    It's no wonder so many people are demanding refunds on their Model 3s (they never would have been built anyway).

    Wonder if tesla falls under the lemon law?
    Did read in a mag that tesla was having some quality control issues.

    Google "My ____________ car sucks" and you will get ten of those stupid youtubes. This one is just being used by someone wanting to dis the future cause they are backwards.

    Consumer Reports found ‘big flaws’ in Model 3



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The Swiss tio.ch reports that yet another Tesla burst into flames after crashing on the A2 highway near the town of Bellinzona, killing a 48-year-old German driver who was trapped inside.

    According to the Swiss publication, the driver, a 48-year-old German motorist from Baden-Wurtermberg, lost control of the vehicle a few meters after the Monte Ceneri tunnel, crashing into the central guardrail, an accident that was remarkably similar to an October 2017 crash in Austria, in which a Model S also burned down, however without any fatalities.

    I have no issue withTesla or electric car tech. I think it is interesting.  I do have issue with the fact that the taxpayers are pumping tens of billions of dollars into the companies doing the production. Especially Tesla.

    Why won’t Elon Musk just have one of the big car makers build his cars? Ego maybe?

    The batteries are extremely dangerous to anyone or anything around them if or when they get damaged. Its a fire that wont stop.

    My wife's best friend and her husband are Tesla nuts! He has the sedan , she has the top of the line SUV with gull wing doors. I don't get it.

    In my opinion pure electric cars will be a fast fashion trend.
    Hybrid will probably be the most reliable future. The oil companies will have time to convert their business, the car producers the same, etc.
    Anyway my congrats to Elon Musk, he understood that it would been a great business thanks to the politically correct nuts who believe that electricity grows on the trees.

    Well said!

    The thing is, hybrids are complicated, electric cars are pretty simple really. The only real hang up is the batteries. The technology has come a long way but, they have a lone way to go. I looked at a Tesla a couple years ago and the sales man said it used regular AA NiCad batteries, about a thousand of them, said they were grouped together for easy replacement if one failed. Not sure if that’s the case now though. Out of my price range. The new lithium batteries are dangerous, had a friend lose his hunt camp when his battery powered drill caught fire in the shed after he used it and plugged it in to charge.

    Ask him to let you drive one day, and I think you'll get it.  :)

    Who thinks electricity grows on trees?

    The facts remain that electric vehicles produce roughly 1/2 of what a normal vehicle produces TODAY.

    And, for what it's worth, I think electric and hybrid and full gasoline engines will all be around for the foreseeable future.

    It will probably take a quantum leap in battery technology or power generation to usher in the end of gasoline motors, and there are no such leaps on the horizon despite a huge amount of investment and R&D into the topic.

    Hope you are enjoying a glass of fine wine on your Friday night, Balla. :)  ....MIke

    Thanks Mike; dinner at home with pasta & mushrooms and more than a glass of fine wine (Sardinian Vermentino) ;)

    On topic: I think that many are really convinced that fully electric cars are at 0 pollution impact.
    Here in Italy, for instance, are the same guys against nuclear energy (the only source that keeps low the pollution for the electricity production).

    Anyway yes, the point are batteries, both for reliability and for pollution impacts. Unless the technology won’t be more safe, reliable and sustainable the future will remain gasoline.
    Unless they discover a cheap hydrogen production. In this case bye bye electric cars.

    Ever been to a battery plant, or and acid plant? most of those were run out of the country by the EPA, now they operate in countries like India, where there is little control over their manufacturing practices. I wish they were a clean alternative. Cars are definitely a lot cleaner now then they were, the rubber from the tires is probably the biggest polluter, and electric cars have rubber tires too.

    I have driven a Tesla s model. I have to admit it would put you back in the seat. Acceleration is unreal, but that’s the way electric motors work. 
     But even the owner admits it is just a toy, an expensive one at that.
