Interesting observations, and shows that to some extent Tesla is like any company that grows very quickly. Very concerned about vehicles not being fixed correctly the first time they're brought in. If you had a Toyota or Nissan econobox, you'd be ticked off, but its just outrageous if you've spend $100k.
I also wonder whether some of the "fixes" are permanent? Shims for the drivetrain, that type of thing.
Why you so busy pumping your scam?
You obviously placed first in the Koolaid chugging contest.
Have you nothing to actually contribute today?
Tesla last in dealer experience.
Tesla clone being developed.
Tesla to sell Model X in China in 1st half of 2016.
Lot of things going on, yet this is what you post, mindless taunts?
Back in Jan 2011, before the gigafactory nonsense,
Panasonic, largely through its Sanyo subsidiary, had about a 26 percent share of the global market for lithium ion cells, according to research firm Techno Systems Research. The company had contracts to supply batteries to six automakers including Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and Suzuki Motor Corp (7269.T).
It had plans to sell batteries for aprox 100k EVs. and had committed more money to expansion in Asia than it has spent on gigafactory.
I think Tesla is a little more than a nice account for Panasonic. Panasonic has done the right thing and become a low price producer of a commodity product that it will sell to the EV industry. If Tesla grows fine, if not, Panasonic is already courting the more likely up and comers.
Little surprising some of the people headed to competitors.
Tesla's CFO leaving, that was a surprise too.
Faraday startup will be fun to watch.
Stock being up has nothing to do with the faulty business plan, It has to do with PR and promotion. Stock pps being up does little to help Tesla except perhaps allow yet another secondary offering.
GIgafactory is one of the best examples of Musks ego driving a business decision that makes little sense. Batteries are a commodity and Tesla should do as VW has, standardize modules and get competitive bids to keep prices low. Musk should concentrate on the core business and quit getting distracted.
Like my accountant asks " What do you want it to say?"
There's a reason for GAAP reporting.
I think they'll be back flying fairly quickly, but it should be remembered that they have only found a theory for the failure that matches up with what was seen on telemetry. Hopefully its as simple as that. Has little to do with Tesla EVs, but I guess were mostly technology buffs here.
