How to become a tesla dealer.

I realy think that Tesla is the future. Just as the petrol engine changed the steam engine..the electric motor will change the future, an Tesla is an important part of that change .
I want to take part of that and help others see the way too. I want to become an official dealer for Tesla models in my country but i don't know what i have to do and what that involves.
Dose someone know any thing in this area of bussines?

I'm not sure how their international relations work, but I know that they are staying away from independent dealers in North America and selling directly themselves over the internet with their own physical showrooms/outlets.

As far as I know, the best way to get involved would be to either get involved with their distribution and delivery of the cars, or try to get hired as a manager/sales/customer service person for your country or area.

Direct distribution via internet and simple showrooms/stores is also the future, not expensive dealerships that get in the way and bombard people with obnoxious car ads. I second Noah's idea of getting a job directly with Tesla in a store, service center, or regional manager. There are tons of job postings at both Tesla and SpaceX, seems things are really booming.

These guys don't know what they're talking about. Becoming a Tesla dealer is very simple.

Buy every single share of TSLA, and boom! You are THE Tesla dealer!

I don't have the necessary capital to build a showroom. I was thinking on starting with an online shop where peopel can order and buy the car. An after the no of buyers start to reise and the profit starts to come build a showroom. The only thing i want is to have exclusive rights in my country.

How do i have to talk to? Those any one know.

Cosmin = nnt? Or just ignorant?

Nnt? What dose that mean? And no i'm not ignorant. I just don't have the necessary funds to build a showroom. But i do have the necessary website and i just want to take part of something that will become a must have in the future. I'm positive that the future belongs to electric powered cars. Unless the indian car company tata will find a way for there air powered car to work.

So is Tesla.

. I was thinking on starting with an online shop where peopel can order and buy the car. They have their own website that they sell from. They would not allow you to set up a competing one.

Tesla isn't like your normal car company. Tesla doesn't sell anyone rights. If there are cars being sold, it is Tesla-employed and Tesla-paid people doing it. The only people with exclusive rights in a country is Tesla, not franchisees.

If there is enough of a market for a showroom, then Tesla will build it, not sell the rights to build one.

If you want to get involved, get hired.

The quote tags didn't work in my first post, so I've added them here.

I agree, forget about the dealership idea: it is not Tesla because it is not the future.

Although, what you could do if you have enough cash, sort of informal, considering that every model seems to have a long line up, you could order a bunch of cars for yourself, then drive them around and show the people in your neighbourhood, give them rides and let them drive it just enough so they find out they love it, then when they ask where they can buy one, you'll say the Tesla car company, but there's a waiting list of about a year.... BUT if you want, because I'm a nice guy I can sell you this one and you won't have to wait.

Sounds very risky, especially if you have no intention of owning a Tesla yourself in the longer run, but it might allow you to live your fantasy and think of yourself as the Tesla dealer for your town.

Good luck.

Cosmin, your plan doesn't even make any sense. Why would I want to go to your online shop when Tesla already has one? Yeah I understand you could pay some shady online marketing firm to try to drive people to your site, but the marketing will be extremely low quality and it would just be a waste of your money.

The only function you could possibly serve is if you held inventory in a convenient location for customers to view see and pick up a car from, but Tesla is not doing that yet. And by that, I mean producing bunches of excess cars with no buyers so that salespeople (or saleswebsites) can sell them.

TR;
what waiting list of about a year? At most, it is sitting at a couple of months in NA, and who knows where it will settle elsewhere?

TR: Even in Norway, Elon stated that everyone who had orders in now, would get their cars by october and all ordering the next few weeks, would get their by the end of the year..

But one need to be quick, as 2013 production is soon sold out. ;-)

So, not a years wait right now, but soon.. very soon..

@Cosmin
you can always ask Tesla to become one of their employee in their shops (geleries), I guess it would be great job :)

If you have substantial money, buy shares and a Model S, reserve a Model X if you like them, buy a used Roadster to round out your collection...

If you have some money, buy a Model S, if you keep it it long enough it will actually pay for itself (in fuel and maintanece savings), 8-12 years depending on incentives and how much petrol costs increase where you live... Plus you will have an excellent ride and the best sedan on the road. It would be silly to sell your Model S even at a decade old in my view as it does not rust and serves as a good back up car or a safe and low operational cost training driver for the kids or nephew or niece or what not even if you buy a newer offering from Tesla Motors.

If you can not afford to buy or finance a Model S now, apply for a job there. Eventually you will be able to afford a Tesla, work hard and save, and Gen III a few years away your starter car is coming...

Yeah buy lots of shares and a model S and promote it whenever you can, so you'll make money through your shares. It may not be quite as direct as you were hoping for, but it will a hundred times simpler for you because starting a business is a nightmare from what I gather. Owning shares is bliss... just don't do it on margin.

Yeah, true. Time will tell, but I suspect the model S will age really well... just replace the battery pack every 10 years or so and the car can last virtually forever.

Well of the businesses I have created and grew myself or bought and ran they have generated a lot of headaches, some did ok and some lost money, all with a lot of time and effort invested. Of the ExxonMobil stock I bought a little more then a decade ago it has required no time, effort or worries and has tripled in value...

All this may seem odd for some one very pro EV, but oil is NOT going away, large trucks and most aircraft will still need oil based fuel for at least a decade or two more and we will need plastics for centuries to come. As a thinking person, EV's just make a lot of sense, we can lessen our dependence on foreign oil and use the oil that we have in a more intelligent way (make stuff with it rather than burn it and spew poison in our air).

I believe that Tesla Motors has a bright future, barring exceptionally bad events, and I would venture that Tesla Motors has 'the right stuff' to become a major international automaker, as big as Chrysler was. How rewarding will holding stock be? Well that is a good question that I can not really answer yet. Good companies to hold stock in are stable, large, make a product that people need and want, have a bright future and treat the shareholders right (pay out regular decent dividends). Tesla does not fit these perimeters yet so I am not sure I would buy a lot of TSLA stock, maybe a token amount to please the idealistic enthusiast in me... But for the crazy young idealistic investors that buy 'sexy' stocks like Apple and Google and the like, TSLA is a cut above...

From what I can see Model S is the best car you can buy right now (though I could nitpick about a few items - but it is still the best), I have not heard of any significant buyers remorse and no other car can pay for itself with operational savings like Tesla... You just have to hold on to it long enough and it appears that it will be possible, as long as you do not wreck the thing up. Again some questions remain about durability of certain features - like that delicate touchscreen or those odd pop out handles, but it appears that the car could run for decades if you change the battery pack, that really impresses me and will change the automotive game. In short buying a Model S is a very smart decision for anyone that can afford it or can finance it, the numbers are better than any new ICE car AND better than a most used ICE cars! For a new car that is simply amazing...

Edit; perimeters borders on the right word, but some of its parameters are wrong.

Thanks Brian H, or Brain H... hehe
