Right idea, wrong execution. $75-100K for this sled is way out of whack. And there are bouque questions on the longevity of the battery, and long term safety issues. That being said, the premise is a good one, and a mostly if not all electric vehicle society may well evolve, but at prices and logistics which make sense. And as to valuation.............please.
Generally, circuit breakers help manage this problem. With 7,000 batteries, I would say that approach is problematic at best. No battery is ready for prime time yet, when that reality finally sinks in, this stock, and possibly the company are toast. Too much too fast too soon, and its unlikely they can grow through it, because battery tech is a long way off from delivering what the public wants--and at a price it can afford.
P-P asking questions like this on this board is a bit of a waste, the pumpers are clueless about the science involved--I have only seen 4 people who actually understand what the shooting is about, and they get run over by the gallery hanging out with Alice trying to jump down the rabbit hole. ;)~ This is SOOOO 90's bubble, you can script the outcome in two minutes.
" regardless of the fire’s origin, the long-term interests of Tesla shareholders may be better served if the company spends more time taking responsibility and less time deflecting criticism.
If consumers don’t believe the Tesla vehicle system — battery, vehicle AND charging stations — can get them from Point A to Point B safely and reliably, they won’t buy the car in large-enough numbers to make the company’s massive investments pay off.
And that confidence could be shaken equally whether or not Tesla owns a part or cable that starts a fire.
Given how much negative media attention the Tesla car fires have drawn, the company should take ownership of the problem, just as other auto makers must do if a part made by a supplier fails in one of their cars. "
Hey listen Bozo, you need to go back to 8th grade science. Capacitors don't work that way. If they did we would be harvesting lighting strikes. If you can't get a life 'crat, at least get an education before spewing your drivel.
