Executive Summary

The relationship between the oil industry and the car industry is currently a very tight one and the analysts are predicting that in 15-20 years the oil resources will dry out, meaning that both the industries will fall. The project’s purpose is to see in which ways Tesla can increase their demand and analysis of the EV market and their portfolio. The research question represents a narrowing of the project’s purpose, a narrowing with the target locked on demand and market attractiveness. The first step in improving the company’s status is to make an internal analysis and see which are the production flaws and their core competencies. In order to see which is Tesla’s SBU and how it performs, a portfolio analysis is covering a presentation of the three car models that Tesla has. The external analysis starts with defining the market. This step will help us get the big picture regarding the market and where is our place in the current market. The environmental factors can also define the market we are competing in, so that’s why we integrated them in our agenda, next to the market description. The competitor analysis can be achieved through one single model, Porter’s 5 Forces. Through this, we are covering everything that is related to the market, presently speaking. The end of the whole market-line is represented by the customer and their buying behavior must be put through a filter in order to see how the demand will look from now on and how did it look years ago. All the models used are bringing out the positive and negative aspects of the company and in the end the negative ones deserve to be mentioned because it will be a start with the improvement, one’s end is another one’s beginning.

We know that Tesla Motors are present in Denmark since July 1st, 2010 and not many people in Denmark know Tesla as a luxury electric car. Our project seeks to understand the Danish market behavior regarding the assumption that electric and luxury cars may represent the best replacement for the petrol-based cars by increase consumer demand 20% in 2015. The eco-friendly concept that Tesla promotes had a peculiar effect on our attention, making us eager to find out more about them. Also, getting information about Tesla means getting information about the future and this represents a big plus in our learning process. We also create a survey to asked 60 people who live in Denmark consist of 30 males and 30 female in difference status and income.
