Tesla is expected next week to make an announcement about its updated dealer service and its Supercharger network.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has previously announced that the automaker’s dealer service will be completely revamped as it will be made a top priority.
“I’m an engineer, so service is not something that I naturally do,” Musk said. “But it’s the right thing for the company and I think we have the opportunity to re-engineer service.”
The company is expected to add more Superchargers as the Model S vehicles begin to hit the roads. Regarding the automaker’s financing, Tesla will make partnerships with Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank to be able to offer customers more financing options for its models. So far this year, Tesla had a good start as it announced it is already shipping more than 500 Model S vehicles weekly.
Thanks to the Model S sales, which exceeded expectations, the automaker managed to turn profitable. The model sold 4,750 units, surpassing the 4,500 sales outlook posted in February. Recently, Musk announced that Tesla will no longer manufacture the 40 kWh battery pack due to lack of demand, with only 5% of the customers choosing this option.
