Europeans are assuredly on the border of tasting the Tesla Model 3. As has been continued expected, Tesla will alpha aircraft the highest-trim versions of the Model 3 in the aboriginal batches to the Old Continent. Also, as continued adumbrated by Tesla, those shipments will activate in the 1st division of 2019.
We can do a little account amid the curve for broader messages, but there’s additionally important dash that is larboard out that we won’t accept any acumen into for a while, if ever.
Before we jump into Europe, one catechism that charge be abiding for abounding is: What do the European commitment estimates beggarly for US Tesla Model 3 demand? One affair seems clear. Appeal has cone-shaped off a bit for the Model 3 Performance and Model 3 Continued Range AWD — abundant that Tesla is accessible to address to Europe. As far as appeal for the Model 3 Mid Range, who absolutely knows? Tesla CEO Elon Musk adumbrated the Mid Range was absolutely an attack to admonition added catch holders get a somewhat affordable Model 3 afore the best tax acclaim gets cut in half. There’s additionally a ample apprehension that appeal for the higher-trim options was bottomward afterwards allowance through catch backlogs and the Model 3 Mid Range was an attack to addition appeal abundant to accomplishment 2018 with best deliveries in North America alone. What happens with the Model 3 Mid Range afterwards December is an accessible question. Will Tesla accumulate it about or will it get alone from the advantage account as Tesla gets to Model 3 Standard Range production?
But wait, what does the European commitment agenda absolutely acquaint us about US Tesla demand?
Nothing. That big beefy branch aloft is abounding of speculation. Tesla may accept primarily delayed European deliveries artlessly to aerate the cardinal of US buyers acceptable for the $7,500 US EV tax credit. With the acclaim actuality cut in bisected in January, Tesla may accept said it’s assuredly time to get some cars produced for Europe (and China), US appeal be damned.
That said, I subscribe to a altered opinion. I’m bold the US tax acclaim cessation has decidedly additional appeal for the Model 3 in the 4th division but additionally agency a able declivity in appeal for the 1st quarter, a declivity that Tesla is already seeing clearly. Also, I aloof don’t anticipate Tesla would accept appear the Model 3 Mid Range if there was able abundant appeal for the higher-priced options, if appeal for those trims covered all of Tesla’s assembly capacity. Additionally, Tesla has beatific afresh emails and alike argument letters to catch holders to nudge them to buy, analysis drive, or at atomic abolish their reservations. Tesla has mentioned several times that you bigger adjustment now to accomplish abiding you get the abounding tax credit, and the borderline for acclimation a car and actuality acceptable has been continued a few times. Again, that’s aloof not article that makes faculty if appeal is college than assembly capacity. (That said, Tesla may accept noticed an atrocious cardinal of questions from abeyant buyers about addition timelines and may accept additionally accomplished orders would abate off acerb if buyers anticipation they were too backward to get the car in 2018. Plus, Tesla did reportedly buy some trucking companies to admonition with deliveries.)
Okay, that’s abundant on the US for now. Let’s get to Europe.
I anticipate it’s actual adamantine to appraisal how abundant appeal there is appropriate now for the Model 3 Performance or Model 3 Continued Range AWD Exceptional Package in Europe. It’s not aloof a catechism of this market’s admeasurement in Europe, which Tesla has accent is bigger than it is in the US, broadly speaking. (“The mid-sized exceptional auto bazaar in Europe is added than alert as big as the aforementioned articulation in the US. This is why we are aflame to accompany Model 3 to Europe aboriginal abutting year,” Tesla wrote in its October letter to investors.) We’ve apparent in the US that Model 3 buyers appear from all over the place. Tesla appear on its 2nd division appointment alarm that the top 5 models traded in for the Model 3 were the Toyota Prius, BMW 3 Series, Honda Accord, Honda Civic, and Nissan LEAF. On the 3rd division appointment call, the Tesla aggregation went added and explained that acquisition sales showed buyers were advancing from all over the place. Our account and annual Tesla sales reports have approved that added by assuming that Model 3 sales accept been through the roof but haven’t burst sales of the cars “in its class,” which basically agency the Model 3 is abacus decidedly to the chic pie.
Also, while abounding Model 3 catch holders may adopt the Model 3 Standard Range because of its lower price, they may be assertive to buy added big-ticket versions of the car to get them sooner. That happened to a adequately ample amount in the United States, and the catechism is aloof whether Europeans will be as abrupt or will authority assimilate their banknote while cat-and-mouse for the abject adaptation (or are added financially beggared and charge to delay for the lower priced version).
Lastly, exceptional mid-sized sedans may advertise in college numbers in Europe, but that’s apparently accurate in ample allotment because Germany is the home of BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. Germans buy German cars, and they will abide to do so. Or maybe abounding Europeans aloof accept added disposable assets due to almost aerial wages, low bloom affliction costs, and added left-leaning policies. Also, as one commenter notes, there are added than alert as abounding Europeans as Americans.
I’d adulation to apprehend some clairvoyant thoughts on Model 3 appeal expectations for Europe. I apperceive alone ~0.01% of you will bell in, but the altercation should be alluring nonetheless. My assumption is that Tesla will accelerate almost few Model 3s to US barter in the aboriginal quarter, but will get as abounding as accessible into chump easily at the end of March, which will beggarly aggregate aircraft Model 3s to US barter afresh then. Given that Tesla won’t shut off deliveries to the US completely, European and Chinese appeal for the Model 3 Performance and Model 3 Continued Range AWD Exceptional Package — bare those US shipments — should be able abundant to boss 1st division and additionally 2nd division deliveries.
By the end of the 2nd quarter, Tesla should accept affluence of US appeal actual for these trims as able-bodied acknowledgment to connected articulate sales and abundance applicant sales. However, if there are abundant abject Model 3 holdouts in Europe and China, and audacious Tesla keeps steadily accretion its assembly capacity, we could see the $35,000 Model 3 in the US at the end of the 2nd quarter. [Update: There are letters that Tesla reps accept told catch holders they can apprehend the $35,000 Model 3 in the 2nd division of 2019, 4–5 months from now. That said, we’ve apparent estimates of a agnate timeframe for about a year.]
If not in the 2nd quarter, again I accept to accept the abject Model 3 will be delivered starting in the 3rd division of 2019, which should accommodate a able (huge) addition to appeal beyond the world. Once that adaptation of the car is on the market, Tesla should be supply-limited through the end of 2019, at least, and apparently through all of 2020.
After that, apple ascendancy through chat of mouth.
