    According to a March 2021 Cairn Energy Research Advisors report Tesla pays an average of $142 per kWh for battery cells versus $169 per kWh for GM and an industry average of $186 per kWh. Battery packs are the biggest expense in manufacturing electric vehicles. I don't know what the cost of...

    California False Advertising California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has accused Tesla of falsely advertising its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) features, as reported earlier by the Los Angeles Times (via CNBC). The agency filed two separate complaints with the state’s Office of...

    New "Teslakee" hack gives thieves their own personal key. Martin Herfurt, a security researcher in Austria, quickly noticed something odd about the new feature: Not only did it allow the car to automatically start within 130 seconds of being unlocked with the NFC card, but it also put the car in...

    Was at a family function in the trendy Fulton River District area and there were Tesla's everywhere. Driving by, parked on the streets. S's, 3's, X's. Also noticed a Leaf, Ford Mach-e but just lots and lots of Tesla's. In the loop as well. Good to see EV's being seen as trendy, though I doubt my...

    So I am going to be buying a 2017 Volt within the next month and I have a question about charging. I am getting the charge point home flex to charge my Volt with level 2 capability. My dad is going to be getting a Tesla Model Y within the next year so he needs 50A charging for his car while the...

    The car dealers lost one. Tesla’s settlement with Michigan will allow the company to sell and service its cars in the state without being forced to go through a car dealer. About time. Rivian next? https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-michigan-settlement-point-of-no-return/

    Whoa, 7 rooftop solar panel fires and counting. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/08/after-seven-roof-fires-walmart-sues-tesla-over-solar-panel-flaws/ Sounds like German car rental companies are not the only ones having trouble with Tesla addressing quality issues.

    Add to that, dropping all prices 6%, now raising all prices 3%. Tesla has been wildly bouncing back and forth on it's store and pricing strategy of late. After bringing online a bunch of new stores, they announced they were closing almost all stores immediately to be able to sell a $35k Model...

    I know some have found dirt above their Volt underbody air deflectors. This shop in Canada apparently regularly finds 20-40lbs scooped up by Tesla Model 3's due to sand on snowy roads. The mechanic thinks this scooping effect may have been the cause of bumpers falling off as well, due to the...

    After being admitted to the Buttonwillow race, and then winning first place, the Model 3 was disqualified when the second place sore loser protested that the Tesla did not use gas or diesel, lol. What a great story. Admitting the car on the expectation it would lose, and then kicking out the EV...

    Looks like VW has learned from Musk. Make outlandish claims on timing and price, deliver something even if late and at a higher price. So far, VW has been a winner based on press releases. But 2020 will be the year they put up or shut up. Of course, they could always claim "manufacturing hell"...

    The SEC complaint alleges that Musk issued "false and misleading" statements and failed to properly notify regulators of material company events. Sources close to the company told CNBC the company was also expecting to be sued, though Tesla was not named as a defendant in the complaint. In...

    Auto Haulers Don't Know Anything About Elon Musk's Claimed 'Extreme Shortage' of Car Carrier Trailers https://jalopnik.com/auto-haulers-dont-know-anything-about-elon-musks-claime-1829329912 Seems like an excuse for poor planning spin doctored by Musk into a some sort of positive news.

    "Musk mouth" can be a pro or a con. The "taking the company private, funding secured" tweet is still reverberating. So the DOJ is looking into this in addition to the SEC and of course there are the lawsuits. All are distractions from the business of making cars...

    When Elon Musk tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private at $420 a share with funding secured, he was banking on a cash injection from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) to make it happen. Taking Tesla private would require a multi-billion investment. Musk surmised that...

    Tesla drops $35,000 price from Model 3 page—insists plans haven’t changed, lol. Dropping the $35k affordable EV for the masses and then denying it was dropped can be called gaslighting. Gaslighting equals misdirection, distraction, and the deliberate denial of reality. So what Tesla once...
