  • I am not a Tesla fan. However, to call him remarkable is the under statement of the year. Of note. If it wasn't for Europe Tesla would be a failure. EU put a HUGE tax on ICE vehicles which made Tesla Cars the perfect solution. In other words, Tesla was Subsidized by the EU. Today, the Model 3 is a Great car. However, the winners of the Solar race have developed a really unique electric. They are based in EU. I believe it isn't simply competition. I believe it is potentially a Game changer. Hopefully it will make it to market. Top selling American cars (excluding Tesla) is no big deal. USA vehicles are CRAP. That is why Chrysler is not doing well and will be shut down. Also why US cars are not exported except for niche markets. That is why Toyota, Honda, Subaru, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen export so successfully as opposed to USA Crud. What can be a game changer is if Graphene batteries make it to the market in large volume. Then anything is possible.

Plus the loss of JBS oh and the predicting of no profits for yet another year, the writing off of S&X by Elon, collapsing trade in’s (34% at 3 years), worsening service, dreadful treatment of customers on warranty issues (like the yellow screen edge). EVs are the future, Tesla will be a side note in history.

How come the rocket that released the Car just fell back to earth but the car floated away without dropping....gullible or What ???.....and that means the information release from many scientists AND THE NASHOLES too , about the discovery that Earths atmoshere EXTENDS beyond the MOON has also destroyed Elons car scam.....Do you understand the enormousness of this release....I don't think so.....So if Earths atmosphere extends to the Moon and perhaps beyond, then there can be NO MAGIC FLOATY PLACE.....Everything FALLS BACK TO EARTH....NO Satellites....NO toy space station....NO MOON flights or landings....Stupidity is never choose to be another victim all by your silly you have a choice to make.....stay in your imaginary world OR get serious to those who find you such an easy target to fool.

  • That's Elon musk, News companies whom support fossil fuel mafia tells trash about Tesla, for telling trash they are getting huge funds from huge companies. Take examples from other companies whom make worst petrol or Diesel cars. I am not a Tesla fan boy, I both like and hate Tesla in some cases. Tesla changed the industry and gave the world great Ideas. A 15 year old tech company makes the best electric cars in the world. Save the World from fossil fuel Mafia. News channels are bullishit because they support certain political Parties and Mafia Companies whom fund them. We had seen this News Channel bullishits in Kerala. Before 10 to 15 years my state had awesome climate compared to some European countries, now we have hot climate because of deforestation and increased use of fossil fuel cars. When I was a child their wasn't a lot of Cars in my state, I had seen old Ambassador cars, H. M Condessa, PAL, MARUTY 800 etc were the popular cars. We had the climate which was awesome and I had seen hailstones falling from the sky, the good old clear fluffy clouds cold air which were blessing for the nose and the Lungs and had no diseases. Now cities and populated areas are of fossil emissions. This is all because of fossil fuels and deforestation. In my country some states have smogs and fogs due to this emissions and factory pollution , large traffic block over 3 or more hours etc, breathing air in some cities is equalent of smoking 100 cigarette per day. Some marble monuments are turning from white to yellow due to acid rain. We are effected by this fossil fuel mafia and I know the consequences. People its time to change. I am explaining this painfull experience from my heart.

  • Tesla cars are not cheap. Even a lowest priced Tesla Model 3 will cost you $44,000 out the door. Tesla cars are not for the masses yet. Average American household income is about $57,000 in 2019. So, an average American has wait another 4-5 years for Tesla Model 3 until price drops to $25,000 out the door. Hope, Tesla succeed in the future.

  • Teslas are brilliant cars, but the post purchase customer service is a bloody disaster, unless they sort this part of the chain out there is no motivation for fleet purchasers to start looking at Tesla as viable manufacturer. I love the idea of what Tesla are trying to do but if you cannot repair the cars in a reasonable time (two months to replace a door handle on my bosses model S) then the majority of ordinary people are not going to replace their internal combustion cars. When you're spending 40k on a car customer service in terms of after sales care is an important consideration and its why for all the Tesla is a better looking car and a lot more advanced, I've ordered a BMW I3s, simply because if it goes wrong I can take it to where I bought it 20 miles away, be given a courtesy car in the spot and have my car fixed in a couple of days.

  • I don’t disagree that electric car transport for the future can be looked at as better but the achilles heal of the whole thing is the fact we’re still using inefficient/toxic battery’s. Battery’s are not the way to save the planet. People generally only want to own a car for a coupe of years and then change it, buy buying something like a Tesla for this amount of time instead of a new/used petrol car does not mean that person is in any real way saving the planet. Also with nuclear power stations not being built and others being closed down our future demand (and due the limitations of renewable electricity generation) will mean we will not have clean energy to even charge these cars or run the country cleanly.

