Tesla is once again letting owners offer a referral discount, this time it’s free Supercharging for life with the purchase of a Model X or S. Enjoy and pass along to friends interested in a Model S or Model X! Good until January 31st, 2018.
Tesla’s $1,000 referral discount on a Model S ends December 31st. If you’re thinking of getting one, please enjoy the discount and LOVE the car!
It looks like Tesla’s efforts to bring car purchasing into the 21st century in Texas have stalled. What a shame, protectionism of the antiquated Manufacturer/Dealer/Consumer approach prevails. What if you HAD to buy your iMac at a Best Buy instead of an Apple store? Or couldn’t buy anything direct from, you know, the company that MADE it? Because, it’s always better to have a middleman, who knows less about the product than the people who made it and the people buying it, step in, clog the works, and add extra cost to the process, right?
You look really old-school here Texas. Stop protecting the Brontosauruses – they had their time and purpose, but life moves on. All we ask is that Tesla be allowed to compete with them. If their model adds value, consumers will choose it. If their model just adds cost, well, you get the picture…
If you do anything, please watch the first 20 seconds of this video and listen…
OK, when fanboys like me rave and drool over the Model S, you are welcome to ignore us. But when Consumer Reports hints in their June online issue that they are going to reveal in the July issue that the Tesla Model S is “The Best Vehicle We’ve Ever Tested”, well, listen. They have tested THOUSANDS of cars in their 75 years, now doing 8o/year. Look at the picture, it doesn’t say ‘Best Electric Car…’. or ‘Best Vehicle this Year…’, ‘Best Vehicle that’s Named after a Scientist…’ it says ‘Ever’. Now will you go test drive one? Please?
We recently visited the Tesla store in Denver. In addition to picking up coffee tumblers, drink bottles, and a nice polo shirt (OK, sort of obsessed), we had a great conversation with the guys running the store. Very knowledgeable, personable, etc. – good ambassadors for Tesla.
They said they sell 1-2 per day from their store, which is good but nowhere near the bookins being made in the California stores. Do the math, bodes well for TSLA shareholders.
While we were there, which was perhaps 30 minutes, they had several dozen visitors, lots of interested folks, not just lookieloos. All sorts of kids jumping into the rear facing seats, screaming ‘let’s get this car’! Future Tesla owners, start ’em young!
Stores are beautiful, this one is across from the Apple store – good location for visibility and association.
