      5 reasons why to buy a tesla! Anyone?
      #1. Support the technology to move away from fossil fuel (eventually electric vehicle technology will dominate over gas)

      #2 electricity is cheaper than gas!

      #3 less visits to the mechanic 🤔(maybe this is why this video was made)

      #4 electric vehicles component are easily re-purposed (recycled DIY) less trash! More power to other energy solutions!

      #5 tesla vehicles are a bang for my buck! Simple putting they are a quality Mercedes show for the price of a Toyota!

      @Michael Martin change is never easy but like the Big Three who didn't feel like they had to start listening to their customers but the Japanese did. Therefore, their market share was driven down and never recovered. I fear Scotty doesn't want to read the writing on the walls...

        I would buy a toyota corolla or a Celica from the 90s then buying these stupid ugly teslas. I can't even think of how people even have these cars as their dream car it's disgusting. I wouldn't even imagine it i don't even like to see these crap on the road burns my eyes. Never buy tesla or any other electric car its just toys and things that won't Last as long as a old toyota does.

          I’m not going to pretend as if I’m a car guy, or if I have a Tesla. However, I’ll say this. Crossover suvs are the #1 selling cars in America. So his point makes no sense.

                Hey, Scotty: Your advice on ICE cars is invaluable. On the other hand, your perspective on the future is bonkers. Stick to what you know. What’s really strange is that you fawn over Rivian but spit on Tesla when all Rivian has done this far is to do a good sales job for investors. As Musk found out, there’s a long, hard road between prototype and mass deliveries of a reliable, working vehicle. As far as factories are concerned,Matt least Tesla bought a Toyota plant near Silicon Valley where electronics and software is a profession not an overused plant in the rust belt. Now Musk produces more batteries than the rest of the world combined. Where is Rivian going to source their batteries? Musk is reducing the amount of lithium and cobalt used in batteries and is poised to move to solid state batteries developed by his own research teams. Tesla has two Gigafactories (Nevada and Shanghai). Rivian has a couple prototypes. Tesla has synergy with SpaceX for development of materials, electronics, software among others. Tesla has so many Supercharger stations around the USA and Europe that the map looks like measles. Charging times are decreasing dramatically with Version 3 upgrades. How many hydrogen filling stations did you say exist around the world?
                Now, what were you saying?? You’re living in a cloistered ICE world. Please broaden your perspectives before you lead your avid followers down a dead end road.

                  You are clueless... when you compare the entry level model 3, it is the best value car compared to all other electric cars. Plus they are very reliable with minimal repairs as they have less moving parts. Takes 20-30min to charge here in FL on a super charger.

                    And what kind of car did Toyota build, when they were first imported into North America? A bunch of rustbucket $#[email protected] Pure garbage. They had to make them better, otherwise they would have failed. Since Tesla is a pioneer in electric car assembly and manufacturing, they are still on a learning curve. Henry Ford had 3 attempted business plans to produce a car. He failed in them. If it wasn't for outside help in production or finance, he would not have succeeded. For example the Dodge brothers did both. Built the motors, transmissions, axles, and differential for the model T Ford. And borrowed money to him as well. It is a shame that an American car company is put down. Go ahead and buy all your products from China. But don't complain about job loss to them. You don't need a war for them to overtake you now. You let it happen on your own ignorance!

                          I like Scotty but gotta disagree with him here. Haven’t had an issue with my Model S, and it doesn’t take 5 hours to charge my car at a supercharger.

                              Also Scotty: Teslas are reliable because electric motors is simply technology and have been around forever

I was like no the car hit 8 others "

Buyers will get rid of them well before they hit that mark. Here in Los Angeles seems everyone has a Tesla. My 08 Yaris was very reliable but my 70 challenger I’ll die in.

Great performance.. clean.. not polluting, fun, autopilot that works (commuting 2 hours per day on autopilot). Can use ac and heater when stopped for hours if needed. Infrastructure is amazing, hotels and supercharger everywhere... come on... so much useless bla bla bla.. tesla model 3 under 40k...
