All this stuff is great for the long term. If the govt would look at butanol and ditch this ethanol garbage we would be way ahead of the game right now.

Tesla Motors proved that an electric car can be built that can get more than 50 miles per charge and does not look like kiddie-car. The only problem now is cost....A Tesla is over $100,000....not exactly in the range of the average car buyer....I can buy gasoline for life at that price !!

I read the entire article and there was nothing more about the vehicles. Just praise for Mr. Musk. Waste of time.

Who cares!

As soon as we all change to electric cars the price of electricity will skyrocket.

Lets go back to horses as local travel means and then at least we will know where all the S**T comes from.

I have high hopes for Tesla but the two $10K incremental prices for what appears to be simply larger batteries gives me cause to pause. . .
