Re: Tesla - a government funded subsidy machine

"In the US, each Tesla is subsidized $50,000, in Norway its $130,000 subsidy!"

Governments are subsidising electric cars to encourage people to use them. Once the market hits criticality the subsidies will stop.

Shell we discuss the hidden subsidies for road transport in most countries? (HGVs cost their operators a lot less to run than the damage they cause to roads). The electric car subsidy is paid once. HGV subsidies are ongoing.
