      Interesting info I picked up re the Jag, Merc and Model S
      Apparently there is a very substantial tax break for vehicles above 6000 lbs in weight. (meant to help the truck market, trucks also have the assistance of an import tarriff of 25%
      Jag and Merc miss out Model S and X qualify

    Sorry to go a bit off topic, but what happens with this presidency does have everything to do with how the US will deal or not with GW issues and renewables:

    >> In the hours after the New York Times published the anonymous Op-Ed from “a senior official in the Trump administration” trashing the president (“I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration”), two senior administration officials reached out to Axios to say the author stole the words right out of their mouths.

    “I find the reaction to the NYT op-ed fascinating — that people seem so shocked that there is a resistance from the inside,” one senior official said. “A lot of us [were] wishing we’d been the writer, I suspect … I hope he [Trump] knows — maybe he does? — that there are dozens and dozens of us.”

    Just spent a well worthwhile 3hr 36min watching Joe Rogan Experience #1169 – Elon Musk

    Joe is an excellent host (even got Elon to puff a joint – didn’t swallow though and just single puff and exhale) an insight into a brilliant man with excellent motives and a real heart

    Tesla is going bankwupt for sure .
    Any day now.
    There is only a tiny market for a $55,000 us car .
    At most a few thousand will ever be sold .

    Despite intense media scrutiny around Tesla’s Model 3 “production hell” ramp, and Elon Musk’s take-Tesla-private drama, Tesla now has the #1 best selling car in the US. You may think that was a typo, but read on.

    Tesla has finally executed on its vision of bringing a truly mass market car to the US, with solid results in July and August pointing to a record third quarter. In August, Tesla’s Model 3 became a top 5 best selling car in the US by units, behind popular cars from Toyota and Honda that start at less than $25,000, compared to Tesla’s current starting price of $49,000. (Note: The car category does not include SUVs and trucks.)

    Although Tesla did not exceed other gasoline cars in terms of unit sales, it was by far the best selling electric vehicle, taking nearly 50% market share of all electric vehicles, according to InsideEVs estimates, and the Model S and X took another 15%.

    Because of Tesla’s high starting price and compelling options, which are also expensive, Tesla’s average selling price for the Model 3 surged past $55,759 according to Twitter user Troy Teslike, who polls people who order Model 3s and publishes a variety of resulting statistics.

    The high average selling price of the Model 3 and the record deliveries have resulted in Tesla’s Model 3 being the #1 best-selling car in the US by revenue in both July and August.Although Tesla did not exceed other gasoline cars in terms of unit sales, it was by far the best selling electric vehicle, taking nearly 50% market share of all electric vehicles, according to InsideEVs estimates, and the Model S and X took another 15%.

    Go Tesla, go Musk you are doing the world a huge service taking electric cars mainstream.
    Elon Musk will be remembered in history as one of the most influential humans of this century.
