  • 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.

  • Look Elon Musk is no doubt a genius. A genius is not often known for their fundamental Financial know how. No one hates Tesla or takes one thing away from them. 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. It is tough to back someone with a target painted on his chest.

    J SegalJ Segal20 gün önce
  • 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.

Your not burning gas you're burning coal. That smug and largely false statement is what turns a lot of people off. I like Teslas but to pretend (or being dishonest there aren't huge problems with sourcing (mining and refining) lithium and other components and disposal of electric cars and burning coal is dishonest. There hopefully be a time soon where that's not the case but it is now.

They are all about environmentalist hype and the initial sale but they have no idea how to support the sale after it happens. This will be their downfall. If another company can figure out how to implement a service and repair organization to support their expensive cars, they will kill Tesla.

  • Just don't get in a crash with these things. Tesla is not set up for parts or repair work. I had a "minor" accident with my 3 which looked like nothing more than quarter panel damage. Problem is the Tesla doesn't have quarter panels. The entire frame has to be cut in half and welded back together. 12 months and over $24,000 to repair a relatively minor dent. The other guy's insurance will pay and I get a BMW 5 series as a rental car but I wont have my Tesla back for a year. Tesla has no idea how to service their cars. They are clueless. Totally clueless. They are all about sales. No service whatsoever. Get one. Just don't crash it.

This will not be a good thing, but unless he gets his head out of his arse, it will most likely happen.

  • I do not believe there is a demand issue right NOW, but i do worry demand may be an issue in the future due to a few things; The minimalist nature Tesla's interior, the learning curve for consumers (even tho i think this isnt really an issue, more of a FUD situation), charging (having to have a garage to charge every night, etc, which can be overcome by other solutions as well). Charging on the road is no longer really an issue as Tesla is releasing 200kW charging, making charge times ~15-20 mins). The politicizing of EV's (there has been major progress on this issue because Tesla made EV's attractive, so you no longer have to be a tree hugger to own an EV, its actually becoming cool and desirable and this way of thinking has expanded into other competitors EV's as well) To want a Tesla, the consumer has to have an open mind, and not all consumer are like that. I feel the positives of owning a Tesla outweighs the negatives but i do think its enough to deter a number of consumer interest to effect overall demand. Ultimately, Tesla went way way farther than what i expected, esp what current battery tech allows. They have THE lowest $/kWh batteries which enables a good margin for Tesla products. Profit margins literally do not exist on lower cost EV's but Tesla's, they are going in the right direction. Once batteries can get below $100/kWh, profit margins will increase and prices will come down. Li-Ion can only achieve so much though. The next battery breakthrough is needed. Once a breakthrough/new chemical makeup/hybrid battery has been made, Tesla products and ALL EV's will become extremely desirable to almost everyone (Maxwell acquisition has alot to do with this) The battery tech we have today is not enough to make EV's mainstream just yet but looking at what has been achieved through Li-Ion alone, future battery tech well def be enough to essentially push all EV's into the mainstream with Tesla being in front (unless someone finds the next battery tech before them).

    • All major battery suppliers have some sort of closed loop recycling system in place. Traditional automaker as well. They all get their batteries from a handful of major battery suppliers such as LG Chem, Panasonic, NEC, Samsung SDI, etc. In fact, mining for chemicals used in batteries are more dangerous than end of life batteries so you did get that right. For example, BMW & Nissan use their near EOL battery packs for battery storage systems and get 10 more years of use, and that's just one example of reuse. Once batteries are done, all metals are broken down just to be reused again. Its all an advantage to these companies. These are multi million dollar companies we are talking about here. You have been highly misinformed about the recycling systems that have been in place for years.

