Sorry, guess I should have been more specific. AnOutsider captured my meaning the best: individuals that are in the premium car market, are (on the average) less sensitive to small fluctuations in the price of gas (in my example a 25 cent change).
I am 100% on board with the thesis that the long-term march to $8 or $10 or $20 or whatever number you want to use makes EVs more attractive to larger groups of people, I was just making a snarky comment about traders that buy and sell TSLA and other alternative transportation stocks because oil went from $100 to $95 this week (again, use whatever small increments you want here).
The original question is:The question asks about the success of "Tesla" .
Tesla sells a single car that ranges from $49,000 to +$100K When I am standing next to a Roadster and tell someone that Tesla now has a new car coming out I stress that the new sedan base price is HALF the cost of Roadster -because it can be. This is important. Tesla is working at making electric cars more affordable and portraying the Model S a $100K car is off-message.
For those stretching to buy a $49K Tesla because a Leaf does not do it for them then gasoline prices are very likely to be part of their decision
The world loves to be deceived.
I'm relatively new to the market, so learning all the phrases and abbreviations helps!
That's just how it looks to me. I don't understand the market. I only bought TSLA because I love my car and I think Tesla is doing good for the nation and the world.
Not to get Facebook into the thread again, but...
Cars for Facebook billionaires (yes, they're still rich) - Tesla Model S (2) - CNNMoney
Due out soon, the Tesla Model S would allow a Facebook billionaire to "shop local" while also keeping it green. Tesla headquarters is just a short drive away and the Model S runs purely on electricity. And, with prices starting at under $60,000, it will be only moderately pricey.
Also, it's got a huge touch-screen inside with full Web access. That way, Facebookers can keep up on all their friends' updates even while driving, should they choose to. We hope they'll pull over first, though.
