Tesla had put deliveries on hold on the new variants of the Model S and buyers were given various reasons why they could not take deliveries. However now, the same buyers are able to take their cars.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that the company will not offer the regular steering wheel option on the new Model S.
Tesla has resumed deliveries of the Model S after a week-long hold, but the automaker has never told customers the reason behind buying the new electric vehicle. Last week, several Tesla Model S buyers reported that their vehicles drove from the Fremont factory to their local distribution center, but their local sales consultants were telling them they could not deliver new electric cars.
As per the Electrek report, many of them said that there was a delivery hold on the new variants of the Model S and buyers were given various reasons as to why they could not take the delivery. Now, the same buyers who reported the suspension of delivery are able to pick up their cars. However, Tesla has not given the reason behind the hold. A source familiar with the matter confirmed to Electrek that there was no official container hold on the Model S. Which means it wasn’t waiting for a missing part or software update.
Recently, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the company will not offer the regular steering wheel option on the new Model S and Model X vehicles. Musk stressed that the yoke is well worth offering for improved visibility of the steering wheel instrument cluster and its driving visualization.
Tesla demands reduction in import duty in India
US electric car maker Tesla has demanded a reduction in import duty on electric vehicles in India. A senior government official said this on Friday. Currently, the customs duty on a car imported as a Completely Manufactured Unit (CSU) ranges from 60 per cent to 100 per cent. This is dependent on engine size and cost, insurance and freight value of less than or more than $40,000.
Recently, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari had said that Tesla has a golden opportunity to set up its manufacturing unit in India, as the emphasis is on e-vehicles in the country. He had said that Tesla is already procuring various vehicle parts from Indian automakers and setting up a base here would be economically viable for them.
