As it shares its plans to open a Giga factory in Berlin, electric autonomous vehicle (EAV) manufacturer Tesla is seeking to expand to the German country its energy-saving solutions products and services.
This move includes providing a form of tariff to help owners to save money while utilizing the charging points for Tesla’s car models.
As Joey Klender of Teslarati reports, the company is also scouting in the opinion of German consumers to see if it’ll be worth it if the company conducts a complete dive into the Central European country’s energy sector.
This comes after the company has smashed analysts’ expectations of the company during its second-quarter performance for this year – effectively establishing investor and public confidence on Tesla.
The automaker ramped up its Megapack system which made earnings for the first time. Tesla’s solar deployment capabilities also increased threefold which cost $1.49 per watt – cheaper compared to the industry standard.
The company has sought the German consumers’ opinion on the move through a questionnaire that aims to measure the German public’s pulse on the matter at hand.
They were asked a series of questions ranging from what products they are interested in buying, how much they are willing to pay, and if they are willing to let Tesla control their EAV’s charging time to help them save some money.
Results from the survey will be used by the company to ultimately decide whether they will expand its energy unit to the country. The carmaker will face competition from companies such as Greenpeace Energy, EWS Schonau, Lichtblick, among others if it throws its hat in the ring of the German energy market.
