Hot Topics

  • Tesla Model 3 announced: Here’s what you need to know
    • $35,000.00 for the base level trim. And that’s before tax incentives from federal & state govs.
    • 215 Miles of range – minimum
    • 0-60 mph in less that 6 seconds – minimum
    • Seating for 5 comfortably
    • Front and rear trunks
    • Autopilot hardware standard (needs to be unlocked with paid upgrade)

    • Supercharging services standard
    • Panoramic glass roof as an option
  • Tesla Model 3 preorders equaled $7.5 billion worth of sales on day 1
    • Tesla has hit 325,000 pre-orders.
      • That’s $325,000,000 in revenue in their pocket in the first week.
      • That’s at least $11,050,000,000 in expected sales once those that reserved confirm their orders. And that’s after they spend the deposit money.
        • Add in the fact that people will add options.
        • Add in the fact that Tesla stands to gain % points for those who finance the car.
          • Now that’s still tiny compared to Audi, another luxury brand which saw revenue of a little more than $54,613,680,000 in 2012. But Tesla’s expected $11 billion – that’s pre-orders. If the car’s a success, regular orders will add to that.klll
