So, Tesla becomes the new Chevron/Texaco/gas station. Um, that seems like a good thing.Not sure how I feel about the supercharger opening up. Not super happy to have to compete for supercharging with people who bought cars, from the company started by Hitler and that gassed monkeys, just because they hate Teslas... But I guess it’s inline with Tesla’s long term goal and probably also has a lot of nice second order effects that will be hard to quantify. And I think we can try to read between the lines, maybe Tesla will greatly increase supercharger network buildout with their new supercharger factory in China, maybe 4680 will greatly decrease charging time, maybe this is the first step of making it easier for Tesla Destination chargers to be monitized etc.
Anyway I think it’s the right thing to do. It will complicate things and require some effort on the teams to deal with the new influx of customers, but in the long run will make the company stronger.
