Tesla set to be number 1

Tesla set to be number 1

Postby maryjane48 » Jun 28th, 2016, 5:32 pm

On the face of it, the companies seem to pair pretty naturally. Tesla last year released a set of batteries, built on the same technology that powers its vehicles, meant to store excess energy produced by solar panels or wind turbines. Dubbed the Powerwall, the units began selling this year to homeowners and utility companies that use the devices to store power produced when the sun is out or wind is blowing for later use.


now according to this article , even power companies use the tesla powerwall. tesla is headed to be the biggest company in the world . the whole story is worth reading .

Thanks to the virtual world of the amazing Elon Musk, we can fuel cars with government subsidies instead of petroleum. :smt045

Musk has proved so adept at landing incentives that states now compete to give him money, said Ashlee Vance, author of "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future," a recently published biography.

Once the charge lenght (meaning km's driven) is comparable to my current vehicle, then I may consider purchasing electric vehicle. Not until then

no one is asking you to . these car makers are well aware of what it will take for mass switch over . but it is coming . the good thing is a gas car will rise in value as collector items .

Tesla driver killed in crash with Autopilot active, NHTSA investigating

A Tesla Model S with the Autopilot system activated was involved in a fatal crash, the first known fatality in a Tesla where Autopilot was active. The company revealed the crash in a blog post posted today and says it informed the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the incident, which is now investigating.

The accident occurred on a divided highway in northern Florida when a tractor trailer drove across the highway perpendicular to the Model S. Neither the driver — who Tesla notes is ultimately responsible for the vehicle’s actions, even with Autopilot on — nor the car noticed the big rig or the trailer "against a brightly lit sky" and brakes were not applied.

Because of the high ride-height of the trailer, as well as its positioning across the road, the Model S passed under the trailer and the first impact was between the windshield and the trailer. Tesla writes that if the car had impacted the front or rear of the trailer, even at high speed, the car’s safety systems "would likely have prevented serious injury as it has in numerous other similar incidents."

Tesla falls as feds investigate fatal crash of Model S in self-driving mode

Tesla Motors Inc. TSLA, +0.99% stock fell in the extended session Thursday after reporting that a Model S car in self-driving mode was involved in a fatal crash. Tesla said in a blog post that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating Tesla's autopilot feature after a Model S using the autonomous-driving feature was involved in a deadly crash in Florida. "It is important to emphasize that the NHTSA action is simply a preliminary evaluation to determine whether the system worked according to expectations," the company said. Tesla limited autonomous features in January after several videos showed drivers performing unsafe acts while their car was in autopilot mode, but has also increased the number of cars that have some autonomous features. Tesla shares fell about 3% in late trading Thursday.



. . . maybe hold off on that Tessie

How many cars does tesla have on the road? AND How many years have they been there? Compare those numbers to major, long standing auto manufacturers and find the ratio. *removed*
