Should you buy an electric vehicle?

Posted by:

In 2017, for the first time, new EV sales passed one million units globally. What is more spectacular is that they are expected to exceed two million by the end of this year. By 2020, EV producers could double that number and reach 4.5 million. According to McKinsey, these numbers represent about 5 percent of the global light-vehicle market and are expected to reach nearly 35 percent by 2030.

This means that in less than 15 years from now, every third car ...

Shipping a Tesla – Shipping the future

Posted by:

Yet, its success is quite similar to that of Facebook and the way it’s been transforming modern communication. It reminds us of Uber’s market entrance and the strength with which it disrupted transport services. It reminds us of Apple’s marketing and the way it makes the whole world look at it. A Tesla is a combination of it all. Nothing new, yet a completely new miracle of the future.

Today, you can buy a new Tesla either online from the  Continue Reading →

Is Faraday Future a Threat to Tesla?

Posted by:

If Back to the Future was a movie coming out this year rather than in the 1980s, what could substitute the hoverboard today? Not literally, of course! After all, hoverboards are inimitable! But still, what is the innovation that has sparked both excitement and suspicion in present days? Something that used to seem so far away and is yet so close? The first big thing that comes to my mind is electric vehicles (followed by self-driving cars, which is totally ...

Tesla Motors Overcoming Barriers to Entry

The automobile industry has been considered one of the most competitive business fields – if you want to join the players, you would first have to consider all the threats along the way.

Only until Tesla showed up in the picture.

Tesla Motors has been one of the most ...

Tesla’s Efforts Toward Globalization

Posted by:

Tesla has often been referred to as “The Apple of Automakers”. This sole statement speaks plenty about the company’s products, culture, and marketing. Just like Apple and its business model have revolutionized the tech industry, Tesla redefines the image of the modern automaker. It differs greatly from industry peers who have struggled to adapt their product lines to meet the future demand for electric vehicles. This is why Tesla’s marketing approach is considered more “Silicon Valley” than “Detroit”.

Just like a ...

Tesla is losing money. So what?

Posted by:

In August 2015, analysts confirmed that Tesla Motors was losing money on every vehicle it sold. This created a rather disturbing reaction from investors and led to a continuous decrease in the company’s stock price since then. Wouldn’t it then be natural to say with worry that the more you sell, the more you will lose?

According to analysts, Tesla’s decrease in performance and revenue should be a concern. It has been confirmed that the company loses more than $4,000 ...
