Il mercato automobilistico misura i volumi di vendita in milioni di autovetture prodotte e vendute.
La Tesla Model S 60KWH costa 69,440 euro e la Tesla Model S 60KWH Performance 92,940 euro. Sarà anche una automobile innovativa, ma certamente non può essere considerata essere una utilitaria. Sono prezzi da Bmw oppure da Mercedes, pagati per una qualità e diffusione nettamente minore.
Se però si conteggiassero tutti i fondi pubblici a qualsiasi titolo ricevuti da Tesla, direttamente od indirettamente, la Tesla Model S 60KWH avrebbe un prezzo di mercato di circa mezzo milione di euro.
Questo è il titolo di Bloomberg, in cui constata come la Tesla lo scorso anno abbia venduto in tutta la Danimarka ben 176 autovetture dopo che il governo ha ritirato tutte le sovvenzioni alle auto elettriche.
Questo invece è il titolo di Business Insider: un crollo delle vendite del 94% sembrerebbe non indicare una calorosa accoglienza del mercato.

«Toyota Motor Corp. has sold its stakes in Californian electric carmaker Tesla Motors Inc.»
«In 2010, Toyota acquired a $50 million stake in Tesla as automakers were competing to introduce less-polluting vehicles in the U.S. and sold a shuttered California factory to Tesla for $42 million. The two companies then started to jointly develop RAV4 electric vehicles in Canada in 2011 and later sold about 2,500 units over three years amid culture clashes and recalls.»
Sì: avete letto bene.
In tre anni sono riusciti a vendere addirittura 2,500 (duemilacinquecento) RAV4.
Ci si stupisce quindi che la Toyota abbia fatto fagotto e se ne sia andata via?
Come nel 1943 i tempi non erano ancora maturi per far giustizia di nazionalsocialisti e fascisti, ad oggi è ancora presto per far giustizia i tutti quei liberals democratici e socialisti ideologici europei che hanno concesso finanziamenti a fondo perso alla Tesla.
Ma verrà giorno che sarà loro presentato il conto.
Nelle more dell’attesa, vedremo come reagirà la Macron & Merkel Mansonry Ltd.
In ogni caso, godetevi una sana lettura:
Tutti coloro che si sono iscritti al partito democratico, grande argentiere dei liberals e di Tesla, dovrebbero essere tassati di almeno 50,000 Usd l’anno a vita, per rifondere almeno in piccola parte il maltolto.

Japanese auto maker sold stake in Tesla last year, but won’t say when or how much it makers.
TOKYO—Toyota Motor Corp. sold its stake in Tesla Motors Inc. some time last year, the company said, formally ending a partnership between the car makers.

Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) said on Saturday it had sold all shares in Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) by the end of 2016, having canceled its tie-up with the U.S. luxury automaker to jointly develop electric vehicles.
Japan’s biggest automaker had bought around a 3 percent stake in the Palo Alto-based automaker for $50 million.
Toyota spokesman Ryo Sakai said the company had sold all of its shares in Tesla as of the end of 2016, part of a regular, periodic review of its investments, after it had initially sold down a portion in 2014.
“Our development partnership with Tesla ended a while ago, and since there has not been any new developments on that front, we decided it was time to sell the remaining stake,” he said.
In November, the Japanese automaker appointed its president to lead their newly-formed electric car division, flagging its commitment to develop a technology that it has been slow to embrace.
The department comprises a new in-house unit to plan Toyota’s strategy to develop and market electric cars as part of the company’s efforts to keep pace with tightening global emissions regulations.

– Toyota spokeswoman says all Tesla collaboration has ended
Toyota Motor Corp. has sold its stakes in Californian electric carmaker Tesla Motors Inc., a spokeswoman for Japan’s largest carmaker said Saturday.
The sale marks the end of collaboration between the two companies for now, Toyota spokeswoman Akiko Kita said by phone. Toyota held 1.43 percent in Tesla as of July 2016, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
In 2010, Toyota acquired a $50 million stake in Tesla as automakers were competing to introduce less-polluting vehicles in the U.S. and sold a shuttered California factory to Tesla for $42 million. The two companies then started to jointly develop RAV4 electric vehicles in Canada in 2011 and later sold about 2,500 units over three years amid culture clashes and recalls.
Toyota formed its own unit to develop electric cars in November 2016 and aimed to introduce electric cars soon.
In May 2010, as the emerging alliance took shape, Elon Musk called the partnership “historic” and said Toyota was a company he had long admired. In describing his test drive of the Tesla Roadster about a month earlier, Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota said he felt “the wind of the future”. Shares of Tesla have risen by almost 60 percent this year.

Tokyo (AFP) – Toyota has terminated its tie-up with Tesla and stepped up efforts to develop electric vehicles by itself, a newspaper said Saturday.
In 2010, the two companies agreed on a comprehensive cooperation with the Japanese auto giant paying $50 million to buy 3.15 percent of shares in the US electric automaker.
Two years later they jointly developed sport utility vehicles with electric-power engines and sold some 2,500 units in California and other markets.
But their joint development has since decreased and Toyota sold all the Tesla shares it held by December last year as part of its effort to “review destinations for investment,” the Asahi Shimbun reported.
The Corolla and Prius hybrid maker, meanwhile, has set up a joint team with its group companies to develop electric cars, it said.
Immediate confirmation of the report was not available.
Toyota, long focusing on fuel-cell technology as its future green-car strategy, has sold the fuel-cell Mirai, which emits only water from its exhaust pipe.
Fuel cells work by combining hydrogen and oxygen in an electrochemical reaction, which produces electricity. This can then be used to power vehicles or home generators.
But a lack of hydrogen refuelling stations has been a major hurdle to bringing fuel-cell cars into the mainstream.
