Berlin: After a crash on the company website, a German accidentally bought 28 Tesla Model 3 vehicles online amounting to 1.4 million Euros.
At the online discussion forum Reddit, the person known as ‘Ballon-Man’ wrote about how he and his father accidentally placed an order for 27 Model 3s rather than just one.
The family placed an order for a new Autopilot-equipped Model 3 but with the Tesla website, something did not go right.
Upon pressing ‘send,’ the website replied that the order could not be placed due to a payment problem even though they correctly filled in payment details.
The user ‘s father once again clicked on “Confirm” just to get the same result. This continued for approximately two hours.
Eventually the website responded and ‘confirmed’ the order-all 28 of them, taking the total billing amount to 1.4 million Euros and given that each vehicle has a non-refundable charge of 100 Euros, that amount sums up to 2.800 Euros.
Nevertheless, Tesla realized the situation after a phone call, and canceled the entire order without penalty, and was told to simply put a new order.
