gamechanger ??? or outlaw renegade car dealer ??? dmv will decide for tesla motors

Model S. Source: Tesla Motors.The comparisons between automotive stocks and Tesla Motors‘ (NASDAQ: TSLA) lofty valuation continue. But Tesla CEO Elon Musk insists that the company is an automotive tech company — not just an automotive company. Though the claim is odd, Musk is right that Tesla, and the other automotive players, aren’t necessarily driven by the same underlying dynamics. And this is the primary reason so many bears shorting Tesla’s stock continue to miss the point. Particularly, Tesla has three unique factors driving the company forward that other automotive companies can’t count on.

Exclusive Superchargers
Tesla’s charging stations aren’t the typical electric vehicle charging station. On average, Tesla’s Superchargers are about 16 times faster than most public charging stations. In fact, Model S owners can get a 50% battery charge in just 20 minutes at a Supercharging station.

Then there’s Tesla’s aggressive expansion of Superchargers to cover 98% of the U.S. population by 2015. Internationally, Tesla just began opening Superchargers in Europe, and already has 90% of the population covered in Norway.

The combination of faster charging speeds, convenient coverage, and exclusivity, not only sets the foundation for Tesla’s planned mass-market car, but it also gives the company a temporary competitive advantage. In a way, it hedges the company’s ambitious aspirations.

A swappable production strategy
This point is rarely brought up in both bullish and bearish Tesla investment theses, but it’s crucial to the company’s business model. Tesla cars are manufactured in a far different manner than traditional vehicles. They have one standard battery platform on which they can mount varying motors and bodies. Even more, Tesla’s motor is a paltry one-foot in diameter. This swappable production strategy could very well give the company an advantage in achieving production efficiencies.

“When we designed the Model S, we created a platform. So it’s not just a single car; we created something on which we could build many cars, and we are able to leverage that and bring a car to market fast,” Musk explained at the Model X unveiling.

 

Musk has expressed aspirations to eventually achieve gross profit margins that rival Porsche. Before Volkswagen acquired the luxury sports-car maker, Porsche was reporting a gross profit margin of about 50%. Already, Musk says the company should hit its 25% gross profit margin target, excluding zero-emission vehicle credits, by the fourth quarter of 2013.

Capital infusion
Thanks to investor optimism for the stock, Tesla’s $20-billion valuation has infused the company with capital to aggressively invest in Superchargers, production, and international expansion. The valuation itself is a strategic asset to the company. Its $20-billion valuation means that management has even more cash than they had planned for to make necessary investments, or even ramp up production and expansion more rapidly.

Securing the future
All three of these factors are building the foundation for the company’s eventual mass-market affordable car. And each factor helps to secure Tesla’s spot among the big automotive companies — and change the auto industry forever.

new rules for BHPH car dealers

 

AB 1534 (Wieckowski)
Vehicles: dealers: used vehicle sales: labeling requirements.

Existing law regulates the accuracy of information provided to consumers during vehicle sales, including the information contained in advertising, brochures, and manuals, as specified.

Existing law also requires manufacturers, as specified, to disclose certain information regarding a vehicles engine, as specified, by affixing a label on the vehicle. A violation of these provisions is an infraction.

This bill requires a licensed dealer, as defined, to affix to and to prominently and conspicuously display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that states the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to contain specified information used to determine the vehicles reasonable market value and the date the value was determined.

The bill requires a licensed dealer to provide to a prospective buyer of the used vehicle a copy of any information obtained from a nationally recognized pricing guide that the licensed dealer used to determine the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to meet all the following conditions:

 

a)   Be in writing with a heading that reads “REASONABLE

MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE” in at least 16-point bold

type and text in at least 12-point type.

 

b)   Be located adjacent to the window sticker identifying

the equipment provided with the vehicle, or if none,

located prominently and conspicuously on the vehicle.

 

c)   Contain the information used to determine the reasonable

market value, including, but not limited to, use of a

nationally recognized pricing guide for used vehicles, and

the date the reasonable market value was determined.

 

d)   Indicate that the reasonable market value is being

provided only for comparison shopping and is not the retail

sale price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

 

The bill defines “nationally recognized pricing guide” as including,

but not limited to, the Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds, the Black

Book, or the National Automobile Dealers’ Association (NADA)

Guide.

car dealers…..you must consider paying overtime to your salespersons

 BY LAWRENCE MILES

 

The California Court of Appeal has sided with CarMax in a key decision involving the “sales commission” exemption to California’s overtime law.   In Areso v. Carmax, Inc., the Court held that a pay plan that had a base payment plus “commissions” of about $150 per vehicle sold satisfied the exemption requirements.

