They aren't just a US company. The cars they make and sell in the US are more American Made than anyone else. I thought you were a Real American Patriot®? Just keep driving your foreign made car.

Oh and unlike the oil companies, they don't get any federal tax subsidies. To top it off, over half of the states don't even allow them to sell their cars.

Tesla’s dirty little secret: Its net profit doesn’t come from selling cars

It’s a lucrative business for Tesla — bringing in $3.3 billion over the course of the last five years, nearly half of that in 2020 alone. The $1.6 billion in regulatory credits it received last year far outweighed Tesla’s net income of $721 million — meaning Tesla would have otherwise posted a net loss in 2020.

Mouch Motor's and its Customer's.....I win you lose....

The Case for Higher U.S. Auto Tariffs

No other major auto manufacturing country has such generously low import tariffs on passenger cars as the United States. The EU imposes tariffs that are four times higher. China’s tariffs are ten times higher. Brazil’s are fourteen times higher. Japan no longer imposes import tariffs on cars but has figured out other ways to limit imports to about 6% of its home market.

Compared to a Tesla, every GM, Chrysler and Ford, except the Mustang is a foreign car.

Yep, That BRAND NEW PLAID caught fire and driver bales as car is moving! Took Fire Department 4 Hour’s of continuous water to cool the battery pack…..

I'll bet you didn't know that 171,500 fossil vehicles catch fire every year in the U.S. That's around 20 vehicles every hour of every day of the year. Ask for help with your math.

Tax subsidies you say? Who needs that?

In the five years since GM's bankruptcy it made $22.6 billion. But taxpayers lost $10.6 billion on bailout that saved the company.

GM made $22.6 billion. We lost $10.6 billion

Owner is a TSLAQ and crypto investor at a hedge fund. This story is far from finished.

It wasn't 4 hours:

“Engine 24 with a crew of 7 arrived on scene simultaneously with Engine 25. Due to prior training classes on Tesla Vehicle Fire emergencies, Engine 24 laid a 5 inch supply line into the scene so that we could keep a continual water stream on the fire to extinguish the fire and cool the batteries down to ensure complete extinguishment. Engine 24 and Engine 25 both deployed hand lines to extinguish the fire, each maintained a dedicated water source and continued to cool the vehicle down for almost 90 minutes. Firefighters were on scene for just over 3 hours dealing with this emergency. Nobody was hurt in the incident, and both crews worked hard in the high heat/humidity to mitigate the incident,” the Gladwyne Volunteer Fire Company wrote

Jay, just the fact that the bloody car went on fire, took 7 people to drive 2 huge fire trucks with sirens blaring  ( with ICE engines BTW) , poor training, and took "only" 3 hours instead of 4 hours to put but out, as noted in prior post, just proves EVs are not ready for prime time,.   The fact that you're going through the details of this disaster on a Tesla bursting into flames is very troubling.  What is worse, is that it was okay, since the owner was an investor in crypto.  Now Jay you really need to rethink your obsession with EVs,

What you missed is that it is a highly suspicious fire because the owner is a Tesla bear at a hedge fund (1.1 billion hedge on TSLA)and is a major crypto trader (known as the Crypto King) when Elon had just crapped on Bitcoin and sent it plummeting. EVs catch on fire far less frequently than ICE and just as many fire personnel respond to an ICE fire. You need to get your facts straight. 

Oh and the fire trucks will be electric too.
