Sort of puts Samsung's $7.6 B investment in its Austin fab in perspective. Making processors for phones is far harder and more expensive than making cars.
They were the best selling luxury vehicle in North America in 2013, the year after they further increased their market share. So yes they are making a killing in terms of grabbing market share of the luxury car market.
Anyone who has been following the Gigafactory would know that was part of the plan, when those other car companies come knocking for batteries guess which factory they are going to turn to.......The Gigafactory! It is really the only factory that exists that can even come close to meeting their demand and has a history of creating batteries for vehicles in such numbers(or it will at least). Elon Musk has said he wants to Tesla to be more thought of as a battery company not a car company. Why should Toyota or GM spend billions of dollars on building Gigafactories of their own when they can let Tesla take all the risk?
Are you kidding? It was a dead on satire/mocking of your comment.?
And as I said above, Tesla isn't making a dent in the high-end segment. Not even close.
Right............That is why they are the number one selling vehicle in the 70k to 120k price range in North America and growing.
They did. The MacBook. Air’s on its last legs.
