James and with me, is Richard John wick Barry, hello and Marcus crafty craft. This week, we're investigating the rise of a beautiful kingdom beautiful Kingdom to the north as an automotive force, spoilers it's, China and we'll catch up with the only person in the world. Officially floating one meter off the ground in this week's mask watch so stay with us, but first of all we've had some feedback, and last week we were talking about the Hyundai, ute and listen longer. Swasey says given Hyundai's reliability. Record manufacturers must be very, very worried. So competitive manufacturers and let's see if Sid agreed they won't need laxatives. So, okay, that got a few toilet joke laughs in there were a few people, including the triple W. So I presume he's somewhere on the worldwide web and Renee and Tom Johnson, who assumed from our computer generated render of the car that is gon na, be based on innocent navara. Now we'll put a hand up to say we used the Nissen navara as a base for our own image of what that car might look like just to get the conversation started just another impression: we're not employing any kind of corporate tie. Ups between Neeson and the Navara and Hyundai, and issued so just to clear that up wax triple three came in with the Hyundai ute needs a ladder frame, chassis and leaf springs to set a suspension to be viable in Australia and New Zealand. I'D.
Assume remembering wax is a Kiwi mmm automatic good bloke I'd assume they would likely use the 2.2 litre diesel engine that's. Currently in the santa fe 147 kilowatts 440 Newton meters would be on par with most of the current Utes. This all might. This is all my thoughts. The Santa Fe top trim is 75 K in New Zealand dollars, which is pretty expensive, I'd assumed the ute would be similar in price, so it top spec Hyundai ute who's. Putting is that the same as yeah yeah, which is interesting to him, but I think that larger Genesis inline six, yes, I do, is or might be a good candidate definitely for for a tough youth, but anyway thank you for the feedback wax now here we go. This is quite a name: zenyk solo Duncan umber Kayla Wow, says, for anybody that wants to compete in the market must first win the reliability contest. For me, Hyundai has won that with their current fleet of cars, mmm let's, wait and see now thinks the pronunciation is. Bucky is Bucky, Bucky Bucky, which is South African, speak for you, so so really we're saying that hand is already there that they've got that reputation. That they can parlay that pretty easily into the like commercial world. I think so I think so too. I think that the like commercial market is less sensitive to that kind of stuff. Anyway, you know, you've often got people who want a working truck and all they want is what are the specs and you know, what's the economy, all that staff it's pretty straightforward, yeah now light side says if Kia made our sister you and we know the Kia Is champing at the bit they're wanting to get chewing on that ute as soon as they can, and he said that would be interesting, though I don't think Kia will stick to commercial.
I believe the rivalry between the two companies is actually helping them grow when you're using the same base. You have to be creative to get sales talking of which within these segments, where do you think each company beats the other? So I thirty vs. rail that's a whole lot of it's. A very interesting question write that down real quick, destroy which it's, just taking minutes, will read through those at the beginning of the next podcast make sure that we're on track yeah Rico GM has a brand new straight six diesel engine currently on duty in there joy Suv, you'd models, no idea if that engine will show up in a Colorado sized you to give Hyundai something to think about. Maybe more manufacturers should go down the inline six route. You'Ve got that rich got that fantasy them, but that's interesting that the whole discussion hinged around potentially using an inline six and the packaging challenges. That would typically go with that, but this engine seems to to get around that. So, thank you very much for all those thoughts. Then we also touched on the Land Cruiser 300, which had been our subject a couple of weeks ago, David Anderson I'm, not in the market for a Land Cruiser 300. But the idea of a petrol, hybrid, doesn't scare me off doesn't scare me off them either looking at the fuel numbers, it's little brother, rav4 and also reading between the lines for the possible bleak future of diesels, maybe it's time so there's someone who's keeping an open Mind prints dog lovely to chat about the impending Land.
