The Tesla Model S and Model X's estimated delivery times (for new orders) in the United States noticeably increased and are now up to a few months.

Let's recall that a few months ago, the manufacturer significantly reduced prices of the Model S and Model X by $13,500-$18,500 (15.3-18.8 percent), depending on the version.

Additionally, the entry-level Model X, which starts at an MSRP of $79,990 has become qualified for the $7,500 federal tax credit.

This is probably the main reason why the estimated delivery time for a new Model S (all versions) increased to October-

November, while in the case of the Model X (all versions) it is November-December. Previously, in both cases, customers had to wait just several weeks (September-October).

Tesla already proved earlier this year that prices matter a lot and, through deep price cuts, managed to not only maintain but even increase its sales volume in the US and globally.
