They are picked up at the service centres now or delivered to your door if you are far enough away. That won't change.So where will customers pick up their cars? Service Centers? Information centers?
Will one still see Teslas being displayed in Malls, such as in San Antonio's North Star mall?
Correct. They said reducing the number of test drives, closing low volume stores, and turning the ones in high traffic areas into galleries. However, everyone took that to mean no test drives, closing all stores. Not the same thing at all.They never said they were killing all test drives or closing all stores.
I got my Model 3 in Aug without ever seeing one or touching one. Had to travel 5 hours to get it. Couldn’t be happier with my M3. I had faith in Tesla and Elon that they would deliver on there promises of a game changing car. AND THEY DID! You would have to pry it from my cold dead hands to take it away!! I’m 75 and the M3 is the most fun I have had driving a car EVER!!I’ve done both. I’m not saying it’s the norm or even wise, but it’s worked fine for me.
The short test drive in a pretty anxious mode will not add any useful information other than perhaps to confuse things more
Right. Mostly a test drive is to find out any particular concerns you might have. (For me it was how the car behaves in a parking lot.)Agree. I am generally quite tense and more worried about ending up in a ding or a curb rash, that I rarely enjoy the test drives. And I hated the AP test drive. Luckily i didn't let that test drive cloud my decision as I have done extensive reading and watching videos on AP, that I knew that it was Gold. Thanks to TMC.
