Elon is a very smart man. He figured out early that a good way to get rich was to scam government dollars under the environmental banner. A couple of local examples.And Elon’s ideas are ******* sh*t anyway…
They have put up a bank of Tesla chargers in Corio. Corio!!! The median weekly income in Corio is $449.
The Victorian government heavily subsidises new charger points. Ironically the new chargers are not far from the Tesla big battery that the Victorian government shelled out $160m for a big Tesla battery near Geelong. When it was switched on it was on fire longer than it was operational.
Tesla chargers in Victoria are mainly powered by electricity produced from brown coal.
Tesla vehicles is a failing business model. All car manufacturers in the US have to pay taxes on internal combustion vehicles then there are credits for producing electric vehicles. Tesla, that only makes EVs, can sell the credits to the other manufacturers and it so it appears that their car division makes a profit. But as the other manufacturers ramp up their EV production that will disappear.
