An anxious customer waiting for their right hand drive Tesla Model 3 asked Elon on Twitter, when we can expect to see a Model 3 with the steering wheel on the correct side of the car. Unfortunately Elon said that “probably mid next year before we are able to make RHD” and suggested getting a used Model S instead. Bummer. Here’s the tweet in full:
Probably mid next year before we are able to make RHD. Wish it could be sooner. Maybe try a Model S, used or new in the meantime? Used S is better than a new 3 imo, unless you want a smaller car.
