Volkswagen's Electric Car Offensive in the U.S. Just Stalled - Fortune

Volkswagen is recalling all the electric versions of its Golf compacts sold in the U.S., after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered a fault in their batteries that makes the car stall.

VW began the recall on March 15, due to “oversensitive diagnostics for the high-voltage battery management system (that) may falsely detect an electrical surge resulting in the vehicle’s electric drive motor shutting down unexpectedly.”

Tesla's business plan is to absorb as much subsidies as possible before running out of investor cash.

They are a shell game of the worse type.
Lucky for them, the greenies who love electrics also don't understand business.
Bit of an exaggeration - they're no worse than any of the other vehicle mega-corps and their own subsidy-driven operating models these last few years. Exactly how is Tesla the "worst kind"?

Personally I don't get the greenies/oilies narrative - I'm interested in technology, and in vehicles as a particular technology I rely on daily. The only area anyone is really innovating these days is around electrics, and Tesla are at the forefront. I think it's something to support. If near-zero fuel costs and "insane" acceleration are only for "the greenies" then count me in right there. If there's environmental benefits too, great.
