I didn’t need to read any articles to know this, but here’s another, anyway:

The Bloomberg report was on the front page of the LA Times Business section. This is the first positive article about Tesla in a very, very long time.

That graph makes it look like Tesla sales are going down, while Etron sales are going up, and eventually the Tesla line will slope underneath the Etron line. Even though, Tesla sales are only going to increase. Very well written piece of trash by BlowBerg.

Yet, amazing how pronounced each end of quarter is on the graph....

Interesting article.

“You really have to be someone who doesn’t like Tesla ... in order to go for [an I-Pace].”

Media seems to be more Tesla friendly recently. I think Tesla has earned it.

Wow...
This didn't take long after the "good news" in the media today about the new Tesla solar panel "rental programs"

Timing kinda smells...

there certainly is a smear campaign.....

I am not a Lawyer but you don't usually file a lawsuit until after talks to mitigate your damages are almost gone and mediation attempts are exhausted.
This will be interesting (and telling) as it unfolds...

Maybe they plugged the panels into a NEMA 14-50 with 16 awg wire and a 40a braker.

Is Jaguar offering that $3000 incentive to their loyal customers, too, and not just to Tesla conquests?

@TND,

ha ha ha ha ha nope.

“Many of the problems stemmed from a rushed, negligent approach to the systems’ installation,” Walmart said. “Tesla’s predecessor-in-interest -- SolarCity -- had adopted an ill-considered business model that required it to install solar panel systems haphazardly and as quickly as possible in order to turn a profit.”
If so ,my questions are why wasn't this settled out of court and was this suit filed on the day there was "good news" being reported on Tesla's new "rental program?

Not sure how this might enter into the mix of things;

Half baked implementation from these Tesla 'Killers'

Read this earlier and laughed...

Audi nav in the e-tron not only shows gas stations, but gives detailed information on them like current prices ect… I assume this is very useful to EV owners and drivers.. LOL

raqball, never know when you are going to need to fill up that gas can for the lawn mower....
