A glitch on the website of a futuristic car manufacturer led a man to unintentionally order 28 Tesla vehicles online.

The German man realized his churning error after receiving an invoice from Tesla totaling nearly 2.3 million Australian dollars.

The story was revealed on Reddit on Monday, with the man’s son explaining how his father “accidentally” bought more than two dozen luxury electric cars.

Using Reddit’s nickname “ Balloon Man, ” he explained how his father almost ended up with 27 more Tesla Model 3 cars than he wanted.

Seeking to replace the aging Ford Kuga family, the father decided to take advantage of the German government’s reimbursement incentive to switch to an electric vehicle.

So he opted for a Tesla.

The Model 3 is the most affordable car in the manufacturer’s range.

Tesla is also much more accustomed to customers who order their expensive purchases online, which only the recent coronavirus epidemic has convinced other car manufacturers and dealers.

“It was an obvious decision – and it was the aftermath of events,” writes Canadian auto news site. Driving.ca.

Balloon Man’s father added the Autopilot option to his online shopping cart, then clicked “confirm” to send the order to Tesla.

Nothing happened.

So he clicked on confirm again.

And even.

And again – “for about two hours,” according to her son.

Finally, the website responded, thanking the customer – and informing them that their 28 Tesla Model 3 cars would soon be on their way.

Tesla is known to be prickly for refunds on one of its products.

Thus, even the non-refundable deposit of AUD164 for each of the unwanted cars would have cost the unhappy father more than $ 4,400.

However, in this case, Tesla responded with compassion to the man’s frantic phone call.

It refunded the non-refundable deposits for 27 of the cars and continued processing the order for a single model 8585 AUD.
