      +Gazza-usaYou are correct the biggest problem with Tesla is that they are far from mass producing their cars to satisfy demand. By the time they achieve this many car manufacturers with better established infrastructure will enter the market and flood it with affordable EVs. On the plus side Tesla will no doubt be remembered for the EVs coming to fruition

      Oh yeah and #5) customers want serviceability. Most car manufacturers employ more people on the Service side than the manufacture side. Having the ability to repair/replace/fix vehicles is a huge undertaking which Tesla has to farm out to small shops. Big manufactures are already set up for this and can outlay all the capital for the equipment needed (like exotic welders and training).

      Agreed. Tesla sheep are lost. Here's the reality. All the other car manufacturers are on the EV bandwagon and many of them are about to offer cars and suvs that have similar ranges to Tesla. Now here's the kicker; All of these car companies are backed by governments (German/Japanese/Korean/Chinese/USA etc) which means #1) they have more resources, #2) they have government backing for infrastructure, #3) they can dump product on the market, saturate it and wipe out competition, #4) they can guarantee quality since they can staff up as many people as they need. Tesla has done a great thing by changing the playing field but Tesla are akin to Barnsley 4th division now playing against Manchester City 1st division. It's going to be a blood bath in late 2018/early 2019. People don't want a shit $35K Car, they want all the extras and reliability.

    you can see how sad he is, car lovers will always be car-lovers... electric cars will take us back when it's all about carriage with a horse (but this time a carriage with electric propulsion way), with no souls in them..

    Sounds like Tesla has slowly wormed its way into Clarkson's petrolhead heart. Now that is ultimate victory. Bringing legal cases over opinion is just silly.

    So, Jeremy Clarkson lied about the cars breaks not working and running out of electric , and showing/emplying because he never actually said the car broken down just noise effects added in.... False review of a company's product could bankrupt a company.
    Elon afterwards ran a diagnosis on the car via software and the car didn't run out or power or over heat.... Sure maybe 1 in 100000 cars would overheat or not reach the maximum 200 miles it was expected at normal speeds (racing is different). But yea a biased view non the less.

    What a lying prick. He's just a f*** puppet. 9 years earlier he bashed a great car because oil and car lobbies asked him to. Now they are getting fucked by Tesla and can't do anything about it so he's finally admitting the truth! What a laugh

    Musk comes across like a man with a huge chip on his shoulder (or a very small penis) and needs to compensate by being biggest fastest smartest cleverest... but in reality comes across a bit of a bellend.
