A friend has a Tesla X ...what a POS. CV joints went out at 5K mi.. The car is not even in Beta state. The car is so hackable so insecure it's dangerous. He cannot drive from Austin to Dallas because everyone on I-35 goes 80 MPH or risk being rear ended. The Tesla X has a range of less than 100 mi @ 80 mph ....
It's an open secret in Detroit that Tesla's quality is $hit, made all the more frustrating by the fact that the "experts" on Wall Street think they are the most valuable auto company on earth.
I read the other day that none other than 'ol Vlad Putin said electric cars are dirty. Of course, he owns several oil companies
