    1. You are right. Turns out a real car is much cheaper to operate. Unless you can get free power somewhere.

      Tesla Model 3 Costs More To Charge Than A Gasoline Car

      Investors who take it for granted that electric cars are cheaper to run, need to think again.

      A comparison between Tesla Model 3 and the three leading hybrid cars of calendar year 2018 from Toyota, Honda and Hyundai proves otherwise.

      At the current typical Supercharger price of $0.24 per kWh, a Tesla Model 3 is $0.06 per mile. At the current gasoline price of $2.65, the 50+ MPG hybrids are $0.05 per mile.

      Then you have to add that the Model 3 has at best half the range and takes at least 10-20x as long to recharge that inferior range.

      Of course, the Model 3 also costs twice as much, and you have to assign an approximate $1,000 per year to battery depreciation, alone more than driving on gasoline for a year.

      1. So what. Drive up in a new Tesla, and the progressive women will race each other in tearing their clothes off for you.

        You didn’t think they wanted them because of global warming, did you?

        (Progressive women are the reasons women get a bad rap.)

        1. Yeah but even more than just women. In a word, “STATUS”. $300.00 sport shoes (made for about $3.00) are all about status. “Designer jeans” = status. Alligator above your shirt pocket, status. Tesla in your driveway, status.
          I’m thinking this guy is not going to get a lot of sympathy from anyone.

      2. But, but, but … by driving your electric automobile you are polluting OTHER PEOPLE’s neighborhoods with the necessary power generation … not the air over Palo Alto. So cost of operation isn’t the operative impulse for driving electric. It is the transfer of pollution … into poor peoples neighborhoods. THAT is the motivation for caviar eco hippies to drive electric. That, and they HATE the automobile.

      3. but the virtue signaling dwarfs the obviously wasteful rich elitist persona that goes along with the car…he he

  1. OMG he is resorting to twitting. Oh no, anything but that. What’s your plan C genius? You got what you deserve, pity taxpayers had to subsidize it.

  2. I don’t know who is more gullible, Tesla investors or Tesla buyers.

    Buying outright a car before seeing it or inspecting it? Test driving it?

    Jeebuz, he deserves the trouble…….

  3. Your Tesla is self-driving itself to your garage … isn’t that kewl!? Remember, your Tesla isn’t like your ollllllld gas-powered car … Tesla is really cutting edge technology!! Although … there is a strong probability that your Tesla is burning on a gore point at the Hwy280 exit off Hwy880. The painted shoulder lines have worn off at the exit … causing your Tesla to embed itself in the guardrailing. And you DID know how the battery (your entire car chassis) is highly flammable and burns uncontrollably ? Surely the Sales Associate made mention of that?

    Cal Trans doesn’t have the $$$ to maintain CA Fwys … even WITH the added $0.12/gal. Increased gas tax. Seems there are MORE Cal Trans workers receiving retirement $$$ pensions than there are Cal Trans workers actually working. And Jerry has diverted 70% of the Cal Trans budget to “Light Rail” projects … because Jerry wants you OUT of your car … and onto the choo choo train.

  4. Calling Tesla a car is a bit of a stretch, it is a package of laptop batteries on wheels, covered in at thick coat of virtue and powered by taxpayer cash.

    1. So, Musk managed to produce almost 2200 roller skates a month for Jan and Feb. A far cry from his boastful prediction of 10,000 per, at one point, he promised 20,000 per, HA! Yeah, he will perform amazing magic tricks, any day now cuz he promised he would.
      Would Huckster say anything else? The Ponzi scheme has to keep being fed by the Head Shyster himself.
      Even the fanboys are turning on him, like Steve Booth of driving.ca, a certified Glowbull Warming disciple.

  5. Typical big government modus operandi.
    Step one: latch onto crisis
    Step two: if no crisis, create one, then latch on
    Step three: ride in on white horse with expensive unworkable infeasible solution ( ie profit)
