What do you guys think about how Tesla is doing?

I think it's a good thing and I hope it lasts. I think they need to bring a cheaper car to market though. Their 70,000 price is really not too bad compared to other luxury cars but eventually the luxury car buyers will dry up.

I like their battery swap idea at their tesla stations. It's the only way I think consumers will accept electric cars for long distance trips.

I don't understand why they don't make their cars more aerodynamic for more range. I guess they have to look cool to appeal to their customers.

Anyway, it's good to see one of the start-ups actually doing well.
