    Yeah your maths is completely shit. Not sure how many months are your version of a year, but that works out to 8.3 years for 500k at 5k/month.

    It was supposed to be 5000/week not per month I thought, so about 2 years worth if that's the case.

    They're still around, as are the StarTrack ones. Canberra only got a couple of the TNT hybrids, there's still one running around the southside. I've seen a few for sale over the last couple of years, most have around 200,000km so that's probably TNT's fleet replacement time. They've also lost a few due to crash damage. Doubt they're going to get any more, it's a lot of $$ for something that carries the same amount of freight, and uses a little less fuel, than a Hiace.

    Tesla lost nearly $1 billion in three months

    http://www.news.com.au/finance/busin...63c3c0ac5d0c40

    TESLA’S record net loss in the first quarter and fast-burn through millions of dollars is raising questions about the company’s ability to pay all its bills.

    Chief executive Elon Musk conceded that criticism is valid but said during a sometimes-testy conference call with analysts Wednesday that it’s “quite likely” Tesla will make money and have positive cash flow in the third quarter.

    “It’s high time we became profitable,” said Musk, who also promised restructuring this month to achieve profit goals. “The truth is you’re not a real company until you are, frankly. That’s our focus right now.”

    Wednesday’s results showed Tesla tearing through $US745.3 million ($995.5 million) in cash in the first quarter, due largely to the slow production ramp-up of the Model 3 mass-market electric sedan. The cash burn could put pressure on the company to borrow more or sell additional shares to raise more cash.
    Problems with building Model 3s at a plant in Fremont, California, got so bad during the quarter that Musk has tweeted he’s sleeping at the factory, automation is overrated and more humans are needed to build the cars. Strong sales of the car are key to generating cash to pay operating expenses, fund capital spending and make upcoming debt payments.

    The company said in a note to investors Wednesday that Model 3 production is on the rise and that it expects profitability in the second half, under generally accepted accounting principles.

    “This is primarily based on our ability to reach Model 3 production volume of 5000 units per week,” the company stated. In its letter, Tesla said Model 3 production hit 2270 per week at the end of April, the third straight week that it reached over 2000.

    The company said it improved battery module production during the quarter, overcoming a large bottleneck, and it now expects to hit 5000 Model 3s per week around early July.

    The Model 3 starts at $US35,000 ($46,750) but can easily top $US50,000 ($66,780) with options. Musk said the restructuring would involve getting rid of third-party contractors that have grown out of control. “We’re going to scrub barnacles on that front,” he said.

    He admitted that Tesla made a mistake by adding too much automation too quickly at the factory. “We have temporarily dialled back automation and introduced certain semi- automated or manual processes while we work to eventually have full automation take back over,” the company said.

Amazon has lost money every fucking quarter for the last 20 fucking years, and that Bezos motherfucker is the king.
