Tesla acting shady and gets barred from doing business for next 5 years.

Act stupid and get the stupid award. Elon you get the gold medal for that.

Noose getting tighter and tighter.




Nonissue:

Rubeck said Tesla did not have any transactions with Atlantic City casinos within the past year, which factored into the ban.

Elon apparently tweeted today (CNBC story) that Tesla will no longer offer the base Model S or Model X. Wonder why? Cheapest Model S available (P75?) will start at $94,000. Did Tesla discover after how many years the 'entry' level cars were money losers? The article didn't address the pricing on the X but if memory serves wasn't the base model like 87K?

Will a a $40K SUV EV with 258 mile range be a game changer?

Not around here. Need 600 mile range towing and 3 minute recharge on every corner.

Otherwise it will be a very practical, low polluting, fun to drive, low cost to operate vehicle.

There is some conjecture that they want to put some separation between the top end performance model 3 and the model S and X. Also, in the past, every time they discontinued a smaller battery they added a larger higher density one. Speculation on something like a 120 KWH battery available for the S and X. Guess we’ll see.

We’ll a mid range Lemur model 3 Tesla is 44000 including premium upgrade package. And it has 264 mikes of range. And it’s available now. And it has access to the Supercharger network. I think the Hyundai will find a market but not at 40,000.

On Edit. Chevy better look at dropping their price on the Bolt too

That was my first thought also. Move the S & X to the new battery format going into the 3. I think it could go as high as 150 kWh capacity.

150 might be a big jump and still make it fit. 125 would put them right around 400 miles for range...ish. That size would couple nicely with V3 supercharger charge rates speculated at 160 to 170 KW although the model 3 battery is supposed to be good for around 160 already so it may have more to do with the cells than the size of the pack.

Wondering if the March time frame model Y reveal won't be when they announce the model S makeover. New battery packs, dash, version three supercharger rates etc. I wouldn't be surprised if they use the 1000 dollar deposit approach to finance the Capex for the model Y assembly line. My guess, giga one in Nevada. That kinda thing must be expensive.

I've owned 3 Hyundai Santa Fe's and trust the company. While I haven't seen a Tesla Model 3 fit and finish, at this point I would prefer to buy a Kona over a non-existent 35k Model 3.

I was hoping Hyundai's base model would be closer to 35-37k however.

It would be fantastic if Hyundai can move a lot of these cheaper models. 258 miles of range fits my needs, although I sure would love to have a 600 mile range vehicle.
