Tesla’s Website Ranks Second in Customer Satisfaction in J.D. Power Study


In the J.D. Power 2024 U.S. Manufacturer Website Evaluation Study, Tesla’s website has emerged as a standout performer, securing the second-highest satisfaction rating among premium manufacturers. This achievement underscores the growing importance of digital presence and user experience in the automotive industry, especially in the electric vehicle (EV) sector.

The study, based on responses from over 12,000 respondents, looks at customer satisfaction with automotive manufacturer websites during new vehicle shopping. It assesses aspects such as information/content, visual appeal, navigation, and speed. The findings of the Winter 2024 edition highlight a significant trend: manufacturers with a larger portfolio of electric vehicles tend to have higher website satisfaction ratings.

This is a notable shift from the previous edition in Summer 2023, where overall satisfaction with car manufacturer websites remained relatively flat.

Tesla, known for its innovative direct-to-consumer sales approach, scored 749, just two points behind the top-ranked Mercedes-Benz in the premium segment. This high ranking reflects Tesla’s effective digital strategy in showcasing its EVs. According to Eric McCready, director of digital solutions at J.D. Power, there was previously a challenge in presenting EV technological specifications in an accessible manner. However, manufacturers like Tesla have turned the tide, significantly enhancing the online EV shopping experience.
