Problems, maybe. But hydrogen fueling solves that big graddaddy of all problems, filling the tank in a few minutes with a couple hundred miles of range, instead of the Tesla taking 20 minutes to recharge for a couple hundred miles...of...wait, what was the problem that hydrogen refueling solves, I'm kinda confused now.

Tesla is likely looking at getting higher margins going into Q4 since the "easy" work has been done to raise margins over the past year. Anyone looking at a $70,000 dollar Model S won't have to worry about a price increase since the options have been raised not the cars. Some combinations are a bit less than before, but otherwise if you are looking for a bargain price on a $70,000 - $95,000 dollar car, you may be barking up the wrong tree. That's not what happens in the auto industry any way. And they will have to do something that makes progress on smoothing out the dent that the financing plans are making in Tesla's booked revenue. I agree they could have given a bit of breathing room to people that need a some time to make a decision.

Well, it could be a very long race. Let's see, EV's from OEM's are approaching, what, about 200,000 in customer hands through normal sales vs a hand full for FCEV's in specially designed programs for one off cars. And there are thousands of plug in conversions vs no home built FCEV's. Charging stations costs run from tens of thousands for solar charged level 2, to a few hundred thousand for Superchargers and in thousands of places vs a hand full of $3 million dollar hydrogen refueling stations. EV's can fill up at any 120 V receptacle that meets code and FCEV's can fill up at, any of a hand full of multi-million dollar hydrogen fueling stations. Filling a FCEV tank now costs more than using gasoline vs pennies per kWh of electricity.

Didn't we discuss all of these issues/solutions to death years ago. What on earth is the point. Whaa whaaa whaa, the entire world didn't reach the same conclusion that I did, Whaaa...

A hydrogen fueling plant exists in the location. And a $3 million California Energy Commission grant will be used to make it better. A lot of questions come to mind.

Unfortunately this does not give us any insight into to particulars of how the economics would play out for building additional, expedient, run of the mill hydrogen fueling stations. Stations that would be needed for fuel cell powered EV's.

Though it does give us a bit of insight into what the California Energy Commission sees as the potential costs of duplicating what battery EV's are accomplishing with solar PV.

Right Jerry. Cutting edge hi-tec in three of the four most expensive, structural areas of the vehicle's most complex systems, advanced leading edge powertrain, low volume to start in a premium category and a 12k price tag. Uh huh, riiiiight?

Yes it's very speculative. And keep in mind that we are talking about costs to the consumer, which is retail price - not BMW's costs.

Yes, people do decide by objections, vacations, cars, houses, wives. Or put another way, a process of elimination. Your product or service gets stuck on one of these points, the buzzer sounds, and it's on to the next one.

I agree. Perhaps the graph should start at 2010. When there were two plug-ins available from major OEM's. I had always assumed that when this data was published it would start at 2010. 2000 vs, 2010 has a grab bag full of symmetry. Oh well, you know what you get when you assume.

Interesting point. Seems like you answer your own question,"since ever car the make (minus some used for marketing and testing) is for a specific order."
