    Hi Zac & Jesse. You guys are American. I'm surprised at your stance regarding Tesla wiping the floor. Even non Americans understand competition, and free market forces. Your presentation assumes that the current conventional vehicle manufacturers are standing still. Everyone is currently investing in EV technology. Some manufacturers such as Volkswagen have stated they'll be 100% EV within a short period. Tesla's current monopoly situation will soon evaporate. That's when they'll be in big trouble. It doesn't take much research to know what Tesla's achilles heel. This includes a high end pricing structure, a monopolistic maintenance and repair network, and unnecessarily complex body designs affecting profit margins and unit pricing. Top this off with an inability to make a profit for years. They are currently burning up invested funds at such a great rate, that they've had to shed a large part of their skilled workforce. If this report reflects the quality of your site, then I'm not very impressed with "Now You Know". Will you be deleting my comment?

      Big companies fall, new ones rise. Don’t panic.

        Standard conspiracy theory crap. The problem with all these theories that somebody or some company bought the magical water carburetor (or whatever) and shelved it so they could keep selling oil is ignoring the fact that they could make even MORE money on the water carburetor. That's how it works. There is a market of XX dollars for "transportation" which requires cars, oil, gas, electricity, batteries, whatever. If Chevron is worried about a battery destroying their oil business, and buys the rights to the battery, they could make just as much or MORE money licensing the battery technology. That's why companies like Chevron call themselves "energy" companies. I mean, why bother spending billions of dollars on deep sea drilling rigs when you can license your battery patents for billions?

                  Thats all great and im one for a good conspiracy or 2 but let me just propose one thing. If all these organizations worth billions and trillions are in such great threat by one little guy who owns less than 1% of the market share, why the hell is Tesla still alive? You really think if they didnt want him he would still be above ground. Smaller people have been put im black bags just from being around the clintons who are owned by middle eastern interests, how is tesla not accidentally suicided himself? Its too early for me to make a guess but right now the way more well known people have been suddenly dying left and right, how is this dude still alive with such big enemies?

                    I love that you think nothing will need replacement brakes tyres shocks on a car as fast as Tesla are very expensive and the worry is how people who haven't driven a fast car may get a shock when they get a service bill and its so easy to drive people will fall asleep at the wheel or just not concentrate
                    I feel that internal combustion is bad yes but we need more ideas than just EV especially when lots of coal is still used to produce electric

                      Tesla Advertiser clearly the batteries aren't Tesla made who wants to pay for replacement batteries and 40k is not cheap most people get used cars for 5k who will buy a used Tesla nobody when they have to buy new batteries for thousands and only Tesla can fit them

                                If only Tesla made a car that was Wheelchair accessible and able to be driven from the wheelchair.  I have to buy a Chrysler voyager that is converted for me by Braun, can't Elon talk to Braun and make a wheelchair model.

                                  The deep state has been acquiring patents and shelving them for over 100 years! Imagine the world we would have and what would be available if that had not happened?

I want the environment to be better, but don't want everyone to starve to death to get it. DAMMIT! Maybe Thanos was right all along so save everyone 50 % need blipping!

                                          They slap those POS Tesla's together. Geeks who bought them here on Boobtube will show you how big gaps in the doors are, dents, paint flaws E.T.C. Quality control is for sh!T. Plus they are not green when you have to dispose of the 300lbs lithium Batteries. Lithium is mined in China & Russia. And the surrounding areas to the mines are polluted waste lands that used to be private farms. Also the power to charge them is mainly coming from coal fired power plants. Clean Nuclear power is the only thing that makes sense. Todays Nuclear power is not the 1060's version people think of. France reburns 60% of the nuke waste. Co2 is plant food anyhow!

                                              lets make all cars electric, if they find litium, and power to make and charge the batteries….so, watt they will do with the gasolin, and diesel? Well...they will use de fuel to produce the power, they ned to charge the batteries! Its not better to use directly the fuel in the cars?

Hmm...Nope...we sure have got that wrong......Higher production=Higher prices for Climate saving technology Motor Cars......Nah you got that wrong?

                                                    There are global power house automotive corporations like Toyota, Honda, VW, BMW that have the resources to knock Tesla off the electric car market. Yet all of the big Corporations, for some reason, are "letting" Tesla dominate the EV Market. If Toyota or BMW for example, focused on making the Best EV for consumers, I guarantee you that they will be the ones dominating the EV market. That in its self is something to ponder.

                                                      Interesting show. however, if you wanted an EV car you could convert it yourself for a whole lot less than $15,000 (once you ahem an ICE car and depending on what type of car you start with). It takes work but it isn‘t too difficult for the average guy to do.

                                                                                  The Tesla and even hybrid cars, can rarely make it past the 5 year mark, before they need a new battery. That brings the point, what happens to the old batteries? I have been to a facility near Indianapolis, that recycles old batteries. It is a toxic, dangerous place. I don't know all the process, to recycle old Batts, but it sure can't be good for the environment, when what is declared safe, goes to the land fill. What happens in the event of a crash? Firefighters have to know how to deal with damaged batts, which is even worse, when they catch fire. Electric cars are a fraud. How do they perform, in the frigid cold of Minnesota, North Dakota, etc. when Temps go minus Zero, both Farenheit and Celcius. How bout the opposite extreme of heat in Texas, Arizona, or Florida ? I have created an Inconvenient truth.
                                                                                  Running Heat, or AC, greatly diminishes the range of those environmental terrors.

I am undergoing treatments at the local hospital and the husband of one of my fellow patients is a farmer. He was telling me how he spends over 500 dollars a day to buy fuel to keep farming. I agreed withhim that its not going to be easy to replace the tractor for instance with an electrically powered vehicle. Also consider what the long haul trucking industry is using to transport our food. Forget about the aviatoon industry. Another topic.Who can afford to fly anywhere?

Is simply false. I need a car that goes triple the distance in a single day and not have me waiting at a stop for 5hrs.

Almost all batteries are required to be recycled in the USA...Canada just came up with a way to recycle all types of batteries without heat, and recovering 97-99 % of their precious components. You are completely mistaken.
