally it was supposed to be dual and single motor first followed by tri motor a year later.

Yeah, that blows.....had I known tri-motors were coming first I would have ordered one instead of a dual. I have low res number (59XX)......any chance I'll be contacted with an offer to upgrade to a tri-motor, or am I now screwed?

‘This is exactly how I remember too, dual and single were originally going to be the launch pair, then when there were few single motor orders they switched.

Remember this was before the plaid powertrain had been finalised. Will be different now.

what I find funny is people bemoaning the 19.3% gross margin as some catastrophe, where any vehicle manufacturer would kill for that result and be paraded around like gods.
Still stuck in FUD city

Yes. Originally, that's what the order page said.

2nd quarter is going to kill last years 280,000 .. people forget Shanghai closure.

The FUD is amazing... 'Tesla has no demand' - what happened to that Narrative we heard all though the 4th quarter?

It changed to 'Tesla' has started a price war. They knew profit margins would be lower, so they milked it. Brilliant. The time will come.

‘Tesla stock is going to until we get a few clear and obvious winds under our belt, this quarter was passable, 1st quarter was enough to get us out of the totally oversold place it was.

I think Cybertruck will do it. Maybe sooner.

The point was for Tesla to know what people would select as a price and what AWD/range they wanted.

When your number comes up, they'll call you, regardless of what model you selected.

My early number was 10k I’m sticking with it.

I think by the time the launch event happens there will be around 300 trucks per week and they build up a bit of inventory before first customer deliveries. That’s what they did with the Y.
I suspect they also have some VIP reservations like Jay Leno that will be serviced early. I wonder how many like that?
