  • Tesla Model S U.S. Sales: Peak Or No Peak  [View article]
    @ Sidd: Funny how the Tesla "bulls" writing articles on SA are really just bears.

    Model 3 delayed past 2019? Um, deliveries begin late next year for Model 3. Elon has re-iterated more than once over the past year they will be on time.

    @ dr. chub,

    You're being sarcastic, right? I certainly hope so.

    Um, the Bolt is not even in the same class as the Model 3, please don't compare them. What's funny is The Bolt has a higher starting price.

    Tesla is also spending massive amounts of money now to setup their success in the future. Across the world right now, they're opening service centers, building superchargers, investing in ridiculously sized gigafactories to ensure a battery cost advantage over everyone else. They just finished spending quite a bit of money last quarter tooling up/paying for equipment related to Model X.

    2016 should be a big year financially for Tesla. They're aspiring to be positive free cash flow in Q1 (per Elon in the last conference call), Q2 latest. Their CFO said during the last earnings call that they will be spending less in 2016 than in 2015. They're also going to be selling at least 50% more cars.

    Sure, place your bets. I think Tesla understands how important the Model 3 is for them.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if The Bolt's margins are stretched pretty thin. Tesla's margins are around 25%, and they're very serious of reaching 30% soon.

    Again, Tesla has repeatedly confirmed a 2017 launch, including 2 days ago.

    "driveable"? If you're referring to delays, Tesla just 2 days ago confirmed the Model 3 is not being delayed; they've also confirmed this multiple time last year.

    Videnak-- what makes me think the Mode 3 will be significantly better? Tesla has proven they make the safest, fastest, most high tech. cars in its class, and it happens to not need gas. As they grow, economies of scale kick in.

    Let me ask you this-- would you buy a Bolt if it wasn't an EV? As I said above, Tesla makes the safest, highest performance, highest tech cars in their class. Most of those who bought an S or X did so not just because it's a cool looking EV; the car sells itself in its class. They've sorta disrupted the luxury sedan market. They have access to a wildly growing supercharger network (almost 1,000 locations), will have an 8 year, unlim. mile warranty. They've had 10 years to perfect their technology.

    I have no doubts that the Model 3 will be one of the safest (S and X are literally the safest cars on the road according to NHTSA), fastest (Model S' 0-60 in 2.8s made it the quickest 4 door production car in existence), good looking (Bolt.. meh), out there. Also think about their technology and software advantage, autopilot features. Those franchised ICE stealerships are so good and so familiar with milking money from service.

    Comparing the Bolt to the Model 3 is like comparing an Accord to a BMW 3 series. Props to GM for getting there first, but for the same price, the Model 3 will be a vastly better car overall.

    Good luck with your prediction. Just don't bet the farm.

    Tesla wouldn't dare make the starting price more than 35-40k.

    Like Pete said-- Tesla does away with model years and has a history of making significant improvements to the car whenever they are ready. Also, there was a pretty well publicized rumor of the Model S getting a design refresh later this year. Of course they're going to do it at some point.
