  • A Tesla Bull Suggests Hedging Long Positions Going Into Earnings [View article]
    There's another SA article that points to a couple of news reports that it was wiring. The pictures seem to support that view as the fire department clearly chopped into the sheetrock of the wall in front of the Model S. There was some discussion about the owner pulling his/her Lexus out of the garage, so stands to reason that the fire was located in the wall directly in front of the Model S, as opposed to in front of the Lexus.

  • Will Tesla Design New Vehicles In Time To Prevent More Devastating Battery Fires? [View article]
    Right on JRP3, and one can clearly see on the ground that the fire department put a pretty big hole in the wall, it appears that's what they are staring at as well.

    @true.north, so true! I just returned from a winter trip, 300 mile round trip San Jose to just above Cold Springs, in a rented gas guzzling full-size van no less. I passed at least 100 gas stations, but doing my pre-trip planning we only used one (1) gas station and that was in the foothills across from a Starbucks. Used 1/2 tank up 1/4 tank coming back.

    My point is too affirm true.north, "thousands of chargers, that makes no sense!", in fact we don't need 10,000 gas stations either.

    As a marketing event, I'm rather glad that Tesla chose the dead of winter to do the trip. Clearly weather is not an issue!

    Interesting to see if there is any spike in reservations and or stock movement monday 2/3.

    Right on, I forgot to mention that the Prius plug-in is the winner for commutes over 50 miles with no charging in between. I often forget that although I may be an average commuter for the bay area, I'm a mega-commuter compared to most USA cities.

    These young engineers and support staff are on an adventure, they are pumped up! This is no PR Stunt, this is tomorrows emerging leaders today making history. We don't need to armchair quarterback this thing, let these young leaders have their day in the sun/snow/sleet/rain ...

    It would be irresponsible for Musk to pull his kids out of school for a romp through winter snow storms "just because".

    It is a resume filler for engineers to volunteer (or voluntell) for a romp through winter snow storms have their names listed on a Guiness World Record. Even if the world is not watching it's still an exciting geeky project.

    @tom, wow, now I know you're not that dis-compassionate, the keyword there is "family"! Also, see Rik's post.

    Are you sure VH? The Prius plug-in just using the engine as a range extender, hybrid mode, moves the Prius to the 72MPG range. Far more than the Hybrid Accord.

    Here's CMAX vs Prius Plug-In

    @solucky, even though the Audi E-Tron Q8 is only rated at 370 miles and has a yet to be discovered battery technology, I say bring it on! The Model X, of course will beat it to market by what 2-3 years, so Teslas yet to be discovered new battery tech, may easily be 500 miles, ... I'm just saying if we're speculating you know!?

    I'm seriously glad that Audi/VW is thinking along these lines. Good for them!

    @tom ... your article does not support the idea of subsidies to Norwegians, unless you're talking the use of the bus lane, the article refers to ICE vehicles having a "super tax". Electrics vehicles don't have the additional tax, that's not exactly a subsidy.

    But you'd need way more data to suggest that all Norwegian electric vehicle owners use the bus lane.

    I don't see how the reference to the CCS or CHAdeMO helps your case? Albeit the adapter for the Model S is steep, TODAY, but that's more about supply and demand, once Europe gets to 20-40K Tesla's on the road the price will most likely go down.
    http://bit.ly/1jXd4lb

    But the possibility of Model S owners using an adapter to gain access to another network of charging stations just removes even more of the alleged and overblown "range anxiety".

    So instead of opting for a hybrid or a diesel "competitor", although even that's debatable, a potential buyer can go with the highly rated Model S and all its future cousins and now charge on any standard.

    I don't see the downside for Tesla Motors?

    @tippy, "... because the fat butt ...", actually the front end is wider than the rear end.

    And, I do the same thing, drive around for the perfect spot, and I only drive a lowly Prius!
