I think he meant to say if you're not going to buy a Model S you made a mistake. But that means the 3 is a mistake?
Unit you need a part replaced, but oh wait, no longer produced! Already true for MCU1 which is no longer available new, only returns.As an owner of an S & X, am I the only one not bugged by this news at all? Since I'm treating my S & X as forever cars, I selfishly wish they stop production now.
Doesnt S/X have higher margins? Or did at least before the cuts. I wouldnt mind if they increased the prices back and gave some premium features that dont involve hardware like priority service, free or high cap wifi/LTE, free supercharging, priority phone line, loaner
I would think 3 and Y will be much higher margin cars. Pretty typical for industry. The mid and entry level cars are the biggest margin. Can’t wait to see what Tesla will being for a entry level car.Not sure if the actual margins are that high when you consider all the SC visits, lemons etc
Musk is just acknowledging that the S and X are now filling the roles of the MB S series and the BMW 7.
He could have been more tactful. He was thinking from the standpoint of Tesla revenue.
Yep, read the threads on failing MCU1's: ~$2,200 for a refurb MCU, +$500 core charge if you want to keep the old one (though one person just reported they were able to keep theirs with without the core charge, so that may have changed, or in famous Tesla fashion is just inconsistent SC to SC).really? They only sell refurb? Does not seem like pricing has come down.
