  1. Thanks for sharing this. Teslas are a bit out of the price range of most of us though. It will be great when prices drop.


    • Cheaper 1 million mile batteries are not very far away and this will bring price parity with internal combustion engines. Even now when you take the total cost of ownership into account say over five years – electric vehicles – not just Tesla’s are cheaper to own
