Tesla builds own vehicle carriers to aid delivery

Tesla builds own vehicle carriers to aid delivery

And earlier this month, Musk said an increase in delivery volume would slow the speed at which Tesla's customer service employees would be able to respond to customers, though he did not indicate how long the delays would last.

While the method they are using is a bit unusual, if it does help them overcome their delivery issue, maybe it is the right move right now.

The organization has additionally reported a "way to-entryway benefit" named Tesla Direct to help with Model 3 conveyance amid surge week.

The automaker offers delivery to customers who don't live within 160 miles of a Tesla service center, but Electrek's report, which cites emails sent to customers in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, suggests Tesla has at least temporarily expanded its delivery service.

First, after finding no vehicle carriers available to deliver the new "entry-level" model, Musk approved plans to build auto carriers to transport new Model 3 sedans to Tesla locations. In the email, the Tesla delivery manager noted that cars will be driven to buyers by a Customer Experience Professional. "If we haven't reached out to you, reach out to us", he said.

The shares have recovered since then, trading 15 percent higher for the year, with Choo boosting the latest quarterly results. LVMH, PVH Corp. and Tapestry also looked at Versace in recent months, according to a report on Sunday by Women's Wear Daily .

The Tesla CEO has also in the past tweeted that the company was in "production hell" when it encountered bottlenecks in the production process of the Model 3, although these problems have been quelled, with Tesla reporting targets for Model 3 production being hit.

In a tweet, Musk wrote, "Wow, thanks for offering to help!"

A follower of Musk in the aforementioned social media platform had inquired earlier about his order of a Model 3 All Wheel Drive (AWD) which he reportedly placed back in June.

Some news outlets interpreted the description as an indication that Tesla is building its own trailers from the ground up. The company began taking $1,000 reservation deposits in March of 2016 for the new electric vehicle. Last quarter, Tesla built 53,339 vehicles including 28,578 Model 3s.
