    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You misunderstood it. Read the post I replied to or the HLDI reports.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I did some further research on this. I can clearly see trends with specific vehicle types which makes me believe the "car burnt with house" cases are underrepresented. Also HLDI trusts this data for their research. It is very unlikely that the houses of Tesla dual motor owners burn down more...

    Model S & X dual motor noncrash fire claims

    I have found some noteworthy trends in the comprehensive noncrash fire claims from Highway Loss Data Institute. They request this data from insurance companies every year and send it to NHTSA. They are also evaluating how effective a recall was based on this data. Here is the source of the...

    I'm aware of the neural networks. I just disagree with the path Elon chose. I have already quoted this article here: Tesla has a self-driving strategy other companies abandoned years ago and this is why I disagree with him. Are you ok to take the risk? The difficult part comes now. When the...

    Good thing there were no human involved accidents reported this weekend. That doesn't mean it is safe. // I saw 4 fender benders. The way I think it can be dangerous specially for kids and bicyclists is that it has a hard time checking objects in the 10 and 2 o'clock directions. It is also...

    Nope. I don't want it to fail. I want EVs on the road and it's a great thing Tesla kicked the butt of everyone. But I want them to change couple of things though. Elon should stop behaving like a kid. He should stop claiming unproven or incorrect things about the car. He should stop false...

    Let's get real. Does this say anything about the number of errors this 'smart' summon has made? Nope. How many of those 550k tests had hits, near hits, driving towards a pedestrian, driving over curb, holding up people, confusing traffic, incomplete mission? NO BETA VERSIONS ON THE ROAD! OK?

    The 'silver' cars are not painted. Body and plastics are painted separately.

    To me the number of failures per cars with V10 is already too high. And I don't have exact statistics for this. You can hide behind this sentence and bury your head in the sand. Reasonable guesses however can be made based on the videos and reports.

    This is why statistics are good. They average out those "car burnt with house" cases. Or do Tesla S and X owners have higher rate of house fires than other owners? Additionally we can look up many of these cases in the news and can check where the fire came from.

    anecdotal = (of an account) not necessarily true or reliable, because based on personal accounts rather than facts or research. there are too many "smart" summon videos out there which show the same behavior. Calling them all fake is your blindness.

    There is some truth to the Tesla fires regarding S and X. Model 3 seems to have no such problem. Look at IIHS's non-crash related fire incident report: by category: - In the SUV category only the Jeep Renegade is worse than X and Tesla S and X are "leading" in the luxury category. by all...

    You are complaining about something which is good for Tesla. They don't spend money on marketing, but they managed to be in the news all the time. These news are the reason why the brand name got such a high valuation.

    Ok. I like this definition. However EV space is small and new, they write about every little thing.
