Elon Musk won't give family members early access or discounts for a Tesla — including his own mother (TSLA)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk doesn't give special treatment to family members.

Maye Musk, the latest CoverGirl model and mother of Elon, told the New York Times that she's still waiting for the Model 3.

"I haven't gotten the 3 yet. I’m at around 300,000," she told the NYT. "Even though I have good connections, I can’t jump the line."

The Model 3 is Tesla's first mass-market sedan and the wait for the vehicle stretches at least a year-and-a-half for those who order today. 

Take a look at Elon Musk's model mother:

Tesla plans to start producing 20,000 Model 3 cars per month in December, so Maye Musk is likely looking at a 2018 delivery time, though she may get it earlier if she ordered a Premium trim.

Maye Musk isn't the only relative to get denied special treatment. Lyndon Rive, the former CEO of SolarCity and Musk's cousin, once asked Elon Musk for a "family member discount" for a Model S.

"I asked, 'Elon, hey can I have a family discount' and his answer is, 'Yeah absolutely. Go to TeslaMotor.com, buy the car online, and the price you see there is the family discount,'" Rive told Business Insider. "Everyone gets a family discount."

Rive said he and his wife still own a Model S and Model X.

"I give Elon credit beyond the fact of being the best entrepreneur in the world — he treats everyone the same. Everyone. There’s no nepotism at all," Rive said.
