Title: Tesla Master Thread
Post by: CS1 on November 15, 2018, 08:34:34 PM
This is fascinating -- especially since these multi-level glitches came from an actual high-tech company:  https://www.dansdeals.com/more/dans-commentary/went-tesla-delivery-hell-tesla-giving-control-site-forums-1-5-million-tesla-account-contacts/

The best part would be if your whole "Dan'sDeals" name was on listed as your user ID their forums instead of just "Dan". This would be huge PR and exposure!

Was a beautiful, but then again wacky story.
 I enjoyed where he managed to wipe the forum clean.
Can you imagine he accidentally wiped the forum on ddf clean? I can't.

 Was a great story, im sure there's more to the story then what dan disclosed, as dan didn't really say much to what happened after he told them about the data breach.
Yes he got an email...

 Surprising that a company worth a few Billion $ can't have a group of IT ppls who are managing the forum and making sure the sites are secured and well protected from a regular consumer breaching into their system.

The company has been applying 110% of its focus and manpower on Model 3 production. I assume delivery and customer service will improve once they manage to sustain these levels of production. Certainly the last thing on Musk's mind is the silly forums.

Considering that the issue was dealt with, I'm not sure how much leverage Dan has. Even if they make him take the post down and sign an NDA to get the payout, the story is already out there and will be old news in a few weeks.

If the goal was leverage, than Dan not publishing anything and selling the story back to Tesla before publication may have been the better move.

traffic is great. What makes this scenario so humorous is that Tesla is an very large super-high-tech company. They are ready to take on the world with new engines, state-of-the-art-transport, and promote space travel. Therefore, being on the receiving end of these tiny coding glitches and not dealing with them efficiently is that much funnier.

we were driving back from Brooklyn to Lakewood on the 440 and the SUV in front off us kept on swerving very close to the divider, we passed him and of course we noticed his two hands were on his smartphone.

the next morning heading from Lakewood to Brooklyn on the gowanus expressway we were trying to move over to the right lane as we needed to get to the exit, a bunch of impatient people didn't let us in, finally the Tesla let us in, I get excited when I see a Tesla so I turned to the side and I see the driver with both hands and his smart phone not even peeking on the road, with auto pilot set, turns out that the auto pilot stopped when it detected that we are trying to move in, cool!

Agreed.  Did a test drive of the L3P last week and its a rocket (30 to 80 in 2sec!). Tesla had 4 L3P with my configuration avail immediately from local SC. No waiting.

EAP behaves best on Highway drive, gets confused on city drives.

That 3750$ credit is not the same as a Discount. You have to file your tax return and you must have a federal tax liability that meets or exceeds the incentive amount. Its not immediate.

Ask a tax professional about potentially filing for the  credit earlier. Another factor to consider is that in states with sales tax, you pay sales tax on the full amount prior to the tax credit.

I took delivery of a Model 3 on Dec. 26th. I had to get a second 30 day tag over-nighted to me last week. When I called the local service center, they said the state DMV was backlogged and they had no way of tracking the permanent one. I called again today to follow up on the permanent tag and was told I should be receiving it by end of the week because they sent the letter requesting it to DMV a day ago. I expressed disappointment over the fact that they didn't bother submitting it for over a month and was rebuffed with a lame excuse over how busy they were with December deliveries and a sob story over how many registrations they had to request. Not even an apology for the inconvenience (and apparent oversight). Mind you that where I live I would have saved a meaningful amount on toll roads with an electric vehicle decal (which is unavailable to 30-day tag holders).

Nah, once they take over the world I think service will get better.

They are a 15 year old company that only started turning a profit last quarter. They are way over their head with demand for thier superior product. Once the sales become a steady number everything should even out.

What do you want them to do? Hire temporary employees for just the next year? Train them in time for them to be fired?

Todays announcement indicates that this might be possible

I'm just surprised they actually save money by only having the big battery pack and limiting it in software over assembling two different battery packs. The marginal cost of each cell must be less than the cost of labor or something.

Tesla is preparing to offer Model 3 leasing to boost demand

Tesla sent an email to employees this week to let them know they will be able to lease Model 3 within the next two weeks

https://electrek.co/2019/02/19/tesla-model-3-leasing/ (https://electrek.co/2019/02/19/tesla-model-3-leasing/)

Historically leases for Tesla has been very expensive. For reference on the S and X below. I would expect the 3 to be similar.

