Musk To Employees: No More Discounts On New Cars

No more discounts on new Teslas? Well that sucks. Since Musk said you can get a discount on cars that have been used for testing, just go in and test drive a Model X P90D and then ask for a discount because it has been test driven. big grin

Musk said there could be discounts to floor models, vehicles that had been used for testing or were damaged in delivery. "However, there can never - and I mean never - be a discount on a new car coming out of the factory in pristine condition, where there is no underlying rationale," he said. Musk was responding to a research note by an analyst with Pacific Crest Securities that criticized Tesla for offering discounts to boost third-quarter sales.
