A day late and a dollar short….

Triple AAA. An appropriate aphorism.

I have no doubt that the market will sustain more than one electric SUV, just as it sustains a very large assortment of SUVs today. Perhaps you would like Tesla to attain monopoly status? Competition drives innovation.

Agreed. The outstanding question “Is VW trying to green wash their criminal activity with these announcements and have no intention of honestly building this vehicle in mass?”.

Wake me.

What Luxembourg and Lichtenstein were otherwise occupied ?

I guess Audi could not find a higher cost production site.

It is actually the reverse, Brussels tries to hold on industry so much that deals are very good there. The more GM, Ford and Renault by leaving their past factories, left behind very qualified personnel that is now for grabbing by Volvo and Audi for comparatively low wages. Logistics is excellent and some extras exist like notional interests, a specific item of the place that reduce taxes along a myriad of other advantages and incentives.

It’s a handsome car. The trick will be fast charging. A consortium of not-Tesla needs to create such an infrastructure.

The front grill is ugly…

This is a VW announcement. The trust is gone and all I hear is wah wah wah blah blah blah.
Stop talking and start building.

The real news! – VW goes bankrupt and Tesla gets a great deal on factories in the USA and EU. Oh wait, I’m a couple years early. Ho Hum, I’ll wait.

Too late, bring it on NOW.

Wow! An other news from Audi to say that in three year from now, they will be able to compete with a new comer that is already to the market. What a good way to show everybody how late they are.
