The company has already managed to close 10% of retailstores and assures that because of the low attendance, sooner or later they would still be closed. Nevertheless, she intends to restore the work of some of them, but with a smaller number of employees. In the next few months, management will evaluate the effectiveness of another 20% of retail outlets and decide whether to leave them open or close them.

As a result, Tesla plans to close only halftheir stores. Because of this, the cost of Model S and Model X cars, which have fallen in price by 6%, will increase by 3%. In other words, due to the closure of only half of the stores, the savings of buyers will also be only 50% of the previously established prices. The cost of Tesla Model 3 will remain the same - after all, at the time of the announcement, the company claimed that it would cost 35,000 rubles.
