Who here thinks waiting two years to buy a $49,000 car that you have never test driven is a good idea?
model 3 reservation holders are bailing out and Tesla is so overwhelmed with cancellations it takes months to get your money back
"Shashank Chitti, a former Model 3 reservation holder, told the outlet that he was done waiting and frustrated by Tesla’s lack of transparency. He canceled his reservation more than two months ago, but still hasn’t received his refund.
“Every time I reach out I get the same explanation: They have a lot of cancellations to process, they’ll prioritize my request, and that my refund should go out in the next batch,” Chitti said.
Users on Reddit have echoed those sentiments and told stories of waiting even longer.
What happens when you cancel your Tesla Model 3 reservation?
So you dropped a smooth $1000 to reserve your new Model 3, but decide that Tesla’s latest mass market car isn’t in your future anymore. What are your options? The company’s website says deposit holders can cancel at their own will, with the company’s
electric cars have the simplest architecture electric cars have the fewest parts electric cars have zero emissions -- eliminate big city smog and pollution electric car batteries can be 100% recycled electric car batteries will come down in price over time electric cars will increase in range over time electric cars will become cost competitive over time
electric cars are the future.
yes or no?
Ho ho ho "Morgan Stanley while professing great confidence in Tesla and raising their price target, quietly sold off over 2 million shares in Q2. That was 60% of their holdings. I guess the old adage still holds true. - Do as I say, not as I do."
I'm trying to test some common sense here: for example, can we agree that the more the production is delayed, the more reservation cancellations are to be expected?
Tesla will forced to introduce Auto shut all Electric Consumption very very soon including A/C & heater regardless outside temperature. Why forced:- Traffic jam
can we finally start getting some downgrades to start the ball rolling to put this thing into BK once and for all
Wow! What a scam musk and tesla are!
1 whole week after musk had to borrow $1.8 billion to fund the tesla model 3 production ponzi scheme, he is asking for another $1.8 billion in debt to fund it.
1. Tesla Inc. TSLA has announced that it will issue and sell $1.80 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due in 2025. The announcement came barely a week after the first announcement of raising $1.5 billion, through the offering of senior notes due 2025. The company intends to use the proceeds of these notes offering to support the production of its latest Model 3 sedan and other corporate objectives.
Auto Stock Roundup: Tesla Upsizes Model 3 Funds, General Motors Expands Ride and Delivery
Competition from foreign SUVs & electric cars prompts U.S. auto majors to prepare for the future differently. That, however, does not mean that these companies should take their eyes off the present.
"Tesla does not advertise" is not that same as "Tesla is not advertised". Tesla is the most advertised brand on the planet (two planets). Financial institutions have been whoring out their integrity for years, creating an entity that is not so much about a car, or technology (thank god), but a belief system based on guilt (excessive consumption) and faith (belief without proof). Sound familiar? They don't need to believe, they just need you to, and they have been highly successful. However, unlike the biblical rapture, Tesla's has a finite time frame, based on Model 3 production. Pascal's Wager does not apply here, because there is something to be lost; your investment.
IMO this does not bode well for the Model 3, glad I have received my deposit back after canceling, it took about 1 month. Will those who wait to purchase the $35K version even get the tax credit, guess it depends on how long?
Tesla Model 3 Buyers Report Being Shoved Towards Model S Instead - ExtremeTech
Multiple Tesla owners have reported being given a hard sell, pushing them towards the Model S and away from the Model 3. if the Model 3 is Tesla's true mass market car, why is the company encouraging people not to buy it?
Elon just tweeted that if people don't start buying the models S and X right away he will make the sun disappear on Monday.
