We all know that Tesla was founded by an ambitious group of engineers who earnestly believed that they could build cars that could run on pure electrical propulsion technology, and those would just be as good or even better than all the existing models of premium cars currently running on fossil fuels.
They were convinced that good quality, high-performance electric vehicles could be built, without compromising on either the performance or on-road driving experience.
The pioneers at Tesla wanted to build new-age vehicles of the future that would run not on the environment ruining fossil fuels but on energy sourced from solar, wind, and other sustainable natural sources, stored in rechargeable batteries and used to power their range of vehicles.
That belief and confidence have at long last paid off, and they have managed to build an automotive powerhouse.
It not only builds cars but Powerbanks and solar panels, which has not only challenged the traditional gasoline guzzling motor vehicle manufacturers but forced them to rethink their plans and belatedly jump on the electric vehicle bandwagon.
While other manufacturers were trying to make smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles; trying to woo customers with their budget prices and deals, promising them more mileage per gallon of gasoline, Tesla was delivering on their promise to produce better designed, electric propulsion cars.
These outperformed in all standard parameters in comparison to the existing gasoline guzzling Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles.
Tesla cars are the icons of the industry now; they now set the design standards, control the technology and they have hastened the pace of innovation and development in the automotive industry with their range of high-performance electric cars. People no more talk about electric cars in the future; for Tesla, the future is here, the future is today.
But we are aware that good technology and innovative quality do not come cheap, and only those who have the means, and others who in all sincerity wants to protect the environment are investing in Tesla’s vehicles of the future.
Therefore, when one buys a well- designed and relatively expensive electric car, they must be cautious about the accessories they buy which always will be associated with the iconic brand. Not all car accessories sold today would be a fit or be appropriate for Tesla’s range of futuristic electric motor vehicles.
The accessories should match the quality standards set by the trailblazing company. The Tesla vehicle owners would need the best in terms of design, type of material, and performance to evenly match their incredible machine.
The car owners when buying Tesla accessories need to take into consideration the following factors before investing in aftermarket accessories:
When a person has paid premium dollars for a futuristic machine, they would never compromise on the quality of the accessory they add to the vehicle or buy any associated accessory that does not live up to the style and quality of the vehicle. One has to note the quality grade of the raw materials used to make the accessory to its safeness during lifetime use. The accessory material should be harmless to humans, as well as the environment. It should be made of a material that passes all requisite quality and safety parameters including fireproofing standards.
When one attaches an aftermarket or a third-party accessory, they would like it to match the basic design of the vehicle. Tesla takes a lot of pride in its design process and the accessories must live up to the company’s high standards. People generally buy accessories that can be installed in all the models currently in the marketplace.
Ease of Installation and Use
Since Tesla doesn’t sell its vehicles through dealerships and has a limited number of service stations, every accessory should be designed for ease of installation and use. Accessories should be so designed; it can be easy to install without the need for technical support.
Since Tesla doesn’t trust or believe in old outdated technology, they would expect their customers to choose accessories that reflect their core vision. Buyers would prefer to choose accessories and accessories makers who believe in the design and performance vision of Tesla.
The most important criteria an aftermarket Tesla accessory should qualify for is its performance. As the sturdy and robust Tesla vehicles, the accessories should also stand the test of time. It should function better and last longer than the other generic accessories sold in the market. The reputation of the company and the brand Tesla hinges not only on the performance of the engine and chassis but also the accessories associated with the vehicle.
