That being said battery technology is very Dirty.

Tesla uses Laptop batteries and are essentially an electric car with an Ipad for a dash- losing money replacing and disposing batteries - hardly cutting edge technology.

Now imagine you live in Houston or Miami with everyone electric and .....a hurricane comes
Great you make it 200 mi and need a recharge.

Tesla is a con there is NO KERS, No heat energy recovery. no small motor to charge or bail you out.

look at the new F-1 cars ...they are THE most efficient in history , Turbo , KERS , Heat recovery.

A friend has a Tesla X ...what a POS. CV joints went out at 5K mi.. The car is not even in Beta state. The car is so hackable so insecure it's dangerous. He cannot drive from Austin to Dallas because everyone on I-35 goes 80 MPH or risk being rear ended. The Tesla X has a range of less than 100 mi @ 80 mph ....
His normally 3 hour trip to Dallas needs an additional 2 hours for a re-charge

the rush to all electric may be another way for the man to have more control over you ....
once power is out you can only make it 200 mi....but with a gas tank and gas cans .....
Great post. I think you are on to it!!
