As of late 2020, I count six nearby neighbors (within 200 hundred yards) with Model 3s, one close neighbor with a Model Y, and a few neighbors with Model Xs. In the wider community where I live, it’s more or less the same. And I’ve discovered, over time, that this area is unique. Even for EV-friendly Los Angeles, I haven’t seen this kind of Tesla density* in other communities. Tesla = EV The enthusiasm for electrification in my community — and the U.S. at large — does not extend to the Audi E-Tron, Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, Hyundai Kona EV, Chevy Bolt or any number of electrics from established automakers. My not-very-wild guess is that most Americans equate … [Read more...] about In My Neighborhood: Tesla In, Prius Out

Cathie Wood, founder and CEO of ARK Investment Management LLC (File image: Reuters) Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood expressed her concerns over auto debt and deflation risks citing a September 10 tweet by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk that said "a major US Fed rate hike risks deflation". Speaking of the risk from auto debt, Wood said: "This time around, thanks to ride-hailing - and soon less expensive autonomous taxis - individuals are unlikely to prioritise auto debt payments over mortgage payments, which could turn backward-looking quant models upside down. "If residual auto values deteriorate accordingly, the $1 trillion plus in US auto debt will be in harm's way. Autos were the best credit in 2008-09, as individuals prioritised their auto loan payments at the expense of mortgages so they could get to work and stay employed.

Some economists quickly raised flags, pointing to two consecutive quarters of falling real GDP – the technical definition of a recession. However, other economists referenced the labor numbers as too promising a sign to make the official announcement. The NBER looks at … [Read more...] about More Layoffs On The Horizon?
