Everything that is new at Tesla can of course be found with us. I’ll never forget the first time I got to drive a Model 3 years ago. But if you’ve ever tried to buy a Tesla, you’ll know that things run differently at this store than at other manufacturers. Buying a car with a few clicks is one thing, waiting for your car or a repair is another. And that also applies to the test cars, just a few clicks is not enough. In Corona times and because of the semiconductor crisis, we at AUTO BILD are used to grief, we don’t always get what we want (everyone who is currently writing wish lists knows that too), but to be clear: Sometimes there is just something no Tesla for our tests.
Elon Musk is one of the most fascinating managers of our time. He sees and does things differently. Just again: His battery cell factory in Grünheide does not accept the billions in funding that would be available. Tesla wants to stay free in all of its decisions.
