Tesla will build the charging infrastructure when they begin selling in India. In every country they sold their cars, the supercharger network was installed as well. All that govt of India should do is to provide more incentives for people to buy electric vehicles.
No. Which is not surprising since no one else, including all the major manufacturers with R & D budgets orders of magnitude greater than Tesla, are equally unable to do so. Tesla itself is only profitable thanks to the money they take in
I feel Tesla is well ahead of Faraday future in terms of commercializing their products.Faraday future is keeping stuff in the beta prototype stage or not starting a full scale production like TeslaFor the public to accept the car for the price the company claims, the car should be reasonable
Generally, the manufacturer isn't the problem. It's dealers. Dealers make all their money from parts and services and a little from car sales. EVs offer very little to dealers in terms of parts or services. There's no oil to change. Brakes last a WAY longer because of regenerative braking. The only fluid that need to be
Who knows for real. I personally think that no, as this was mostly a political move and Musk is for Tesla what Steve Jobs was for Apple. It is possible that the history will repeat itself and Tesla will ask Musk to come back when they will loose the market.
Excuse me. Tesla is foremost an automotive company. It was first named Tesla Motors.Apple's been the subject of speculation for a long time. It would be a hoot if GE made an electric car.
Yes they can put updatable firmware in cars and they have for many years.The ECU's have flash memory and the programming can easily be updated with the manufacturer's scan tool. The updates are downloaded from the internet and installed in the vehicles. They are for specific problems with the functioning of the component involved.
I have a series of blog posts for new EV owners that covers the typical things new EV owners need to know like charging, planning road trips, driving dynamics. Its part of a program our Tesla Owners Club has for new owners: Co-Pilot Manual - Electric Moose
Because the Tesla Model X was did this Watch: Tesla Model X tows plane, breaks record - CNN Video tow a 287,000 pounds. Obviously the two hitch had to be reinforced but the motor is just the normal X's
The answer is very simple: If you run a new company, you have to decide at one point how you want to sell your product. If you decide to set up a dealers network, you demand something from your dealers. They have to set up a show room, train mechanics, maybe put spare parts on stock and so
The Model X - more info and a video of Elon Musk unveiling the car can be seen here on their website:http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/...It should also be noted that Tesla is taking reservations for the Model X with deliveries planned for early 2014. For a mere $40k you
There is little left to add from all of the other answers, except that certain terms tend to broaden in meaning as technologies evolve.
As others have said, it's amazing. It has exceeded my expectations and I can't imagine going back to a regular car.OverallIt does a shocking number of things very well. It's fast and handles well. Yet it's a big sedan that is a
Tesla is a publicly traded company that is traded on the Nasdaq stock exchange (Tesla Motors Inc). This means that the owners of the company are the collective shareholders who have purchased stock in the company. You could be a partial
The goal of the whole launch was to test the Falcon Heavy rocket and demonstrate to potential customers that SpaceX could successfully launch heavy payloads into space. Musk admited there was a greater than 50% chance that FH would explode at some point, so
Even though there are now over half a million Tesla cars on the road, Tesla is still small for a car company. Look at any established car company and you will see a broad product line covering every market niche. Tesla has just 3 models. Yes there is more coming, but it
Nope. You can't negotiate with a web shop, and that's the only way to buy a new Tesla. The Tesla stores aren't actually stores, they're showrooms where you can get help with ordering in the web shop if you need it.With regards to buying "certified pre owned" or demo cars, Tesla
Here's two answers.The first includes deductive reasoning using publically listed numbers. In 2014, the second full year of production of the Model S, they built 32,000 cars for the entire global market. In 2014, the factory alone employed over 8000 people. They also have a
There is only one way to buy a spanking brand new Model 3 and that is from Tesla itself. Since Quora is an internet service and you posted the question here using the internet then you already possess the ability to initiate a brand new Model 3 purchase.If you
Tesla is really a difficult company to attempt financial analysis on. You have to consider how much they are investing in things like a network of charging stations, a giga factory, autonomous driving capabilities, home solar power storage solutions, and how little time they've had to fully leverage

India has companies like tesla !!India is going through unprecedented transformation as a nation. It's turning into a product economy from a service economy. We are no longer looked upon as an outsourcing destination for availability of inexpensive software talentIf
We don't know yet.From a Fortune article on the announcement:Here Are Important New Details About Tesla's Solar RoofSolarCity's Rive also said that the company thinks it can get to a solar cell cost of 40 cents per watt over time at large scale, which is competitive with current commodity solar panels. But Rive said
Chevy Bolt has a 60kwh battery does 0–60 in 6.5 seconds and starts at $37k with a fully loaded model for $41k. Sure this is above the opening price point of $35k for a Model 3 but Tesla won't be shipping entry level cars for a while as their cash flow issue continue. Tesla is
Its all because of the crazy billionaire CEO of both companies. He's the hardest person on this planet to work for and is seen as a replacement of Jobs atleast to some extent.P. S. I don't despise him, but I look
Will the Tesla Model 3 be able to charge on the Tesla supercharger network for free, forever? If so, how will Tesla deal with the increase in demand?
