They aren't going to be the only automaker to see these kinds of delays due to battery acquisition. With the steep milestones that are being set across the industry, availability is going to get really tight.

Most new premium EV's can only be ordered on line, so a dealer isn't really going to have any advantages to offer. We've seen just how badly delays can affect interest in Tesla's. I think it was estimated that 1 in 5 people cancelled their order on the Model 3.

In fact there is probably a good chance that a lot of automakers are going to be moving away from the conventional dealer model. One of the main turn offs when buying a new vehicle is struggling through all the negotiations involved in trying to get a fair incentive/deal.

There are already some online apps/ websites that are trying to redesign the car buying process. Not only do they provide dealer costs, but they also notify you of any available rebates and incentives and the car is delivered to your door for free. Have a look at Nowcar, Unhaggle or Carsdirect.

Unfortunately anyone on the fence with higher end products like this that need to see a vehicle in person will be limited to seeing what someone else ordered. Of course you won't get seat time on the road but, reality is people want these more than they care to know the details. Its like why many rush to buy new Apple iPhone's without knowing the details, they just love what apple produces.
