Tesla Deliveries: From DIY Trailers In 2012 To Price-Shifting Leadership In 2019 (Tesla Inside Out)
Resuming our "Tesla Inside Out" series, this video picks up where David Havasi and I left off last time, chuckling about a wild DIY Tesla delivery story. David and a team of early 2012 employees built a trailer to deliver early Model S's without having any real clue what they were doing. Luckily, they got the job done. He also mentioned a funny story about a Miami delivery truck in highlighting their overall novice delivery truck awareness back in 2012.

Continuing our discussion of Tesla and David Havasi's long history at Tesla, we took up where we left off, talking about pre-Model S days at Tesla.

Tesla Inside Out — Tesla History From 7-Year Insider
I recently met a gentleman named David Havasi while charging our Tesla Model 3 at a ChargePoint station at a Whole Foods I frequently visit. He recognized me from CleanTechnica and I quickly learned he worked at Tesla for 7 years, until just recently. We got talking, talking, talking, and talking. I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!
