Autoline Daily Insight – Tesla’s Smoke & Mirrors Battery Swap Scam

June 1st, 2015 at 4:44pm

In each edition of Autoline Daily Insight we get in-depth analysis from insiders and experts on the issues that drive the news in global automotive industry.

Edward Niedermeyer conducted an “on-the-ground inquiry into Tesla’s battery swap program” over the 2015 Memorial Day holiday. He found no evidence that the station in Harris Ranch, CA was actually being used to swap customer batteries. Instead, it’s likely that the EV giant is taking advantage of a loophole in the California ZEV mandate to collect more than $100 million in taxpayer money.
