There are no EVs on the three big new car lots in Key West for $GM $F $TMC $STLA or $HYMTF.
When does Elon start advertising on the Super Bowl? This year?
Tesla has slashed the prices of its Model 3 sedan and Model Y SUV between 6% and 20% in the US.
The EV maker also slashed prices in Europe — including Germany and France.
The price cuts are a reversal from 2022, when Tesla hiked prices several times amid supply chain disruptions.
Ole Sparky had better do something soon. In this current quarter in Europe, VW has almost 27% of the market while $TSLA and NIssan each have 3.8%.
As Clara Peller might ask, “Where’s the Competition?” Well Clara, it’s here, right under your nose.
It’s nuts on Twitter now. Racists, adult nudity, Insurrectionists, and Fringe Right characters egging on that Cartoon CEO. But the worst are these meme stock pumpers and now $TSLA is the new meme stock.

Interesting thing here? Look back on that graph. Look at the length of those sticks which represents full quarters. And that last stick takes us into 13 days of January 2023.
The demand is there for cars in Europe, but not so much for Tesla. Do the math. For every $TSLA sold, $VWAGY sells seven EVs. And VW has already sold more cars in 13 days than they have in any full quarter.
Photos of Teslas in lots all over Europe, dusty, not wiped down, and you still see fanbois, “Those are for deliveries.” Okay, if that is so, why is VW waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out front now?
In China, it’s Chinese cars outselling $TSLA.
And now we have to drop prices to sell these Teslas in the USA???
Gonna be a bumpy ride, strap in if you still hang on every word uttered by the Big White Whale. “Thar he blows.”
Prediction: Tesla will drop prices further. They have to, or, their inventory will look like the mushroom cloud of an A-Bomb when real forensic accountants such as Markopolos start looking much closer at inventory, use of “Goodwill” in place of warranty repairs so Tesla can claim superior built cars, and on and on. Truth will out.
I do expect Musk will see the writing on the wall and give up his rolls at Twitter, and let’s hope, Tesla.
The only way to rebrand is to get that whimsical cretin who thinks he is Lord of the Universe out of the companies he is overseeing (Thankfully he’s not all over SpaceX like he is at Twitter and Tesla.)
Here’s one more point to consider: Japan and South Korea are not “behind” on EVs. They have them already designed. It’s just both countries are laying groundwork for H2 infrastructure, especially in SK. Will 2023 be the year for H2 to rise from the forgotten? Or do we wait until 2024-2025 when the buildout for H2 stations has enough locations on those nations’ highway?
It’s coming, and the fabois from the cult are fewer every day, so those remaining are louder than ever posting mis-information about Science and H2.
The Japanese and South Koreans have to be quiet. Don’t honk the horns with hype by the CEO. Just keep your head down, H2 Scientists at Toyota and Hyundai. Germany building a big H2 plant too. It’s coming and the Denial on Twitter is absolutely amazing.
