One thing to remember is that right now Tesla has all of their production lines running full speed but still can't keep up, even after raising the price on the Model Y by $5k in the past 6 months. Most competitors have lines and employees sitting around doing nothing. It is a lot easier to justify changing over production facilities that are idle than those that are bringing in millions of dollars every day.


I think you need to realize that GM is producing more vehicles a day than Tesla. You might also notice that GM has had better financial results than Tesla for many consecutive quarters. GM is also more transparent, providing delivery details for US while Tesla only gives one consolidated number.

The point is, that two years ago, many of you did not believe that GM or Rivian could build an electric truck. Make all the excuses you can, or heap all the praise you can for Tesla.

As much as I like my Silverado,
GM Bolts catching fire all over without even crashing dont inspire confidence in their products.

Notice by GM,,park your Bolts at least fifty feet away from other cars! Would be funny if it wasnt so sad.

Btw Tesla is largest EV manufacturer in the World now.

When GM makes as many Evs then you can brag,hatin on Tesla makes you look silly.
FYI It takes bit of a time to build two Gigafactories.
GM isnt even trying to get in the game.

And judgin by price of Tesla stock it beats GM and pretty much every other auto co hands down as an investment.

I do not hate Tesla, or Ford, or Ram or Kia any auto company. I try to provide accurate data, and present additional facts to those that are pushing their agenda.

The stock market is a place to wager. I am saying that GM, Ford, and Stellantis each had more quarterly revenue than Tesla.

Please provide a notice to park 50 ft away. This is just your attempt to provide negative statements.

There may have been as many Tesla's running into stationary emergency vehicles as Bolts caught fire.

To be clear, GM says:
At Chevrolet it is our mission to keep you, our customer, at the center of everything we do. To that end, we are writing you today to hear from Chevrolet directly about your vehicle. General Motors is voluntarily expanding the current Chevrolet Bolt EV recall to cover the remaining 2019 and all 2020-2022 model year vehicles, including the Bolt EUV. In rare circumstances, LG batteries supplied to GM for these vehicles may have manufacturing defects which increase the risk of fire. Out of an abundance of caution, GM will replace defective lithium ion battery modules in Chevrolet Bolt EVs and EUVs with new modules as parts become available. To provide you with peace of mind, your battery will receive an 8-year/100,000-mile limited parts warranty.1
We are working aggressively with LG to increase production as soon as possible. We will notify you when replacement parts are ready. For your safety we are asking for you to immediately do the following:
1. Set your vehicle to a 90% state of charge limitation using Target Charge Level mode. Instructions on how to do this are available at www.chevy.com/boltevrecall. If you are unable to successfully make these changes, or do not feel comfortable making these changes, GM is asking you to visit your dealer to have these adjustments completed.
2. Charge your vehicle more frequently and avoid depleting your battery below approximately 70 miles (113 kilometers) of remaining range, where possible.
3. Park your vehicle outside immediately after charging and do not leave your vehicle charging indoors overnight.

Besides, this thread was about a semi. And a company that took millions of dollars of deposits from other company's with a promise to deliver. There has been no delivery.

GM will get this bolt battery issue sorted out and be stronger for it. And one has to remember, the car is solid as a rock and has the history to prove it. It’s the battery that they buy from LG that is the problem. Right now they are dependant on other companies for key EV components. I think that will lessen as they spin up their own in house components. I think the bolts reputation is probably irreparably repaired but that’s just a model name. They may drop it and come out with a new slightly changed version. Who knows.

Our buddy at the Chevy dealership called us in two days before the stop sale order for a look see at the Bolt EUV. It’s a nice little buggy. I have had nothing but bad luck with GM products all my life, but I like this little car. It is no where near the performance and driving experience of our Tesla but it doesn’t try to be either. When the hatch is open and the seats are down it’s huge and the space is much more useable than our Tesla model 3. Really the only thing that bugs me about it is the crazy low fast charge rate. But as long as one is not using it for long road trips who cares. It’s probably not ideal for a one vehicle household like ours where we have to do road trips, but again not everybody needs that.

Anyway, I wouldn’t count the bolt out yet.

Jmho.

If you dont want to wait for semi ask for your money back,simple.

Yah, and if I recall your supposed to disengage around construction, bicycles on the side of the road, other roads hazards (you know, like Emergency vehicles Etc). It’s really not that hard to use properly. People just like to use it like a level 4 system. It’s a level 2 system. Works well though. Adds an extra level of safety for us. We like it. To each his own.
