It's interesting that specific dollar amounts were missing. It does contradict earlier statements by Musk

IN THEORY it could cost less than a "traditional" (roof+PV) setup as there should be labor and material savings. However until we get a legitimate cost comparison, it's all just BS.

I previously posted that I was suspicious of this company. I still am. I note they are also having problems in meeting production of a backlog of cars which have been ordered long ago.

Maybe Musk's April Fool's joke might might "come back t bite his a**e" as the saying goes. It would be a terrible shame if the technology fails, but I suppose somebody else would pick up on it. It just seems a very long time in coming good.

The latest reported quarterly loss and his attitude makes me want to stay well clear of this company and all its products.
