Pulled from another thread. Can someone confirm these numbers are true or provide more color?
"Production switching to 70% Europe 30% US in August according to Tesla sales rep"
"I was in store yesterday and overheard sales rep tell customer that waiting time in US may go from 4 to 8 weeks now to 4 to 6 months in next few months. When I asked why she said that in August they are going to start producing 70% of the cars for Europe in August."
"I was skeptical as well so I quizzed the sales rep a little and she said that they had all just received an email instructing them to notify U.S customer to expect longer delays. She said that they are going to focus on European countries where steering wheel is on left side first. I guess 4 month delays are feasible if they cut production for US customers down to 30%. I was actually a little concerned that demand was low enough in U.S. that they could cut production for us that much."