ē ⁠0.002396 money factor (5.75% APR)
ē ⁠acquisition_fee: $695
ē ⁠36 month residual: 49% 15k miles, 50% 12k miles, 51% 10k miles
ē ⁠24 month residual: 54% 15k miles, 55% 12k miles, 52% 10k miles

Residual already includes the federal incentive.
Tesla doesnít have a captive finance arm to shift losses.

Instead of selling "Enhanced" Autopilot for $5k in advance of delivery, it's now called "Autopilot" and is $3k with an option to pay up an additional $5k for FSD, which includes some (useless IMHO) features presently available in EAP + others that will be available "later this year".

Summary of changes Tesla announced on 28 Feb 2019

Model 3 Standard-Range is now available to order for $35,000.

Tesla releases a new Model 3 version called 'Standard Range Plus' for $37,000 with a partial premium interior.

Model 3 LR is now back. It was discontinued when Tesla introduced the Mid-Range version.

The price of Model 3 Mid-Range, Long Range AWD and Performance versions have dropped by $2,900. MR starts now at $40.000 instead of $42,900. Long-Range AWD at $47,000 instead of $49,900 and P at $58,000 instead of $60,900.

Autopilot is now $3,000 instead of $5,000 and it is now called just 'Autopilot' instead of 'Enhanced Autopilot'. 

Cost to add FSD increased from $5k to $7k

Model 3 Performance has a top speed increase to 162mph from 155. The 0-60 mph time has dropped from 3.3s to 3.2s

In a blog post today Tesla says they will shut down all of their stores and switch to online sales only. They will keep a few locations but those will be converted into galleries instead of stores.

If you are not happy with your purchase, you can now return the car within 7 days and 1,000 miles.

Its both. Snippet from Tesla 8-K below.
 
Quote
Shifting all sales online, combined with other ongoing cost efficiencies, will enable us to lower all vehicle prices by about 6% on average, allowing us to achieve the $35,000 Model 3 price point earlier than we expected.

Over the next few months, we will be winding down many of our stores, with a small number of stores in high-traffic locations remaining as galleries, showcases and Tesla information centers. The important thing for customers in the United States to understand is that, with online sales, anyone in any state can quickly and easily buy a Tesla.

At the same time, we will be increasing our investment in the Tesla service system, with the goal of same-day, if not same-hour service, and with most service done by us coming to you, rather than you coming to us. Moreover, we guarantee service availability anywhere in any countries in which we operate.

Not entirely accurate. EAP, which used to be available for $5,000 pre-purchase, is no longer available. Instead, a pared back version called Auto Pilot with fewer features is available for $3,000. Some of the EAP features have been moved to FSD, which is available for $5,000 (requires Auto Pilot purchase).

While it wasn't included in the core announcement, customers who already have EAP will keep some of the features now part of the FSD package (Navigate on Autopilot, Advanced Summon and Parking Assist) and have the option to upgrade to FSD for $3,000.

This video is good at explaining the various groups that were created by the pricing shift (2018 buyers, 2019 buyers, EAP vs non-EAP, FSD) and costs to upgrade to each depending on your delivery date.

For right now, yes. But, don't forget, the mega car producers have been developing and preparing competitors for about 5 years now. Their development process is a lot more disciplined than Tesla. While that has some cons compared to Tesla's more rapid development pace, there is a big upside to that orderly process. Much better reliability, and less over promising, and what you see is what you get.

The Model X looks decently spacious. Link: https://www.tesla.com/modelx It doesn't have a 3rd row, however it could possibly work well for families, strollers, etc...

Yes, I monitor this site to gauge M3 resale values/depreciation. Mainly private sales. Lots of used, low mileage for sales. Brokers also post and/or buy from this site.
You get to see the Monroney sticker price, which is very helpful.
Final sale price is usually 10-20% lower than Advertised price.

Phones get slower and laggier with every update.
I've yet to experience that on the Model 3. In fact the opposite is true, my car can now go faster and accelerate faster than the day I got it due to software updates.

Obviously it's not worth more money. But it's more valuable to me.

Since initial purchase, have you had to get any service? I've not, but not looking forward to it.  I also find the price fluctuations annoying, but have much more peace of mind now that I no longer follow their news updates.

