Tesla. The greatest electric cars that nobody can afford! Supposedly everyone globally is supposed to be driving an electric car by 2030.

Consider the source...liberally biased Bloomberg...they seem to hate all big tech companies. They dont report the facts or news...they give their liberally biased opinion...and that sucks.

The world's safest car in the history of cars is the poorest design according to this old guy.

So if it was Tesla’s motor in a Chevy, Ford, or bmw it would be great in terms of manufacture. I don’t know too much but I understand what this guy is saying. People want to argue why the weight is better, the more panels are better, and even why the more fasteners are better. Doesn’t make sense in terms of manufacture.

"Hur-dur the not-unibody is too modular, heavy and stiff." I'd like fur car bodies to be way more modular and corrosion resistant. But, we're talking about globo-homo auto companies though.

Neodymium magnets... very impressive, applauses lol, I have many of them for so many years and even a few headphones with neodymium magnets... Is that a big discovery? why wouldnt any other manufacturer use other type of magnets instead of neodymium since they are very powerful magnets and everyone knows that...

I wonder if the dude complaining about the Tesla body being overbuilt and too rigid realizes that Tesla model 3 has highest crash rating in history of NHTSA. Unbelievable.

Oh no would you look at that Tesla didn’t make their cars so a bunch of greedy corporations can mass-produce them in China it’s not a downside it’s an upside

If elon can build a rocket that fucking lands on a floating platform, im sure the stifness isnt a fucking issue. Your probably just jealous.

I'm really confused now on why the car uses permanent magnet? Basically it's scam. The motor has a short life span?

Why the hell would there be a near 40% dislike rate on an article simply reporting factual technical findings? I thought the info was great. There's some very weird people out there.

Ford is the master at mechanical theft. By the time they figure out how the electrical systems work, and reverse engineer them... TESLA will be 3 generations ahead. I for one... am happy to see Tesla do this well... and give it to Ford.

In motorsport's or basically anything moving, a stiff chassis is considered great. Not comfortable for all but it exceed's, the seat rail and cushy seat's can make the stiffness go away just as fast.

Tesla was before his time, something that everyone knew but only now do they begin to acknowledge his genius to help save our existence?

Tesla the man, got his math wrong regarding transmitting wireless power. But generally, yes, he was right and a genius and ahead of his time.

Having a body that isn't well designed for manufacture is exactly what you would expect from a company that started with zero background in manufacturing car bodies. They will surely improve. I expect the Model T had a few inefficiencies in its body design.

No no, we don't want higher margins. As a consumer I want those savings put into lowering the price of the car.

If it was made by Ford or Chevy... it would be sh***y car that cut corners and all cheap plastic.

This just shows that there is room for improvement. The cars will only get better and less expensive as Tesla continues forward.

Too stiff!? Too many parts!? I thinks they need to keep in perspective that it's a totally different type of car with very different set of issues. Like handling the weight of all those batteries, minimising road noise and handling tremendous acceleration safely. This isn't your grandma's Ka.

It cost more to build which is why tesla stuggled to make enough fast enough. Its inefficient design.

A battery and some motors?
Tailong 14 days ago
Did anyone get past the first minute of the video, this was nothing but praise towards Tesla, only criticism was that some parts are two complex for mass production and therefore building cost is too high, not only that but Elon has acknowledged this in the past and is working towards making the design more efficient for mass production.

This is American car company propaganda ........nothing more. Americans should get a free car from GM since they stole tax money to keep their criminal enterprises operating. Tesla wants to sell directly to the public and dealerships can't stand it. We don't need dealerships to purchase cars. All they do is Jack up the price and make it hard to obtain a vehicle.

In the times were in now why would you advocate any loss of jobs if someone is willing to employ people for any reason. Even if it's over engineering you're still paying man and woman to take care of their family.
