This is news "because Tesla"? All the automotive companies are doing similar.

Heh, I went back to the beginning of this thread and it’s kind of funny now.

When this thread began in 2015 who would have thought that little Tesla would end up delivering a million cars and Nissan would be on the brink of collapse in 2020?

The irony.

Unsure myself but glad to participate!
Nio also moved in a very similar fashion while US Auto was down a fair amount.
Maybe China money; seeing how well Tesla is selling in the biggest auto market. Nio also had a good month (for them).
Maybe investors seeing that Tesla will come out of this COVID-19 better than legacy auto.

Still moving up after hours. This is a big move.

I never paid any attention to Tesla until the Model 3 price range. Last Oct I picked up a 2016 Leaf SL with a dying battery at 21.5K miles. When it triggered the battery warranty was when I learned about about Nissan being on the ropes. I got concerned because I dropped the car off 30 Dec 2019 and they really stalled and stalled because they say the new battery list price installed was $13K and I was like so what. Thankfully I had started my claim thru a national Leaf rep. She sent some emails and I picked up the car 12 Feb 2020. The 30 kWh battery pack was replaced with a new 40 kWh battery so now I have a 150 mile range went the dying one was down to about 60 mile range after on 38 months on the battery. It was an off lease car so I have no history. Hard to tell but this one seems to lose 1% of State Of Health about every 100 days so far so it should make it fine for 3-4 years and hopefully a used Model Y will be in reach by then. I am sad about Nissan since I have been driving them since 1973. I think this bat virus issue is going to make a successful turn around plan very hard. Other than the short battery life I love this Leaf but I can not stop reading about Tesla and SpaceX. :)

Wait until they break into the truck market. I'm sure some will cancel reservations but many like me want one but haven't put down a reservation. I want to see it first and I never buy the first model year. But trucks in America are huge. If they really hit 500 plus EPA miles with a heat pump in the same price range as a f150 platinum....

I’m really curious to see how that things sells. Not my cup of tea but clearly there’s enormous interest and they shouldn’t have any trouble moving 100k units a year.

At some point in time I expect new ICE truck sales to drop before Tesla's truck hits the market due to delaying buying decisions just waiting to see truck live and up close.

Now that I have been driving the Leaf for 6 months I hope I am never forced to buy another ICE vehicle.

Tesla reported a small profit in the "seasonally weak" first quarter, despite the shutdown to operations in March. Cash and cash equivalents increased by $1.8B to $8.1B.

Q1 Tesla results

Not too bad, under the circumstances. Q2 figures to look pretty ugly, however.


I was interested by the pictures on pages 15 and 16 that showed the simplification of the rear underbody of the Model Y versus the Model 3: 2 pieces of metal versus 70 pieces.

Haven't had time to follow but it was bizarro their stock was up after hours to $876.

Maybe they lost less $ because they had to stop production at Fremont due to our Bay Area shelter at home orders? Build fewer cars == lose less money? ;)
