Was good to see Tesla hitting a 52 week high today.

Greenie investors making profits. Niche markets are everywhere.

Nobody buying Tesla's except the well to do. Regular folks not interested.

Simple measure....next time you are driving, count the # of Tesla's you see then count the # of conventional cars :eusa_dance: :eusa_dance:

Leaving California for Texas was good for them and their investors.

Gotta love Texas.... celebrating the company that is working to make them irrelevant.

You guys are so fucking stupid.

Since petroleum has a hundred year head start what else would it be?

Wrong as always, troll.


The first electric car in the United States was developed in 1890–91 by William Morrison of Des Moines, Iowa; the vehicle was a six-passenger wagon capable of reaching a speed of 23 kilometres per hour (14 mph). It was not until 1895 that consumers began to devote attention to electric vehicles after A.L.

Just like your fellow DemoKKKrats, you're stuck in the 1950s. Texas is all about agriculture and technology now. Exactly what California used to be good at.

LOL

The only thing that makes Texas remotely special is petroleum and more idiots per capita than most nations.

So, let us look at the figures. Most high end EV's have a range between 250 and 350 miles per charge. We will assume a large battery, a 100 kw/hr battery. Average that at 300 miles per charge. So here in Portland, Oregon, at the current cost of electricity;
Time of Use rates also include a 0.722 cent per kWh credit for the first 1,000 kWh used.
...
Pricing periods.
Time of Use periodOn-peak
Time of Use price12.380 ¢ per kWh
Basic Service priceUp to 1000 kWh: 6.329 ¢ per kWh > 1000 kWh: 7.051 ¢ per kWh
Time of Use periodMid-peak
Time of Use price7.051 ¢ per kWh

Charging at night, you can charge your battery for $7. 05. My minivan gets about 25 miles to the gallon on the highway. So for those same 300 miles, that is 12 gallons. At $3.50 per gallon, that $42. $7.05 versus $42. Quite a difference. That article is clearly a lie.

LOL California is still the fifth biggest economy in the world, outstripping Texas.
