Yeah buddy! Knew this would happen, but nice to have official word on the topic.

Tesla achieved the same impressive results in the Model S and Model X.

Now the automaker is repeating the achievement in the less expensive Model 3.

The Model 3 achieved an overall 5-star safety rating, but it also achieved the top score in each category and subcategory.

He's right, of course. If you think the Earth is flat, that's fine. But you should probably not have a job that requires you to know that it isn't.

It just scares me to know that people who stray from objective facts THAT FAR are basically as damaging as organized religion. Once you believe your dumbass ideas beyond a certain point and in great enough numbers, you are hurting the democracy. Not that you could KNOW that; you’re a dumbass. (Using the indefinite “you” here, folks. Don’t be stupid )

I want to show another example of what stable pricing does when you travel on electricity. This is from a new Tesla Model 3 owner:

Quote:
I received my first 30 day electric bill after taking delivery of my AWD NPM3. I used 835 kWh of additional power over the same month last year since I am charging at home. Average Temperatures were almost identical so I don't think I used any more AC than last period. My monthly cost rose $78.90 since I have been using the M3. I have used the supercharger once for a cost of $7.00. So total power cost is $85.90 to drive my M3 for the past 30 days.

I have driven 2065 miles in the past 30 days. I am figuring gasoline at a cost of $3.00 per gallon (I live in Indiana!) while averaging 20 mpg with my former Cadillac CTS AWD. I would have had to purchase 103.25 gallons of gas at a cost of $309.75 to drive the equivalent number of miles.

So I figure I am saving roughly $223.85 per month by charging my M3 at home rather than having to purchase gasoline for my former ICE Cadillac. This is an estimated yearly savings of $2686.20!
