Clearly, pricing is not an issue. The Chevy Bolt, which many complain is too expensive, was outsold more than 2-to-1 in November and YTD, only 2,408 have found owners.

  1. Why not get in touch with reality – those Model 3 “monthly” or “quarterly”or “yearly”
    sales are really sales accumulated over the past 2 1/2 years. And that waiting list is drying up
    and Tesla is losing its $7500 govt buyer’s tax credit subsidy. An competition has already alowed competitors like Jaguar rip Model S and Model S sales to shreds in European countries. And it has a waiting list. Tesla is in a terrible competitive position
