Please, I totally can. I don't need to know the exact ruling to know something has a level of legal obligation any more than I need to know what legal level of murder the intentional death of another is.Please, you cannot on one hand admit you don't know what the legal standard is in this exact situation, and yet...
https://www.yashlaw.com/false-pricing-or-overcharging.htmlI'd need to see the text of that law to believe it.
My original claim, that you took exception to, was that Tesla is not legally obligated to sell the Cybertrucks for the prices announced in November 2019.Please, I totally can. I don't need to know the exact ruling to know something has a level of legal obligation any more than I need to know what legal level of murder the intentional death of another is.
There's a bunch of laws on this, covering even shelf prices, which is why I know it exists, as I was working retail when it passed.
Further, it's important to recognize that the pre-order agreement is not a purchase agreement- as explained here:Pre-Order Price, Taxes and Official Fees. The pre-order price of the Vehicle will be confirmed in your Vehicle Configuration and Final Price Sheet. As you may have only configured part of your Vehicle, any pre-order price provided to you in advance of the Final Price Sheet is only being offered to you as an estimate and is subject to change.
The reason this does not legally obligate Tesla to maintain the estimated pricing is because it is not an order for a product, it's a pre-order and the potential customer is allowed to cancel at any time before they complete the final configuration of their vehicle and recieve a full refund. After a customer completes the final configuration of their vehicle it will become an order, at which point Tesla would be subject to certain legal obligations to honor the price provided. In reality, they could still change their mind and refund your deposit, but that may incur some additional legal obligations because it was no longer a pre-order.Pre-Order Process; Cancellation; Changes. After you submit your completed pre-order and the options you selected become available in production, we will invite you to complete the configuration of your Vehicle. We will then issue you the Vehicle Configuration and Final Price Sheet based on the base price of the model and any options included or that you select. Your Pre-Order Payment covers the cost of these activities and other processing costs and is not a deposit for the Vehicle. Until your Vehicle is delivered to you, you may cancel your pre-order at any time, in which case you will receive a full refund of your Pre-Order Payment. Until your final configuration is matched to a vehicle, you may make changes to your Vehicle Configuration.
you know what they call a lawyer at the bottom of the ocean ?Not to mention the 200,000,000 they have held on to and made interest off of for 4 years. It could look really bad if they priced the truck where it is unreachable for most of us and way out of line with what was represented to those 2 million people that gave that 100 dollars for the right to order.
That would be a argument lawyers would gladly build a class action case around.
It's true, in that, they're not wedded to the exact price.My original claim, that you took exception to, was that Tesla is not legally obligated to sell the Cybertrucks for the prices announced in November 2019.
And that is true, otherwise ...
