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.”

The Tesla event and pre-order wasn't really about selling cars. They are rapidly burning through cash and this event was more about selling the company to investors so they can raise the funds they need. Big numbers and news stories are more valuable than hard sales right now. Tire kickers are more than welcome!

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.
Not sure why anyone would root for Tesla to fail.
Not rooting for it to fail, just sating the obvious that industries propped up by government subsidies don't deserved to be considered "successes"!
