I decided just 6 days ago to order a Model 3, thinking it would be a good Christmas present for my wife and me. Imagine my surprise when I got a call 24 hours later saying delivery will the the 27th of this month! I thought there was this huge backlog at the factory I'm now rushing to find an electrician that can get a charging port installed before the 27th. Anyone else getting this quick turnaround?

What was your configuration?

It's all about your configuration as cars are made in batches. You can get very lucky (as you did) or potentially very unlucky.

Yes, for Model 3 RWD, those dates have been seen by many.

Don't freak out about getting a plug installed. You can always use 120V if you don't need to charge much, there's a number of Tesla Destination Chargers, and a bunch of J-1772 chargers around town. Definitely not as convenient as charging at home, but no need to rush and pay too much, get lower quality, or possibly ruin the surprise.

Congrats

Check to see if your local power company does rebates on charger installation. Our local power company gave us a $500 rebate and a lower charge rate between 8pm and 8am M-F, and weekends. The charger rebate allowed us to purchase the Tesla charger and we paid for the new circuit and labor.
