    Where do people get their information from? Current TESLA market cap is $60.847 billion and realistically it is only worth a fraction of that. TESLA sales 3rd quater 2018; 80,412. Read the comments and you see some wildly off figures. TESLA employee figures are all over the place don’t know which is accurate somewhere between 7,000 and 45,000. Profitability, not yet.

    Open source? then why are their controll boxes filled with junk rendering it unrepairable? However they are not the only ones that want to stop third party repair.

    TESLA are going to build a truck, BYD electric trucks are already on US streets. Perversely the electric rubbish trucks sound so much noisier than the diesel ones, (they are not but the rumbling diesel either masks the clanking or desensitizes the ear) BYD is not the only Chinese company into electric cars Zidhou build the D2. And for a bit more

    KIA Nero, KIA Soul, Hyundi Ionic (Mind you the Hyundia union does not like electric cars). Renault is considering moving Twizzy production to Korea. So don’t discount the Koreans.

    From Japan the best know is the Nissan Leaf, there is also the Mitsubisi i mev, Honda Fit and a Toyota EV Rav.

    TESLA will be left in the dust

        GB, you’re the high priest of the Musk Cult chapter here on Crock and that’s ALL you have to say? No drooling Musk-love? No talk about boring tunnels and going to Mars?

        A nice puff piece here—-lots of BS and talk of “market capitalization” (read “speculation” by greedy bastards that will desert Tesla at the next downturn). I hate to be bringing this up all the time, but The Ford F-150 has been the best selling vehicle in the U.S for 40+ years now, and ONE year’s F-150 sales surpass the number of ALL Teslas ever sold. I’m not trading my Solar Roadway stock for Tesla just yet.

          Twas a Gish Gallop ‘otwaddle. Needs no response.

          You, on the other hand, should buy Tesla stock. Make some money, join the Cult, take the Red Pill. Grovel in homage. Pledge everlasting fealty. Savor the Kool-aid.

      During the DotCom tech bubble so many not-yet-profitable companies went public with insane valuations.

    Ex EV (car) bateries destined for the grid.
