Tesla has refunded tens of thousands of Model 3 deposits

We can’t believe that it’s been a little over two years since people camped outside overnight to be among the first to get their names on a waiting list for what was a yet to be driven and produced Tesla Model 3.

Although production began last summer, the whole thing’s been a disaster. Whether it be endless production delays, quality issues or more recently, a shift in production targets where the promised affordable $35,000 Model 3 might not see the light of day this year.

With stories of bankruptcy, assembly line issues and more, it is understandable that patience has or is running out for those that were hoping for a new in 2018.

Of the 455,000 official reservations, more than 63,000 people have decided to go shopping elsewhere for their next car. This past April, Musk announced that the Model 3 would be delayed a further 6 to 9 months – that’s when the majority of cancelations took place.
