You have been negative on EVs and Tesla in particular since what price? Oh never mind.

It's good that Elon Musk is getting the PCR test. It was the obvious next step when he had conflicting results from the less accurate antigen test. It's not surprising that he didn't wait, or mention PCR when complaining tests were "extremely bogus."

Elon Musk has consistently downplayed the seriousness of Covid. He doesn't want it to interfere with production in Freemont. He shares his denial and affinity for Twitter with the President. Now, like the President, it seems he has it. Hopefully he won't need oxygen, Resdemivir or Dexamethasone. My guess is, like the President, he'll downplay its severity.

On the contrary, I was an electric car backer since 1986 when I was BP Oil International's gasoline market strategy branch advisor.

But I like thinking not religious affiliation.

It amazed me that petrol cars remained competitive for another 36 years. And STILL are much better.

Here's an excellent customer review of Tesla. youtu.be

I first shorted TSLA when it reached $336. Then covered at about $229 if I recall right. Then again at $1100 after Elon sold heaps at $770 or so. But then irrational exuberance sent it soaring so I doubled up at about $2200.

I'm with Elon that TSLA isn't worth that, which is why he grabbed $,billions more. Now he has a huge stack of cash.

Now we wait for Buffett's rule that in the long run the stock market is a weighing machine while in the short run a gambling machine.

Let's see the return on investment for a few years competition etc

It's funny that you mistakenly think I'm against electric cars in general and Tesla in particular.

BTW, I invented Hyperloop 20 years ago ... you can read it right here in SI. I didn't use that name. Elon copied my design a decade later.

And I was wanting to cover Australia 26 years ago in photovoltaic = just in case you mistakenly think I hate them. BP Solar wax big in photovoltaic 33 years ago.

And wayyyy back in 1984 I solved CO2 as a problem. And invented a power station solution in 1986.

Its a bit like young people thinking they've invented sex (and a lot more besides). It has been going on for a long time.

Why don’t they install the Megapacks inside a building or at least under a roof, where they have some protection from weather? Usually they are shown installed out in the open, where they are exposed to temperature extremes, and maybe heavy rain and snow, depending on the location.

They do use different cabinet designs depending on local environmental requirements.

Doesn't seem as crucial as the headline sounds:

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on Monday it was upgrading a probe into nearly 159,000 Tesla Model S and Model X vehicles over touchscreen failures to an engineering analysis.
