Mr. Yon­za sets the record straight on what recalls mean for Tes­la car own­ers where they receive over the air updates of the vehi­cle soft­ware which improves the car over time. He relates his expe­ri­ence of hav­ing his Tes­la car ser­viced which is rel­a­tive­ly sim­ple and straight for­ward. You book an appoint­ment from your car and go to the ser­vice cen­ter, or they come to ser­vice your car. Mr. Yon­za dis­cuss­es how Tes­la has a strong focus on vehi­cle safe­ty that is much bet­ter that tra­di­tion­al car man­u­fac­tur­ers. He address­es media bias­es where for exam­ple over 80,000 inter­nal gaso­line cars burn up each year which nev­er makes it on the news, but any time an elec­tric vehi­cle catch­es fire it is all over the news. He explains how charg­ing and range anx­i­ety is over­stat­ed as the car soft­ware tells you how much you will have left when you reach your des­ti­na­tion. It also tells you where you can charge. He explains that he gave up try­ing to get our province to sup­port elec­tric vehi­cles as there was no response, as our provin­cial gov­ern­ment are not inter­est­ed to sup­port sus­tain­able trans­porta­tion. For the provin­cial gov­ern­ment, adding elec­tric loads in the province reduces exports rev­enues, a con­ser­v­a­tive mind­set that goes against the role of any crown com­pa­ny with a monopoly.
