It seems Tesla has been busy rewarding some lucky people lately. After all, they are inviting 12 Golden Ticket winners to attend one of the biggest events in the company. And because the grand opening of its Gigafactory is such a big deal, Tesla is wiling to give the winner an all-expense paid trip.
If you happen to have reserved a Model 3 and be one of the winners, you may have already received an email from the address firstname.lastname@example.org. We guarantee that it’s not a spoof or a scam. You really did win something, an opportunity to witness the grand opening of first phase of Tesla’s biggest production facility yet.
According to a recent report from Electrek, Tesla has been choosing its Golden Ticket winners by random. They probably chose to do it this way not because they’re feeling lazy. Rather, it’s perhaps the best way to pick the winners from a wide pool of approximately 150,000 Model 3 reservation holders.
The Gigafactory Grand Opening will take place on July 29 in Tesla’s huge facility in Reno, Nevada. According to a report sent by Jack Cookson from BuildZoom to Morning News USA, the construction of the factory began back on April 2014. The facility is massive, measuring 5.8 million square feet. The estimated cost of construction permitted has cost Tesla $322.6 million so far.
For the grand event, Tesla is willing to provide all Golden Ticket winners a roundtrip economy class airfare along with free transportation and accommodations. Winners are asked to contact Tesla’s Golden Ticket team for further details in redeeming their prize.
Meanwhile, if you won and you think you won’t be able to make it, that’s too bad. Tesla said, “Tickets are non-transferrable.”