Having almost two years and Tesla's official announcement pass since this question was posed, we can make a better answer. Tesla has said the Model 3 will have hardware for supercharging. Enabling the function may be an uncharge.
Tesla has no dealerships. That is, honestly, the biggest reason that buying a car from them is so pleasant.They do have showrooms where you can look at a car and arrange a test drive. There are people there to answer your questions. But all sales are made via the web site.
As an investment it does not make much sense. It is unlikely you will sell your car at a higher price in 3–4 years, even if its market price suddenly doubles.Unless maybe if you keep it as an investment only and don't use the car. A used car loses value, and an eletric
You don't need an SUV and the Model X is hardly an SUV. If you need an SUV because you need ground clearance to get to your cabin in the woods, fine, but look elsewhere, the Model X is not
No one can answer this accurately, for you. You have to answer that for yourself. You should not base your opinion of value on what anyone else says.Do your own analysis. Always. I don't care if you are buying cutlery or a car. Get educated on the product and make your pros/cons
Waymo is not a direct competitor with Tesla's main line of business, manufacturing electric vehicles. Waymo is rather a technology company for self-driving cars.Both Waymo and Tesla are developing self-driving technology. Waymo's technology is advanced and credible. So far as I am aware, Tesla has
Try googling different websites and checking for vehicle warranties. You can save plenty that way. Also try reading other people's stories on how they have made it more cost effective. Don't buy a car from a random website do your research and always make sure
An entire Model S? I think you need to model it subsystem by subsystem. Pick one function, like the braking function, and see if you can get all the interactions up and running in Simulink. Don't be surprised if you have to wait overnight for some of the calculations to complete.This is how modern automobile
Out of Google, Tesla, Uber, Lyft, Cruise, which company's self driving car is most likely to be available to consumers if there were no regulatory barriers?
Your question needs a minor adjustment:
At the moment, pre-orders are closing in on 300K.If Tesla manages to build 300K in its first model year (which is unlikely), it will have a chance at breaking into the top ten for US auto sales. In 2015, #10, the Toyota RAV4, moved 315K units. The #1 seller, the Ford F-Series, sold 780K examples.
I don't know anyone who's against them as such.But Tesla in particular is expensive, they generally have a limited range, access to charge stations is equally limited, charging takes longer than refueling, what'll happen to them on the used market is anybody's guess.
As unconventional as this may be, I'd like to propose that you ask a different question?When you buy a Tesla, you get the Tesla AND a network of charging stations that, in the US alone, looks like this.
None. Its systems at present are limited to driver assistance and convenience features.
The future... This is the car that has been and is moving humanity away from fossil fuels. While there have been a lot of other cars that have shown the concepts viable (most notably Tesla's other offerings of Model S and X and of course the original roadster), the enormous pre-demand
It depends on your homes orientation to the Sun. If you want to most energy you can produce in a day one face of your roof should face South and have no shade from tree's or other shade. Also if it's a new home and these will be lifetime roof tiles it's really
Zero. Tesla's threat is BMW and VW making better and cheaper EVs in much larger numbers. But that is exactly what Elon wants to spur. For him, it is a win-win situation, since his goal is not personal dominance or wealth, but rather to help a more swift change to non-polluting vehicles.
Most major manufacturers, in Europe anyway, are committed to introducing electric models, and cars like the Jaguar e-Pace have arguably caught up with Tesla already.
Instead of looking at that story, it would be best to look at stories about Tesla on Seeking Alpha going back many years. Their predictions have been just as dire all along, and consistently wrong.You can go back to 2014 and
Which graduates (which engineers) do companies like Apple and Tesla hire for their electric car projects?
Historically, companies like Tesla and Apple want talent. A degree is nice but they want to see passion and knowledge about what you are going to be working on.An example of this is Brian Bjelde, an aerospace engineer who joined SpaceX in 2003 and became VP of Human Resources. Growth
