How Tesla Sets Itself Apart

1. It develops cars like a software product.

Tesla builds cars by developing its core software on a unique hardware, just like Apple develops the iPhone. This enables the company to send over the air updates to its cars’ if available just like every other software does . This sets them apart from other traditional auto industry where the product is the same for as long as you drive it.

2. It simplifies the buying process, putting the consumer in control.

Tesla doesn’t use traditional way of advertising. Instead is uses the classic software “inbound” sales model: Tesla owners happily advertise their own cars. Purchasing a Tesla is moderately straightforward: You go to tesla.com, pick a car model, add the feature you want, place your deposit, and set time for pickup. Done.

Who wouldn’t have any desire to possess a vehicle that makes no pollution, avoiding visits to gas station, and is genuinely green? Different automakers will be playing make up for lost time with this issue for quite a while.

5. Charging on supercharger

Tesla has always been dedicated to providing accessible, widespread fast-charging to its owners.

Duties when importing Tesla in the Philippines

Additional Cost: Full Self-Driving

All new Tesla cars have the hardware needed in the future for full self-driving in almost all circumstances. The system is designed to be able to conduct short and long distance trips with no action required by the person in the driver’s seat.

By July of 2020 , Tesla will increase the price of the Full Self-Driving package by $1,000 or 50,000 pesos from $7000 or 350,000 pesos.