    • it really depends on where you charge your car. Charging on a cleaner grid, the better. Charging on a dirtier grid, a plug in hybrid or hybrid is more cleaner than a large BEV. Worldwide grid continues to get cleaner over time. BTW all major EV battery suppliers have some sort of closed loop recycling system in place. I do like the points you brought up in your comment though. I do not necessarily believe they have a demand issue right now, but do worry it COULD in the future. Ultimately, to own a Tesla is to have a open mind, and i know some consumers are not ready to make that leap yet until driving an EV is just like driving a ICE vehicle, but better and cheaper up front cost. No compromises. Do i think we are getting there, yes and Tesla seems to be paving that path almost on its own but solutions will have continue to be made AND will need the next battery breakthrough to achieve mainstream status and continue un-interrupted demand. I believe Tesla will be the company to do it. Def will no be easy though.

Something on the order of 15% of people that put Deposits on Tesla vehicles actually buy them....and of course; of that must purchase (usually the most expensive versions) of whatever is in Stock. Tesla barely manages to assemble a few thousand to near 10,000 per month when the suppliers have been paid in advance. Can't stay in-business on those margins.....more so with a Plant that once produced 350,000+ Toyota units (left hand/right hand drive) under Japanese Management. Tesla has no future in the USA car market....with all the Major Players already in the process of offering much more affordable EVS now and in the future,Tesla does not have the Credit/Financial Resources to stay afloat. Big Players can afford the losses on EVs...because it bumps-up their CAFE numbers...they can still sell extremely profitable hydrocarbon-powered Crossovers/SUVs...........the vehicles most consumers want.

You need to pay much more to get the 0-60 MPH, not the 30+K price. 3- Shorting is done because they have low cash and oh 10 FRICKEN *BILLION* IN DEBT and not a single profitable year. (They have a new remedy --- they have been saying that for 10 years!! ) STYLE? NO PROFIT FOR 10 YEARS and *10 BILLION IN DEBT* ?! AND YOU COMPLAIN IT'S STYLE ?!?! SERIOUSLY?!

    • no Car Company is Perfect a Perfect Car Manufacture is an Oxymoron! and what does Ford stand for? (Fix Or Repair Daily) Most of Ford cars are built like crap except for the Truck! Tesla was among the top selling cars in the US in 2018! that says a lot! What did American Auto Makers Due in the Past Let People Die in their cars because it was cheaper to pay a Death Benefit that recall their cars! that Speaks Volumes! Also Telsa in the only car company in the US that's assembled in the US! yes I know Panasonic makes thier battery's, with that said Tesal have the largest Lithium battery Factory in the World in Nevada! it's a 50Gwatt Factory!

  • agree that its very amazing what he has done, I just would never buy one, as well as I would never let a car self drive but third I hate their interiors.

    • I understand the hate for the interior, but you don't ever need to let the car self drive... its optional. Automakers are starting to make early self driving tech standard in their cars (adaptive cruise, lane keeping assist, etc.). Are you just gonna completely stop buying cars in general?

  • Tesla certainly has done a great job promoting and pushing EV technologies. There is no doubt about that. One thing to keep in mind is coverage ratio is very important. You can have tons of debt and still be fine as long as you can service the payments. While comparing sales data is important but higher number of vehicle sold doesn't necessary make it a profitable business. Tesla's survival is depending on how they answer financially when EV competition heats up.

  • Ford and Chevrolet send their planned obsolescence to Mexico to be made! Then beer drinking mindless Americans think they are buying an American Truck when these Communist Companies sent our American jobs to Mexico!! Toyota and Honda are being built by Americans! Japan was nice to give the American worker jobs. While Ford and Chevrolet screwed the American worker. Which makes tesla the most American car manufacturers in this country. Chrysler it's so poorly made and they do not stand behind their product once you buy it. Chevrolet and Ford are traitors and should be hung for outsourcing our jobs and ripping off the American society by making garbage cars that fall apart. I had a 66 Ford mustang and it was such a piece of junk that it taught me how to be a mechanic because it broke so frequently!!! I had less problems with my 1976. 131 Fiat.

