I looked into getting one and was offered a car after the first batch. If you don't live in CA or some sections of the east coast you have to pay an additionaly service fee of 20k to have a tech from the company come and install the charging unit in your garage, and apparently they will fly someone out in the future if you have problems. They also want 75k down to order the car. So for me, and for most of the country, 75k down initially and a total of 120k to get the car - just got a little too pricey. I suspect at 75k total they would sell alot of these, but at 120k its going to be tough. I mean 120k - thats real money to most.
Well, they finally took away all the covering/scaffolding
..and voila, the Tesla store on Santa Monica was actually underneath it!
- still looked under construction on the inside, and no cars yet.
but it's there.
no parking on the street in front, but was able to snap this.
The charging unit is included in the price of the car. There is no $20K charge for installing it.20K for a charging unit??? gold trimmed i take it...
seriously though, i thought the tesla could charge using 115 VAC..
