Anybody who bought shares around the time of the Model S's launch should be rubbing their hands together in the last couple of months! If you're a short-term trader then would be time to quit while ahead before the goings on in China affect the Shanghai factory's production?

Was over in Dublin yesterday (work) and got picked up by the supplier in his new Tesla S (P100D):



I asked him how has it been and he mentioned that has had it that the whole dashboard froze while he was reversing, looking at the camera and almost knocked over some school children as the image on the camera didn't update and show them!!!!

Plus, when it was time to be taken back to the airport, we all got in and the headlamps came on, but nothing on the screens.........
He put it in reverse, and it moved so proceeded to drive out of the carpark. After about 1 minute the dash showed it was rebooting and eventually came on.

Hmm........

Was pointed to this today - makes for an interesting view, if you want to compare range on some common-ish EV options (includes the Audi e-tron, Jag, Nissan, Merc, Kia, Tesla 3)

Tesla went the furthest but the Kia was 2nd for a more affordable option

The Kia is a great car, though sadly the supply is severely limited, so waiting time for them to date has been really long....
