People need to realize that having X billions worth of stocks is very different from having X billions in a bank account. Just as stock prices went up, they can go down - for long-term stock owners like Elon the current value of those stocks doesnt have a significant effect.

€100 per car per every gram of CO2 over the fleet average limit - we are talking potentially paying billions € per year for large manufacturers like FCA, VW, etc.

Not really - building new battery factories just take time and some producers have underestimated demand growth, so they didnt start building new battery factories soon enough.

Growing (or even keeping your marketshare) and not paying big fines for excessive fleet emissions in markets like EU or China is getting increasingly harder without EVs.

Fortunately for Tesla owners, Supercharger network is really good (much better in most places than Ionity), so this wont effect Tesla owners all that much. Other OEMs will have to find reasonable solutions for their customers.

The study those claims are based off is outdated, claims about the need to replace the battery pack after 100K miles is a complete nonsense (unless Mazda has the worst EV tech in the world) - in practice these claims are a mix of outright lies and misleading/obsolete data.

Mazda either has the worst EV technology available (since their argument assumes a battery pack replacement after 100K miles), or they are making really bad excuses for their design decisions that cripple the range of their EVs. Read more

They are free to consider it a penalty for cheating on emissions (VW wasnt alone, it was just the worst offender). Read more

I am sure they would gladly keep making them, but only if those consumers were willing to pay €10-15K extra for fines that car maker would have to pay for each of those cars...

When Tesla was finishing Model S design, current standard (CCS) didnt exist yet and they (just like almost everyone else) didnt want to use CHademo (only Nissan is now using it). As a result, Tesla made its own DC QC charging “standard”. Read more

Hydrogen is not viable because buying it it is like buying $7/gallon gasoline. EVs at least compensate a little bit for their higher cost by having lower-than-ICE-vehicles cost per mile. Read more