Cruiser 300 series is Toyota, going hybrid to get as many years out of the engine as possible without updating for emissions as it about buyers looking for more or is it about buyers? Looking for more frugal vehicles, I think a hybrid Land Cruiser will take longer to gain traction compared with rav4, Camry or Corolla. I think he's, probably right it doesn't mean he's, literally traction that's. Absolutely what prints dog is pretty clear. Well, I think all he's saying is the landcruiser. Buyer is significantly different to someone who's looking at a rabbit or a Corolla or or other similar toyota product, so comet very different of course hammer. He says I share Richard Berry's prediction about Toyota. What was that rigid? That it would lose its place as the number one manufacturer and that care, and he and they would take that place, who he says lately Toyota stopped innovating, is simply reacting to market trends. The last time they're now they innovated was when they released the original Prius Ford, Ranger outsells Hilux in 4×4. So I think Twitter. He makes the point turn. It picks up a lot of sales yeah for buy two years to clean fleets and absolutely fleet of blah blah blah blah blah. I don't expect Toyota to do anything until its marketplace is severely. Market share is severely threatened by then it's, usually too late well. I'D. Offer up hammer is cars like the 86 now that it's gone now, but cars like the FJ Cruiser others, I think the mainstream models like the Corolla and others have been pretty adventurous in their design.
Supra. Yes, super of course that's another one cooperative model with BMW. I don't know whether they've been really that kind of sitting on their hands. I think they've been innovating in that way, yeah resting on their laurels. Maybe I think things like Addington G up there. Okay. Well, then, look we had a whole other block of feedback on Richard, so Teddy, Teddy Teddy. Obviously a friend of yours just condition you can see through Richards arm sorry, you can see through Richards down. I know what he means and Trust trust triple. Nine said sorry to speak off topic, but he's Richard turning into a zombie. I asked as these holes that I can see through and he's a left arm. If this is in fact the case, I would like to donate my brain to feed him as Richard. Is my favorite review vp chimed in and said Richard he's so dedicated to his job? He added holes through his arm to improve his power to weight ratio and reduces drag flight waiting waiting, yeah it's, pretty good yeah, now John Schroeder says, saw Barry on the beach Wow. Now we have the Barry train all starting to become concerning so there's a conversation between John and Andy cook do coke and John yeah. You can see it on the on the YouTube page. They talk. They talked about your Turner's Batman for the API yes, and des cook raised that one then John says huh Alexis shown me his latest toy from Porsche blah blah blah cap Caped Crusader in a Honda yummy, okay yeah; no, that was John Schroeder.
Ah thanks, John okay. If you want his details, still got it and Terry to canned in days mate. That haircut is hideous. Look John! We just wants to do the door worth it. I like who was that that the haircuts hideous? Oh Terry can't look he's right, it's, not actually even it's, not even a haircut it's. Just a lack of haircut yeah I'm, just sort of seen seeing what's gon na happen with Terry can is related to Sam, can just just quietly Terry nice one mate. I agree. All right now, we'll move on to our main topic of discussion, and that is basically China. We'Ve had two news stories this week that proved very popular and generated a lot of comment and, first one being our headline was meet the Chinese Toyota Land Cruiser. Is there hinton l46 double zero, a blatant ripoff? Now it bears a certain resemblance to a vehicle wheel, the Land Cruiser. Is it hang ten? You have a particular brand of phone. Did it make a lot of sense because my phone is a Hawaii, Hawaii hangs, fine Hawaii, yes, are they going with an all around surf thing? Hawaii might be monitoring you through camera there either that's on it's illegal. Those phones are illegal in America, so they hang right down to a 4.6 liter v8 in that car, 210 kilowatts em and it can manual or auto. Now the price our own Andrew Chester, Chester done did a bit of currency conversion and in Australian dollars, it's priced at 42, grand that's reasonable, so a similar kind of Land Cruiser here a little bit I'm talking about half price without having to bring the car.
Yes, I know that you said it has a passing resemblance, but my god I mean the grille is a little bit. Different it's got the vertical slits and horizontal, but but anyhow so that still goes on. We have seen through the last couple of decades some pretty close, mimicry actually of things like a Range Rover, Evoque yep, I want to say the many various other ones they do. The fine lines hang tens is not the first copy that they've done. They had a couple of years ago they had the hang ten Auto t3, which is a Volkswagen, Amarok, really there's a remarkable. They may have been some inspiration, it's some engineering and design. You know what's the saying imitation is business I'm sure forms bargains very happy. The other one is the the great wall cannon now that's, a car that is definitely coming to the Australian market and it's, a Hilux competitor, yeah, and I don't think it's the same in terms of gee. That looks familiar it's just that that that formula that layout is going to be hit on towards the Hilux and Ranger and and various others. So it was going to be here in q3, but I think it's a little bit earlier now, a matter of months, so it could be the first half of the year. You know how we're known at the tools in the shed podcast I'm powered by a car's guide for our predictions. Oh, yes, my prediction is that China is going to be very big one day.
