Tesla Referral system you didn’t know about 

Tesla gave away more than 80 Roadsters For Free in 2019. Wait….. For Free? Are you kidding?? Before this article, might you didn’t know about this. Right? But you read it right, some people got Tesla cars ( Roadsters & Model Y) for free in the past by just referring Tesla cars to others. So here’s the real story:

In 2015 Tesla started a referral system for marketing purposes with which People can get Tesla Roadster Founder’s edition for free. And the system was something like this; With the program when someone referred Tesla to others then he got rewarded by Tesla. For every successful referral (if a person makes a purchase of a new Tesla car from referral code) the referrers get $1000 & the new buyer gets $1000 off on the purchase.

Tesla introduced this to increase their customer base, and literally, they got an amazing response. This drew Tesla a lot of press attention and inspired a lot of marketing from Tesla owners themselves. And from June 2017 to June 2019 Tesla recorded more than 40,000 sales with this referral system in the USA only. However, there’s so much promotion that in 2019, Tesla had to give away 80 new Roadsters for free. That’s a lot for any company. So not only Tesla got a lot from these referrals but some Tesla owners got Tesla Roadster Founder’s edition for free. A win-win system for both the brand & customers.

So let me give you a brief idea about the Tesla referral system (2021).
