People who don't want to hear, aren't going to hear anyway, and whatever is said will be spun as desperation tactics. The only thing Tesla can do is to keep executing. It's painful right now for investors, but it was more painful when it was $180. All they are doing is winding the spring.
My guess is very few. I can recall how quickly the pre-WWII style cars (tall and narrow) went after the 1950's style cars (short and wide) arrived. You looked at the older cars and thought "Oh, old car". Now it will be "Oh, old truck".
Yes, there will be the killer robot headlines just as there were the person dies with seatbelt fastened, or person saved because of no seatbelt. They will all disappear over time as people learn (slowly) that FSD saves lives.
It might also be someone who just doesn't want to worry about door dings or keeping the vehicle polished--or wants to have one of those electric ATVs. There's lots of valid reasons other than towing or hauling gardening or construction materials.
The problem here is that it takes a bit of time to become used to FSD and how it works. I suspect a number of people will get the subscription, really hate the first two weeks, and then cancel it never to get it again.
That's true if you're a believer in the Banana Republic system of government where there are a few rich families and everyone else is dirt poor and have to take any job they are offered regardless of health hazards that job may entail just to be able to eat today. This is what not having a...
Correct. The beetles in the pudding here in Texas is that the methane could be burned immediately but that looks scary to people so many cities have banned it. Because the oil companies don't want the methane, they just release it into the air--often near schools and residential areas (Texas now...
True, but generally only if the spin-off company is losing money or the acquisition price is as high or higher than future potential income. Alternatively there could be some regulatory reason (e.g. They want to purchase X company but they can't without getting rid of Y company.) I don't believe...
The difference is that nuclear power always needs to be grid-tied. Solar can be residential or community based, so transmission lines aren't 100% necessary. Of course, the utilities will do their best to make sure they are grid-tied, but that's political not technical.
Isn't the average MPG based on the EPA numbers? If so, then 20 MPG is closer. And 20K a year isn't particularly high, although it's higher than "average" because there are many cars that are weekend driving only or very short commutes.
Texas will be on the list next year at either $100 or $200 depending on which bill gets passed. $100 is only a bit over what the average driver pays in gas tax so it's not the end of the world. $200 is punishment for EVs.
Generally when the buttons stop working, people purchase a new car rather than spend the money repairing them because repairs of buttons or switches always seems way too expensive for what they they are.
Not so strange. Wall Street has a history of rewarding companies the cut employment. Shutting down plants is one way of cutting employment. Doesn't do much for future viability, but Wall Street has never cared about that.
1. No. Others will have to help.
2. No. Legacy companies have too much debt, too much internal resistance, and the need to maintain dividends to keep investors invested. Even if Tesla gave them the technology, they wouldn't have the capital to use it as it was meant to be used.
3. We'll have to...
Then why is iOS much harder and less intuitive to use now? Some of that is replacing colours with shades of grey that aren't always apparent at a glance. But a lot of it is that it's now much harder to find what you want to do. (and yes, iOS isn't as bad as some others).
The issue with the 25 new EVs in four years is the internal resistance at Toyota to EVs. Unless they have an outside partner that's pro-EV I don't see it happening--at least not on a large scale. I doubt that they will partner with Tesla because the last partnership didn't pan out. My...
It doesn't take much weight to activate the sensor. A heavy bag of groceries will do it. If you also buckle the seatbelt, you can defeat the safety measures. There is no safety measure so foolproof that the Universe can't create a fool capable of defeating it.
