The reason why the Tesla car cost a lot is due to the BATTERY PACK. End of story. That took 5 secs to type....Now move on WSJ.
Carlos Miguel Mangundayao
They’re called 21700 batteries
craig me
When the battery needs replacing you throw the car away. Like an iphone. How long does a battery last? 3 yrs, 5 yrs. That makes the car even more expensive because you wont be able to sell one more than a few years old. Built in depreciation far more than any car ever

$42,000 is outside of most consumers reach? Sounds like most consumers need to fix their financial situation.
Hans Juergensen
Your only considering the initial cost of the car. The longer you own the car, the better the deal because of electric prices verses rising fuel costs to run the car are continuously in Tesla ( or any electric vehicles) favour. Plus the greatest advantage: no exhaust. It’s really a no brainer.

Democrats want Elon to pay much more Tax
Ams Tech
You realize if a other car company came out with this they would of charged 260,000+ we got Elon musk working for affordable bc he cars i Can say with certainty if ford or GM came out with this for way more lol you guys should be grateful
Raymond Bouldaire
Asteroid mining would cause the cost of manufacturing batteries to plummet.... Get at it, Spacex

A scientific breakthrough is coming though.. (its got a 3 in it)

Ain’t gonna work..

WSJ: can we make a Tesla video but still sound like we did as much research as a 12 year old in history class?
Sandy
The reason is: Morons buying it.
HK
if the EVs are self-driving = gamechanger
Lise Marie Caron
Cuz plastic is taxed
Thomes Maisling
They must be expecting some seriously retarded demographic if they think people won't guess the battery pack is what's making electric cars more expensive.
M- Nice
Amazing these little Batteries can make this car thrive!
Gary Doss
The cost of batteries will be small compared to the damage fossil fuels will do humanity. It's already hurting us though we do our best to believe its OK.
Frank Ragetti
Secret?
Family Dog
You put a wrong title
The correct title would be : Why Amazing Teslas cost so low.
Jokes aside How you could unironically ask these questions. How this futuristic cars from 3019 who will be driving itself in couple of years and beating even some lambos and ferraries in acceleration which cost 1mil $ or more Cost So Much? smh
lol
Thomas Ward
Tesla should make a small economy car and price it on par with the Civic and Corolla, that would change the game.

Tesla had a good year. They posted profitability for the first quarter ever, they scaled up manufacturing demand for the Tesla Model 3, and they improved Tesla Autopilot. Elon Musk didn't fly through the year without controversy; however, it seems that TSLA has finally found its foothold. One of Tesla's promises has been the improvement of self-driving cars for an autonomous future. Are we close? Are we far? Does Tesla Autopilot fail or succeed at the end of 2018? Let's find out.
