Just a reminder from our August email….
To start off, we’ll be inviting preorder holders in the following regions beginning this month:
- Normal, IL
- New York, NY
- San Francisco, CA
- Los Angeles, CA
Invitations are based on where you live and your proximity to our event sites. We’ll be expanding to more areas in the future.
We’re excited for this next moment of our journey and are grateful to have you along for the ride.

Hum…maybe I should sign all my neighbors up?Another reminder, it's a good idea to sign up on the website for the demo drives and events, no matter where you live. If they. get enough interest in a given area, they will be more likely to schedule an event there. Click on the yellow banner at the top of the website.
No, not even closePretty curious when they're going to start doing the 1-on-1 visits they said they'd do.
And If they're doing this once a month, then they either don't plan on letting people test drive before ordering, or they don't plan on delivering to anywhere other than Normal, NYC, and (i'm guessing) SF in 2021.
Seems like a ban-aid to to address not having either enough vehicles or enough staff to hold events concurrently. Hopefully that's addressed soon and they start having permanent test drive opportunities in these locations (assuming you can no longer go to Normal and test drive). This feels like what Ford did with the lightning this summer.
Did all of the pre-order holders in the Illinois area get an opportunity to test drive?
I would like to hear about steering feel on-road. That has not been discussed anywhere.Feb. 2020 Preorder # 23,XXX, I'm in Ithaca right now. Doubt I'll get an invite. On the plus side it hasn't started snowing yet it's actually 73 and pleasant today.
Happy more will get to test drive congrats to those that do. Remember to check on the consumption/ efficiency displays and report back for what options are available.
I know I saw one of the reviewers talking about it from the Colorado press event. I watched them all back to back, and it's all muddled together, so I couldn't tell you which one.I would like to hear about steering feel on-road. That has not been discussed anywhere.