Looking forward to planning a road trip from FLL to Quebec in our Model 3 (MR (disappointing that I didn't wait a month to get a LR for about the same price, but don't get me started!) next month! DW is particularly looking forward to trying EAP on a long-haul road trip.

So, i'm working with a family member to assist them in purchasing a new Tesla model S. I personally would go for the model 3 because I feel the bang for the buck is significantly better, but he feels that the model 3 looks too much like your standard car. lol.


Anyhow, was about to pull the trigger on an inventory Model S (Savings of approx 10k) however it just came to our attention that the new "raven" update with the upgraded suspension and battery gives a nice range update...

Anyone can assist?

Thanks!

Dont get me wrong, I'd love a Tesla. I love the idea behind it, the clean look, and the super functionality.
But it still looks like a rescue dog - no matter how sleek and clean it looks it still has that funny look.
It's a quirky look.

But then I guess maybe that's what he's looking for.

Ya, I agree the 3 is better, he went and test drove the s the other day, he couldn't get over the 3s look (felt look too much Toyota like lol) but I think i sold him on the 3 performance and everyone is telling me it's a better car

Not hard at all. I would have a very hard time going back to ICE at this point. Driving the Tesla is a real joy, everything else else feels like a cheap toy.
I'm sure one day there will be real competition, but Tesla has quite the lead.

Why not take a 7 day trial before the credit is halved?

Because even if I like it, itís not worth literally 2x the cost. I can get an i8 lease for that price

I can think of better things to do with 10K than to shave a second off already ridiculously fast acceleration.
Additionally I've read that the 20Ē Performance Wheels don't perform as well in snow and over potholes as the 18íí Aero Wheels on the AWD.

I'm not exaggerating.

60k MSRP 440 - $350 with 0 DAS (10k/36m)
40k MSRP base model 3 - $399 w $5594 DAS = $554
56k MSRP 3 LR w/ EAP - $653 w $5848 DAS = $815

And it's always better to lease w 0 DAS since if the car is totaled, stolen, or you want to trade it, you will lose the DAS. Tesla (online) doesn't let you decrease DAS.

Why lease? Make more selling yourself when you're done anyway.

Also I wouldn't buy EAP. AP is just fine until they add more functionality to EAP.

That's a risk. And I'm of the opinion that leasing is a better option if:
1. You like driving a new car with limited maintenance
2. You are able to stack incentives and dealer discounts on a high residual value vehicle
3. Bonus points if the manufacturer (e.g., BMW) inflates residuals heavily

At 350/month, that's a 12k cost over 3 years. You think your model 3 won't depreciate by that much in 3 years? And that's aside from the interest you will pay on financing the vehicle (or $ you could have earned investing the cash)

Edit: To add, when a car has a high residual value, the incentives you can apply are much more valuable in a lease than in a purchase.

Worked out very well for me last time, though I kept the car for 8 years. If you must have a new car every 3 years, that's fine I suppose. But that's mostly just marketing convincing you that's something worth doing. Otherwise you would keep a car until it needs enough maintenance that it becomes a hassle or unsafe.

Also need to factor in the $3.75K rebate into the math as well as gas savings.

If you need to have a new car every 3 years and lease, sure.
Personally I'm perfectly happy riding out my M3 for years to come and eventually sell it.

What I love about the M3 isn't just the acceleration though. It's the clutter free cabin, the fantastic app that means I go key-free, the instant torque, etc.
No reason not to try it out for a week and see for yourself. Good MS opportunity too ;)

Thanks! Ya, I was under the impression if one did a test drive they were not eligible, looking around online seems like they changed that a few months ago.

So now he's definitely ordering the model 3 - the big question remains if he should upto the performance or not. @Dan you said you felt that it was not worth 10k, for him though he definitely likes the look of the 20 inch wheels better (though obviously if one is price conscious it will cost more over time). Also those red breaks look real hot:)

One big thing I'm thinking is that I wonder (gonna research this now) if the Non performance long range has more range, I see that they all say 310 miles, but I know that they played with the #s a bit so people wouldn't just not go with the performance.

Agreed, I would have gotten the white interior if it was available.
fully fully loaded with every option is under 63k now

interesting. Supposedly it'll keep going up. I saw one "expert" claim it'll be worth 50k one day. It's essentially an investment with the hopes that sooner than later it'll be functional (as a self driving feature)

If it ends up as fully self driving and Tesla successfully starts an "uber" platform it can possibly be worth quite alot.
But if other car companies become successful in making their own level 5 self driving then it'll bring the price right back down.

right. Also keep in mind that the FSD obviously goes based on the car not the owner.... So, can't hold the stock for a few years:)

They should have it that if you trade in your car you keep the FSD level purchased...

