morekaos still thinks Teslas cost over $100k.
I hated it when Tesla used to give you the price including tax credits (and gas savings) on their website as default. You would have to click on another tab to see the ACTUAL price. Really misleading.That video is a little misleading as it bakes in the 7500 tax credit. I’m guessing most folks on this board don’t qualify for the tax credit.
The new Fed Credit requirements are so restrictive... not sure if anyone buying a $47k car will qualify (or should).That video is a little misleading as it bakes in the 7500 tax credit. I’m guessing most folks on this board don’t qualify for the tax credit.
I know they don’t cost under $30,000.00 like they said they would…and they never will🤷🏽♂️morekaos still thinks Teslas cost over $100k.
I agree.. I’m impressed the prices are similar to or better than what they offered in 2017/2018 given the inflation since then (though they have cut some costs in dubious ways).Interesting how these normalized back to more sane prices.
…Per quarter for a grand total of $3,000,000,000.00 For 2023…or over $5,000,000,000.00 over 22-23…great plan, they will probably join Lordstown on the pyre soon…Great earnings report today for Ford. The EV unit only lost $722M...!

Average pickup cost is $60,289. Even the pretend matchbox trucks are north of $40k$30k? That's so 2019.
For the first time since separating its electric vehicle (Model e) business unit, Ford has detailed the financials behind its electric vehicle programs and confirmed that its EV business is currently generating 40% negative margins.
A Twitter user tweeted this fact to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who actually had words of encouragement for Ford:
Musk has often shown respect for Ford – highlighting the fact that along with Tesla, it is the only other US automaker that never went bankrupt.“Always tough with margins for new vehicle lines, especially when there are major technology shifts. I think Ford’s overall strategy with EVs is smart. The electric F-150 (Lightning) has high demand.”
A guy in my group has been leasing Chevy Bolt for years and that's without free charging at work. Unfortunately, Chevrolet is discontinuing it, so he has to look for something else soon.if I get free charging at work, does it make sense to just lease a Tesla or some cheap EV's? it will offset some of the fuel cost.
