    My current vehicle has heated seats and rarely use them. However, I could wait the 4-months. At this point would prefer it in the Spring.

(plus my wife hates heated seats since heat is bad for certain types of back problems.. she'd want a seat ice-r)
    don't need the seat heater in hawaii. I wonder when they will offer that seat icer.

    If waiting 4 months to get the heated 12 way adjustable textile seats means you would have pay the new higher price then those become VERY EXPENSIVE SEATS! Are you sure you're willing to pay an extra $2500?

    I'm back!

    Posted on the Tesla Bulletin Board today:

    When will 40 kWh cars, 60 kWh cars, Standard Suspension and new 2013 Red begin production? | Forums | Tesla Motors

    WHEN WILL 40 KWH CARS, 60 KWH CARS, STANDARD SUSPENSION AND NEW 2013 RED BEGIN PRODUCTION?
    nkinkaid@teslam... | DECEMBER 3, 2012

    60 kWh cars will begin production in January 2013. Deliveries will begin in January/early February.

    40 kWh cars will begin production in March 2013. Deliveries will begin in March/early April.

    Our original plan was to deliver 5,000 Model S in 2012. In our November letter to shareholders, we reduced our 2012 plan to between 2,500 and 3,000 while reaffirming 20,000 deliveries in 2013. This basically "shifted" our production ramp back about two months for all options not available at start of production. Our original plan was to begin production of 60 kWh cars in November, 40 kWh cars and Standard (Coil) Suspension in January, and new Red exterior paint in March. Our current production ramp takes this original plan and shifts each item back approximately two months except for the new Red.

    Below is the current Production Sequencing Timeline for 2013:

    • 60 kWh Model S with Active Air Suspension will phase into production in January 2013
    • 40 kWh Model S will phase into production in March 2013
    • 40, 60 and 85 kWh cars with Standard Suspension will begin production in March 2013
    • 2013 Red multi-coat paint will begin production in March 2013 (no change from original plan)


    Once we begin producing Model S with each option, your sequence number and order date will determine your placement in the build schedule. We will be producing about 400 cars per week as each option phases into production, so cars will flow fairly quickly once production of a particular option begins.

    We will continue to provide regular updates regarding these options as each gets closer to phasing into production. We have not done a great job at all in the past regarding communication on these items. I fully acknowledge our shortfall in this area. We now have a much better understanding of what it will take to bring each of these options into production and will do a much better job of communicating about them going forward. Rest assured we will move as quickly as possible on each item.

    We will be announcing 60 kWh 5-cycle EPA range certification soon. This puts us on track for a January start of 60 kWh Model S production.

    No way! Did not know there was a price hit for the heated seats. Will gladly take delivery in January as gg's post indicates the 60 kWh battery should be available.

    GG,

    I had seen that on the Tesla Official site as well. I also got an e-mail stating the same thing.

    B5,

    Looks like your theory was right on with 60 kWh starting in 2013! I suppose that means 2013 will be an exciting year for me.

    Really it's only $1000 because before you had to have the $1500 leather seat option to get heated 12-ways.

    Absolutely, David. Our P#s are very close, so arriving about the same time. My best guess, if they start production right at January 1 is that there is a small chance to get it delivered in January proper.

    More generally:
    One question, if I were to bother GeorgeB would be whether Tesla will, in January, build a mix of continuing 85s and new 60s, or will they produce 60s to roughly get up to the same P#s as the 85s... I won't freak out either way, but it will make a few weeks difference. Please understand: I just want my car. <sigh>

    I am wondering the same question, but I am on the 85kWh side of the equation, no offence but I was hoping they don't start on the 60s until the "end" of January. that way they may have time to start on my car before switching gears. I guess there is no single answer that will make everybody happy. Please understand: I just want my car. <sigh>

    I have almost the same exact config as you.
