I'd buy one. The Tesla is good but too expensive from the get go. It'll take longer for the price to go down.
Personally, I'd rather push for businesses to really let go of their hang ups and do more telecommuting. They are all far too resistent to that concept for some reason. If I only had to drive into work once a week, I'd only fill up once a month (or even less often) and that's at only 30mpg
What does that work out to for fuel savings and implied mpg? Not to mention overall energy savings, including electricity saved by the buildings I freeze in every day of the year?
Anyway, the Tesla is a good step, but need to push all the "alternatives" not just the vehicle kind.
what will happen when we do get rid of the combustion engine?
wonder how many jobs will disappear with the conversion process; no need for spark plugs, plug wires, and all the other components needed to maintain the engines..... and all the people that make those parts.
Gas stations no longer needed...... guess some would be converted to Charging Stations, but all the employees of these 24 hr gas stations across the nation, not like there would be a bunch of different brands of electricity to compete with...... kinda suprises me the power companies aren't pushing for it more.
How would it work for large trucks, and machinary such as cranes, bulldozers, and other heavy equipment.
Lot of retraining will have to take place in so many areas that deal with the combustion engine and oil or unemployment will be insane.
I am sure this would be a phase out over a number of years and yes I hear your concerns............Truth of the matter is many parts are now made in the far east and yes I agree that in itself is not good for our country but one of our biggest deficits if not the biggest is with the oil producing nations
Heck you could put photo cells on the roof to generate enough power for your house and car.
