Betting Against Tesla Is Betting Against Yourself

To the average American, Tesla is just another topic in the news alongside China, Trump, the weather, terrorism, national disasters, local sports, and celebrity gossip. They have their morning coffee, rush to work, and glance at the news on their phones. Actually, many Americans work rotating shifts. Those shifts may begin at 9:00 PM at night — and they may not have time to catch up on the news. Unless someone is exposed to Tesla via a customer, fan, or shareholder, they will often only know from what they hear or see in the news

Tesla Fan Illustrates Elon Musk’s Vision For A Futuristic Cyberpunk Truck

At Tesla’s Shareholder Meeting, Elon Musk said the company’s pickup truck will look “cyberpunk” like it’s come from a “sci-fi movie.” He added, “We’re trying to create something new and it’s not just basically a copy of the form factor of everything else … I think it’s the coolest car I’ve ever seen.”

Chart: Electric Cars Cutting Gasoline Use By Hundreds Of Millions Of Gallons A Year

As every Tesla driver knows, electric vehicles are more reliable, more convenient, cheaper to operate, safer and more fun to drive than legacy vehicles. However, the most important reason for the transition to electric driving is to reduce the use of polluting petroleum products. As EVs proliferate, consumption of gasoline is expected to fall. It’s still very early days, but that trend is already observable

2 Species Of Luxury Vehicles: New-Age Tesla Model 3 vs. Old-World Mercedes C300

The term “luxury” means different things to different buyers. As auto reviewer Henry Payne writes in The Detroit News, some luxury goods are highly detailed and ornate (a Rolex watch), while others offer the elegance of simplicity (an Apple watch).