They we've said a couple of things like last week in two years time when there'll be no Tesla yeah and also. We believe that China is going to be very, very big window. We laugh now but watch well. We won't be laughing in two years. The interesting thing to note about this Great War cannon is that it has been according to its maker, engineered with Australia in mind. What so it's been benchmarked against both the Hilux and the Ranger, more particularly with its off highway performer. So that's got to be everything crafty. I imagine from axle articulation the way the diffs work, all in terms of Chinese military equipment and stuff like that, it's they've all got to be formidable, so surely they would be using the same. I don't know Engineers know how like why? What is it about Chinese vehicles, which just has they haven't hit the market in Australia? Hang Tien we we've only just discovered, is partly state operated yet so they were I'm sure they would have access to military style, engineers and designers and whatever else yeah why they haven't hit the mark. Well, I mean they're getting better all the time. Okay, I've got two letters mg. You know mg in terms of those little SUV, yes, answers and things they've just started to really, and the thing is that they, you know. Obviously you can see by the designs they closely scrutinize everything on the market that does well.
It is effective that is popular yeah and and obviously they would apply those principles to what they're making so it's only gon na get better. I agree with Richard one day, they're going to be here to know constantly on the blow to you on them. I have course painting it was more or less a hot war. You, though, you've got a direct line to president school of thought that says it's it's, like not quite a domino theory, but the logic flows that Japan in the 1960s copying we're very big into exporting and and followed a similar strategy. South Korea has subsequently come up. So far in terms of its quality and value and all of those things and China is the next one to go down that road, definitely there's. An alternate thought that says the China may see cars in a slightly different way as just devices as object as as consumables, as opposed to something that has that extra bit of personality or drive about. I don't know quite what I'm trying to say, but yeah. I just just see it as another like a fridge, it's it's in tool or it's yeah and it's a tool it's a it's, not a lifestyle device, they don't think. Well, then the thing that may modify that is, how outside expertise, yeah he's brought in yeah. You know if you get the gun. People as South Korea is done. Just hire the right people to accelerate your progress.
Absolutely look I don't think in especially in China. They'Ve got a massive, rising middle class and even like rich, I need as well. I think then, and they're fiercely you know patriotic people. I reckon they'll turn away, possibly from European cars and into their own industry. I'Ll start producing in amazingly well produced. You know, cars and goods of all sorts, and you have a think about. I mean that's, a massively populous nation and it's, also it's, all not just smooth roads and everything. They'Ve got pretty pretty rough sort of off roading and that so they've got access right where they are sure testing ground. They have gone in China, these little dumplings. They have got in China on the border with India. They have got a miniature version of India. I would say practice invading right on the board. I need soldiers, not tiny, not tiny, they all between up for the maddest Andy. Oh, like its enormous Rob. I guess the size of a it's, the size of India is wrong. I think is, I think, they've got they've got a full scale version of a town, a city in India just one time, one part of just invading it because it's right across the border from it, so maybe they don't actually invade the actual ones. So that would be bad, I think that's having a material influence on the development of their automotive. No, I don't think I just came to mind, looks like my house anyway.
I could have that completely wrong at the risk of stating the bleeding obvious it's going to be very, very interesting to see how this next phase develops initially and if you are a Toyota or a Nissen, yeah Ford, yeah you're doing your best to understand how things Are progressing and what you have to do to fight back absolutely sweetie, lon let's be realistic. They like Astra, is landcruiser. Mad you've got some real hard work ahead of you trying to eat into those sort of market slices of the pie. Yes, because those people are diehard they're loyal to know they love their youths, they love the resale of course yeah, so so to sort of encroach on that yeah you've got to have a really good product because because people don't sort of wear falsities yeah too long And they are on crafty landcruiser is such a tough nut to crack because price isn't necessarily the thing that's going to get you there? You know people are willing to pay a little more to get their Land Cruiser because they believe it's a high quality option yeah and just serve them. You know for the long term how about this prediction right. So this is. This is out there right, but so Toyota come out with a hybrid Land Cruiser. No one buys it. They buy the Chinese knockoff instead, because it's got the yes I've got something yeah. I know you don't, like surprises, but I've got something in here.
