You’ve placed your order for a new Model Y or Model 3? Or maybe you have a huge chunk of cash lying around and you have ordered a Plaid Model S! Congrats.
Now, you might be wondering how to track your Tesla delivery? Or simply figure out your Tesla order status.
Tracking Your Tesla Delivery
Everything centers around your Tesla Account. That is the email address and password you used to order your new Tesla vehicle.
First, I recommend you login into your Tesla Account regularly as you may need to update something or help push the Tesla order along. It depends on your order type, but it could be such things as:
- Your Contact Details
- Preferred Delivery Location
- Payment method
- Registration Documents and address
- Your Driver’s License
Be aware, home delivery is often an option.
Tesla VIN Assignment
As your vehicle gets closer to production, they will assign your Tesla order a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). This means they have decided more or less where/when it will be produced in the future.
Your Tesla Account will be updated with the VIN once this stage has been reached.
Tip: Use our VIN Decoder to understand your Tesla VIN
Your Tesla Delivery Date
The last step in the process of buying a Tesla is getting the delivery date. This will be sent to you via SMS, email and also show up in your Tesla Account.
If your vehicle is being shipped from overseas, this will obviously be a long time after VIN assignment and actual vehicle production. Depending on where it is being shipped, this could take many many weeks.
