All Tesla models are fully electric, which allows the vehicles to run without an engine
and emissions, there for you to not have to worry about the expense of gas.

Tesla models have an outstanding range of 200 to 300 miles on a fully charged battery
due to our car battery being largest in the market, this allows for you to drive farther
without worrying about charging your Tesla every night.

Tesla is one of the only cars that can be considered a ‘self-driving’ vehicle, Tesla
engineers have developed innovative software called “Auto-Pilot”, and this allows the
driver to not drive the vehicle while on the road.

Tesla will always be technologically advanced due to their updatable operation system,
this always the owner to always be up-to-date with the latest technology available in

Tesla owners receive federal and state credits for being eco-friendly and driving a zero
emissions vehicle, therefore the owner will essentially get the car cheaper due to
annual credits.

Salesperson: Hi, my name is Brennan. Can I help you?
Customer: Yes, I have been doing my research about electric cars and I
would like to look at your Model S.
Salesperson: awh yes right this way. The Model S is one of my favorite cars
between its performance, efficiency, and technology.
Customer: Yes I am defiantly a fan of avoiding the expense of gas
Salesperson: All of our Tesla models are fully electric, which allow for our
car to not have any engine. Without an engine, you do not need gas and
there are zero emissions. So not only are you saving money, but you are also
saving our atmosphere from pollution.
Customer: Yes defiantly will be saving money at the pump, but Tesla’s are
very expensive compared to other electric cars on the market.
Salesperson: That is true, but Tesla’s carry a lot of value with being a
luxury car and the amount of technology in Tesla’s. Also Tesla owners can
receive federal and state credits
Customer: I did not know that
Salesperson: yes, federal and state tax credits are available for people who
drive zero emissions cars.
Customer: Well, that makes it easier on the financial side
Salesperson: So, now that we have established the financials, would you
like to drive off the lot with a new Tesla?
Customer: Yes, I think I could do that
Salesperson: Well, it’s been nice to do business with you. Follow me this
way to my office so we can sign some papers.
