Using google translation, the article says there is no plan by BMW to buy parts from Tesla, and that the mention of such a negotiation met BMW with bafflement. Original article: http://www.hegnar.no/motor/artikkel527628.ece Is there anyone from Norway who could help asses the reliability of the publication itself, and perhaps point out if there was any mistranslation? From the article (again using google translate): "Elon Musk said in an interview that Tesla is in talks with BMW about a collaboration on battery technology and charging stations. The statement evokes amazement in Munich." "...Well-informed sources say BMW, according to the German online magazine that in this industry speaks practically everyone with everyone, so "informal discussions" with Tesla mean little. " Another question, is if this is true, what exactly is going on here? are BMW getting cold feet? or was there misunderstanding from the beginning on the part of Tesla about the intentions of BMW?
