    Tesla is likely the ONLY company for which I would applaud Union certification.

    So much for China re-engineering the vehicle once they get it into China.

    Tesla will only give access to all their patents if you give up the right to sue them for anything at all, including Tesla using your patents.

    Speculation on price drops was due to lowering demand, looks like that was spot on.

    http://ir.tesla.com/news-releases/ne...ion-deliveries

    Deliveries down 31%. Difference in transit numbers from last quarter was around 8000 vehicles, add that as delivered and STILL down by 22%. The biggest money makers, the S and X, dropped by a whopping 56%, and that's with the price drops to reel in additional demand. With a shift to the lower margin mid range Model 3 and now the short range+ (35k car still nowhere to be found), yea, Q1 is going to be a bloodbath. Unless they made stupid money selling FSD on sale. Production of Model 3 still hasn't passed 5000/week, sitting at 4800/week.

    Is there ANY good news?

    I hear they fired all the staff at the Calgary Service Center today.

    Nope. No good news.

    That’s crazy. One of the great things about Tesla ownership here was the service. Top notch here unlike in Cali.

    Well, that settles that, no Tesla this spring then for me. Wouldn't be real thrilled with some kid showing up with a briefcase saying "hi, I'm here to fix/service your $150k car" at my front door....

    We were very serious about picking up at least one, probably two different Tesla models in Calgary this spring. No longer. I tried calling the Calgary Tesla service center yesterday and again this morning - the phone just rings and rings, no answering service pickup, and nobody home. While not confirmation that this Tweet is legit, it certainly gives it more credit, not having anyone on the phones...

    If I had purchased a Tesla car in Calgary in the last couple of years, I'd be PISSED right now, as part of the reason I would have bought one was knowing there was a local service shop I could bring the car to for service and repair.

    I really hope they are up for sale, for shareholder's sake...

    Or rather, debtholders sake.

    I called Tesla Canada just now to ask them about the Calgary service center. She told me that she was "in corporate" and had "no information about the Calgary service center", after I explained the Tweet/etc. I then asked her "who would have that information". She then hung up on me. Nice huh. (It's recorded).

    Yes, but who would buy them at anything other than a fire sale price - that's sure not going to help the shareholders out much, at least in the short/mid term.

    Hence my second comment.

    They are worth what they are worth, the Tesla longs have to realize that eventually.

    Agreed.

    Vilas Cap management and other funds that are short on Tesla are probably starting to salivate a bit more than normal after this last week or two.

    I have never physically been to the YYC SC, but I could never get a hold of them or get emails replied, I would typically have to c/c everyone and say WTF!

    I don't see what the problem is? I bought mine and I live in Winnipeg, the mobile tech shows up, does his thing and leaves. Nice guy, easy to get along with and all I have had done was replace the center console CF piece because it was scratched.

    Ya, and that's great for a simple problem. What happens when something major goes, and they need a lift to get the car up off the ground for example? Example the really heavy components, say like the gearbox/trans - the 25% of repairs that Tesla itself says can't be done by mobile service (they claim that up to 75 or even 80 percent can be done by mobile service techs). Then what? If you take a Tesla under warranty to a non-certified shop for repairs, it voids the entire warranty (I was told this twice by two different Tesla agents today). There are hundreds of stories online about owners who are still waiting for body work/panels/etc from accidents, and does the same thing goes there, no certified shop, no more warranty?

    I'm not knocking the cars or the tech, we wanted (and still want) to buy a S P100D and perhaps an X SO badly, it's all the missus has talked about since riding in one, and thanks to that, her "new" car we got last year, she's lost all interest in since riding in a friends S and X for a while. However, I'm NOT going to drop 1 or 2 hundred k into vehicles that have no local shop I can get them serviced and especially repaired at, no matter how good the mobile techs are at fixing little doo-dad problems. I'd love to see a mobile tech replace major powertrain/drive unit/motors/battery in some guys parking spot outside of his condo...