Bunch of #fakenews hot garbage.

You use your Tesla over Bluetooth, not over the app. If your Bluetooth connection is bad then you use your backup key card (or key fob if you bought one). Only if your Bluetooth isn't auto-connecting and you don't have your backup card that you should always have would the app being down make any difference.

The app being down should have affected nearly zero people. But it's Tesla, so it goes viral.

Why in the world are they opening their app to drive their car? The Bluetooth key works flawlessly and doesn't require that you take your phone out of your pocket. And if your phone is dead you would use the keycard, not the app!

In general Tesla will be more expensive to insure as they are more expensive to repair. Insurers have t really gone done in liability due to new safety features but that may change in the future. Regardless collision /comp often exceeds liability for high msrp cars.

My 13 month old car can now accelerate 10% faster than it did last week and it has an awesome new hold mode for one pedal driving.

What new tricks did your 13 month old car learn this week?

Pretty cool. OTOH my Camry learned how to not make the list of the 10 least reliable cars on the market. Maybe it can teach Elon Musk a thing or two.

True, the model x is the one that came out way on the bottom of the reliability list this week. The model 3 has had inconsistent reliability rating although at the moment itís back to recommended.

ďModel X owners reported numerous problems, ranging from its balky falcon-wing doors (that open vertically) to noises and leaks, and it  has worse-than-average reliability.Ē

Still says something about how musk is running the company. Show me one Toyota model that ranks rock bottom.

The model 3 has two thirds less the amount of parts to break. Come back when your cars transmission and alternator will never need to be fixed.

Seriously though your best bet is probably to hold onto the Tesla for a few years and then trade up to a new model. I somehow doubt a 10 year old Tesla is going to maintain its condition like a 10 year old Toyota.

Part of which by the way is contingent on continuing to avoid paying road taxes forever. That's not likely to last as more EVs replace gas vehicles. It's just a temporary tax loophole for the rich(er).

This is a little silly. Can we all admit that the Tesla cars have some very beyond cool features, both inherent as a electric car, and from the different mindset of Tesla, while at the same time, suffering from deficiencies in reliability and attitude towards customers (and for the time being, very few mechanics available/very scarce part availablity to repair their parts)?

Tesla has confirmed its plans to enter the Israeli market. Two weeks ago, Tesla registered a subsidiary of Israel under the name Tesla Motors Israel.

Israel requires that the company registered in Israel be the importer. This is contrary to Teslaís business model to sell their vehicles directly to customers.

In addition, Tesla aims to work in Israel also in renewable energy sources, in particular solar energy.

Is there a big demand for Tesla in Israel ?

It will all depend on pricing, but there is definitely a market for electric here. As of now there really aren't a lot of mechanics who have any experience with electric, so it's probably not the safest purchase. But if Tesla comes in with the infrastructure for that, I think it will be a big hot

Stripped down in what way?

I just got myself a good lease deal (effective $135/month everything rolled in after EV rebate) on the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq electric. I'm very impressed with it. Almost the same MSRP as the Model 3, but Teslas lease horribly. Hyundai does throw in a lot of features at the base model, and it definitely has the effortless drive of an EV.

That's assuming you don't do a lot of distance driving. I bought the model 3 and as much as liked it the range was a real issue so I returned it.

Did you get extended range? How long was it IRL? Is it that much less than a tank of gas or does charging just take longer or not enough stations?

I got the standard range. If you charge to the recommended 90% and drive faster than 55 mph would be lucky to get 180 miles on a single charge. On my car I get over 500 miles per tank... Also, If you are like me who relies on hotels destination chargers, what happens when you get to the hotel on a almost empty battery and the chargers are taken?  As fun as the car is to drive it is very impractical for long distance driving. Supper chargers take a lot longer than filling up a tank, they are not everywhere, and can be at times all taken.  Also, keep in mind electric is not free, charging at home isn't cheap at least here in CA. If you do city driving and have a garage it's a no brainier..
Title: Re: Dan's Tesla Thread
Post by: Dan on July 03, 2020, 06:20:06 PM
Why didn't you get extended range if you needed it?
Also, there's nothing wrong charging to 100% the day of a trip. The problem is letting it sit full on 100%.

