  7. "Not doing business properly"...

[YesAuto Auto Trends] On July 29th, local time in the United States, the official website of the electric car brand Tesla launched a new product-Tesla surfboard. The official price of the surfboard is 1,500 US dollars, which is about 10,200 yuan, and it is limited to 200 pieces.

According to the description of the official website, this surfboard is a collaboration between Tesla Design Studio, the well-known surfboard brand Lost Surfboards, and Matt Mayhem Biolos, who designs surfboards for the champion athletes of the World Surfing League. It is limited to 200 pieces, all of which are custom produced. And will ship to buyers within 2-10 weeks.

The surfboard is made of carbon fiber, and the appearance is the same as that of Tesla's vehicles with high-quality matte and glossy finishes. In the product description, Tesla officially stated that this surfboard can be placed in the back row or storage box of Model S, Model X and Model 3.

It's not a day or two for Tesla founder Elon Musk to “do nothing in his business”. In addition to selling cars, his boring company has also sold hats and even flamethrowers, and each time the sales are good. The surfboard was sold out only one weekend after it went online, and the product page on the official website is no longer valid. However, the resale information of Tesla surfboards has appeared on the eBay website, and the list price is mostly between 3000-4000 US dollars, which is more than twice the offer price.

According to data from research institutions, as of the last quarter, Tesla’s free cash flow has experienced negative growth for five consecutive quarters. During the 12-month period from the end of 2016 to the end of 2017, Tesla’s negative cash flow per quarter was at least There are 500 million dollars. Today, Tesla's official website has many brand peripheral products including clothing, mobile phone cases, children's toys, etc. This seems to be a way for Tesla to relieve economic pressure.
