We all know that there are problems in sourcing electronic components to make a product due to chip shortage, so save a few years to buy Tesla and finally imagine delivery without all the USB ports. It sounds unbelievable, but it’s true. According to the Electrek report, A hole appeared in the new Tesla “Model 3” and “Model Y” where the USB-C ports should be. Elon Musk’s company has blamed the chip shortage for responding to a number of social media complaints it has received in recent days.

An owner Tesla Model Y. Wrote Reddit: “I got a call from Tesla about my model YLR. I am ready for delivery tomorrow and no USB ports have been installed in the car due to shortage. In addition, The user said that there is no port on the front and center console Although the respective ports and glove box have USB A in the back seat.
For its translation into Spanish, you can read the following:
“USB ports are missing
I got a call from Tesla about my Model Y LR. I am ready for delivery tomorrow and no USB ports have been installed in the car due to shortage. They said I could still get delivery, but they only knew it today. Should I worry that other things may be missing or incomplete? They told me they were planning a service to install the ports when they were available, but they did not know when they would be.
I’m looking for the certainty that the car is really ready to go, and I wonder if anyone else has gotten such an “incomplete” car.
Edited: Everyone interested is posting an update here.
I finished the delivery. Not only USB-C on the front and center console. They are in the back seat, and the USB-A in the glove box is nice. The wireless charging pad is not working yet. They said, ”the user wrote on Reddit.
Says Electrek Customers were informed in advance and decided to make delivery despite some solutions promised to solve this problem, The date for installing the USB ports, the commitment or something in writing to reflect certain types of debt.
Tesla’s response to the situation
According to Electrek, the Tesla service has warned affected owners They can call to make an appointment as soon as the parts are available, Although the date is estimated to be December.
On the other hand, on Reddit you can read the conversation between the owner of a Model Y and Tesla support, in which the company claims that upgrading and installing USB ports is free.
The chip crisis and supply chain issues can be understood as a difficult hurdle for all manufacturers. However, in this case, it’s a pity that users have paid thousands of euros for a new car, and in the end it’s all the same. One hundred percent unfinished.