Scary stuff in this Twitter thread.


Quote
1/ Whatís it like starting an anonymous Twitter account in an effort to expose a powerful billionaire of malfeasance? The simple answer is this: Donít do it. On the occasion of todayís new all-time high in Tesla stock, I felt it might be instructive to share my story.
2/ I started this account in Feb-2018 as a social media experiment. I wondered if combining crisp data charts on a highly polarizing stock might capture a decently sized fintwit audience. As @georgia_orwell_ can attest, I assumed I would run out of material in a month.
3/ Much to my surprise, the account found its niche and after a few months I had something like 4-5k followers. I enjoyed the banter, even the back-and-forth with various bulls. I hadnít blocked a single account and took pride in that fact.
4/ Then this happened, and everything changed. Mind you, I have never shorted Tesla in meaningful size. This was never about an investment for me, I have been very clear on this point from the start, etc. Nonetheless, I was to pay for expressing my beliefs.
Image
5/ What follows is a partial list of things that have transpired since then. First, my Twitter account received so many hacking attempts that it was suspended by Twitter Security. I then implemented two-factor authentification. Granted, I should have done that from the start.
6/ Shortly thereafter, my personal iTunes account was hacked, despite the fact that neither my iTunes email or personal cell number were associated with this Twitter account. Coincidence? Iím not a big believer in coincidence. Putting that genie back in the bottle was tough.
7/ An entity with which I have a professional association received anonymous electronic communication implying that continuing to associate with me would not be beneficial to them because I was TC. The people running that entity know Iím TC and blew it off.
8/ A few days later, their internal email system was hacked. The hackers impersonated employees of that entity and tried to wire significant sums of money to an offshore account owned by the hackers. Coincidence? Iím not a big believer in coincidence.
9/ The forensic investigation into that hack is ongoing, but because the hackers did not succeed in stealing any money (the people running the entity were on high alert and intervened immediately), Iím not hopeful the perpetrators will be found.
10/ I noticed this car parked outside my home. I know the cars on my secluded street. This car didnít belong. There was a male in the driverís seat. I observed it for several minutes. I took this picture and started walking towards it. It sped off before I could get a plate.
Image
11/ Same story with this car. The rear door was open. Odd. I took this picture and started jogging toward it. Off it went.
Image
12/ This Model 3 very carefully scoped my house. There are no Tesla owners in my neighborhood. Trust me, this is something Iíd know.
Image
13/ This Chevy SUV scoped my house. Based on the plate (not shown here), it was a rental car.
Image
14/ And on it goes. The moral of the story is this. Donít mess with the powerful members of our society. It is a losing endeavor. My story is nothing compared to what Tripp, Balan, Hansen, and countless others have gone through, but I sure can sympathize.
15/ Our cultural rot runs deep. I personally donít plan to give up. F... it. YOLO bro. I have the resources and the stubbornness to see this through. My time will come. Trust me.

Horrible when you consider a similar MSRP Hyundai Ioniq EV is close to free with current incentives. They're not the same class car, but that it exactly my point. The Hyundai leases much better because of incentives, while the Tesla is not even close. Purchasing price will be close.

50k Tesla 3 leases in NJ similarly to 50k bmw or Mercedes.

Of course not going to lease as good as a vehicle still getting 7k fed tax credit, but itís MSRP isnít as inflated as it was because of that.

Not quite. Unless you get a really bad lease deal on those BMWs. $35k Tesla doesn't lease anywhere close to a $34k Ioniq. Right now, there's $14,000 incentives for that, so even taking out $7,500 from the tax credit, it's still not close. Besides that you can negotiate selling price of the Ioniq lower than MSRP by a couple of thousand. Residual is slightly better on the Tesla, but interest rate is also high. All those make it much more expensive to lease.

I'm not talking about if it's in the same league or not. It's not.

You are saying it leases horribly because you can get an ioniq for 1/4 of the price. And he's simply saying that if you evaluate it based on a car of its caliber it leases just fine. An ioniq has nothing on a tesla. If it's not in the same league you can't use it as a comparison to say it leases horribly.

The difference is that the Ioniq is made by a traditional car manufacturer that throws a bunch of incentives, plus lower interest rates, plus discounts on the purchase price as mentioned above. Tesla doesn't do that, so it doesn't lease well. That's all. I'm not comparing the 2 cars to each other. I'm comparing the similar MSRPs with vastly different lease prices.

