Tesla used to just sell one model at a time. At first, it was the Roadster, and then Tesla discontinued it and was only selling the Model S.

However, in the span of just four years, Tesla went from selling only a single model to four: Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X.

What once was a small EV startup is becoming a full-fledged automaker with a decent number of options.

In order to help navigate those options, Tesla put a new chart together to help differentiate all the different features of all its vehicles.

The automaker sent the chart to its sales staff, and Electrek re-created it below:

Electrek’s Take

I feel like this is a chart to help Tesla sales staff upsell people interested in Model 3 and Model Y, but I thought it was useful enough to be worth sharing.

Upselling to Model S and Model X is going to be a tough job during the first half of the year, in my opinion.

We expect several improvements to those two vehicle programs during the second half of the year, and I don’t expect sales to pick up until then.
