Tesla Model Y reservation holders in Germany who are unable to receive orders for their vehicles by the end of this year will still receive incentives from the German government to purchase electric cars.
The German government’s incentives for electric vehicles are expected to be reduced next year.
This is certainly unpleasant news for some Tesla customers, as demand for the Model 3 and Model Y has resulted in several orders that are likely to ship in 2023.
In fact, if the vehicle is ordered today, some customers are likely to receive their order next year.
The company said that it will cover the difference between the current incentives and the adjusted incentives next year.
However, the policy will be applied to vehicles whose orders are placed until December 31, 2022.
“Given the high demand for deliveries this year and if your Model 3 or Model Y deliveries are hampered this year, we will provide a bonus to cover the incentive gap,” Tesla said.
Meanwhile, Tesla’s operations in Germany have been quite impressive lately. Recently, the company launched two new premium colors for the Model Y which were produced at the Berlin Gigafactory.
Dubbed Quicksilver and Midnight Cherry Red, the two new premium colors effectively replace Midnight Silver Metallic and Red Multi-Coat, both of which are more affordable.
Meanwhile, customers who want to place an order for the Y model in Midnight Cherry Red will have to wait until July 2023 given the high demand for this color.
