It's finally here! The $35k Tesla has arrived.  Order on your phone in 1-5 minutes, arrives at your home in 2-4 weeks. 7 day/1000 mile no-hassle return if not happy. 500K-1Mil mile driv

Boy you certainly wouldn't want to take a long trip if you have to stop every 170 miles to recharge.

Actually a very good move - if younger would defiantly do it - luckily did Apple (some real scary years for awhile) and believe it or not Home Depot

I've never seen a charging station. I live in Florida near a smaller metropolitan area of just 2.5 million. Maybe it's just because I've never looked for one…

I haven't seen any answers, rebuttals, or solutions offered to my statements.  Therefore nothing has been provided in return so that's just plain nuts. Note , I "never" said I didn't like it. My questions remain whether you like it or not. 

I guess someone is perhaps waiting for info from AOC before they answer any of my more than valid questions below.

Replacement battery costs and frequency ?  Electricity is not free folks especially in the Philippines. And they cannot even meet the demand now, How about when millions of cars need charging ? What fuel will be burned to produce the electricity ? How much pollution will that add ? What will happen to all the defunct batteries ? Can they be recycled ?  And at what costs ? What will happen to the cost of the raw materials to produce these billions of batteries and how large is the supply of same. The basic Tesla still costs double the price of a small gasoline car. Our Mirage GLS with auto trans, and a/c running constantly gets over 40 mpg. Stop and go city still 30 mpg plus.  Just how many miles would one have to drive to even break even on the price differential alone not counting battery replacement and all the other variables. I am a long long way from being sold on this deal. Every action has a reaction, fuels will still need to be burned or collected to produce the electricity and on and on. No fuel is truly renewable. That's is a whole new  subject.  And don't even try to say solar if free. Solar absorbs heat energy to the earth that is normally dispersed back into space. Thermal is cooling the center of the earth, at some point that will have a definite reaction. Exploring further into space may be the answer. Nothing is free.

It will happen - how soon who knows.

1St color TV 15" @ $10,000? of today's money - remember seeing a large screen TV in the 90"s? for $12,000 = $20,000  - now RCA 65" $500.00

Will take 'tons' more who can afford and willing to buy them now and more importantly they suit their lifestyles.

Same as a Corvette does not make a good family car (usually)

Re electric vehicles..  I've always wondered when someone like Sony or LG will get into the assembly game..  and bring their experience at really driving down consumer appliance costs and prices.

The Tesla is made in state of the art automated facilities.

It's cost per unit to produce - make one car and it costs several million dollars - make 10 million cars, all the same, and they would go for 20 K?

I like what PhilsFan has to say about Tesla..But..Splashing down here in the philippines soon..Naah..Hell,stick shift SUV"s and Pickups are the rage here now...they also must get past when backing up to have another person directing them..!st world countries started th SUV trend in the late 80's or early 90's..Soon the rage here will change to automatics..After then will Tesla and the other electric boys will start being the rage..Most of us will be 6ft under by then so no need to argue about it now.. 

PhilsFan is just gloating anyways because he just got Bryce Harper on his team ..

Your just making shit up now Moe. Drive the car next time you're in the US. You have NO experience with this. You're retired and not driving anymore, so maybe this topic isn't relevant for you and most of the other guys commenting. I started the thread to make people aware and educate if I could. Now it's turned into a pissing match. Not what I intended.

I drive usually everyday. Last time in US did the trip North twice in a month.

Until there are enough stations to insure it won't happen it will.

Same as carrying extra back in the 50's.
