Why Tesla Motors Electric Cars Have So Few Buyers (NASDAQ: TSLA) - 24/7 Wall St. If you don't feel like reading the entire article, here's my thumbnail summary. . . TESLA: While getting the Model X into production and making sure it's right, we may not be able to produce and deliver as many cars before the end of the year as we earlier had planned. 24/7: What happened to all those thousands and thousands of people who were supposedly waiting for one? TESLA: Our new referral and pre-owned car programs expose more people to the benefits of driving electric vehicles. 24/7: Car companies don't offer incentives unless they're having trouble moving the metal. And then, finally, right at the very end, the article gets around to answering the question that it began with. Why do people not want Tesla cars? "Maybe Tesla sells cars that are too expensive. Maybe its cars are niche vehicles for which there is not much demand. Perhaps it does not have enough charging stations." If you're looking for any deeper analysis than that, you'll come away disappointed.
