Many Tesla owners and enthusiasts support a Change.org petition where some questions can be addressed to Tesla. The petition was started by YouTube host Denise CW. Tesla is offering one year of free access to Tesla FSD, or Supercharging, to people who buy a Tesla car in Q4,2022.
It’s no surprise then that many Tesla owners and fans have backed a recent petition on Change.org asking the company to reconsider for those who took delivery of their vehicles in Q4. Without customers taking their cars in Q4, Tesla’s numbers wouldn’t have been as impressive, and TSLA stock could have fallen even further.
With FSD priced at $199 per month, it may seem reasonable. A similar issue with supercharging, the discount can be counted against the additional price paid by customers. Both access to FSD and free Supercharge won’t cost Tesla an arm and a leg, as the former is simply access to software-based features, and the latter is already provided by the company, especially in times of crisis. In addition, the owner appeal could give Tesla a lot of positive sentiment from the car-buying public, which would be very beneficial for the company as it moves into the mainstream car market.
Tesla’s recent price adjustments are no joke. In an instant, Tesla has effectively positioned its vehicles like the Model 3 sedan and Model Y crossover among the most competitive electric cars in the market. As Tesla may be seeing new vehicle orders this year due to its affordable pricing, some of the company’s closest customers have expressed frustration at missing out on what could be described as big discounts on their cars. This was especially true for customers who took delivery in Q4 2022.
As the automaker focuses on delivering as many vehicles as possible in the fourth quarter, the company has urged customers to take delivery before the end of the year. This was largely successful as they helped Tesla deliver a total of 1,313,851 in 2022, a 40% increase over last year. That number, however, was lower than Wall Street’s expectations and partly caused TSLA’s stock to drop. Although it is highly unlikely that Tesla will accept requests from Tesla owners, some changes are possible.
