    @sean, and how is that funny Sean? Like tech01x said Top Gear fed you that lie and you repeated it, and all you had to say is that "Tesla had to pay the legal costs".

    There are many many on SA who dismiss "good" research for out and out lies, misinformation and often just BS presented by the "bear" case as fact.

    And you laugh? That is so incongruent with your trying to be a credible author!

    Not to mention why are you using the Roadster as a test case when you have ample, ample, tests from real reviewers like Consumer Reports, on the REAL vehicle of which your article purports to be making an investment case for - The Model S?

    It's the monster we allowed to grow under the bed - auto dealerships.

  • Something You Never Hear About Tesla [View article]
    Yep, I thought about that long and hard. If push came to shove it seems like the whole relevance of dealerships can be challenged in court based upon this assumption. Dealers would be hard pressed, other than recalls, to make an argument re this alleged "protection" in todays world.

    It would be interesting to hear a few lawyers chime in, the lawyer-investor voice has been conspicuously silent on this whole issue.

    Of course, Tesla would be hard pressed to reallocate $$$ towards a lawsuit against effectively the oil industry. But if this one is a slam dunk based upon protectionism and monopoly"ism" you'd think the payoff for a pro bono case, not to mention press coverage as marketing, would be well worth it.

    thanks cmnsnse,

    You've exposed the one viable argument against the lease model - resale of the home.

    The reality in the data is 1 out of 90 opt to not continue the lease. Of course, finding the buyer can still be an issue, but it's good to know that SC could uninstall. Interesting I wonder what the removal costs are including patching the roof?

    BTW, most negative on the "lease" fail to mention that the home owner "leases" in the sense that they pay for the energy at a 10-20% reduction over their utility, they are not leasing the solar system.

    Plus why would you replace a battery that still has a range of 171-211 miles (70%)? That's still better than the next best range EV, Toyota RAV4 at 107 miles.

    Oh, BTW, the RAV4 has a tesla drivetrain!

  • Tesla now +3.2% AH. Gigafactory aims to supply 500K vehicles. [View news story]
    Oh that's easy fgrindle,
    1) the other Manufacturers don't make battery packs with 265 mile range, and
    2) BMW's 2014 models are hybrids not EV's.
    3) Also, Tesla's closest competition, range-wise not vehicle to vehicle, all have Tesla Battery packs.
    Therefore, the other manufacturers don't need to worry about battery availability and costs because they don't have the range and those that come in a distant second use Tesla battery packs.

    Last I checked the closest thing to Tesla's range is the ... ready for this ... Tesla battery pack equipped Toyota RAV4! Go figure.

    I assume that the Mercedes B-Class will have similar range to the RAV4, after all, it also has a Tesla battery pack.

    Here's 3rd and 4th place: "The Spark EV's 82-mile range matches that of the 2013 Honda Fit EV, but isn't as high as that of the 2013 Fiat 500e (87 miles) or the 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV (103 miles)."

    As a corollary, If the current deposit structure ensues, then sometime in 2015 Tesla will have a new revenue stream from Gen III deposits to bear on those new factories, eh?

    I am one of those Prius owners eagerly awaiting to put a deposit down on Gen III, I will have 300,000 miles on my Prius in 2016, FYI a new Prius plug-in with the Advanced package will run about $35-40K.
