Elon is being lied to, Porsche sales plummet, $15K Hyundai EV, and a $2.5M special

Entertainment

On today’s episode of Quick Charge, Elon is being lied to about Full Self Driving, sales of the all-electric Porsche Taycan are plummeting, Hyundai has a $15,000 EV coming to market in Korea, and Mate Rimac celebrates 15 years of building go-fast EVs in Croatia with a $2.5 million special edition supercar.

This one’s really important, because Elon believes what he sees – and if what he sees about FSD are lies, damned lies, and (fake) statistics, that could help explain why he thinks robotaxis and armies of autonomous Optimus robots are closer than they really are.
