Andrew LevyThey won’t be able to keep this up for too long says former GM CEO. He’s probably right. The Model 3 was supposed to save them and it’s not working.

Orin O'NeillThe trucking industry has not recovered from the Crash of 2008. Nobody will be spending six figures for electric trucks when used tractors sell for less than a new F-150 or Silverado.

Robert Cumming36,000kg isn’t that great, how much is the actual payload? I suspect the batteries weigh a lot. Trucks in Europe usually have a maximum gross weight of 40-44,000 kg and up to 60,000kg in Sweden, I don’t see this being much of a success. The fast charge is with a 400v mega charger those won’t be that common for a long time.

Jim CuthbertTesla's mission is not to make best EV, or to make profit. But to make transport sustainable. Hard to argue that Tesla's intervention hasn't changed the market, and made the mission all but inevitable. With the legacy auto already in the EV truck market, Tesla just needs now to pose threat of better than they imagined would be enough, to encourage legacy auto to raise its game quicker than they would otherwise. Likewise, in the bus sector which is also in Tesla's top secret strategy part deux. Definitely a question about the investors, and whether they really understood how high risk this enterprise is, and Tesla needs to do everything it says. Also about whether Tesla really needs to keep on going. I suspect Musk can't stop himself. Each new challenge has to be done, to prove the vision is possible, as well as necessary.

Joseph SiddallWhy do I get the distinct impression that Tesla is actually a prototyping company that builds a few cars in it's spare time?

Guillaume Kalfonha ha ha, promised for 2020, so it might come in 2022, maybe, so some gullible rich guys are going to give $50000 now in the hope of getting something 5 years down the road from a company that's hemorrhaging cash? :) :)

Edward M. FioreElon is just another Preston Tucker. The difference between Tucker and Musk is that Elon has US government funding behind him and his automotive pipe dreams. It would be nice if our government spent its money on important things, not on Elon.
