Less than one month ago we reported that European delivery estimates for the Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) and Long Range variants in stock configurations had been extended to November 2022.
Now customers placing an order for either vehicle today will have to wait nearly a full year as Tesla’s production allocation from Giga Shanghai to Europe has sold out for 2022.
According to the Design Studio in Germany, France, the United Kingdom and several other European countries, delivery estimates have jumped to February 2023.
Model 3 RWD and LR AWD in white with black interior and 18" wheels just jumped to February 2023 in Germany. Previously was November 2022.

These wait times are now even longer than those facing customers in North America.
The Canadian and U.S. Design Studios say orders for the same vehicles will arrive in August 2022 (RWD) and May 2022 (LR AWD).
Of course there are ways to shorten those wait times by several months, but you will have to pay more for that privilege by selecting at least one optional upgrade like wheels, paint, or a white interior.
