A new study from Bernstein Research, helmed by A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr., and Max Warburton, polled 286 Tesla owners on a variety of things from brand enjoyment to service experiences, even touching briefly on the Model 3.
The Model 3 will be priced at around U.S. $35,000, making it the most affordable offering from Tesla yet.
Kurt Kelty, Tesla's battery tech director, has left the company as the company enters "production hell" for the Model 3.
Tough conditions are expected to increase as Musk pushes forward on the 500,000 units per year target for the Fremont factory starting next year. Musk spoke about how the following months are going to be hell after possible manufacturing problems.
Tesla has beat analysts' revenue expectations in the past fours quarters. And a fully loaded Model 3 with 310 miles of range costs a hefty $59,500; the base model goes 220 miles (322 km) on a charge. An analyst warned that a wave of optimism toward Tesla could wane once investors begin to judge the company on product demand, growth and profit. That makes the 3 a hugely significant auto, not just for the rest of the world, but for Bangladesh as well. Have you ever seen an ad for the Model 3?
Or the Model 3 could dash Tesla's dreams. "We are doing what we can to have the future be as good as possible, to be inspired by what is likely to happen and to look forward to the next day", he said in a recent speech to the National Governor's Association.
That said, the vast majority of Tesla owners love their cars and many say they will never buy an internal combustion vehicle again, the note said.
Tesla's share price has surged 54 per cent since January in anticipation of the Model 3 launch, and Tesla's pricey valuation now exceeds that of traditional rivals like General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co. Once an automaker sells 200,000 electric cars in the US, the credit phases out.
Workers also complained that there is no clear policy for how workers might advance at Tesla.
Tesla appears to inspire the kind of enthusiasm Apple's iPhone generated among its fans and customers, Sacconaghi said.
Tesla started taking reservations for the Model 3 in March 2016.
