  • A Comprehensive Look At Tesla's Home Batteries [View article]
    Tom,

    "JRP,
    If you agree that energy from FOSSIL FUEL costs the same to produce whether its night or day, then please just say that in the future. "

    I don't agree with that, so I won't say it. Different fossil fuels have different costs, and even the same fossil fuel can have different costs depending on the plant it's used in and how it's used. Once again you clearly don't know what you're talking about, yet still you persist.

  • Tesla's Big Battery Building - Doom Or Progress? [View article]
    Actually what Port said was this:

    "From the picture, looks like the factory is being built on dirt instead of concrete foundation. I don't see any traces of concrete in the site. It doesn't look like like they buildings are built to last..."

    Since there is in fact a concrete foundation, as you admit: "footers for the main support beams", you prove the lie to Port's post. The concrete floor, which is not the same as a foundation, will come later. Port was spreading FUD, as usual, and was exposed by facts. It will always be thus.

    TFTF,

    In case you missed the post from Peter, I'll repeat it for you:

    "Q3-2014 Shareholder Letter:
    <<Together with Panasonic we are making good progress toward first cell production in 2016, slightly earlier than originally scheduled. >>"

    Tesla plans cell production to start in 2016. Finishing the interior and installing cell production machines is not the most difficult part, moving massive steel beams and installing them precisely is.

  • Tesla says Nevada battery plant on track, refutes report of delay [View news story]
    "Remember, the average miles on the S models coming on the used market is about 6000-7000 miles a year. That's show car mileage."

    Actually the real mileage is much higher than CParm claims, and for cars that are around 1-2 years old are quite normal. Sure there are few garage queens, including some that have less than 1K which skew the averages.

  • Sorting Out The Tesla Model X Launch: When, How, And Who Are The Buyers? [View article]
    "you do realize the Volt outsold the Model S in the US last year?"

    Wow, the car at half the price sold more than the more expensive one, the one that is also production constrained and has a waiting list?

    Small amounts of water will not react with the "lithium" because cells don't contain metallic lithium, they have lithium ions.

  • Tesla Disappointed In 2014, Might Do So Again In 2015 And Beyond [View article]
    Interesting that you characterize a trend that will ultimately move us to a more sustainable and cleaner living standard as "stupid".

    " However between a Model 3 and a plugin hybrid with an electric range of 50miles, I will choose the hybrid if the prices are comparable. If such hybrid exists and is not selling well, then Model 3 will not sell well, IMHO."

    So explain the terrible Cadillac ELR sales compare to the Tesla Model S sales. Facts are counter to your premise.

    They are the same basic form factor, (container size), though constructed differently.

    "Okay, I don't think solar is that realistic and I don't think using utility is better than consuming gasoline,..."

    Luckily reality is not influenced by what you "think", and what you think is simply wrong.

    "Nationwide, EVs charged from the electricity grid produce lower global warming emissions than the average compact gasoline-powered vehicle (with a fuel economy of 27 miles per gallon)—even when the electricity is produced primarily from coal in regions with the “dirtiest” electricity grids.
    In regions with the “cleanest” electricity grids, EVs produce lower global warming emissions than even the most fuel-efficient hybrids.
    EVs charged entirely from renewable sources like wind and solar power produce virtually no global warming emissions."

    "The pouch design allows the expansion to occur without creating additional stress as does the 18650 design."

    That's funny, since pouch cells are strapped tightly together under pressure when built into a pack, preventing expansion.
