Re: Kevin McCloud (Grand Designs) apologises for delays in housing project

Re: Musk endeavours

I think there is sometimes too much made of the so called disruption element of the Tesla story when referring to the sales and after sales process. My understanding of the US situation is not great but from what a read/watch on you tube the process of buying a car in the US from a dealer is signifi...
