Putting deposit on Tesla 3
« on: November 27, 2015, 01:58:13 AM »
So I've heard that Tesla will start taking deposits, somewhere around $5000 beginning in March of 2016.  Has anyone here done this with a Model X or Model S and can explain how it works?  Do you lose the deposit if you don't follow through with buying the car?  Are you allowed to resell a Tesla just like any other car or are there constraints or issues because of the battery tech or warranty?  Do they offer financing or do you need to get that independently?

I'm sure by new everyone knows what the deposit amount is. I plan to put the $1000 deposit down either on the 31st at a store or online later that day depending on how crazy busy the store is. Who else plan to put a deposit down the first day?
