This event was too unbelievable, I had to share it. This evening a stranger knocked on our door:
“Sorry to bother you, but I saw your Tesla and was wondering if you were satisfied with the vehicle”.
She was interested in reserving a Model 3. I said I was very satisfied and will definitely put down the 1000$ on March 31st to get another one.
I warned her that 35k might not include the biggest battery pack.
Stranger: “I do not need the biggest battery, I want to use it for city driving.”
Well I said, for city driving, you could buy a Nissan Leaf today… Here is the punch:
Stranger: “A Nissan what? I have never heard of it”
A Nissan Leaf I said, like a leaf from a tree.
Stranger: “I have a Toyota Rav 4 and a Honda Civic, I am looking for a good reliable car”
She is probably one of the many individuals in the same situation that will reserve a Model 3!
Nissan, a well established car company. The first company that produced a mass market electric car. It is hard to believe that she did not know about the electric model! She knew about Tesla, a company that was not even on the media map 4 years ago.
With the best product, word of mouth and social media you can go far, very far.
Once again, you nailed it. All your hard work is getting recognized by the whole planet, good job Tesla!
