Another thing to consider is that M3 ordering became open to anyone in 2019 vs. only those with a deposit in 2018, you would think this should have caused an inrush of orders from those who wanted the car but didn't want to make a deposit yet the sales were weaker than the preceding 2018 period.

Ordering to all customers in the US and Canada began in Q3 of ‘18. Tesla’s expiration of the $7500 tax credit ended December 31st 2018. Naturally there was a huge Q4 push.
2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range (100% charge @ 20k miles shows 1.3% degradation)

2013 Nissan Leaf S + QC sold with warranty pack replacement (~35% degradation @ ~40k miles)

2015 Kia Soul EV+ Lease returned 10/14/17 45,000 miles w/ 13.8% degradation.

Ok, then the dynamics makes more sense. I for some reason thought that ordering for all opened up at the same time when they announced the base model (short-lived) availability earlier this year, but apparently it didn't help to reach 2018 numbers.
