  • lf “T” can make a “S” for about $100k l don’t see why you can’t drop a retro body on their skateboard and keep the price about the same.

  • As long as you don’t work out that at 300kW a 64kWh battery will last 5 minutes…

    Q
  • Cool! The more people experience that electric driving can be fun, the more people around them see that it’s hip to dump the fossile dinosaurs.
    If you reduce electric driving to its reasonable aspects, you won’t get the people for who a car is more than economic transportation – although this would be the ideal views of life. It will be coming, relax.

  • Sounds macho and eco, especially on electric energy produced on coal energy plants

  • OK. So we make the same testosterone-cars, like in 20th century, as if we didn’t learn from the past and refuse to see the future that is promised to us and our children..
    But electric, thus greenwashed!