No no it's been cutting into me. The whole time whole way through here, but because that whole no, this because there's staples in it the staples of getting into me but you're working. You know it's getting a bit stinky in here to hang from a rear view, mirror yeah yeah much so maybe just the end of the month. I just might just hang it out there. I know you're gon na collapse, the whole studio that'll be better. Is this? Like a subtle hint, because I know it's just because it's been a couple of years of just three blokes sitting in here, sweating that's, very much appreciated, ah it's called little trees. I think what we should say is we really value people's thoughts on the whole rise of China it's a wave that has seemingly been building forever it's partially it's been kind of starting to break and and hit the shore, but hasn't quite got there year. Talking about the Korean virus and what improving all the time? No, so what are people's thoughts? You know if you had a viable alternative at half the price of a land cruiser. Would you consider it any land cruiser owners out there or prospective buyers? Tell us what you think is that tempting or absolutely off the car I just yeah – I see a lot of them around, but I also see a lot of them sort of quickly, not a relief force, always being sold.
So really so you can understand the budget appeal absolutely, but then you can see that tradies are buying into that and then they realizing hold on. I need something a little bit that's it my cousin's a 19 year old trading and he was looking at buying a ute and he was looking at a great wall and he was looking at a Triton, and I said you got to get the tried he's, like. Oh yeah, but it's four years old – and you know the great walls got a cool screen in it, and its new and it's gon na looks great and looks tough and I'm like mate he's. Just thinking about the Trident I know it's, all yeah and he's bought the Great Wall. Is he yeah, okay, because I'm sure which yet famous ye oldie retailer said it? But you know quality's remembered long after the price is forgotten. Mmm so we'll see how the quality shakes up over time, but at the moment that seems to be the equation. Yes, all right now, we're going to move to our garage what's been residing within its walls and what we've been driving during the week and with yourself. Yes and you've been in a South Korean product. Oh we've, never tell us I've been a very large South Korean brake. The Kia Sorento GT line it's the top of the line; seven seater SUV, large, seven seater SUV from some Kia. Look this up until like! Well still now, the Sorento has been kind of the value, practical drivability benchmark for a 7c, affordable SUV.
You know before you start getting into BMW and yeah. You know Lexus and and and that type of territory thing is, I loved it yeah, but not as much as I used to it's getting on it's gaining on that diesel engine is, is a good thing, but it's a bit heavy and it's not that comfortable to Drive day to day how you inject life into the relationship Richard, you need to put some romance back. Well, maybe well a date night or some kind of hell have you seen just around the corner is a new Kia Sorento and the images have just come out. The spy shots have come out online in the last 24 hours and it looks like a beast now. It'S, probably I reckon maybe LA Motor Show, reveal away classic relationship. You wan na be trading in for a newer model, and that would be my advice if you're looking at a Kia Sorento now absolutely gon na get a really good deal because they'll being run out in the next. You know 12 to 18 months yeah, but a new Kia Sorento is around the corner and it looks killer. Someone'S taken someone. Some naughty person wrote weather where it was at an airport or something like that has actually taken. The camouflage, like the the heading off being transported, yeah, yes being transferred been sitting in a warehouse and someone's ripped off this thing, so you're gon na cool front of it.
You can see the full back of it. The back has got Mustang taillights, like they read a little bit vertical like that, and the inside has looked like it's got like a 12 point, 3 inch screen for the digital instrument cluster and then double decker, one like Land Rover style in the console. It looks amazing, so look like I'm, not trying to you know, but I've got to say. If you look in the market for a Sorento, maybe wait a little bit longer and there's a new one round the corner, but Richard Berry sponsored by I did enjoy driving it, though it's still a good cuz it's like any mortal its life. People want to get in quick. Yes, when it's new yeah then there's this middle period, where all kinds of incentives are always sleeper ticking along yeah and at the end you can swoop in and pick up a new car for far less money, because it's had its run out absolutely and you seven Year, warranty looking at your start, seeing additions like with a black edition that you drove recently and you start seeing better and better value 7 seats, the head that the Headroom is limited by the sunroof slightly, especially in that third row he's closer to the honestly. Everyone have a look here carved Ian I'm. All legs yeah, my body is the same length as everybody else, I'm. Also good. I actually make sure your legs are like these it's, like that under the table, we don't even touch the ground.
