The recent news of Tesla offering either 2 years of free Supercharging or a free upgrade prompted me to ask Elon about the fairness of this considering a lot of people still haven’t received this orders whereas others can walk in and get perks.

Obviously this isn’t a fair practice given cars in transit like mine but also incentivizes people to wait until the end of a quarter to buy.

Agreed. I followed up on your Tweet, as I’m getting delivery of mine 28th of September. The Delivery Team was unreachable for a week (been waiting for 4 weeks), and then they reach out and it’s pick it up on the 28th or we will release it to someone else. Had to change some plans, and now come to know that even though I’m waiting for 4 weeks and got 2 weeks to go, I won’t be getting any discounts or free supercharging. Not really a good strategy and experience so far with Tesla.

I didn’t understand the two deviations thing either when they texted me about it. Didn’t get a supercharging offer, but got free wheel upgrade and $1000 off. We’re those the deviations?

When did you place your order? Did they honor it even though you’re receiving the car until the end of the month but had planed the order before?

There was some miscommunication with Tesla as to who got deviations. It was for people who ordered but still didn’t have VINs and couldn’t be guaranteed delivery by EOQ. In my case the length of time waiting for a car was a factor in them granting me a deviation (white interior) because I turned down the free Supercharging. Technically I should not have gotten one but the sales people made a special case for a few of us waiting for P3Ds since July/August