Anyone know if Elon's house has a Tesla Solar Roof? You'd think it would have been a great PR stunt. Reminds me of the biologist who discovers a pill that cures cancer. However, one side effect is your #$%$ might fall off. Think he'll be the first to test it? The good doctor doesn't want to become a eunuch, and Musk doesn't want to have a stupid looking roof, that doesn't work.
does tesla need some way to cool the model 3 monitor ? or is direct sunlight no problem at all? What other clitches will they find on the M3 I wonder??? 2018 sales will be <80k
I did warn you Bagholders 2 weeks ago that 370 was the lower high. But alas you all laughed and called me stupid. That is more satisfying than my fat profits
Is Tesla Really a Disruptor? (And Why the Answer Matters)
The Model 3 is more like a first-generation e-reader than an iPhone.
Let's see if we have this straight,...
The last admin added $10 trillion to the tax payers' backs, doubling all debt since the US was formed with absolutely nothing to show for it.
The unaffordable care act system has health insurance so expensive after you're forced to pay the premiums, you can't afford the deductibles to get healthcare. It would be a better deal if everyone just paid for their own healthcare out of their own pocket,.... like a free market system is supposed to work.
The democrats are "the party of no" on any plan to fix the failing healthcare ponzi scheme debacle they saddled tax payers' with,..
The left claims being pro-America, pro-Capitalism, is something to be ashamed of. They're even proud to burn American flags.
They put foreigners' wants above the constitutional rights and safety of legal citizens.
They even open the tax payer funded Social Security, already on a path of insolvency, to all non tax paying citizens.
After spending $22 trillion on the war on poverty, there are more people living under the poverty level than at anytime in US history.
There are far left nutbag pro-athletes and celebrities who've made millions even billions in and under the country and system they delusionally claim has been just horrible to them.
And do they use their millions and billions to help the needy, the poor?
Of course not, they show their gratitude to the country and philanthropy to the poor by refusing to stand during the national anthem at sporting events.
And what does the far left media, da and the rest of his commie nutbag ilk worry about?
What do they think the number one priority should be?
Quite contrary, but consistently inconsistently insane, to their scheme to keep minorities enslaved in the welfare state,.... to remove 100 year old statues of democrats who fought to maintain the slave state?
Do we have this about right?
Let's talk scenario:- You travel on Model 3 220 Mile range for 400 Mile trip on 100 F day. Climax control set at 68, You listen music. How many time will you forced to stop 1 hour or more (If no open spot at super charge)? Please answer 1.> Once 2.> Twice 3.> Three Time.
My answer :- three time at least (Assuming you start with full charge & have charging facility at destination (Else you have only 10 mile range left. ) My calculation on total wattage required for 400 mile trip. 100kwh for 400 mile range. 70 kwh AC Usage:- 10 hp:- 7 kwh, 10 hour (3 hour during charge time) = 70kwh 5 kwh :- Audio and other:- 0.5kwh = 10 hour = 5kwh 10kwh:- Auto Pilot ( Given 50 time powerful computer than normal, 8 camera, 16 sensor, I might underestimating 1kwh) Total:- 185 kwh /50 = 3.7 Usage. Total Additional 75 kwh or 1.5 charge time. Trip:- Assuming start at full charge, You will force to stop at each 110 mile ( Assume 200 real world range, 50kwh bettery pack = 4/kwh, 110 = 27.5kwh, 20kwh AC and other usage, 2.5 kwh excess for traffic jam planning, not enough but EV driver willing to take risk.)
How powerful is car's air conditioning system in watts? - Quora
A coworker ran into a guy the other day at a Sheetz gas station nearby who was driving a Model S. Apparently, Sheetz gas stations (or at least some of them) have free charging, but the guy said it takes about 14 hours to charge, so he only uses the car for short trips and charges at home. Definitely sounds like a car for the masses! BAAHWHAHWAA
Where is Shortrashians' Logic.......................... They keep saying that they like coal a lot [ and for various legitimate reasons]. However they keep saying that they don't like Tesla albeit these cars run on coal generated energy [so they say]. So I ask : where is The Logic ? Took a nap time or what ? I sense that Gerbils are a little bit illogical and hypocritical or at best lacking of fair judgment.
