Cool post. Pretty sure I saw something about that car on "Mad Electricity" on the history channel the other night, but either way the closer we get to using renewable resources the closer we are to saving the earth? (maybe?).

Yea yea yea.... doubt if anyone is just going to let you charge up where you please. Think about your monthly electricity bill. That shit isn't free either.

i don't get why they didn't slap some solar panels on that biotch, let it recharge while it's parked in the sun, plus longer mileage

^^ B/c solar panels are ugly. What if the formed the body out of solar panels? Kind of a carbon fiber look?
The dyno sheet on that thing is super weird. It starts at 100% torque.

Nice to see that it's finally entering "fullscale" production! $109K though... needs to be a little more affordable.

yeah, if i can get a freaking voltage amplifier and afford the batteries i'm sure i could build one for about 20k, electronics is pretty simple, but when your dealing with lithium ion things get tricky.

About 4 years ago, Telsa was saying they were within 5 years of mass producing a 5 passenger car that would cost between 30k-40k. Still a long way off...
