But the local manufacturers don't have a good product, so the buyers of those

of the present product.
Tesla S range is a problem, but the i3 range is totally unacceptable. If wouldn't even be acceptable
if you could "refill" it as quickly as a gas stop.

As long as they can show good growth performance, and nearly break even, they are good for at least 5 more years. This is a behemoth undertaking. If they can pretty much stay on course, then they are good.
It is a bad thing until you find another way to tax the cars to pay for the roads. Probably
will happen pretty soon. Imagine when the pump prices drop by ~30 cents, and all

No, they will not. TSLA is not being treated any differently in NJ or TX from any

One out 10,000 Americans own a Tesla car. Many of the individual stock owners are from the same ranks. So very few people care, and even fewer in those states care. TSLA employed less people in NJ than a single rental car location, much less than any single dealership.
We don't like it. We don't think requiring a middle man is right. What we think will make zero difference in the ballot box.
