Model S Reservation Tally

This thread is intended to track Model S reservations.

If your reservation number is greater than the reservation number listed below, please post the 1) reservation number 2) region and 3) type: Signature or General Production.

Here is an updated collection of the numbers posted by members on various threads (i.e., these numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt):

S = Signature Series (Model S)
P = General Production (Model S)
R = Roadster Owner/Friends and Family

* = On March 1, 2011, a Tesla member posted, "Got the following info from Tesla some days ago: In Europe they have reduced the Signature down to 500 and approximately 70 have been reserved." While 55 is a confirmed/posted reservation number from this forum, the 70 has yet to be verified by the actual European reservation holder.

@David M. -
I'm not exactly sure how to interpret the 5%, but I do know the 5% is a good thing. It's unclear how many actually requested their deposits back vs. how many upgraded. My father and I both upgraded in the 2nd quarter from general production to Signature Series. So, of the 279 overage, at least 2 were upgrades and not drop outs.

I would like to know what Tesla's reservation expectations are/were for year end.

One would think reservations would slow down given that 2012 production is almost sold out. However, there were 2,000+ people willing to wait 2+ years with far greater uncertainty of the Model S than there is now.

P 4,491 (August 2, 2011)

"Your Reservation Sequence number is 4,491 of the General Production reservation list."

I placed my reservation in Menlo Park on 8/1/2011, and was given reservation number 4,491 the next day. It will replace a 2011 MB E350 Bluetec Diesel that goes off-lease in Dec. 2012.

I can't wait to take my 16 y/o son to see what Tesla has done to the old NUMMI factory as we live in Fremont, and, of course, to test drive a Model S. Meanwhile, I'll be driving the roadster this Sat. to experience what it's like to drive an electric vehicle.

Besides doing my part to help end U.S. dependence on OPEC oil (by using a solar installation on my roof), I figure I'll save time wasted at the fueling station.

P.S. to MichicanModels: Why are you keeping track of "S" reservation counts? Are you a TSLA investor using this as one of your metrics to try to value the company?

@engle -

If you have yet to drive the Roadster, you're in for a treat.

I am a TSLA investor. I am also Signature Reservation Hold 249. I'm keeping a tally for several reasons. Namely, I (and others) are interested in potential demand. If nothing else, it helps pass the time until "Mid-2012." :-)

@engle, There will only be 1,000 Signature vehicles produced. Some folks (like me) have already decided on the 300mi battery, but do not intend to upgrade to (S) until pricing is released, or until the reservation count for (S) comes very close to 1,000. It also let's me keep my $40K deposit a little longer.

I really appreciate Michiganmodels for keeping the tally. I tell others all the time, how strong the demand is for the Model S.

Interesting, just glanced at the % of total reservations which are S in each category. Outside the US the % is much higher.

Still no update? =(

No new reservation holders have posted in a week.

Correct.

I am hoping for a Signature update. Like David M. I am holding out for now (store rep estimated 90K price). I would like a price comparison of the production model with the options I want vs. the price of the Signature which is fully loaded. If it is large I will wait the extra 6 months. Rep also estimated that there were about 100 signature spots left.
We will see...

With the drop in the market, I expect very few new reservations and larger than desired cancelations next year.
I will also be thinking harder about the price differential than previously planned for signature versus standard series.
They originally had 1000 signature spots for USA. It is likely they will close the signature reservations three to six months prior to production initiation. There is no chance now of all 1000 being sold without major publicity and drivable high quality models. I think they would call them production intent models.

@brantharradine@- is that before or after the $7,500 rebate?

Good question. If I remember correctly we were discussing prices before any tax rebates.

@michiganmodels
I am P972. Northern Cal. I reserved about 2 years ago and my number hasn't change since then. Starting where I did I would not expect it to have changed too much with people switching to the S model, but would have expected some movement. So they must not have reassigned US numbers yet, correct? Getting more pumped each day to get my Tesla.

@JohnD - Correct. Tesla has not reassigned/reordered US numbers (Tesla reordered Canada and Europe a few months ago). I believe there have been relatively few US drop outs as our Tally here was 5% higher than the official number conveyed in the conference call last week.

U.S. numbers have not been reassigned. According to Tesla, all of the 1,000 (S) customers will now be ahead of you (and I). But presumably some of the (P) customers with numbers lower than yours may have upgraded to (S). Bottom line - your additional wait (due to S deliveries) may only be 5 or 6 weeks. Insignificant, considering that you have already been waiting for 2 years. I've only been waiting 10 months, and it seems like it's been forever.

I was also told that the 300 mile battery models are being produced 1st. So regardless of your P#, if you are ordering a 300mile battery, you may get your Model S sooner than someone with a lower P# requesting a lower range battery option.

Yea. Elon just said on the quarterly conference call last week that they would do the Signature first, then the 300mi non-sig, then 240mi, then 160mi. But, he did say they would get to the 160mi cars by the end of 2012...so everyone that is currently reserved should still get in before 2013.

I think it has more to do with the order in which they are going to ramp up the production lines rather than just arbitrarily picking which cars they want to make first. Though I'm sure they are happy to do the highest margin models early on while they aren't pushing out very many cars each day.

I'm sure they are also happy to get those models with a) the least range anxiety and b) the greatest advantage over the competition to the press (and blogging owners etc.) early on.

MT,

only the ~4500 reservation holders in US can expect to get their Model S delivered before end of 2012, regardless of battery size.

Tesla announced dates for delivery of Model S to start by end 2012 for European left hand drive version (affects currently ~500 reservations). Customers in UK, Asia, Australia (right hand drive), and Canada have to wait even longer, right now counting another 300 reservation holders.

On the plus side, for us customers abroad the ordered battery size should have little or no impact on delivery date since all sizes of battery are already in production.

@VolkerP,
Right, I was only referring to US reservation holders. I suppose it wasn't fair to assume we are all U.S. residents here as there is only a U.S. and German site right now. My apologies.

Just got my confirmation: Canada Production #179.
Can't believe I have to wait 18 months, feeling like a kid waiting for Christimas to happen

On 8/10/11 I received my reservation number. It is:

• US general production (P)
• Reservation #4,562

My non-scientific scan of a few prior posts shows me that Engle posted the previous US update. On 8/2/11 his number was 4491. Coincidently, he also purchased at the Menlo Park store. That makes 71 reservations for general production in a week. The sales rate seems to be increasing.

After reserving the car my son and I took ride up to Tesla world HQ. Our interest gained us a tour of the facility. Very impressive!

mm, just passed the 6K mark, and I was wondering if you could give us a timeline for how long each 1,000 reservations (Total) took. Might give a robust indicator of reservation rate trends.

Right now, the pace is about 400 reservations per month. I would imagine the pace would pick up to 450/month by November. By next Spring, maybe 600/month. But that all depends on whether Tesla does any advertising in 2012.

S 276 USA HOUSTON, TEXAS (BIG OIL COUNTRY)

I'm guessing that in Texas even letters are bigger?