California law has a “commissioned sales” exemption to the general overtime statute.  The commissioned sales exemption exempts from the overtime compensation requirement “any employee whose earnings exceed one and one-half (1 1/2) times the minimum wage if more than half of that employee’s compensation represents commissions.”    The case revolved around Labor Code 204.1 which permits California car dealers to pay commission wages once a month, an exception to the general requirement that wages be paid not less than twice a month in California.  Section 204.1 defines “Commission wages” as “compensation paid to any person for services rendered in the sale of such employer’s property or services and based proportionately upon the amount or value thereof.”    The Court wrestled with the question of whether CarMax’s payments to the salesman of about $150 constituted commission wages “based proportionately on the amount or value” of CarMax’s property or services sold.

The employee argued that CarMax’s flat payment made without regard to the price of the vehicle sold did not meet the statutory definition of “commissioned wages,” relying on several cases includingKeyes Motors, Inc. v. Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, 197 Cal. App. 3d 557 (1987) (held: service mechanics not exempt from overtime law).   The employee argued that since the flat payment was made without regard to the value of the vehicle sold, it was not a commission.  The CarMax Court rejected this contention, finding that there was an alternative prong to the test – the amount (number) of the property or services sold by the employee.  The Court further rejected the claim that the flat payment constituted payments for  ”piece work,” observing that the employee was engaged in the “sale of property,” consistent with the statutory requirement.

The Court concluded by noting that the employee’s compensation would rise and fall in direct proportion to the number of vehicles sold, and thus satisfying the commissioned sales exemption to the state’s overtime law.

meet the electric car guru from palo alto ca

Electric car enthusiasts are a passionate bunch.

We’ve seen as much from reading the comments on Green Car Reports articles, and suspect more than a few of our readers have helped change the opinions of friends, family and co-workers on electric cars. Maybe they’ve even tested or bought one as a result.

“EV evangelist” Sven Thesen has done just that, and more besides–showing that spreading the word on electric cars starts with the individual.

In a podcast interview with IEEE Spectrum, Thesen revealed how he’s spread the news of electric cars through his neighborhood, to companies he’s worked for, and even helped others to go through their own discovery process with electric cars.

It all started when Thesen worked at Pacific Gas and Electric Company in the early 2000s.

When researching replacements for a diesel irrigation pump in the central valley, he discovered just how much cleaner an electric pump was over every metric–no local emissions, tiny CO2 footprint, much greater efficiency and an increasingly clean grid to power it. From that point, he realized that electric power could do the same for the transport sector.

Initially, he got PG&E to take on a plug-in hybrid as part of its mainly natural gas-powered fleet. They said yes, and became one of the first utilities to use such a vehicle.

He later joined Better Place, which unfortunately proved to be a dead end thanks to its troubles, but continued his electric vehicle activism in day to day life, too.

One of the first moves was to install an electric car charging point on the curb outside his house. This can be used by anyone who wants to use it, and free of charge–though plenty of happy EV owners have send thank-you notes and even delivered small presents as a mark of gratitude.

While the permit took a while to acquire–the charger is on city land, of course–Thesen says it’s been hugely successful so far, with regular usage and a positive reception from neighbors.

He’s used the experience of his own charger to help others install curbside chargers, and perhaps streamline the application and planning processes.

And one of the biggest successes under Thesen’s belt was getting Palo Alto to pass a city ordinance to install wiring for a charger in every new home. It means every new house in Palo Alto–around a hundred are built each year–will already have the required wiring for a charger, reducing the cost of installation should the new owner want to buy an electric car.

The same could happen for new parking lots, and the ideas in Palo Alto could spread elsewhere too.

And remember: This is all the work of one man.

With passion for a topic, some good ideas and a heap of determination, it’s amazing what can be achieved.

cal ag privacy unit to begin car dealer red flag rules enforcement

SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today announced the creation of the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit in the Department of Justice which will focus on protecting consumer and individual privacy through civil prosecution of state and federal privacy laws.

“In the 21st Century, we share and store our most sensitive personal information on phones, computers and even the cloud. It is imperative that consumers are empowered to understand how these innovations use personal information so that we can all make informed choices about what information we want to share,” said Attorney General Harris. “The Privacy Unit will police the privacy practices of individuals and organizations to hold accountable those who misuse technology to invade the privacy of others.”

The California Constitution guarantees all people the inalienable right to privacy. The Privacy Unit will protect this constitutionally-guaranteed right by prosecuting violations of California and federal privacy laws. The Privacy Unit centralizes existing Justice Department efforts to protect privacy, including enforcing privacy laws, educating consumers and forging partnerships with industry and innovators.

