Tesla's objective is to be established as the market leader in 10/20 years through its positioning and distribution.


In order to keep dominating the market and to grow the market share, Tesla will focus on its Utility per Dollar value, and its car maintainence costs (consumer needs to know why are they paying more to have a Tesla and if the maintenance cost is going to be high).

To achieve a good brand-image and therefore justify its price, Tesla needs strong brand marketing.

To make customers rely on post-selling services and the price of it, Tesla plans to increase the number of Supercharging stations, investing in battery strategies to lower the price, opening its patents to the competition in order to standardise the design, providing battery swap options and finally building a Gigafactory in Europe


In the coming five years, Tesla will need to expand its distribution channels by agreements with Car dealerships and access to the vast distribution channels that competitors have access to now

These measures will help Tesla improve its current margins, while achieving a higher market share in the Long Run
