200,000 people have placed deposits on the Model 3 already!

That's certainly a lot of cash flow!


Which will hopefully go some way to shoring up some of the losses they have been making over the last couple of years. Once you get to many noughts you start losing comprehension.

Yeah they've been burning cash in R&D to develop the X and 3 plus build the GigaFactory.  It's a huge gamble but it looks like it'll pay off.  GigaFactory alone will cut battery cost by 30% which makes everything profitable