  • The harm to the environment of Electric vehicles and all electronics is the mining of materials. Typically, of all the material removed from the mine, those rare earths amounted to 0.2 percent of what gets pulled out of the ground. The other 99.8 percent-now contaminated with toxic chemicals-is dumped back into the environment. That damage is difficult to quantify, just like the impact of oil drilling. Your electric car doesn't need gas, but it still might get its energy from burning carbon of some kind. Most electrics don’t even look that much better than a traditional vehicle in terms of greenhouse gases. Now comes the cost of maintenance of the high-tech vehicle electric and ICE. The sensor count is so high that the cost of repair sky rockets after a couple of years of use. To most owners, these products are throw always for the remaining life-cycle of the product which eventually ends up in the toxic waste fields around the world.

  • We will see if they can survive the next recession. The fact is NOBODY is making money on electric car. Even Tesla is losing BILLIONS while sales are good. It is TOTALLY impractical to buy a $70,000 or more car with a LIMITED range and an HOUR at minimum to recharge it. Every 200-250 miles you will have to stop at a super charger for an hour on a long trip. That range is cut in half when the weather is cold and those batteries are damn expensive to replace. These are totally IMPRACTICAL for the money.

They are in the a very heavy cash flow position that constantly needs feeding. Should this need ever run out the company no doubt would be done. What Elon needs now is a room full of the best Minds in finance that came keep backflow coming. The stock price has not been cut in half in the last 6 months because of the short sellers. The company has an insatiable demand for short term cash. Luckily, the country delivers right now just that. Now I feel on could just back off talking about short sellers.. I don't care what you call Le Model S except it stinks. Why would they hinge their future on such a car based on a golf cart chassis?

  • 9.50 "I have no position in Tesla except I own their cars and I want them to succeed."Give me a break. Newsflash if you have a coal fired power station producing the electricity to recharge a tesla you are not causing less pollution. You gotta love people that ignore physics. You can't make energy you can only convert it. If you recharge at night you sure as hell are not using solar power to do it. If you recharge on a calm night you're not using wind produced power to do it. Nuclear power stations evidently are are no no because they're too dangerous. That leaves hydro power not many hydro power stations in the scheme of things. If you want to drive a Tesla and you can afford it ,great. But can we please stop the bullshit that it is actually saving the environment. At the moment it ain't.

  • Musk and Tesla have actually received mostly fawning press. The consumer ratings on their products in the early days were outright BS designed to put them in the most positive light possible. Federal and State governments also put their thumbs on the scale for Tesla at taxpayer expense. The bottom line on EV's is if you don't believe the hype about AGW there is no reason to buy them. Limited range and excessive waiting for charge up are 2 major hurdles. They are also too expensive. Tesla also bullshits the public about lacking a dealer network. They pitch it as an advantage when in reality it is not. There is no way an auto company can sustain growth having no decent repair and supply network. Flying techs in is not the answer. The lack of charging stations is another limiting factor. EV's should be forced to compete on an equal footing with IC cars. Politicians should not be forcing taxpayers to subsidize the toys or rich people.

It's a dark grim theory to bring about the point that people spend too much time doing bad things. We should all be helping companies like Tesla that want to improve the planet as part of the end game, doing anything but that is sabotage to our entire race and should be punished...maybe not by death but by silencing idiots (taking away their freedom to release trash out their mouths).

  • In my observation most of the people who criticize Tesla today are doing so is in reaction to the fanatics who give Tesla a pass for QC issues that they would be very critical of in say an i-Pace. Tesla has done some great things and I hope they succeed but some of the stats presented are misleading. The Model 3 doesn't compete with the 5 series or E class. The EPA puts it into the same category due the the weight of the Model's a porker like all EVs and weight as much as larger ICE vehicles. Also, is the volume of Model 3s delivered representative of actual demand or are they trying to catch up on the years of waiting customers...I hope the volume keeps up but we shall see.

The auto industry itself is gunning for Tesla, and have numerous resources to marshal against it. Don't forget the industry succeeded in bribing many state governments to make Tesla sales illegal.

  • You forgot how Tesla is making most of it's money selling clean energy credits than cars. From the WSJ - "Nov 5, 2018 - Tesla's record quarter doesn't look as good as its earnings release ... the biggest boost to profits came from the sale of government credits. ... Tesla earns by producing clean energy products like electric cars ... to do what it has needed to do all year-raise money by selling stock." It also is losing its large government subsidies just as several huge competitors enter the market. Porsche Taycan has pre-sold over 20,000 and is increasing it's production. They'll also have a nice $7000 government subsidy. ;-). Lastly, companies are designed to make money and not keep losing money in the long term like the failed dot.coms. Even Amazon, finally started making a profit after years of negative income. Just watch the other bubbles ready to implode like the electric scooters coming soon. Good news is that Tesla did change the world even when it gets beaten by automakers that guess what - make money for their shareholders with profits and note hopes and dreams.
