Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

    Re: Tesla Will Lay Off Employees and Delay Sedan Until 2011

    After reading the article I began to think about a couple of things . Tesla is closing their Detroit office. Why would they have one there anyway? Chrysler just introduced future plug in hybrids and one pure electric. The electric was based on the Lotus Elise--same as the Tesla. Chrysler is in trouble and may merge with GM (also in trouble) who has their own plug in hybrid (Volt). So was Chrysler going to team up with Tesla and provide capital to increase production until this GM merger threw a wrench into the works? Was Tesla relying on a venture with Chrysler to keep them solvent? Just a guess.

      A lot has changed at Tesla since 2008. Risk is still there.
