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 249 (March 23, 2011)
P 3,446 (March 25, 2011)
R 218 (January 2011)

S 69 (March 24, 2011)
P 143 (March 9, 2011)

S 55 (January 18, 2011)*
P 448 (March 28, 2011)

Hong Kong
P 1 (March 23, 2011)

P 17 (January 21, 2011)

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.

@LGB, very good post. I think you should start a H.K. thread. I wonder how big the H.K. market is for Model S.


EU P3077 21 March (Norway)

Any new reports this weekend?


I am picking up my car at the service center tomorrow! I finalized the paperwork on 2/26/13. Given a delivery window of 3/22/13-4/5/13, so right in the middle of the delivery window.

P85 - metallic blue/gray interior/tech pkg/rear seats/parcel shelf

ordered 3/1/13. No sequence number. RN doesn't seem to mean anyhting.

EU P3199 (Netherlands). Reserved on March 28.

It looks like overseas folks still have sequence numbers. New folks in the US are just getting the RN that is not sequential - and that number should be kept private, not posted on the forum.

Assuming the sequence numbers still makes sense, that means just above 1,000 MS in EU during Q1.

That would be consistent with trends. I'd expect triple or quadruple that in Q3. Q2 ?? Maybe 1,500 - 2,000.

@ Brian H

It only takes cars on the road and it will all accelerate from there. The most effective marketing there is. But still none in Europe so we'll have to see after June/July... quadrupling should not be too difficult.

Tesla sales in EU will be on the rise, car is now in showroom available for test-drive.

And -as GeirT mentioned- after first deliveries numbers will increase more.



Reservations are no more, at least in the USA. They only take orders now. Tesla product specialists were told not to use that word anymore.

@ DonS

So when somebody decides to buy a Tesla Model S, he/she must decide immediately about the colour and options?

Res number 31xxx, delivery window 4/19 a 5/3.
Grey, 60, std suspension, tech pkg

DonS, that's interesting, and seems to be my experience.

I placed my order Friday (4/5), and received a confirmation number instead...

Order Confirmation number: RN423726

The email states it will be released to manufacturing on 4/18, so just about two weeks after the order date.


# 3307 reported confirmed for EU (Norway) on April 8th.

I was told you have (about?) two weeks from when you place your order to pick colors and all the details. Orders get into the production queue as soon as all the choices are done.

Also, I was told there is no more deposit up front. All the money is due when the car is done. I guess that is why it is not called a reservation anymore.

EU P3349 (Norway) reported today.

I cannot believe that the demand for the Tesla Model S in the US has stopped to grow further. I don't think that can be true. I don't think that the curve above tells the true story.

Do not feed trolls. I've flagged these posts as inappropriate. Need two more flags to remove them from the site. These are lies by the shorts that are getting desperate.

@ Benz

Totally agree! If it was like this, why don't MS flood the EU market with cars right away to benefit from the demand momentum? This is simply not credible.

Flag these posts inappropriate by hovering the mouse over the lower area of the post.

They need 57 orders a day for 400 car per week run rate. Based on the TMC thread, European reservations alone have been around 17 a day for the last month or so. Since they don't publish sequence numbers for the US anymore, we really can't make any guesses about the remaining 40 that would be needed. They were running 500 per week in the factory for some time, probably to clear the backlog as much as possible. That said, all of the "40's" are still waiting, red is just entering production, and an unknown percentage of people with standard suspension are still waiting as well.

Is this the church of Tesla?

Why do people around here attack any inconvenient opinion with their newfound flagging power instead of asking the hard questions?

How is that one can order today and have the car delivered in two months if Tesla has orders for the full year as Elon says?

@Hodne / JAGN

Wow, 42 European orders in one day!?

A bit of a presumptuous post, Nicu.Michalache.

I would like to suggest calling Tesla Ordering Hotline and trying to verify whether claim that $500 deposit at the time of ordering was eliminated.

I did just that - before posting. The claim is not accurate.
