Tesla’s ‘My Tesla’ reservation page for the Model 3 has been quite bare so far. It shows a non-sequential reservation number for your Model 3 and it reminds you of when you reserved it because you’ll be invited to configure the car based on the date of your reservation.
Today, Tesla updated the page to include a ‘My Documents’ section which was already present on the Model S and X pages of ‘My Tesla’ in order to enable the uploading of documents necessary to change a reservation into an order.
While it’s no indication that you will be able to change your reservation into an order anytime soon, it is undoubtedly a step closer to it.
Additionally, the language on my own page changed from “Deliveries will begin in late 2017” to “Production is planned to begin in 2017”, which is odd since we checked with a few other reservation holders and the former is still present..
It may be because my address is listed outside of the US (Canada). Let us know what is listed in your ‘My Tesla’ page for your Model 3 reservation in the comment section below.
As for the new ‘My Documents’ section for the Model 3, here’s what it looks like for a Model S:
Only the ‘All Documents’ and ‘Uploads’ subsections are visible on the Model 3 page, but the others are hidden in the source code of the webpage and you can’t actually upload a document.
We are not sure what to make of this exactly. It certainly looks like Tesla is preparing to receive documents from Model 3 reservations holders, but that’s only expected for when they will allow them to place an order. The timing with the upcoming event on Monday is certainly interesting, but Tesla is not expected to allow orders until after the “part 2” of the Model 3 unveiling, which is expected “closer to production”.
Also, the last time the ‘My Tesla’ page for Model 3 reservations was updated was to add a hidden payment option to buy ‘Supercharger credits’ in kWh blocks, but the company quickly reverted the change after we reported on it.
