No, it's not yet an area of interest for the company. Perhaps they're doing it in secret and will have a surprise announcement one day. In the mean time they have their hands full trying to get up and running to full capacity.
By the way, why are you answering your own posting?
Because no one else appeared to know the answer and after two days you just get lost in the shuffle.
The goal is to eliminate the pipes. Mr. Musk will build the battery factory, no question about it, maybe even two.
The gubmint oughta give him a low interest $5 billion loan to do it too, especially since Mr. Musk pays back his loans, whereas taxpayers ate an $11+ billion loss bailing out the poorly run General Motors.
Jason Kolbert who wrote the article has a 50% success rate, so feel free to flip a coin instead of reading his out of his depth analysis. When he says "We see no reason to be long" is he referring to his dog, cat or parakeet? Tthere's no way to know.who "We" is. In the same article it mentions that he has a 5.6% rate of return. Odidi wouldn't give hime the time of day. He has a $3 price target which is at least 10% upside from here, that's better than his 5.6% average, so he's unknowingly recommending the stock here as his best pick.
I fully expect both, just not sure which will come first. But it doesn't really matter either.
Richard Adkerson, the CEO made $82 million last year. Would he have suffered greatly if he had only made $5 million at the expense of improving the lives of a few thousand employees instead. CEO salaries are obscene.
The exact opposite is true for up to 3 years following a stock split. Reverse splits are a different story. Apple will continue to march forward into the hearts minds and wallets of the world.
Many people live in houses that have electricity. A lot to get excited about. Imagine quieter cities with cleaner air. Unfortunately that's probably decades away.
As long as they spell Tesla correctly it's good for sales and the stock. Free advertising again. The fact that the shmuck thief survived is a miracle and testament to Tesla engineering. The damage he caused was unbelievable. As for fuel in the form of a battery catching fire after a crash, that's expected. Perhaps some of the newer better battery chemistries will avoid that in the future.
That's been my only concern all along. If they have to they can use smaller tanks and just use more of them. If they can consistently produce in large quantities, the sky is the limit.
This is disruptive technology that the world needs and is so useful in so many areas. There will be bumps and hiccups and delays, but it's worth the effort and investment. Patience will pay as many say. One day there will be a giant short squeeze and no one will ever believe you could have bought this under $10.
Mixed blessing because it means a LOT more dilution and years of testing and years to finally get approval. By then, I'm not sure their patents won't have expired, meanwhile millions suffer unnecessarily.
I say get approval in India, Mexico and Canada first. U.S. last, but that's not happening.
Less than 3 weeks later came your answer: Dilution first. So maybe the next approval is less than 3 weeks away? This registration is for up to $100 million. They ain't foolin' around.
Not really desparate, unless you'd say that anyone who posts to a Yahoo Message Board is by definition. I'd just like to see wider adoption of electrified vehicles. UQM is a key ingredient. If they had a program for their employees to help them build their own conversions it'd be cool. I'd like to see conversions shops as common as automotive repair shops.
No, peckerhead, bad guess. I've held this stock for 14 years. I'm just being realistic. It costs a fortune to do studies and #$%$ around with the FDA. If they don't dilute I'd be shocked.
Low center of gravity with regenerative braking sounds good to me. I guess you haven't noticed they're popular in snowy Norway. The Model X will be even better still.
I wonder which 5 ton monster muchomacho is talking about, can't be a Tesla. Maybe he's just bad at converting pounds to tons.
Joshua Shot was thrown from the Tesla he stole, he was not in it. The instant karma stolen Tesla ejection feature must have been enabled. I doubt he was wearing a seatbelt either.
