I believe that is about what a Model S does, and Bolt does it for half the price. With the news that came out this week, anyone that still owns Tesla stock is one brave investor!

Well, the sky is falling for the EV evangelists in Ontario, as our newly elected has cancelled all of these taxpayer-funded programs the previous team was "offering", which included such wonderful incentives as giving millionaires $14,000 rebates on their Model S smirk They are of course claiming that the environment in Ontario is going to quickly decay into a coal-fired wasteland that resembles Mordor because we are no longer paying people to put in new windows, buy smart thermostats or in general, just look after their houses. Something they are apparently incapable of doing without somebody else funding it smirk

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/teslas...-hit-2017-07-06 This clown is nothing but a big B.S. artist. All he needs is a plaid suit and a cigar. And stick him on a used car lot with naked light bulbs and streamers.
Remember his April Fool's tweet where he said the company was going into bankruptcy? It's one warning sign after another with this guy.

Musk has had troubles recently. None of his companies are in the headlines which usually invoked Pavlovian responses from investors. As one company’s stock price rises, Musk sells shares in order to purchase shares of his other companies when they are lower. He has been playing this shell game but the pea has disappeared. Without government contracts and subsidies, he is toast. His latest pie in the sky company, Boring, is getting some press but how many cities (taxpayers) can afford that system? He does have a visionary mind, no doubt about that, but his business sense is more like Charles Ponzi.

Think about it for a moment. Rockets. Solar power. Electric vehicles. Big tunnel boring. Fast surface transport in vacuum. Everything Musk does is aimed at colonizing Mars. He doesn't care whether the business makes money here on Earth, so long as the technology can be used to get to Mars and live there. He just needs people to keep throwing money at those businesses until he can leave the planet.

Funny how socialism trains people to think like that.
