Tesla Motors’ Devastating Design Problem

The Story:

Tesla Motors’ lineup of all-electric vehicles —… apparently suffer from a severe limitation that can largely destroy the value of the vehicle. If the battery is ever totally discharged, the owner is left with what Tesla describes as a “brick“: a completely immobile vehicle that cannot be started or even pushed down the street. The only known remedy is for the owner to pay Tesla approximately $40,000 to replace the entire battery. Unlike practically every other modern car problem, neither Tesla’s warranty nor typical car insurance policies provide any protection from this major financial loss.

My response: Sucker!

Wait! I just remembered, Tesla got  huge government financing and all Tesla owners get almost $10K in tax rebates!!  Why that means…I’m getting screwed!!!!


Chu to Congress: We’re not interested in lowering gas prices

Chu specifically cited a reported breakthrough announced Monday by Envia Systems, which received funding from DOE’s ARPA-E, that could help slash the price of electric vehicle batteries.

Is there even ONE electric vehicle in the White House Red Shed’s fleet? Or are they reserved for the suckers?

Chu Lets the Cat Out of the Bag

Barack Obama came into office as an anti-petroleum crusader. He made no bones about the fact that he wanted gas prices to rise; likewise, his Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, explained that he wanted U.S. gas prices to rise to European levels. In those days, global warming alarmists were riding high, and the Obama administration accepted the idea that to prevent climate change, it should suppress production of domestic oil and gas, thereby raising the price of fossil fuel energy (gasoline, jet fuel, heating oil, coal-fired electricity, etc.) so that Americans would not be able to afford as much of it. This was, of course, a strategy for impoverishing the American people, but in those heady times, the administration considered that a minor inconvenience if not a positive virtue.

In case you didn’t get the point yet.
