Another Tesla executive chimes in on $25,000 car cancellation claims

Teslarati

Another Tesla executive has responded to recent reports that the $25,000 mass-market vehicle is no longer being planned, following CEO Elon Musk’s denial of the claims. Last week, Reuters reported that sources had told it that Tesla was canceling plans for its $25,000 electric vehicle (EV). Musk went on to deny the reports, literally saying that “ Reuters is lying (again),” with he and Tesla later announcing plans to unveil the upcoming robotaxi on August 8, 2024.

Software Sucks, but It Doesn’t Have To

Cars That Think

You can’t see, hear, taste, feel, or smell it, but software is everywhere around us. It underpins modern civilization even while consuming more energy, wealth, and time than it needs to and burping out a significant amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The software industry and the code it ships need to be much more efficient in order to minimize the emissions attributable to programs running in data centers and over transmission networks.

@Peter Klausner In reply to Peter Klausner. Biased on the promised sales success of the ET5, may be. ONVO is too late, because of too fierce competition. And, the sub-brand is a huge mistake. The small Mercedes A-class could benefit from the image of the larger models. Although, sub-branding might be thought of being the method to distinguish from the failing main brand.

Or selling their A-Class, a small car. Which could benefit from Mercedes fame. NIO has no profit, selling few cars, brings the downsized cars to the market too late, against fierce competition.

1000 km cltc so realistically wltp will be 800km but to be more precise we can say 600km. Now we can convert to miles which will be 372. But more like 350 considering cold conditions. So don't expect any amazing numbers compared to other cars. By default always go with wltp. I know I'm being very conservative here. But better to be realistic than be fooled by the 1000 km cltc range.
