Model 3 is not the only car that has seen a delayed delivery window. Tesla has pushed back the delivery window for the Model Y rear-wheel drive as well. The delivery window for this EV has been pushed back to February-March from January-March. Interestingly, this comes after Tesla announced a 17 per cent price cut for the Model Y crossover. However, the expected delivery of the Model Y Long Range and Performance variants remain unchanged. These variants are slated to be delivered between January and March this year, shows Tesla website.
