The person known as 'Ballon-Man' at online discussion forum Reddit wrote about how he and his father accidentally placed an order for multiple Model 3s instead of just one.
The family placed an order for a new Model 3 equipped with autopilot, but something did not go right with the Tesla website.
After clicking 'submit,' the website responded that the order could not be placed because of a payment issue even though they filled in payment details correctly.
The user's father clicked "confirm" once again only to have the same result. This went on for about 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 summed up to 2,800 euros.
However, after a phone call, Tesla understood the situation and cancelled the entire order without charge and the customer was instructed to simply place a new order.
