In 2016 Tesla announced the Tesla Model 3 and that it would be available to more countries than any other Tesla vehicle before, including South Africa.
Much hype was made of the addition of South Africa speculating that Tesla would be opening a manufacturing facility in the Western Cape. However nothing has changed and it appears that Tesla’s only interest in South Africa is regarding solar and the power wall.
It has recently come to light that Tesla will only begin production of the Right Hand vehicle in 2019 accourding to their website. South Africa’s who pre ordered their Tesla Model 3 early are only likely to receive their vehicles in 2019 possibly 2020.
What are your thoughts? Did you pre order a Model 3?
