    SA Discount

    Is it possible for an SA to give a discount when you order? Do they have the ability to provide free options like upgraded paint or wheels? I heard it’s better to place an order with an SA for this reason. But not sure if anyone else has experienced this.

    Model Y Ordering & Delivery in AZ Oct 2020

The next day, I took the RAV4 to Carmax to get their appraisal. Carmax offered me $2100 more than Tesla, so...

    Who should buy second Tesla?

    We took delivery of a Model 3 for me a few months ago. We are going to order a Model Y for my wife. She has a tesla.com account so that she can use my Model 3. Should she place the order for the Model Y? Does it matter which Tesla account places the order?

    Tesla Sold Under 150,000 Model 3s In Last 4 Quarters In The U.S.

    We can also estimate the Model Y sales. By the way of presenting the market potential for the Model Y, Tesla unknowingly revealed also the sales results for the Model 3 in the U.S. market. We say unknowingly because obviously the company has the data, but doesn’t want to report it to the public...
