Ted Taylor"Granted it’s not a proper S-badged car but its 0-62mph time of 6.4 seconds won’t worry a Golf R, while Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 drivers will simply leave you in their dust. Still, at least you won’t have to look at a GLA 45 anymore."
Just laughed so hard I spit oatmeal across the room. Hilarious.
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.

Ian WaltersWhy is 0-60 important for trucks. Musk is an idiot
Barry QuinnBought the X90 after many years in successive Range Rover Sports. At first I really loved it. Especially because it was so much cheaper. But 18 months later I want out.
- the gas mileage is equal to what my 510 hp SC V8 got while towing an enclosed aluminum trailer with my Lotus 211 in back. That’s is awful.
- the ride is crashy without the air suspension. You really need that option. Sounds like the Alfa will have the same problem.
- it feels like a big mini van.
- infotainment is excellent
- the seats are great. The truck looks great. But it’s utility, not special.
It's the Pope's Lamborghini: yes, Sant'Agata really did give His Holiness Pope Francis a Huracan this week - and a RWD one at that. It's not the new Popemobile, but rather a gift to auction for charity ... See moreSee less
Sajid WahidWith fluids it will weigh about 1600 kg. How is this progress? The upcoming TVR Griffith will be 300kg lighter with a better power to weight ratio. It will also be smaller & because Gordon Murray designed it probably better packaged. What is Aston spending its money on?
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.

Ian WaltersNice... Tesla trying to divert attention away from current production problems?
