What is helping them to sell it (IPO) is the public interest in green technology alone. According to WSJ, the company “accumulated $290mil. in total losses … and expects net losses until 2012”. Roadster is not paying for itself and I think investors should wait until Model S comes out.

(2) all you nay-sayers need to think about how progress is truely made. ONE step at a time. at least the chaps at Tesla are probing the future. one has to wonder why the GMs Fords etc are so reluctant to take the steps necessary to get us off oil…. PROFITS thats why… the bozo’s are raking in gigantic profits and will NOT take the next step until those profits stop….. it has nothing to do with the environment nor with the technology being ready…ITS ALL ABOUT THE PROFITS

I pass one on my way home from work, here in Los Angeles on Olympic avenue. Those care are WOW! nice looking. Going to try to test drive one this week end.

Tesla are designed and made by Lotus, who have tons of experience of building small,light safe cars. Battery replacement costs: Batteries are estimated, and warrenteed, for 100K miles, and expect to cost around $12,000. That’s average for maintenance costs for most exotic cars (Porsche, Ferraris(more), etc)

All one has to do is visit Tesla’s homepage (easy enough to Google) and you will see that the Roadster does indeed have airbags. One thousand vehicles have been built and delivered to happy drivers, mostly in CA. where the company is based. They were able to register the cars without problem. Another 1000 were pre-sold and are or have already been built and ready for delivery shortly.

They have addressed the safety issues he raises as well. I have to wonder if Mr. Nelson has any involvement (in stocks or direct involvent with the car industry, or the oil industry because he clearly is trying to discredit this amazing vehicle.

That this car will indeed in relatively short order render internal combustion engines obsolete must be scaring the heck out of those involved with either of the two above mentioned industries.

This IS the wave of the future, and judging by GM’s efforts to speed the Chevy Volt’s delivery is an indication that GM has smelled the roses. It would not however, surprise me if GM is building a vehicle in the Volt that will be a disaster to those who buy them, and then ditch the entire idea claiming the technology is faulty and then crush the vehicles as they did with the EV1.

Unfortunately for GM, those who leased the vehicles (they were not allowed to buy them which should give you a clue about their intentions) loved the cars and even demonstrated to keep them. Of course GM shut up that controversy in short order. I am not privy to what GM offered (if anything) to those owners to keep quiet, but it makes we conspiracy nuts curious about why they killed the electric car. Perhaps someday we will learn the whole truth.

I am going to buy or rent that movie someone mentioned above called “Who Killed The Electric Car”. I’m sure that will offer some insight as to what happened. In the meantime, I am waiting for Tesla to build the sedan they have been talking about, which will retail at about 50k, or about half the price of the Roadster.

Keep your eyes and ears open people, a revolution in the car world is happening.

I read the above and do agree on the many possibilities why they have not gone public. I..for one…am going to keep my eye out and when they do I will buy stock. I would also like to buy stock in SpaceX. That is a company to watch.

Too bad for them but it gives other small companies a chance to build their dream car and, when enough of us is willing to adopt this technology, more of us will want one. Thanks to all at Tesla Motors – this is the start of a VERY wild ride into the automotive future!

The company is a scam. In order to sell a vehicle in the US today it’s got to meet certain safety requirements, like airbags. Guess what. They have no airbag engineers. Their battery is a joke. They took 1850 lithium ion camera batteries and mounted them on modules.
(And then they boldly proclaim ….can’t catch fire because of individual containment) I can’t wait for the suckers who didn’t do their due diligence to lose all the deposits they gave this company. Moller and his “flying car” taught these guys how to scam investors for R&D dollars they’ll never repay.

Big oil will stop at nothing to crush the likes of a Tesla Motors. Further I don’t think even Toyota & Honda want to get involved with producing 100% electric cars. They want us to think a hybrid gas/electric is the future. We know its nothing but a passifier until they can get the hydrogen technology worked out and keep us tethered to the pumps.
