Tesla dealers in Switzerland

Hi Forummers.



I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on whether there's a difference between Tesla dealers in Switzerland.



I've dealt with one dealership a couple of times recently and not having a great time. Is this the same for all the dealers, or could I get better service/deals with a different dealer?



Has anyone bought a Tesla in Switzerland and had a great experience? If so, which dealer/sales person would you recommend?


Cheers!

Dear Pedants on EF.



I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on whether there's a difference between Tesla SHOPS in Switzerland.



I've dealt with one SHOP a couple of times recently and not having a great time. Is this the same for all the TESLA SHOPS, or could I get better service/deals with a different SHOP?



Has anyone bought a Tesla in Switzerland and had a great experience? If so, which SHOP/sales person would you recommend?


Cheers!

Re: Tesla dealers in Switzerland

I bought a Model 3 LR a year ago. I ordered it on my iPhone. There is no difference between Service Centres and their Zurich showroom. There are no deals. The only difference is who you speak to there. Some are great some are idiots - glad I stuck with the iPhone...

Re: Tesla dealers in Switzerland

Good on you, I can't quite bring myself to order a car off a website. Just not there mentally on that one. I need a human being to speak to and as with the experience you've had, not exactly finding their sales people inspiring :-(

Re: Tesla dealers in Switzerland

You can go to the store in Lausanne.

https://www.tesla.com/de_ch/findus?b...ation=lausanne

They can hand-hold you through an order there. But you will need a credit-card.
I do not believe it is possible to put down the deposit without a credit-card.

At last, that's the impression I got last Summer.

Add to that when I ordered the car a Model 3 had never been seen in Europe. I‘ve owned and driven about 30 cars and the Tesla is by far the most amazing I have ever driven.

BTW if you do buy, before you do PM me for my referral code. This will give us both 1500kms free Super Charging...

Re: Tesla dealers in Switzerland

I went to the store in Zurich city to see the Model 3 before buying. I got a great overview of features, timeline, etc and then they simply opened up a web browser on the computer for me to place my order. I think the shop salespeople are more helpful in the US where there is a significant inventory available - they help people find cars that meet a customer's required specifications. They also helped people find so called "Performance Stealth" cars that were fast but without the bigger tires, brakes, spoilers. AFAIK, these don't exist in Switzerland.

For „stealth“ Model 3 a Long Range dual model can be upgraded for CHF2000.-. This, with two software updates increasing power during 2019, brings the 0-60 time below 4 secs...
