For Tesla Fanboys I guess. I'll believe it when:
They actually shows up on the streets in large numbers
It's been around for a year at least
Independent reviewers get a good look at it when used for long distance camping pulling a 15,000 pound camper over Utah Hwy 12 between Escalante and Torrey
There are zero reports of spontaneous ignition

Musk has erected from Tesla you know


Let me guess, when Elon said that he’ll produce a full electric vehicle, you are the first to say it can’t be done.

And when he said, that Tesla could drive from coast to coast, you said it’s impossible.

Then when countries in Europe said that it will be zero tailpipe for them come 2035, you ran to the hills screaming, we are all doomed! lol

Battery capacity is 100 KWH. Assuming 80% efficiency it would take about 60 hours to recharge with a 2000 watt (continuous) generator.


I can't imagine why someone would want to do that unless as an absolute last resort. A Tesla Model 3 can take up to 3 full days to charge on level 1 charging, and a Cybertruck has a much larger battery. So probably close to 100 hours of charge time. A generator that can support level 1 charging (at least 2kw continous) burns about 1/4 gallon an hour. 25 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles (takes about 1kw/hr per mile to move an RV down the road at highway speed) equals four miles per gallon. Not exactly great fuel economy. [emoticon]

And I have stock in GM, GE and Colgate, doesnt make me a fanboy of any of them. Tesla likely has a great grocery getter for the city folks who want to pat themselves on the back about how great they are. Much like the Hollywood types who brag about the Prius cars, that their maids use to buy their groceries for them.
Whether or not they are worth anything in the real world is still under evaluation.

That's why I love Tesla. It's in constant improvement and innovation -- and they install it on their units even if already sold.


Kind of like...any other concept car (which all the automakers do)...there's always updates and changes from the concept car you see at the auto show and what you see for sale at the dealer.

Look at the recent Ford Bronco introduction. Some of the early concepts and ideas changed as they moved from pre-marketing to actual production.

If you're in Texas, Tesla is not for you, your very very long extension cord is useless.[emoticon]
