I may be wrong,but I think that there is a problem in communication regarding paying the same for a car.
For the exact same car (same VIN) everyone pays the same price at any single point in time. There is no traditional haggling.
The price of a specific car can change over time due to: mileage, time since manufacture, change in standard equipment. However, that reduced price is the same for everyone.
The price of a specific type of car (model, option packages) does vary, due to above reasons. But again, everyone pays that price.
Again semantics: the purchaser is not getting a discount, the car has a discount.
Tesla needs to provide incentive for people to purchase vehicles with showroom wear and potentially previous gen equipment. How they go about letting everyone know about these vehicles equally is where I feel they could improve.
Also regarding sub 50 mile reduced price inventory. The vehicles that sit in the showrooms get lots of door and seat cycles, along with some wear and tear, but no miles.
Yes, but my point is: this is not really happening this way when it comes to inventory cars.
Yes, that is the way with factory orders, but not really with inventory. Even new inventory cars have been discounted varying amounts, not necessarily derivable from any formula...
I think supporting the line that Tesla does not discount/deal is hard to support with the precedent we have.