Anyway, you got lb syndrome. What a body it is that was me: the Kia Sorento, very good, yeah crafty. You have been pitting two age old rivals against one another in a tough kind of World's Strongest Man type contest. Oh, we were lifting stones and we were yelling violence. Llamas walk, pushing big tractor tires over kids. Are there lifting that fridge that's just made of concrete a fire chocolatey teeth? No, we were, I was doing a tone. Comparison between you know, speaking about land cruisers before Land Cruiser 200 series, gxl versus the Nissen patrol TI. All right so two big v8s yeah, one, a diesel, the Land Cruiser one, a petrol, the Patrol and boy. Oh boy, some surprises there really yeah. Absolutely. What do you mean? Surprises I'm, not telling you surprise. Fuel consumption was a surprise and not in the way that you'd expect I can. We were towing a van JC that was tickling. Well, hang on three tub Wow more than some people town, I suppose, you're getting up to watching what you've actually got in the vehicle. Wait I'd recommend I do go to the bathroom, the boys you keep under GCM. It was well I'm, probably ever selling. It was probably too I 2.8 all right. That'S close that's, but that's technically dry, so nothing in it, but it did have a few bits and pieces. That van is your land based HQ facility yeah. You know how manners of that car it's, crafty, central yeah and I'm gon na keep moving cuz.
These parties are always got the Toblerone plate, it's, a fool it's, a high tech, everything's, amazing that's, interesting because the patrol and that the images that are conjured up in my mother of super soft luxo style made for America kind of vehicle boy. I have. I have spent a fair bit of time in them recently, but not towing, but this week I did yeah. I spend a chunk of time towing and yeah a lot of surprises. Um. You keep saying that I'm, there I'm, not gon na. Tell you Oh tell me this thing: yeah foot, brake or handbrake um. What just feels like your River dancing every time. What do I perform? What do you prefer an East there? Is there a reason? Is there? Is there a mechanical reason? Why why a lot of American cars have got the religious tradition? I think it's, probably tradition, I don't mind either the Land Cruisers got a nice strong hand. Braking patrols got a nice strong foot, the one or do you remember? Is it a yeah? You can't do I've tried to do a handbrake turn with a foot brake and you can't, but this fall in a Jeep Grand Cherokee, SRT, okay, and so you come flying in on a whip. She'S out of the local police station car park, spin the wheel and then step on the foot brake and it just in a tire doesn't it doesn't know it was on a skid pan at City.
Motorsport Park was actually way back yeah we get this one, but what is yeah Richard will you just do reverse, but anyway yeah lots of fun and very revealing and we'll look forward to that so it's week or so, and in that story with the video it'll In terms of stand alone, towing platforms, JC they're, both awesome in their own right and obviously this is a longtime rivalry. It'S like Holden versus Ford, like you've, got your diehard fans are both yeah. I remember they raced in support versus Ferrari, didn't know so there you go so that again, like any something look forward to what have you been into surprise: I've been driving a BMW i3. Yes, so this is electric little shoebox sized and car that's been with us for some time now. You know, but the latest version is the S bigger battery little more power, and it just reminds you how delightful this Curry's I for one put my hand up: absolutely loving it yeah it's, so quick, it's, so cute, the interior is just such a lovely place to Be – and there was a lot of talk in times past about how ultimately you'll be able to use your car electric car to feed energy back into your house. Electricity supply I'd like to go further I'd like to attach the car to the house yeah so that it becomes a reading room because it's, a very nice little extra annex. My dad used to use the car as a reading room and he would sit at the front.
You know landcruiser every time he got cranky and had it. We had to blow up he'd just go out to the landcruiser at the front and just sit in it and read: Playboy magazine and mutter. Yes, yeah that's it well. This thing is look. The only downside is that 70000, so it's a small character, essentially small cash. I got ta say, though, driving at home last night, I came in started investigating the used market wow. I thought you're gon na tell a joke: 2015. 7 year old thousand kilometers 35 grand oh wow yeah, so it's a slightly smaller battery. What and you step up to 2016, you had a few you're at 40 low 40s. Something like that. People want to know, though, what the life of that battery is and marija cost of replacement and all of the wrecked and that's where the rubber hits the road is, in the second hand, mark yes, you're, absolutely right, but anyway suffice to say it was huge fun. It'S so quick and it's, so nimble and just so enjoyable to drive, because the way it looks the way it feels lovely, I loved it loved my oh, they are so responsive they'd, like that. The acceleration is tiny is great. They look great that they've comfortable to sit in there, a beautiful environment, yeah yep. Now speaking about responsive and beautiful it's time for Musk watch Music. Now, first of all, hmm holy smokes. You know his life Tesla has spiked, because Tesla and Elon, the dear leader, has delivered better than expected to for results.
