So, we're slowly recovering from the recent TESLIVE event that took place in Northern California, this past July 12-14th. If you hadn't heard about it, TESLIVE was the first-annual conference and expo designed to provide Tesla Motors Club members and Tesla enthusiasts a place to come together and celebrate Tesla.
TESLIVE was set up by Tesla Motors Club (TMC) as a grassroots event with a limited attendance of 300 participants. From our perspective, we were proud to be a founding sponsor/exhibitor at this milestone event. Best of all, it gave us a chance to meet so many of our CCI customers in-person. A big thank you to Nathan Leggatt, a Model S/CCI owner who also does our web work, and, David Wexler (one of our very first customers) for allowing us to use his Model S as our "model" at the show. David's car was even featured in the media (with his famous license plate) -- if you check this link below you'll see a video clip on the bottom left that features David's Model S and has his Custom CCI also showcased inside:
From receiving an amazing Tesla factory tour to seeing Elon's heartfelt speech, it was quite a weekend. We felt so fortunate to be part of it. We met so many Model S owners who are also enjoying their Center Console Insert (CCI) as part of their Model S driving experience. We were also thrilled to hear such a positive response from those who saw it in-person for the first time. And, we were so pleased to see the response to the newest member of our CCI family, the Basic CCI, which was just released in time for the Teslive event. Many of the attendees were happy check out this new, lower-priced model that stays true to our signature quality craftsmanship. You can check out more information about the Basic CCI model here:
Big thanks to Al & Ed's Autosound - West Hollywood for featuring the CCI in owner Elie's new Model S at his booth. The CCI was also featured in Dr. Taras' famous "Tesla the Hun" reincarnation. If you're in the LA area, please check out A+E. After TESLIVE, we stopped by the A+E shop in WeHo and the garage is filled with Teslas!
All in all, the TESLIVE event was an amazing experience and we are already looking forward to next year's event! Check out our photos from the event.
