$1 billion in free cash flows (FCF) was generated in 2019. The disruption cycle of the electric vehicle maker is coming to an end. Most vehicle users are already aware that anything Tesla works. using this brand recognition, the EV maker could experience some higher rates of growth in terms of sales.
Tesla Seems to Be Gaining Prominence
Tesla seems to be on everyone’s lips at the moment. It remains unclear if the new electric vehicle trend is just a fad. However, most of Tesla’s customers are selling electric vehicles for the company. They do so using the time-tested technique for sales: word-of-mouth. Their testimonies serve as the unique selling proposition of the company.
This is quite peculiar for a company whose CEO isn’t known for following the traditional rules of marketing and sales.
Tesla’s $2.3 billion raise earlier this year also puts it in the right territory. While most automakers are scrambling for new debt or extensions to older lines of credit, Tesla is focusing on delivering the goods.
This shows that the automaker will most likely sail through this tough period. It is expected that its current momentum will slow down should the coronavirus pandemic either get worse or continue.
One thing s sure: a peculiar company with its controversial CEO may end up being the king of the hill when it comes to vehicle sales. The electric vehicle may become king of cars this year and beyond.
