That's what insurance is for. :)

Isn't insurance for Tesla models more expensive than their luxury ICE counterpart?

Probably. Not a current Tesla owner... maybe one of the TI ballers can answer that. :)

It's more expensive if you look at national average. But it's because of large price discrepancy between different insurance companies.

Tesla also started selling its own insurance last year (currently only available for Californians) at 20%-30% below national market average.

Tesla's new insurance also provides a rate discount on several portions of your overall premium based on your car’s level of autonomous driving capability.

Here's a good article on this subject

I'm paying about $2000 annually for 2 Teslas with a good driving record and no points. I don't think it's too bad. Even if ICE luxury cars were cheaper to insure they are way more expensive to maintain and fuel cost.

back on topic regarding insurance
i was previously in a basic c300 (maybe $40k)

with covid-19 i was able adjust the miles driven to 5000/year so that helped alot
with the performance model y (almost $70k), my insurance went down about $60 every 6 months so I'll get a credit..
so i think it's a mix of less mileage with maybe good crash tests.. I'm a happy camper  ;D

Tweet out by Elon,

Oh, oh, good buy Testla. See you in TX.

@elonmusk
Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependen on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA.

I wouldn’t mind following them to Plano/Frisco/Prosper.  Weather sucks but people are way nicer and the new neighborhoods are pretty awesome.  The spec homes there (standing inventory) already include lots of good upgrades.  Property tax is high but but no crazy Mello.

It's good to have F-U money.  I think Musk is making a threat and the county will blink.  He has reasons to stay put too.

I don't think it is a empty threat. Musk has a history of knowingly doing things against his own pecuniary interest to make a point.

Without everything that has happened in the last few weeks/months,  having your only factory in Fremont is quite odd. The are having to shuttle workers from central California because most of their factory employees are priced out in the bay: https://www.protocol.com/silicon-valley-tech-shuttles.

I think we are a few years away from them moving manufacturing away from Fremont. Let's not forget that the China factory has just started and I'm not sure they manufacture anything else than the M3. The Berlin factory has not been built yet. Fremont manufactures all 4 Tesla models and for having visited the factory (I highly recommend it) they invested a lot of money in it.

Not saying he wouldn't leave.  There are pros and cons.  He's on the cusp.  If the county walks it back I think he'll stay.  I don't think he wants his business HQs to be too geographically diverse.  He might be toying with the idea of moving everything to TX, but the space vehicle talent is largely in socal, so that's a big consideration.

So does that mean that he has a spot already lined up for his factory either in Nevada or TX? With permits and production line already ramped up and filing out cars and trucks? Or is it another charade because productions of cars not meeting expectations. Moving is not that quick like packing a luggage and jump on an airplane and off you go.

And perhaps the most important thing is, will TSTL stock drop tomorrow because of his tweets?

Tesla already has a presence in Nevada with the Gigafactory.

It would not be hard to set up something in Texas.

But I doubt Elon would close Fremont.

He has no problem making cars in tents.  I'm sure more than a few cities/states would roll out the red (green) carpet.  Pity the workers laboring in a tent in the heat and humidity of [insert non-CA name here].
