Tesla will make the announcements next week
Tesla Motors plans to
reveal some news
about its updated dealer service and the company's Supercharger network next week.
While the details of these announcements are unclear right now, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made it clear that service will be completely revamped and 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."
As for the Superchargers, it’s likely that the company will be adding more in certain areas as more Model S’ are hitting the roads (and customers would enjoy driving longer distances knowing that Superchargers are plentiful along the way).
Tesla made another announcement earlier this week pertaining to financing. The automaker is partnering with Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank to offer customers more financing options for Tesla’s vehicles.
Tesla has had a pleasant 2013 so far, as the company recently announced that it is shipping over 500 Model S EVs weekly.
It also reported that
the company is now profitable
thanks to the Model S exceeding sales targets. Tesla Model S sales reached 4,750, which topped the sales outlook of 4,500 posted in the February shareholder letter.
Tesla recently shared another bit of Model S news, this time concerning the battery. The automaker decided not to produce the 40 kWh battery pack because only 5 percent of customers chose that option. Instead, customers will receive a 60 kWh pack.
The only small hiccup in Tesla’s schedule is the delay to production of
the Model X
. Tesla had hoped to begin production of the vehicle this year, but those plans have been put off until late 2014 (meaning deliveries will likely be pushed to 2015).

Dude, average household income in the US is like $50k a year. Your friends aren't average. I'm quite familiar with your area, it's one of the wealthiest in the country. Lots of people with money there but definitely not average. On a side note, your friends should be spending that money on retirement not $100k cars. They could easily have a couple million in retirement by their mid 50's if they invested wisely. My wife and I BOTH make $160k and there's no $50k car in our garage. The only $50k I would ever own would be used and it would be in the $30k or lower range.
