Tesla is preparing to start production of the hugely popular Model 3, which had garnered over 400,000 bookings in the US and one of the things it wants to avoid is investing into more infrastructure such as physical stores to have their cars delivered.
Electrek had the inside information from an investor who attended a private investor call held by Tesla recently.
“The delivery of the cars is where the investment is needed. We need to deliver three or four times as many cars. But we don’t want to have three or four times as many delivery centers. How do we make that delivery process more streamlined, less paperwork, less bureaucracy and get people really ahead of time with really well-produced instruction videos for how to use their car. And well, of course, the best instruction is like not having instructions. And you will actually be able to play all of the instructions needed for your car on your car.”
This makes sense because if it takes an hour to get a car delivered to a customer, 400,000 hours awaits them and that is savagely unproductive time.
Tesla has announced on Friday that they had raised $1.2billion recently by selling off shares and convertible notes.
