  • Tesla Kicks China Plans Into High Gear [View article]
    Tom, what definition do you think materially affects TSLA stock price going forward? I mean for all the time you spend on it there must be some fundamental importance.

  • Is The Model S A Disruptive Innovation And Tesla Motors A Disruptive Company? [View article]
    How does Chip not know the basic differences in energy density between LiFePO4 and NCA? Twice the energy density is "not that much"? And people wondered how I dared question his "expertise" in the industry....

  • Tesla: Don't Say You Never Had A Dip To Buy On [View article]
    Actually I'm guaranteeing it. Common sense should make it obvious why it has to be, plus the fact that Tesla has said it will cost more.

    Dan does more homework than you, and he actually owns a Model S, unlike you. None of your links show anything about actual long term degradation, it's just a bunch of speculation. That's because you can't find any real data showing that NCA cells degrade as quickly as you want to pretend. I guess you hope no one bothers to click on the links you post and just take your word for it, since they never show what you claim. I don't know who you think you're fooling, other than yourself.

    In fact it has happened at two SC locations, since they have solar panels. Since bailout has been made aware of this fact, claiming otherwise is simply a lie.

    An accident is not the same as a properly operating plant, just as a house fire does not represent the normal emissions from a home.

    Lucky,
    Putting 150K miles on a car in 3-4 years is driving it hard, and far beyond normal use.

    Everything has an impact, unless we decided to live in huts, or caves, we need to choose the least impactful ways while still maintaining a reasonably advanced lifestyle. Hydro may have some local impacts, and there are ways to design around some of those. In any case, hydro impacts are not pollution. Regarding Fukushima, it was the wrong type of nuclear, as are most current reactors. LFTR's seem like a much better way to go.

    If you were to say the earth is round tom would endlessly argue that it is in fact flat. I learned a while back that there is little to be gained arguing with him.

  • Model S deliveries to start in China [View news story]
    No point in Tesla being at the NY auto show. Everyone is talking about them anyway.

    They still get unlimited use of superchargers, I don't hear any of them complaining, only you.

    Nuclear is not a polluter. Neither is hydro which is baseload in many places at night.

    It's funny how you keep posting about the one and only Tesla vehicle that ever had significant capacity loss, and that was a Roadster with 150K miles on it that was obviously driven hard on a consistent basis, using an older LiCo chemistry. As the video you posted shows Tesla is currently using a superior and longer lasting NCA chemistry, negating all your worry about cell cycle life. I'm sure all Model S owners thank you for your misplaced concerns.

    Any shorted cell capable of high current output can cause a fire. LiFePO4 uses the same organic solvent based flammable electrolyte. Short it and the heat generated from full current flow could catch something on fire. Why do ICE's use gasoline when Diesel is actually safer? Safety is relative and all energy storage carries risks. NCA has acceptable safety risks. Lithium Titanate may be the "safest" choice, yet almost no EV builder is using it. Why not? Because of poor energy density and high cost. You can't build a 200+ mile range with lithium titanate or LiFePO4, simple as that.

    Of course, because it will have greater range, better performance, and a lower price. I've already been over this with you before.
