The Future Of Tesla’s Mobile Service Fleet

August 17th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla continues to ramp up its Mobile Service fleet, with a mix of existing Ford Transit vans, Model S sedans, and a few Model X SUVs. The Ford Transit vehicles that have comprised the majority of Tesla's service fleet since its inception cost $80,000 to set up, but that price tag turns the empty shell of a van into an extremely dense, highly effective mobile service station for Tesla's vehicles. More recently, the company has started repurposing a few Model S vehicles coming back from lease as mobile service vehicles

Including those from Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Finland, the UK — so many made the effort to come from far and wide. Deep in conversation on membership and events, Tesla allowed us time (over gratuitous amounts of food) to share valuable ideas on how to better serve our local Tesla owners


More Nuggets From Tesla’s Q2 2018 Investor Conference Call

August 4th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

This quarter, the Tesla earnings call came on a day that I was already booked to basically spend all of my time slogging around Los Angeles, for CleanTechnica meetings with cleantech leaders as well as family engagements. That resulted in me listening in on the call from my Model 3 in some random neighborhood to the north of Los Angeles, which was surprisingly comfortable. I furiously took notes on the call while comparing them to the quarterly shareholder letter — while also chatting back and forth with our central team as we rallied around CleanTechnica Director & Chief Editor Zach Shahan in preparation for his line of questioning for Tesla CEO Elon Musk

The Model 3 is going to level up Tesla's game in many ways, with the first and foremost being the lower price point.
