LOL - tell yourself whatever you have to to choke down the massive government subsidies that Musk receives. I'd like to see one of these companies actually support itself instead of depending on Obama and the Democrats to keep pumping dough into them to keep them going, but we all know that's not going to happen.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

Being a US company, Tesla is mostly subsidized by the US Federal and State governments, but we all end up subsidizing electric cars.

Here in BC, we do it mainly through the CEV program which offers thousands of dollars to subsidize the purchase of battery or fuel cell powered vehicles. Then, more public money is used to install charging stations.

Once the switch is made away from buying gasoline, electric car owners can avoid the several hundred dollars per year in gas taxes that the average family pays, money used for roads, bridges and mass transit.

Sweet.

The CEV program does not offer rebates to ALL battery powered vehicles, just some (effective March 2016).

"Public money" is not funding Tesla Charging Stations.

Does anyone know what actually happened in the Kelowna accident. Was the Tesla the cause or was it collateral damage. Are people putting too much confidence in their cars.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

At this rate? You mean 2 accidents in a matter of months?

I guess that's why we never see Fords, or Hondas, or Hyundais, or chevy's or Dodge, or Mazda, or Mitsubishi, or Subaru, or any other brands of cars ever made on the road anymore.

How many Teslas are in Kelowna right now? Not including the ones that are still on the dealership lot. 4? Maybe?

Bumped

Looking at the charging station map, anything east of Lethbridge and your SOL or BC north Kamloops also SOL

I'm only talking about Supercharging station, not the slow as molasses in January ones. lol
