Silicon Valley-Tesla just released this press statement this morning. "In the first 24 hours Model 3 received over 180,000 reservations, setting the record for the highest single-day sales of any product of any kind ever in world history."
That means that nearly 200,000 poeple have agreed to give Tesla $1,000 for a car they will have to wait over two years to even have a chance at getting. The only reason to do so would be to brag to your friends. Feeling important is why humans do everything they do, and why Robots Rule the world!
