Tesla recently delivered some Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in the USA that lacked USB ports. This happened often without any prior warning to owners according to an Electrek reported from last Friday. Tesla blamed the chip shortage for the missing parts.
Most of the affected cars appear to be missing the USB-C port along the back wall of the center console, but at least one car claims to have a missing USB port in the back seat. Wireless charging also appears to be inactive for new owners who lack a center console USB port, the report said.
Tesla service has told some owners that they can call to schedule a service appointment for when parts are available. According to the Electrec report this should be around December, according to the report.
