Tesla: The electric car revolution has

by Chris on May 18, 2013

A while ago I shares in Tesla. Not a long ago, but prior to the quarterly announcement that sent the skyrocketing to nearly a hundred I guess that s what when a huge percentage of the is short and the company proves any shadow of a doubt that it s for

Last week Tesla was the of my weekly Globe and Mail which you can read here. In article I explain the reasons my investment. But as is usually the case, it s to include everything in an article s supposed to be 600 words. (I m asked to 600 words and I usually push it to

Here s what I like Tesla

As I explained in the Globe they build a premium buy focusing on awesome vehicles, not electric vehicles.  They an expensive sports car and an expensive  Next comes an expensive  They ve won awards and accolades car reviewers.

 They are becoming a brand.

They ve launched a of super chargers to give a 50% recharge in 30 minutes.  Oh, and are free to use.  They ve cars without even a significant number of dealerships.

ve single handedly created an situation for cars costing or more in some cases.

ve created a model where expensive cars aren t THAT crazy expensive. government incentives and a US financing you can buy the car with no down payment and an expense that is about after accounting for fuel  And they guarantee the blue book resale of any competing luxury sedan.

The Model S 85 KwH battery pack can me about as far as my family s Lexus SUV on a tank.  But while the costs us about $62 per average fill up (we refill when we re close to the Model S would cost me a $8.25 based on Toronto off-peak hour pricing.  In you re wondering I did actually dig into my bill and figure out all of the variable that Toronto Hydro me.  There are a surprising number of disclosed variable charges).

translates into about per year savings for an average

Telsa has made electric not only cool (really but super practical in terms of the to drive 480 km.  As soon as they a supercharging station between and Montreal on the 401 (likely Brockville so traffic can use it too), I think is absolutely no reason I wouldn t own one as a vehicle.

They are WAY ahead of car makers because they absolutely no legacy crap to with.  Every single car make is automatically built for a day technology toolbox.  Over the air updates anyone?

 Show me a car that does this?

re PROFITABLE on a volume of about cars per year.  That s volume.  They haven t any Model S cars outside of America yet.  Hello

 Their plant can scale to vehicles per year.

The CEO, Musk, owns 24% of the stock and is more on the recent financing announced.  This guy is not afraid to be and not only think but ACT outside of the

I could go on and on just ask my wife  

line is I see Tesla as a disruptive in the auto industry.  If they can this number of Model S and I can still find it impossible to one on the roads in Toronto (and I in an expensive area), there is huge potential here. ve not launched an SUV yet.

 They  They ve not launched a pickup yet.  I bet they will their 3rd generation platform sometime in 2015.

I see these guys as the next big brand, potentially as big as BMW, or the mighty Ford or GM given time.

Why wouldn t everyone most people) want to own an car?  Their cost approach parity with and they will be FAR cheaper to and fuel.  Just think of all the systems that don t need to in an electric car?

Yeah, the has gone crazy since the quarterly profit announcement. it might pull back big  This is a risky stock in the term.   But as readers should by now I m not a short term investor.

 I like to own big trends that go on for a decade or more.

Here s one of trends.  And I think it take longer than a to play out.

Strap on the  This is gonna be a fun ride.
