Tesla fined $2.2M for exaggerating driving range of its vehicles: report
Tesla investors don’t want to think about Twitter: Al Root
Barron’s senior writer Allen Root on what lies ahead for Tesla in 2023 after stocks face a steep decline on ‘The Claman Countdown.’
Tesla is facing a new $2.2 million fine for apparently misleading consumers about the range of its vehicles in cold weather, a report says.
South Korea’s Fair Trade Commission alleged Tuesday that the electric automaker exaggerated the "driving ranges of its cars on a single charge, their fuel cost-effectiveness compared to gasoline vehicles as well as the performance of its Superchargers" on its Korean website from mid-2019 until recently, according to Reuters.
The actual driving range of Tesla vehicles drops in cold weather by up to 50.5% compared to what was being advertised online, Reuters also reported, citing the Korean agency.
