    I just started my own electric vehicle company. So far, we have $0 in sales, 0 vehicles and 0 plans to make any. The fundamentals look strong.
    I’m now worth $100 billion.

    Truly nuts! $166/share. I will sell when the value of my IPO shares reach the cost of my new R1S.

    They're both grifters. Just different kinds.

    Elon is a visionary bringing to fruition Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring company, battery backups for large utilities, solar tiles etc.

    Tn the other hand, Chamath just creates SPACs to help himself to other people's money. I doubt he has helped anyone but himself. Douchebag would be putting it mildly. They are not even on the same page.

    This civic gets amazing gas mileage and costs 13k.

    Someone who buys an EV for 70-100k could have bought a civic and used the difference to help the environment. 70-13= 57k
    I agree that this EV bubble looks somewhat similar to the crypto and dot.com bubbles.

    But you really cant compare an used 2013 civic to a 70K EV. A more realistic one would be a new car to new EV or used car to used EV. The gasoline car prices have shot up in the last couple of years. And even before that they were getting pricey. In 2019 the civic would have been 20K and the standard range Tesla was 38K plus a1.75K tax credit. That 16K difference got a nice EV with a good range. Even my 2021Y was 49.9K and has a realistic range of 225 miles ( not letting it get too low). An equivalent ICE car would be 30-40K, depending on whether you want to compare to an Accord or BMW.

    I am willing to save a bit of the environment for 15-20K more. Not 57K.

    Best of all, I don't care about rising gasoline prices. I just charge at home each night or every other night.
