23 Key Elon Musk & JB Straubel Highlights From 2016 Tesla Shareholder Meeting

One of the keys to good communication, in my eyes, is to open up and talk to people in an honest way as you would a friend. As you’ve probably already read, that’s one of the things that I think makes a lot of people love Elon Musk (one of several things). Still, he surprised […]

Tesla Model 3 Battery Cells — What We Know So Far

Originally published on CleanTechnica. A recent post over at TMC kicked off a worthwhile discussion on the type of cells that will be used in the Model 3.

Another Tesla Conference Call Summary (Fun One)

Originally published on TeslaMondo. Here’s a lean version of the Q1 conference call, without all the Hamburger Helper that clogs official transcripts. All quotes are verbatim. Everything else is TeslaMondo interpretation. Analyst: How can tiny Tesla make a profit on Model III under the shadow of big, bovine GM and its Bolt program? Seems impossible. Musk: “We’re highly confident […]

Tesla Conference Call On YouTube, + Update: Tesla’s Been Saying Fremont Could Produce Nearly 1 Million Vehicles

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Like in some previous quarters, I went ahead and put the full recording of the Q1 2016 Tesla financials conference call on YouTube.

2016 Tesla Production Target Stays Intact

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Update: Elon just said seconds ago on the conference call that Tesla aims to become the best manufacturer in the world. The 2nd (or maybe 3rd) major point for me regarding the shareholder letter is that Tesla still has a 2016 production target of 80,000–90,000 for 2016 despite the widely discussed troubles with ramping […]
