Tesla Motors Involved In Organized Crime… According To Anti-EV Fliers In San Francisco

Tesla Motors is apparently involved in organized crime, and if you drive a Tesla electric car then you are as well. 🙂 According to fliers that are being distributed in San Francisco, that is. Many Tesla owners have recently found said fliers on their vehicles and decided to share the humorous pranks(?!).

Sort of hard to imagine someone being serious with this, after having read it. But why else would someone go through all the trouble of canvassing San Francisco looking for Teslas if they weren’t serious? Why else would someone (or a group of someones) actually going around San Francisco searching for the relatively rare Tesla Model S or Roadster.

Some of the other more humorous portions of the flier reference Tesla’s “manipulations of Congress”; the safety issues with Tesla’s EVs that have somehow “burned planes”; the question of why Tesla has “caused so many homicides”; Tesla’s “non-automotive designed batteries”; and the allegation that Tesla is in-bed with Google and created the EV specifically to keep track of rich people. 🙂

Here’s the full flier. Enjoy.

While this is likely to be the least important article that we’ve written about Tesla (probably ever), there has been, as of late, a lot of important news concerning the company coming out, such as the announcement that Tesla now occupies 50% of its Fremont factory; the news that plans for a potential Gigafactory are moving forward in two states; the expansion of Tesla’s partnership with Sixt Leasing into Switzerland; and the (considerably less important) news that you can win a free Tesla Model S via sweepstakes on eBay.

To be clear, I do recommend that you enter the sweepstakes. 🙂

Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
