Seems this guy just got mugged by reality. Anyone who has ever owned anything battery powered should understand the affect of cold weather....and be able to successfully predict range failure. The fact that this guy didn’t just means he was on hopium....and the first 24 withdrawal is the worst.
“Seems this guy just got mugged by reality...”
Hard to tell. It may be that he was acting dumb for effect...as most people are, like you say, dumb in these areas. He may be quite smart, but wanted to make a spectacle out of Tesla, which he certainly did, in any case - especially the part about the car locking up when its battery dies - that’s one ‘feature’ that they really, really, try to hide from people.
