Tesla has now made it official confirming that they produced 5,031 Model 3 during the last seven days of Q2.
Taking the skeptical side here: This does not mean that they can produce 5000 a week on an ongoing basis.Tesla has now made it official confirming that they produced 5,031 Model 3 during the last seven days of Q2.
That might work in the short term, but I don't think they can afford to sit on a large amount of finished inventory for very long. Suppliers want to get paid...I think they have huge lots full of model 3's already built but are allocating them in such a way as to avoid hitting the tax rebate cap for as long as possible.
In addition to standard registration fees, owners of vehicles fueled with natural gas, hydrogen, or electricity must pay an annual fee of $200. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle owners must pay an annual fee of $100
.. but EV owners use even more coal!
I always wonder if folks who say EV's are dirtier than gas cars know what generated the electricity that refined their fossil fuels so they can try to sum up that dirty-ness
WV etc power is cleaner than ever with solar and wind.
Coal-fired electric power plants accounted for 94% of West Virginia's net electricity generation in 2016, natural gas contributed 1.6%, and renewable energy resources—primarily hydroelectric power and wind energy—contributed about 3.8%.
@Bruce I was in agreement with you all the way up to the heat comment.
While I have no disagreement that electric vehicles leak heat, but there is no way under normal operating circumstances that EV's produce as consistently and as much heat as a standard ICE.
