Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Address to Detroit Automakers | CoolCarsReady.com
Great speech. I hope it makes a difference.
From the article:
They keep using outdated specs...
saying 130MPH, actual 125MPH
saying 250miles per charge, but actually 244 (had fallen to 220 until DT1.5 improved it again)
saying $98,000 but now $109,000+ (for new orders)
saying $50,000 estimate for Sedan but now $60,000+
I know the numbers being used aren't too far off from reality, and really they are just using old numbers, but still, slightly inflated specs cause people to wonder what else being said might be inaccurate.
And what was this weird paragraph after they quoted his speech?:
Yes, I was wondering if his numbers he stated were based upon the numbers that were accurate when he bought his. It was probably what he was told at the time, and he hasn't gone back for an update.
To be fair, that's Ahnold's mistake, not Tesla's. I appreciate his enthusiasm, though.
Yeah, no idea. I figured it was some kind of commercial. Probably a better transcript will turn up. I found the thing to be a great read. You can really hear his voice in it. "Let me tell you something..."
Good speech Arnold,
Talk about old Data, why not say that you have purchased one and that it has been delivered by now.
I actually like the fact that he is touting A CAR rather than MY CAR. I think it says more for the car that way and sounds less like look what I bought.
OK that's a valid response. But if he says he bought one, he shows he is putting his own money where his mouth is.
Heard this on the radio almost a month ago, but recently came across this vid and thought it relevant to this thread.
