From Elon Musk's blog regarding Tesla's approach to selling their cars:
A good read!
Tell ya' what ... if I could afford the "S", I'd get one! Awesome vehicle.
Oh so true on your "little jab" ... (certification, etc., MY A**)!My little jab out of the way, Elon is a genius and a visionary. The "old guard" will always resist change in any way possible, so naturally they're trying to railroad his new model of selling. But in the end, progress always wins. I wouldn't bet against Musk.
Yeah but the question is how many have they built to date? Last I saw it was about 300 and the assembly problems were continuing. They supposedly have firm orders for several thousand but they can't get them built. So they can have the most gee- whiz sales setup in the world, but it doesn't do much good if they can't deliver the product.The CEO Elon Musk said they should sell 20,000 next year. But he will not give out this year number.
