Re: Musk endeavours

Those of you complaining that you can't all do a 300A charge simultaneously clearly haven't tried getting all of you into the same petrol station forecourt simultaneously either. But refilling a tank is a lot quicker than even the best recharging, and is going to remain so, at least for some time, ...

Re: Musk endeavours

Ody, There may be something in some of those points, but your really should recognise that any issue for VW, and other big auto is always seen by you as a major problem, whereas any issues that relate to Tesla are either false or evidence of imminent world domination. I can't see that as a sound bas...

Re: Musk endeavours

Various stuff coming out to the effect that Panasonic's cell production is at about 23GWh, and that this is the practical Giga 1 constraint for tesla at present. You are perhaps right, dspp, but what I've seen, which may be much more limited that what you have has Pana saying they are constrained b...

Re: Musk endeavours

Here we have anyone who buys batteries from Tesla/Panasonic putting cash flow into Tesla's & Panasonics profits Why do you think excess batteries Pana sell will boost Tesla's profits? There is perhaps some truth in that view, as I understand it Tesla have commitments to buy a certain number of ...

Re: Musk endeavours

So let me get this right. Competitors have to buy Tesla batteries since their own are not as good and/or in short supply and this is a negative for Tesla? Surely what's being talked about is them buying Panasonic batteries, just as Tesla do? The negative bit for Tesla is that there seem to be a lot...

Re: Barclays suddenly expensive

They've only just started charging me this month, about 18 months since the new fee structure came in. I'm not clear how they've decided who to charge when, my wife started being charged almost immediately. I'm sure they'll get to you in time! Certainly no need to remind them!

Re: Selftrade charges

If your holdings are in trusts you need to look closely before moving. A lot of brokers charge "platform" charges for funds which could quickly come to a lot more than what Selftrade are asking.

Re: Musk endeavours

The Leaf is a pretty crude BEV. It certainly isn't Tesla-comparable as a long distance vehicle. The battery pack/system technology just hammers the battery longevity in the Leaf. I have seen quite a lot of evidence (which I don't have to hand) of Leaf owners doing the Tesla-stretch when replacing t...

Re: Barclays suddenly expensive

Chris, what are Barclays charging you for your regular investment account (non-ISA). if you have one? Thanks. Barclays fees are charged on total investments over all accounts. There's no specific extra charge for an additional non ISA account, but the overall fee may increase if the total invested ...

Re: Musk endeavours

The car that did well in this mkt sector was the Nissan Leaf. It had very poor everything in terms of batteries & motors & for these reasons depreciated like crazy & is now being heavily out sold. Quite possibly, things and tech move on. But don't try and tell me the people who used to ...

Re: Musk endeavours

In the developed economies large amounts of the population have enough disposable cash to indulge the human instinct for love of the best. In the developing world, where there are far more people, some of them are just about the reaching the point where they can buy any car. And in the developed wo...

Re: Musk endeavours

VW do have a fan club, all the folk who believe they are buying a reliable state of the art shopping cart or a best of the best Audi. Not long ago BMW was the poster car for petrol heads This is where I think your thinking on Tesla's future market is wrong. You are quite right that the current Tesl...

Re: Musk endeavours

The car was slow by modern standards, has limited range and looks and has the feel of the 20th century, a great car for folk who live in the past and think things never change. I don't know what this means, just about any car produced today is more than fast enough, and I see no sign that roads wil...

True, but equally investors probably shouldn't allow themselves to be influenced by Musk's clickbait either, and that is a lot more worrying coming from an "official" source

dspp,

That presentation is on the HUR website, in the technical library, which has apparently recently appeared.

Re: Musk endeavours

If it has all of the features of a Tesla it will be hard for VW to make it much cheaper than the model 3 unless they sell at a negative or very low margin based on the tear down analysis of the Tesla model 3. The difference is that VW is a well managed company with lots of resources, both financial...

Humans also have a lot of other things that no driving assist, or whatever you want to call it, has or is likely have anytime in the foreseeable future. Assisted driving systems are an attem...
