competition

    Is Tesla giving away its competitive edge with opening SCs?

    What do you think? Is Tesla giving away its competitive edge with opening SCs to other cars? I personally think that SC network is Tesla’s biggest benefit compared to other electric cars.

    another Tesla killer that doesn't quite live up to the initial hype

    Did you guys see the report volvo is recalling all 2200 polestar 2s delivered so far because they are shutting off even mid drive, I wonder if they'll get the same amount of negative press tesla would have if that happened. Just gonna say i love my 3.

    Will Apple enter the EV/smartcar market in some meaningful capacity?

    Okay folks, since some of you were challenging the premise of my first poll, claiming "neither" or "that Apple is irrelevant", I made a new poll to gauge the opinion of the wider TMC investor community. So everybody, please let's have a vote. If you vote "Yes" here, I ask that you then please...

    Tesla market share

    Does anybody have data on Tesla's market share in those areas where sales and distribution are not restricted? (In the San Francisco area, Tesla's are everywhere!)

    With version 9, how many years ahead is Tesla now?

    When I got my car in 2016, a S75D, I thought Tesla was at least two years ahead of competition in multiple fronts: battery, autopilot, technology (with over the air updates), even driving (I didn’t think Tesla was ahead in terms comfort or quality for a 82K car, but that is another story)...

    Tesla Competition: Culture Eats Strategy!

    The traditional automakers have decades of experience, incredible supply chains, vast dealer networks, and more. So does that mean that Tesla is doomed when the legacy automakers "wake up" and start making EVs? I don't think so, here's my reasoning, let me know if you agree or not. Tesla...

    Mood of an Unstoppable Transformation - CSM

    On the goal of "accelerating sustainable transport", are we (Tesla included) winning? I think we are. This article from the Christian Science Monitor I think is one of the better yet that sums up the very recent announcements by GM, Ford, MB, BMW, VW Group, and other majors to "electrify" or...

    Next generation 2170 cell battery packs

    Hear me out now. Apart from being cheaper to produce (/kWh) the new 2170 cells will allow for more capaciy in a given pack size. 40% more than the 2012 85kWh pack, according to JB Straubel. And that may well be without the extra utilization of 5mm head space through the longer cells. So, close...

    The (macro) economics of 276,000 Model 3s

    First off, congratulations to Elon and everyone at Tesla. Your amazing attention to quality, performance and safety has brought you to this point! I am stoked to be here too. No doubt the eyebrows have been raised, the jaws dropped, and bodies are beginning to get up from the floor - at the...

    Tesla's hidden treasure

    With a large fleet of autopilot/self driving cars on the road, Tesla may just created its most valuable resource yet-- road, traffic, driving data. If properly strategized and planned, this can be the most powerful weapon for Tesla to maintain its competitiveness. A good self driving...

    Audi Q7 - the Model X slayer?

    I found this cute article on Seeking Alpha: http://seekingalpha.com/article/2792435-will-audis-hybrid-q7-cause-teslas-model-x-backlog-to-evaporate It's paywalled, but you can read it through the time-honored dodge of disabling Javascript. In a nutshell: The Audi Q7 is a diesel PHEV that...

    UK EV Marathon - Any Tesla Model S Competitors?

    There is a marathon coming up October 8-9 in the UK's Cotswolds. Tesla was not mentioned in the article linked to below, but I think it would be a great opportunity for the Model S if one has not already been entered in the competition either by Tesla or an independent party. Link: Pure...

    Tesla Gigafactory

    Tesla is to have a big Gigafactory announcement sometime this week. I put all I could find about it, plus some location rumors (Nevada!) in a post on AutoblogGreen. So far, the only thread for the Gigafactory is one in Investor Discussions related, of course, to the investment opportunities...
