Elon goes to war, Model Y refresh, EV lease deals, and 1300 hp electric NASCAR

On today’s episode of Quick Charge, we ask: What does war look like to someone who “narrowly avoided” military conscription in South Africa? Apparently it involves lots and lots of robots, and a cameo appearance from Bill Gates!

Elon took to X to say he was ready to wage war on TSLA shorts – and, once he has self-driving cars and the Optimus robot figured out, his stock gains will “obliterate” Bill Gates … all of which seems very sane and normal. In other news, there’s a Model Y refresh, Model S/X sales are tanking, Lucid sales are up, killer EV lease deals about, you can get a Nissan LEAF for $19 in Colorado, and NASCAR goes electric!