  • Is Tesla doomed? Yes, but not until the Faithful of the Congregation of Tesla Shareholders withhold their tithes and offerings at the Sacrament of the Secondary Share Offering and at charity fundraisers selling Tesla-branded knickknacks and non-refundable deposits on Tesla products which will not be delivered for years, if ever.

  • "Betting against entrepreneurs who ehange the world has never been a profitable endeavour" Well, in retrospect, it may have been good to have invested with those who did. But it's hard to know who of those wooing you for your Investment will change the world next. Several examples: The car and the airplane have changed the world. However many car manufacturers in the late 1800s and early 1900s lost out and went bankrupt. The airline business has seen enormous losses and failures. And look at the Internet boom and bust after 2000: Many of the companies that laid the groundwork for today's internet went bust. That is why Warren Buffet says that the most important aspect of earning money is not losing any - and why he avoids high tech stocks as as long as he can't tell the company has a reasonably secure market position. It made him miss out on some huge growth stories - but also on many more financial desasters. Interestingly, the enthusiastic financial analyst is standing beside a Tesla stock quote that is about 30% above today's stock price. I'm not saying that this proves him wrong - it just suggests that this interview is a few weeks old by now.

  • They are upset that he doesn't want to be a part of the deep states club. They are upset that when GM killed the EV1, that some smart startup was able to make EV work, meaning their buddies in the fuel oil and fossil fuel maintenance business are loosing money because an EV doesn't need oil changes and brake fluid or new spark plugs, etc. I love Elon Musk for how he is making their model of business irrelevant.

WHY .. the FUD is getting better and its becoming harder to find the truth in the news . 2ed its just to much drama . i am a fan of tesla but i am not a fan of drama and its really hard to own a car that comes with so much FUD and drama that really comes from the every day person . this was hard back in the day with the chevy volt . they want to kill the EV so bad there tuning the every day person on us , and i just cant spend every day of my life dealing it all , i am sure this is turning many away from EVs

    • @deepwaterbob They're not losing. They are on an upwards trend concerning year to year car sales. That's what start ups do, they reinvest money into more production capital.

    • @deepwaterbob They're still investing for the future, therefore, continual losses. Kinda like other great companies B4 them. The fact that they make more electric cars than all other companies _combined_ is what is exciting (and this, just the BEGINNING).

      fireofenergyfireofenergy22 gün önce
    • @deepwaterbob Perfection is the enemy of good enough. Tesla is still perfecting batteries (that were invented by a guy named John Goodenough) by acquiring Maxwell technologies, and investing OPM. Soon, batteries will power the world... and provide the solar energy to recycle themselves. I know, it's a tall order.

  • The sad thing is the average American living paycheck to paycheck can not afford one however they claim eventually if they keep making them they will figure out ways to make them more affordable. I also wonder what happens in ten years when all these cars batteries start shitting the bed and a replacement battery cost more than the car is worth?

  • Not a hater of the tech, I'd love to see electric become truly mainstream, the car is certainly an impressive thing, performance, battery life, appearance, etc. but I've repeatedly seen many reports of questionable quality. My concerns with this company are not the new vehicles themselves however, rather the used end of their cars which will quickly start growing. By monopolizing all repairs, parts, even paint and body, there is no way anyone will pay the price to own a used vehicle. It put insurance costs in the range of super high-end automobiles. Even if the car price comes down, the cost to insure never will if this doesn't change. Another concern is Musk himself, smoking blunts on JR podcast, sending out tweets regarding private buyback which was a complete fabrication, and other instances. He's just unstable. A CIO of a truly great company cannot act this way. It may be many years, but he will be his own downfall. Most have likely seen Rich Rebuild's channel. He actually loves the technology (he must for what he's put up with), but the way he has been treated trying to repair used/salvages is ridiculous. When I see things like it took him 3 MONTHS to take delivery of a "certified" used vehicle directly from their website, I see horrible management and a company unequipped to handle the volume they are trying to get to. It will catch up with them.
