Tesla has started to send an ultimatum to buyers who keep delaying their deliveries as part of a new policy change in the evolving market.
Sources familiar with the matter told Electrek that Tesla has decided to send an ultimatum to buyers who have been delaying their deliveries for long periods of time.
Tesla is asking them to take delivery within a certain period of time, or the company will cancel the order.
This applies to people who have been delaying deliveries for six months or more.
A source familiar with the matter told Electrek that it applies to a number of orders in the lows thousands in the US.
So we are talking about a relatively significant number of people that Tesla is forcing to make a decision.
This policy change to put more pressure on people delaying orders comes amid a shift in the EV market in the US.
In many cases, buyers can simply delay orders because they can’t afford the vehicles and can’t get approved for a loan.
