Remember stats 101: It's not the extremes, but the shape of the distribution which drives a lot of statistics.Top 2%? How poor are people in the US?
A little. Because of course people respond to the cut by cutting their buying.Don't have the stats in front of me, but I remember the price of the model 3 dropping a little each time the credits phased out.
I agree with you about them pricing to meet the credits, but I'd like to point out that of course most of their price increases have been post-credit-phaseout. Their total number of units sold in the lifetime of the company has been exponentially higher post-credit-phaseout than pre-credit-phaseout. That means this benchmark is not really indicative of any meaningful intuition.And most of their price increase has been post-credit-phaseout.
max sedan price is 55k. That will help drive tesla's low end model pricing back down prior to all the increases. And maybe drive some motivation for finally doing that super cheap model they kicked the can on.Interesting the max price for trucks is $80,000. That could crush the competition in the truck segment.
The other interesting thing to me was a max price of $25,000 on used vehicles and bought through a dealer. That would help to incentivise people to buy new. This is very limited.
The prospect is unchangedWhat is the latest prospect for CT in Australia, I thought they were giving refunds?
Is it a LHD or a safety concern?
I was not implying that rhd was not safe. Just that it requires different parts than the lhd version which is more prevalent.The prospect is unchanged
The refund headlines were made up FUD
LHD a safety concern ? ,,, never heard of this one. Why would it be? Everything is mirrored and works exactly the same.
Nada, Neinte, Nothing has ever been an issue here.
And I doubt if there is an issue anywhere else.. Why would Tesla not eventually sell its products to anyone who wants it ? 'Accelerate the transition to clean energy' to me means delays would be as bad as it gets.
It is easy to get caught up in FUD, the premise is quite simple.. With such a long backlog, hard enough to service rhd countries, it makes sense to refund.I was not implying that rhd was not safe. Just that it requires different parts than the lhd version which is more prevalent.
Dang it I fell in the FUD trap.
@600000 there will probably be a climate denier in the Whitehouse and I will not get it either.UGH this SUUUUCKS the $7500 tax credit applies to bill of sale after dec 31st, 2022 and am supposed to pick this damn MYP up between Aug and Sep I guess I'M WAITING AGAIN (F U HONDA ACCORD!)
