It will soon be a full year since Tesla last introduced the new Model S and Model X to Europe. The two premium electric cars were introduced in updated form in January, and indeed At the end of 2020, Tesla stopped producing older versions. In the US, too, customers have had to wait a long time for the first update to be delivered, but outside of Tesla’s home country (as well as more recently Canada) there is still something to see. According to the component, anyone ordering new products in Germany today will have to wait for their Model S or Model X until the end of 2022. However, in China, the first new Model S is supposed to be available in March, according to the Tesla CEO. Elon Musk.
Information from the Tesla coach on Twitter
In its configurator for China, Tesla is currently naming the end of next year as the estimated delivery date. As in Europe, it applies equally to the Model S and Model X, including their new Plaid three-engine versions. The Far Eastern country already has its own giant factory, which is In increasing numbers of Model 3 and Model Y also for export markets produced. However, the premium Model S and X will still be made only at the US plant in Fremont, so China will also have to wait until Tesla plans to provide export capacity there.
According to CEO Elon Musk, this could happen earlier than the component currently suggests. After he praised the Model S Plaid (see photo above) as “sickkkk!!!” (roughly: “geillll!!!”) On Sunday for no apparent reason on Twitter, one of his Asian followers asked when China was supposed to come. “Maybe around March,” replied the Tesla boss.
Maybe around March

This doesn’t seem like a fixed commitment, but it’s new information. It notes that the late dates shown in the Configuration Tool for China and Europe only apply to existing new orders, not to customers who have already decided on a Model S or Model X previously. In Europe, Tesla previously held this information more and more. When it was introduced in January, the component was still showing September 2021, a little later in November, and as recently as October, the estimated date jumped after several intermediate steps Another six months until the end of 2022.
There is no date for the Model S and Model X in the USA
Rumor has it that the first Model S panels will be delivered in Europe as early as the fourth quarter of this year, which has yet to be confirmed. But Musk’s new statement indicates that Tesla no longer wants to produce at least the first of its premium models exclusively for its home continent. Meanwhile, in the United States, another interesting change in the component is observed. According to the information out there, the newly ordered Model S tiles will be delivered in January or February 2022, and the Model X is slated to be delivered in May or June. However, for the base versions of these two electric cars, Tesla no longer gives an estimated date.
