Tesla has delivered just over 4,600 EVs in Australia so far this year, although it delivered fewer than 250 cars in the second quarter. This is about to change with the latest updates to estimated delivery dates for local order holders.

Unsurprisingly, with the massive interest in Tesla, there are thousands of order holders in Australia eagerly awaiting delivery of their new EVs.

The Driven understands that some have been waiting since last November. That’s about to change, as order holders are now reporting that delivery dates have been pushed back to the second week of August, which is just a few weeks away.

Many of these yet-to-be-delivered EVs from last year’s orders include dual-motor variants of the Tesla Model 3, the long-range version and the much faster Performance version. The next batch also includes some RWD customer orders that were placed in January this year.

Recent Model Y orders are also jumping the queue

Orders for Model Y opened its doors last month and even Tesla was stunned by the level of demand for electric SUVs from a right-hand drive market like ours. Driven has been notified by several Melbourne and Sydney order holders of the rear-wheel drive Y configuration that their expected delivery dates have also been updated.

It’s also sold by the second week of August, which will match Model 3 deliveries. This is great news for those customers who have been waiting a long time to get behind the wheel of Tesla’s family EV SUV.

It also means that many holders of Model 3 orders from earlier in the year are still waiting for their EVs to arrive on our shores.

Those customers will have to wait a little longer, and with the upgrade of the Tesla Model 3 production line in Shanghai now complete, Tesla is aiming to bring as many EVs to our market as possible in the coming months.

Electric car uptake in Australia is set to really pick up in the second half of 2022.
