Since Tesla doesn’t work with dealerships, you won’t have to worry about an interest rate markup if you decide to finance directly with the company. But you might still want to compare your other car loan options from third-party lenders to ensure you’re getting the best deal available to you.
If you’re looking to finance a car directly through Tesla’s in-house financing division, you won’t have to worry about dealership markup since it’s a direct-to-consumer car brand. You actually have to order your car on Tesla’s website before you can even apply for financing. Then within one month of your car’s delivery date, you can fill out a Tesla Financing application through your online account.
Since you have to wait anyway, you might want to take the time to compare car loans from banks, credit unions and online lenders as well. Prequalifying with a few different lenders can help you find the most competitive rate available to you. Tesla Financing may even be willing to beat the lowest rate you qualify for with a third-party lender.
