  • The Ramifications Of NHTSA's Decision On Tesla 1 comment
    Mar 30, 2014 12:24 PM | about stocks: TSLA

    Amazingly, after the recent NHTSA decision regarding Tesla's battery fires, everyone's only focused on whether or not Tesla's actions should be called a recall.

    But if you read the NHTSA's final report (, in the middle of their last paragraph: "ODI believes impacts with road debris are normal and foreseeable"

    Wait a minute!! Impacts with road debris are normal and foreseeable?! Are they implying that any vehicle should NOT catch on fire after impacting road debris?

    Does this mean that every ICE will need to have some sort of under vehicle armor kit installed now?

    That should balance the price differential between EV's vs. ICE's, as every new car will need to have some sort of road debris protection to prevent damage into the passenger cell, as well as any fuel lines.

    Disclosure: I am long TSLA.
