If they're going to be selling the Model S in countries with high electricity pricing and conservation-minded buyers, they're likely going to be pressured to fix the "vampire" problem reported by David Noland.

Get Tesla to put an appropriately sized Model S battery and rear-wheel electric motor and it'll run like a bat out of hell.

As we're approaching the 1/2way point of the 2nd decade of the 21st century, I'm not impressed by 40-50 mpg, which was achievable in the '70s.
Where's my affordable 80-100 mpg car?

Jerry Dycus' other comments aside, he does make a good point about the ReX - it's quite overweight compared to the Lotus one and somewhat underpowered.

I think this fear is highly unwarranted; you're far more likely to impact battery life through fast-charging than through V2G.
Presumably, you can control the rate at which you send power back to the grid and for how long.

I think it's a mistake to have just one size option for a ReX and the not-quite-3 gallon tank is undersized.
At the expected price, BMW should at least make the car go ~300 miles with a full charge and a full tank.
How much more could it cost to have a 1.0 L engine option and a 6-8 gallon tank?

From a tech standpoint, I agree but the Karma is a very different-looking car than the Panamera. I doubt that the 2000-odd buyers of the Karma would leap at this Porsche based on the design.
But I would, if I had the bucks.

Exactly what I thought when I first saw the Twizy.
If I want a vehicle that can only do 50 mph and 30 miles without windows, I'll buy a scooter.

Tell that to Tesla and their 90 second battery swap.
You are aware that better batteries are only 1/2 the equation, right?
How many 2 megawatt fast chargers can the grid handle? Because that's what you need to charge batteries at the same rate as a fill-up at the gas pump.
