Elon Musk has built the world’s biggest lithium ion battery in under 100 days

    “Forget ‘under 30 minutes or it’s free’ for food delivery — Elon Musk is in the business of ‘within 100 days or it’s free’ for mega-sized, home-charging batteries.”

    Tell that to the Model 3 reservation holders who don’t have cars, or delivery dates…

      There’s much more to an electric car than just the battery. You’re comparing apples to oranges.

      I’m comparing Tesla’s ability to produce a product on time to Tesla’s inability to produce a product on time. It’s literally comparing Tesla to Tesla.

      Elon’s ADHD and inability to focus are causing paying customers to be screwed over. But, then again, it’s kind of their fault for believing anything this hypeman says.

      I guess a better comparison would have been an apple and an apple pie: One is a just a single ready-to-eat ingredient, the other is many ingredients that take much more time and preparation before they can be eaten.

      A timeline is a timeline. If Tesla can’t deliver something on time it’s their own fault for not accounting for possible problems.

      Every automotive expert outside of Tesla said the model 3 timeline was completely unrealistic, and they were 100% correct. PT Musk is nothing but a sleazy salesman with a cult like following.

      The people who made small deposits on the Model 3 know exactly what they are in for. No idea why you want to claim that they do not, unless you are actually the one and only reservation holder who does not understand how this works.

      If that’s the case, you have no one to blame but yourself.

      They knew that Tesla would lie about the timeline of the Model 3? What an odd thing to say…

      I wouldn’t give a billionaire an interest free loan, and anyone who would must have a mid double digit IQ.

      if you are already buying a car with a near 2 year wait estimated on it another 3 months doesn’t matter a lot. If you need a car today you don’t buy a car that isn’t available yet.

    • Rev0lver

      They didn’t buy anything. They just have a billionaire hypeman an interest free loan. Not very bright if you ask me…

      people pay before having the product in hand all the time. sometimes it’s shipped to you sometimes it’s a pre-order. It’s personal choice but generally the only risk is delivery date.

    • Rev0lver

      I thought you said there was no delivery date. Come on now Elon get back to swindling the naive.

    • MC_bot

      Even those car companies you mention often take a month or more to deliver a specifically equipped car. Unless you want what happens to be on the lot that day you are waiting to take it home and putting up money for that privilege.

    • Rev0lver

      If Tesla delivers 1% of the reserved model 3s in a month I’ll eat crow. Like an actual crow.

      Now get to work Elon and stop wasting time.

    • MC_bot

      Reservation holders were never guaranteed delivery dates….they knew what they were buying into and they will get their cars. If you want a car tomorrow go buy a Kia.

    • Rev0lver

      Or a Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Lexus. You know, companies that can actually deliver a mass produced quality car…

    Way to go, Tesla

    • Marshall Davidson

      What for? The company is a fraud and you’re out here cheering it on? Surely ye jest

  • Marshall Davidson

    BFD. Until this goof can start showing a path forward for Tesla to make money all this talk is just background chatter. The company is imploding and we are out here talking about batteries? Lol
    The stock is a Ponzi scheme and nothing more.

    • MC_bot

      The company has real, successful products, real IP and a giant lineup of people and companies that want to buy their products. Lack of profit due to constant growth does not make it a Ponzi scheme.

      You can question their approach to growth but as long as they keep delivering they will succeed.

    Batteries are not measured in megawatts (MW). They are measured in Mega Watt hours (MWh). Megawatts are a measurement of power, megawatt hours are a measurement of energy storage capacity. Why does almost every bloody “journalist” get this wrong? Yes I realize the tweet from cannon-brooks also made this mistake.