Agreed, but that is what gets compared. The whole industry is like that. Then you have to figure out who gives bigger discounts, but that's on the individual dealers, and incentives and interest rates that change every month and are different in every market, etc.

Tesla is the only one that doesn't have that. Not saying it as a fault, just saying that it's very different.

Not quite. Bolt has better performance and better range. Ionic is significantly wider and longer and is much more practical as a small family second car. The bolt is too small to be anything more than a one person car. Ioniq is also more comfortable and has more features thrown in as part for the course for Hyundai.

As per Teslaís website it looks like Teslaís ordered after 2018 actually come with a 1 year free trial of premium cellular connectivity and Teslaís ordered before them come with free cellular connectivity for life. I wonder if you can decline the free lifetime/trial premium and go WiFi only. Wonít stop you kid from driving out to the nearest free hotspot but better than cellular.

I'm nearly ready to take the plunge and order a Model 3 but have a few questions if anyone can please chime in, it would be appreciated.

  • I commute long distance for work and while there are plenty of chargers on the way, at my destination they seem to be extremely limited, how much battery do they lose over 3 days with minimal driving?
  • I plan on getting long range, how realistic is the range and how much does it really lose in the cold?
  • What is the difference between the 18" wheels and 19", I like the look of the 19" much more but read something about not being good in the snow?
  • Do I need a wall charger for fast charging at home (and is that included with the car?) or do I just need to get an electrician to install a 220v?
  • If I don't pay for the full self driving, what exactly is included on the auto pilot? Will my car be able to drive itself (in one lane) for long highway distances?

Thanks

1. how far is the commute? Really depends based on temperature outside, also keeping sentry mode on may make a difference if there is constant movement around the car.
2. Depends on how efficiently you drive, I like to enjoy the acceleration of the car so I don't get close to the full range, I'm not sure exactly how much is lost in the cold but it is quite significant (maybe 20%?) although it is supposed to be improved with the new heat pump they added.
3. Not sure the difference in the snow but the 18 inch have aero caps on it which help boost range, also I believe larger tires are less efficient overall
4. I do not have a wall charger, I use the mobile charger that came with the car attached to a 200v NEMA 14-50 outlet. You may need to buy the 14-50 attachment separately now (not positive).
5.

The $10k wager is a nice way to hedge a bet on the stock.

It seems the acceleration was the bigger factor here.

Seems to me like he started accelerating before his hand touched the car. Nevertheless remarkable.

Not necessarily, unfortunately.

Locked door?

If you just enter your car and are still parked, is your door locked?

When I put my car in drive I think it automatically locks. Also, I always lock my car when I am just sitting there

CMIIW, but I think most cars don't lock until you hit 20MPH or so.

Teslas can be in Drive and at a full stop without needing to hold the brake. Not sure if it locks at some point or speed.

True unless the car was never put in park.

Is there any filtering options for the screen?


I was told that there is a full browser with open internet access on screen in the Tesla and that TAG has no way to disable or filter it, so if I my teenager drives the Tesla he can simply park and enjoy unrestricted access to p**n onscreen. Thatís a real dealbreaker for me. Thereís a lot I would do for convenience and an enhanced experienced but not at my kids expense. (Not that Iím comfortable trusting myself with unfiltered internet, and that itself would probably be a dealbreaker, but giving my kid the car plus unfiltered is kind of like give him money and putting him in front of a בית זנות.)

Is this info accurate? Has anyone fount a workaround to address this? Thanks.

I just checked if it's in valet mode the browser's inaccessible ( you can also put a speed and acceleration limit on)

Tesla just reported first-quarter vehicle production and delivery numbers for 2021. In total, it delivered 184,800 vehicles and produced 180,338 cars.

Analysts were expecting Tesla to deliver around 168,000 vehicles during this period, according to estimates compiled by FactSet as of April 1. Estimates ranged from 145,000 to 188,000 deliveries.

Tesla's latest delivery numbers represented more than a 100% increase from the same period last year when the company first began deliveries and volume production of Model Y. However, Tesla Q1 deliveries increased by just over 2% from the quarter ending 2020 when Tesla delivered 180,570 vehicles.

That's incredible.

They're a great company with an insanely overvalued and unjustifiable share price.
