    Woop-de-do a flat battery instead of a big square battery. Gull wing doors too and only 75 grand. Notice the gushy ad leaves out the speed and mileage between charges?

    Hmmmm.......no complaints about $7,500 tax incentive, government subsidized battery technology, strangely "researched evidence" that electric isn't green.....

    Oh, wait.....we're not talking about the Chevrolet Volt, so there's no political value in raising those issues.


    For the record, I like the Tesla X. And the S, and the Roadster. I just think it's interesting that the people who bellyache about the incentives and electrical infra-structure issues always raised to poo-poo the Volt are not raising them when the discussion is about other EVs.

    Funny how energy has turned into a left right issue. Even union educated lefties are aware how bad things are in the economy and how the extortion scheme of man-made global warming is draining the US treasure and even how inefficient and expensive so-called alternate sources of electricity are. The emotion based left wing logic now embraces dreams instead of reality. "Someday" Barry will turn water into oil and someday Tesla's theories will be real. Meanwhile we have mortgaged our grand kids future to oil producing countries and the radical left wing can't seem to face that reality.
