I work in Fremont. Teslas are a dime a dozen. Probably 20+ of my customers own Teslas. Let's see what shape the company is in a year from now. Then I'll consider seriously buying one.

Yeah, expressed similar concerns on the UK but with respect to the SuperCharger network . . . which may become (more widely) available if Tesla starts experiencing liquidity issues.

I live in San Jose, Model 3's are basically the camry's of the Bay Area. Can't go more than a minute or two without seeing one, my office garage has gone from zero to about 20 in three months time. Which is part of the reason I'm a current Jag owner and have an order in for the i-pace--I can't stand driving a car that is so common.

Yeah the Tablet on Wheels is beginning to outnumber the Model S and the falcon-winged minivan here

BTW, there's yet another review (on Roadshow) of the 3, this one focused on the performance edition, that again laments the challenges of a user interface that can only utilize a single touch-screen

The Europe models can all be ordered with a tow attachment that can tow up to 750 kg / 1650 lbs. Can the US model not be ordered with a tow hook?

Regardless, get yourself an I-Pace. I had little to no experience with EVs before I got mine, both my wife and I love it. The only problem you may end up with is keeping it away from your wife

When there are enough I-Paces in the USA, the aftermarket will make hitches for it, even if Jaguar won't sell them. Chevrolet does not sell a hitch for a Chevrolet Volt, but we have one.

Today, you'd just have to order the parts through a non-JLR source to put the hitch on the US I-Pace.

Personally, there is not an EV made that would handle my towing needs. Not even close. You want to tow a car trailer and car with a Model X? Good luck with that, even if it doesn't destroy the MX, your charging problems will be severe. You are not going to towing up the Grapevine at 75mph, or to racetracks far from major cities (many are).

Might as well.....

Planning - that's a good thing to think about. There's a semi and a new roadster planned. We've seen prototypes of them. So where will they be built? Does Tesla have the capex for these?

So let's jump out with a couple more plans. A pickup and a model Y.

See where this is going?
