One question, how do you force a market when there is none ?
Max, there’s a market. You’re in LA, get your ass down to one off the show rooms and give it a test drive. Then you will understand why there is a market.
As matter of fact, in the thread I started in GAL, a regular member - I can’t remember his user name but he is a regular, was a skeptic at first, then after getting a test drive he went and bought stock![/quote]
An electric car that has very few charging stations, takes longer to charge than I want it to, and costs $60k for the low end model.
Edge, this is nothing more than a weekend toy for rich people who want to be nerdy and chic, while being silently dismissive towards everyone else.
Just wait til you see one of these Tesla owners sitting in LA traffic, watching their battery reserve sink faster than you can say “hope and change.”
Take a look at what happens when a Tesla was given the task of going from LA to Vegas (about 275 miles), not the wet dream it was cracked up to be. BTW, I did this same drive 2 weekends ago, in 4 hrs with $35 gas the whole trip.[/quote]
Right now it’s a town car. You would not buy a Tesla if you needed it for long road trips like going to Vegas. This is a car that sits in your garage overnight and wakes up to a full charge for getting you around LA all day. I lived in LA for 11 years and there was rarely a day I went more than 200 miles. On average I went about 250 miles in four days.
For right now it’s a town car but that will change in just a few years. They will extend the range, increase charging speed and build out the network of super-charging stations. Two years from now, that KBB guy would not have to settle for that ultra slow charger he used when he first got to Vegas. In two years that same trip will be a breeze, especially with no fluke nail in the tire incident.
