    Hi dear all,
    I am a student in Durham University, Uk. I have a high interest in Tesla so I am now doing my final dissertation with Tesla Motors. Since my dissertation is relating to marketing orientation, so I need your guys some opinions. My research question is about what is the most important things for customers when you consider to buy Tesla. The answer can be design, function, price, safety, charging issue and so on. More details will be appreciated. I really need your help. Could you please take few minute to reply my post? Thank you all for helping me collect the data! Have a nice day!:biggrin:

    first on the list for me was how many bodies I can fit under the hood. that's why I paid two people in the show room to hop in. second, is it electric, third, can it go more then 80 miles on a charge.

    A long time ago Elon posted his Secret Plan blog.
    Since that time, despite the ups and downs, everything that Tesla has done, like develop the Model S, roll out supercharging for free in 3 continents and give away it's patents shows that the mission Elon outlined is being closely followed. The credibility of such consistent actions is I believe one of Teslas greatest strengths.
    This credibility supported early adopters to wait for their vehicles, it helped to protect Tesla from shorts and probably helped gain the support of Daimler, Toyota and the US government.
    I decided to buy a Tesla long before I first saw a Model S as it was apparent from early on that Tesla was different and had credibility.
    The fact that the Model S turned out to be a spectacularly good car was simply icing on the cake.
    If I was doing a thesis on Tesla I would zero in on the role of credibility and it's influence on marketing.
