And the survey says.....
The WhatCar website
surveyed 18000 owners of various cars to get a sense of reliability.
Here's a quick chart, made with my clumsy Poser graphing gadget, from the specific data on Electric Cars. How does Tesla stack up against its specific competition?
The first 10 are in the 90% decade. Renault is 83%. Tesla is 50%.
This is what happens when you value THEORY over EXPERIENCE. Elon's explicit guiding principle is: Avoid doing things that work. Only do things that fail.
Failure increases share value, which is the only thing that matters.
But in the real PHYSICAL world,
EXPERIENCE WINS. THEORY KILLS.

Semi-related afternote: Now here's
an EV that I'd buy in an instant if somebody built it. The Russians made an electric version of the Lada (basically Fiat) in 1979. They didn't go into high quantity production, but it's a neat practical-looking car, with practical and safe nickel-zinc batteries. (The idiotic explosive lithium cells hadn't been invented then, and should never have been invented.)