This happened on Wednesday during this last week, the company reported deliveries of a record 112 thousand vehicles during the fourth quarter, so that makes two quarters of very solid deliveries and revenue, and also Ilan showed a pic of the production moral y which will have behind some. In its kind of a known quantity that he's a production model, so that's going to add to the portfolio of models available and onward and upward from here, let's see but on YouTube. Mr. luxury o has posted a video saying. Look Elon Musk is on the verge of making billions, but is it possible that he could become the world's first true? What is a trillion anyway lots and lots Cillian that's a great question: you could spin dick okay. Could you find out for us that Julie, let's, just walk around money for Josie it's like realize we're doing this all wrong? You know supposed to take it out completely. It says not to because they can overpower the room. Well, it is pretty strong it's better to take it out. Let'S continue. Afro football came in with a comment on the on the video and said I'll be the first black millionaire bracket hopefully come and then Mike DS sitting on what said sure that's Michael Elon is from Africa, and now an American citizen thus would make him african american. So and then johnny five triple7 says what's even more remarkable is his hair seems to have miraculously grown back since investing in PayPal but it's.
True, I think I think he's had the reforestation the plugs undertaken in. Have you seen a video from him in 1997? Yes, yes and he's there with his girlfriend, and it arrives on a flatbed, yeah and there's a v12 engine. Petrol, yeah, right and he's got no here, he's, usually bald. Then he was very, very famously crashed that time and wasn't even insured or register. Oh well yeah. She dies so then we've also had a claim at that same earnings presentation the Tesla's close to having a 650 kilometer that is 400 mile electric car range, so that's. What are you on saying soon? You'Ll be able to go 650 kilometers on a single charge. Now, that's, not just for more or bigger batteries, that's from more efficient battery, so we're not talking about any extra weight, we're talking about moving the Model S and Model X to this two one: seven, zero format used in the model 3. I don't know what the two one: seven zero format is, some of the Tesla rardy out. There might be able to tell us but it's a newer and more efficient, I'm sorry to the 169. Yes, that's right, yeah went through the point: zero one point: zero. Two then up to up to the current, when you mention these range figures Josie does he does. He include a buffer like a safety buffer that's all we're, rapidly approaching a 400 mile range for Model S, for example, so won't be long before Model S has a 400 mile range, so not just yet, but it's close according to what's 400 miles took okay.
What hundred miles in kilometer, it's 600, making my eyes water Tesla, currently the longest as having 373 miles so it's, not an enormous leap but it's, pretty substantial! Then you go to Twitter, Twitter, of course, its Twitter and Elon Musk retweeted, a video that how things work ran, and it was actually a tech insider video on what to do. When you've had the misfortune to drive off the road, maybe low bridge and into the water, how to extricate yourself from that situation, what's happening, sighs all right, it's. One of my check. It is one of my fees by driving actually into a body of water and what to do right, like if you've got an electric car. How did I mean don't, you undo you see, but is it going? You do put the windows down quickly before you go in here. Do you wait until water get fills up the car and then my pressure equalized use that small window of opportunity to get a try and get your wits about you, yeah yeah and not open the door but open the window unbuckle all the way down? But if it's electric, how does it open it'll be short out immediate? Now you don't break it. So what are you saying you don't go for the windscreen go for a sighs, but have you seen people try to break car windows even with a baseball bat? They go further and say: do this little do Vareen, you got box, yes, Dyke, twists and dates, but anyway Elon retweeted, this video and said in fact, a Tesla works as a boat for a short period of time works as bad for short period time as an Electric car has no air intake or exhaust to block and battery motor electrics are water.
Sealed submarines are just underwater. Eevee'S is what he said, not it, but I think electric an electricity in water tends to be a reasonably good conductor. Yes, yes, very good about a hundred and fifty kilos of batteries, he's gon na sort of along the bottom of the cars not gon na make it fight very well anyhow. You'Ve got to get in in week. Don'T wait for the pressure we closed because yeah you will have drowned body get out fast. Now, the sheer price. The share price is six hundred and forty dollars six hundred forty dollars. It was five hundred and seventy two dollars and twenty cents that's still not more than Twitter. No no yeah it's, not but that's, just extraordinary that's pretty and the short sellers have been torched. They are charred after the last week, CNBC reports that Tesla's short sellers have lost more than 1.5 billion in one a as the stock skyrocketed.
