If you are working for Tesla and plan to buy a Series 3 car does Tesla provides any additional discount. Like lowering the APR some discount in APR or total car value.
- Tesla / EngImaPromoreWe got some deals on the Model 3 which included premium interior and FSD the second time a discount was offered but we were told this was the last time. Tesla financing also matched any financing offers from other sources and we were allowed to use PTO to help pay for the car. We also get subsidized 3 year lease deals on Model S/X. We have a carpool program where each group of 4-5 people gets a Model S or an X. We have a ride sharing program where we get paid to pick up other employees. Free valet supercharging and preferred parking for Tesla's. Some teams also have a small car pool they can borrow cars from and we have performance awards for employees that let you borrow a Model S/X for a week. It's not as good as other car companies but it's not exactly nothing either! Beats the free cereal and energy drinks I got from my last company.
- Seems like the car benefit sucks. Other automakers give out ultra subsidized 2-year car leases, including insurance.
- They are giving a zero-APR lease on Model S/X if I remember correctly, but yeah: “not a profitable company”. I think I was more annoyed by the lack of 401k matching than perks on the cars though.
(By the way the perks on google products at Google is pretty lame as well: no discount on google cloud, music, YouTube? Phones, home assistant?)
