So what???? They'll just buy a car the next month. That's all BS, "It's cold I won't buy a car this month or never again."
I do like the Wankel engines once they got the oil issue worked out. Never did take off but the principle was sound. RX7 was car until they pushed the price up too high.
SUV's are selling big time hence why I said GM was a buy 3 months ago. Just saying.
As far as 7%-8% of barely nothing in sells I'm not impressed.
I talked to a couple of guys from Cally who were making out on solar panels because all day they sold high rate electricity back to the power company then used electric later in the day when that got home. Rebates plus favorable day and night rates made the solar panels profitable for a home owner.
Both guys said they our now grandfathered in but the their days are number as far as being able to pull off a profit but at this point their PV panels are paid off so they can't lose. They took the government money and beat the system.
It's all a game about beating the system. I would have PV panels on my home but my power company pays wholesale for excess power generated so I couldn't even come close to getting the numbers to work.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Again, most people are stupid. If they are told hydrogen fuel cells are clean then they are clean. That's why car companies like the idea, it solves their problem of zero tail pipe emissions Where the hydrogen comes from is not their problem. .
Next he will leave the US for the rain forest of South America with his loyal followers so they can continue their work without the bother of the unbelievers.
Elon already said the Chinese are to stupid to figure out how to charge Tesla's at home. I believe when you buy a Tesla in China a guy comes over and installs a charging station for you. First attempt to stop the stupid.
All I know is this. When your customer needs to be educated about the product then your product is a fail.
It is a 100% demand problem in China, they are hard core Capitalist who all come from poor back grounds. You make it big you don't go buy some green car, you buy a status symbol for your driver to drive you around in. For that matter Tesla doesn't make a long wheel base so that might be a problem as well. The high end cars that sell in China are long wheel based. Chinese love buttons as well, lots of options and buttons. "You drive communist #$%$ car with no buttons, you're poor I'm not. I have m,any buttons."
