    I guess that would explain all the crash-tested Model III bodies.

    Tesla loses money on every car that rolls off the assembly line which means over $4 per stock share and that's with massive federal subsidies.

    Elon Nusk and investees are not stupid. There is obviously a plan involved or Tesla would not exist. I will beg this zffirdible car with solid range is a major first step to true solvency for the car company.

    We got a Model S about a year ago, and have already put twenty-something thousand miles on it. No issues at all. A fun car to drive. Trouble free. We get approx. 260 miles to a charge. People charge these cars at home, or at a whole lot of supercharging stations all over the place (for free). Takes about an hour. Usually there are restaurants and coffee shops all around for you to use while your car charges. There are usually a dozen slots, and other Teslas being charged. Owners sometimes chat it up with each other. The photo above, in Fremont, CA where they build these cars, was originally the General Motors plant, going back to the 50's. Amazing to have toured it once as a kid where I saw them building GM cars......and then to go back last year and see them building Teslas there. One of the cleanest factories you can ever imagine. You could eat off the floors, practically.

    We see these cars all over now, every single day. I'm told there are so many charging stations, you could head from CA to NY (driving cross-country) and just stop at charging stations along the way. No gasoline bills!

    Super Cool, especially after watching an episode of Shark Tank about a car that runs not by electricity but by compressed air.

    Released in India.
    People seeking money from the sharks wanted to build a factory in HI.

    The sharks rejected because it wasn't a nation-wide deal.

    What happens when a bunch of over-paid hyper-entitled EV drivers have to share charging stations?
