It is time ... to meet Model 3.
Well this is certainly an exciting and frustrating time for Model 3. Yes, Model 3 delivery windows have gotten pushed back, but at least there's some good news. Model 3s are starting to roll into the triangle from the initial owner orders and on the 17th and 18th you will have the opportunity to check one out!
Two meetups are planned, Saturday at Crossroads and Sunday at Brier Creek. Feel free to come to either or both.
Quick FAQ about the meetup:
Will I be able to ride in a 3?
Test rides are not planned for the meetup. If an individual owner chooses to let someone ride in their car, they of course may, but no rides are planned.
Will I be able to get in a 3?
Yes! You will be able to sit in a Model 3 and check out the entire car. One car will be open for you to sit in and check out. There may be multiple Model 3s at the meetup and each owner decides the level of interaction they want with their car. Cars are only for viewing unless told otherwise by the owner.
Can I bring an item like a car seat or stroller to see how it fits in the 3?
Yes, you may bring items to see how they fit in the back seat or front/rear trunk. Items would need to be clean (I'm looking at you, car seat with the peanut butter on it!). One car will be open for you to do this. Again, cars are only for viewing unless told otherwise by the owner.
I have a dog and wanted to see if ... NOOOOOOOO!
Please join us for a meetup at RTP Headquarters for a National Drive Electric Week event. Hosted by Plug-in NC/Advanced Energy, the event will include many different EV models and is open to the public. There will be a number of exhibitors and vendors at the event as well. As always, any public interaction with your vehicle is completely up to you. There is no expectation to allow people access in your vehicle at this event, and it will be treated the same as any public Triangle Tesla meetup.
From the event page:
Join Plug-in NC and Advanced Energy to celebrate National Drive Electric Week in the Triangle!