The Privacy Unit’s mission to enforce and protect privacy is broad. It will enforce laws regulating the collection, retention, disclosure, and destruction of private or sensitive information by individuals, organizations, and the government. This includes laws relating to cyber privacy, health privacy, financial privacy, identity theft, government records and data breaches. By combining the various privacy functions of the Department of Justice into a single enforcement and education unit with privacy expertise, California will be better equipped to enforce state privacy laws and protect citizens’ privacy rights.

The Privacy Unit will reside in the eCrime Unit and will be staffed by Department of Justice employees, including six prosecutors who will concentrate on privacy enforcement. Joanne McNabb, formerly of the California Office of Privacy Protection, will serve as the Director of Privacy Education and Policy, and will oversee the Privacy Unit’s education and outreach efforts.

Protecting the privacy of Californians is one of Attorney General Harris’s top priorities. The creation of the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit follows the forging of an industry agreement among the nation’s leading mobile and social application platforms to improve privacy protections for consumers around the globe who use apps on their smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. The platform companies who signed on to that agreement — Amazon.com Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook, Google Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, Microsoft Corporation and Research in Motion Limited — agreed to privacy principles designed to bring the industry in line with California law requiring apps that collect personal information to post a privacy policy and to promote transparency in the privacy practices of apps.

Attorney General Harris established the eCrime Unit in 2011 to prosecute identity theft, data intrusions, and crimes involving the use of technology. The eCrime Unit provides investigative and prosecutorial support to the five California regional high-tech task forces funded through the High Technology Theft Apprehension and Prosecution Trust Fund Program and provides coordination for out-of-state technology-crime investigation requests. The eCrime Unit also develops and provides training for law enforcement officers, prosecutors, the judiciary and the public on cyber safety and the importance of strong information-security practices.

State Investigators Arrest Two Riverside Men In Tax Fraud Probe

November 01, 2013

Posh home and Auto Sales Businesses Raided

State investigators with the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization raided a million dollar-plus residence in Riverside and two automobile sales businesses Tuesday, October 29.   After serving the search warrants, investigators arrested Ahmad Mohamod Sami, 38 and Nader M. Sami, 45, both of Riverside.   According to the Riverside County Jail’s website, the two men were each booked on three felony charges including white collar crime, failure to turn over government money and filing false tax returns.

Investigators searched the homes on Wyndham Hill Drive and could be seen loading potential evidence into rented moving vans.  Parked on the two acre parcel were two Bentleys and a Jaguar, all with paper auto dealer plates on them.

Investigators also searched and removed items from A-one Auto Centers located in Riverside and San Bernardino.

“While this investigation has stirred up questions and intrigue among the public in Riverside, the investigators must go about their duties to determine what laws have been violated and see this case through the prosecution process,” said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents nearly 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California including investigators with the Franchise Tax Board.

odometer fraud is a fact of life for craigslist buyers…#runtheVIN


Investigators from the Department of Motor Vehicles arrested Joseph Charles Hill IV on December 12th. He faces 33 criminal counts and was booked into the Fresno County Jail on Grand Theft Charges.

Investigators say he worked as an unlicensed car dealer and duped about a hundred unsuspecting buyers. Tom Wilson, the DMV Investigations Area Commander said, “Buys on Craigslist and then he brings them back, adjusts the mileage, and then puts them back on Craigslist for sale with a significantly reduced figure.”

Wilson said Hill used a handheld computer programmer to roll back the odometers on GM and GMC trucks that he’d purchased online.

One of his customers contacted the DMV last summer, saying he’d purchased a vehicle and then ran a report on CARFAX, only to discover the odometer had been fixed and was in excess of 163,000 miles. Investigators opened a case and found multiple victims. Some of the odometers had been rolled back more than 225,000 miles. Wilson said, “When you roll back the odometer it can significantly decrease or increase the value of that vehicle at the time of sale people are more interested in buying a vehicle with lower mileage than they are with higher mileage.”

There are nine confirmed victims, but investigators believe Hill bought more than 90 trucks on Craigslist, which leads them to believe there are dozens of unsuspecting victims.

Anyone who bought a GMC or GM truck from Hill within the past year is urged to contact the DMV Investigations office at 559-488-4024. They’re specifically looking for people who have models between 1999 and 2006.

Wilson said, “We highly recommend anytime you’re gonna purchase a vehicle, do the research, run the VIN and find out where it’s been and what the mileage has been.”
