Tom and Robert are in the studio and they are gearing up for the big Tesla Semi Truck event later this week. In the mean time they bring us all of this week's EV, Tesla, Solar, Space X, and supercharger news. Mel chimes in about charging infrastructure, and the ideal EV range.

This week Robert and Tom focus on the Tesla Third Quarter 2017 Earnings Call. In this 2017 third quarter, Tesla delivered the 250,000th Tesla, and they experienced an order of magnitude increase in five years. Elon said they were experiencing a “mad growth rate”. This being said, there was also discussion about the Battery issue, and the Model 3 delays. The guys deep dive, and unpack the earnings call.
