Tesla sells more than just cars - Business Insider

As Tesla announces new, sometimes limited-edition 'lifestyle' products, like the wireless phone charger it unveiled on Tuesday, it's become clear that the electric car company is hoping to make some additional revenue through the brand itself.
Earlier this summer, Tesla released 200 limited-edition surfboards, priced at $1,500, which sold out in just one day. The carbon fiber surfboards featured the same paint used on Tesla's cars, in a similar livery. The wireless chargers sold out within a day as well, and Tesla said they use "the same design language used in our energy products, like Powerwall."
Whether you think of it as "brand leveraging," or just old-fashioned merchandising, the fact is that Tesla is lucky enough to have customers who like the company so much they're eager to buy any number of widgets with its name on it.
