    Tesla Touchless delivery seems to be working well for them in Europe

    A Tesla owner in Europe shared his experience with the company’s newest “touchless delivery” process that’s aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.

    Tesla implemented the new delivery process amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in its efforts to eliminate contact between a car buyer and Tesla delivery employees.

    The new process will ensure social distancing between the buyer and the Tesla staff from start to finish. The vehicles are to be unlocked by using the Tesla phone application, and paperwork is placed in the owner’s new car. The new process will keep the possibility of the transfer of COVID-19 to a minimum by making human-to-human contact nonexistent during the customer’s visit to the store.

    A recent video from a new Tesla owner in Belgium by the name of Matthias Vlogt shared his experience with the new touchless delivery system on YouTube. Vlogt was prompted first to visit an automated locker system to retrieve his key card. The paperwork required to accept delivery of the vehicle was left in the car for the new owner to sign and Vlogt was needed to drop the paperwork off at an on-site location. This eliminates any human interaction, not allowing for the transfer of the highly-contagious virus.

    You have to ask yourself; "up from what"

    Is it better to be down 70% and have 14K sales, or be up 25% and have 1,400?
