Well, that's another thing that has sort of woken people up lately. Back when Tesla first started, you could charge at any Tesla station for free. They did away with that, so now on average it will cost you about 10 bucks to fully charge a typical model 3.Up here in Maine with c&p a Spanish company owning the electrical grid charging a Tesla cost more then running on gasoline LOL
Yea, in 10 yrs we'll be begging for Putin's Oil.Well, that's another thing that has sort of woken people up lately. Back when Tesla first started, you could charge at any Tesla station for free. They did away with that, so now on average it will cost you about 10 bucks to fully charge a typical model 3.
Now, that's 10 dollars to go about 180 to 200 miles in a car that cost going on $40,000 if you don't run a lot of accessories.
It cost me about 28 dollars to fill up my S60. I have about a 420 mile range, roughly double the Tesla on a single charge. It doesn't matter what I do, run the AC wide open, crank the 220 watt stereo, run the heated seats, whatever I do I get about the same range...and this on a car that cost 38,000.
So, yeah. You're not really saving anything at all even in a good electrical market. If you're in a bad electrical market, you'll take a freaking beating.
This will be my next car......That is presently the most desperate company on earth. Musk has led them straight to ruin. If the stock is worth 100 bucks per share at years end, I'll honestly be surprised.
He's changed his mind about 12 times in just the last 6 weeks. What's more, after all the talk about this new, magnificent crossover, what do you actually get?
A model 3 with bigger shocks for $40,000.00
Here's the present model 3:
And here's the "new" model Y:
And it's not going to even be available until sometime next year.
Wrong again, Grandppy.
Demand for oil in the U.S. is going to begin decreasing in about 8 to 10 years.
Most cars being produced by then will be either hybrid or fully electric.
Volvo, for instance, will not produce a purely gas powered car after this year. Cadillac plans to be fully electric in 20 years.
Every auto maker has similar plans. It will be developing countries that start demanding oil as we rely less and less on it.
Tesla unveiled its crossover SUV electric vehicle on Thursday night but Wall Street was largely unimpressed by the car and received it with little fanfare.
The shares dropped more 4.5 percent in trading Friday.
"Overall, we found the event somewhat underwhelming with no major surprises," Deutsche Bank's Emmaneul Rosner said in a note.
