They may want to look at the looks of this incredibly ugly car. I must give kudos for changing from hybrid to all EV.

I like the ad. Be nice to get a poster of it to hang in my office for inspiration.

Commented On: Why Is Tesla Scared To Release Its Electric-Car Sales Data?

I've visited a few automobile factories and I'd really get a kick out of seeing DAILY Tesla production numbers. This would give me tremendous insight into the quality and maturity of their manufacturing processes and allow me to judge how quickly they will ramp up from their current low rate initial production to full rate numbers. I suppose I could get this information if I got a job at Tesla, in the right department.

At this time, I can imagine that Tesla has both good days and bad days. As manufacturing defects and other problems are uncovered, Tesla may even have a bad month. Unlike the big blobs in Detroit, Tesla would have a really tough time recovering from the bad press associated with production issues.

These pads would solve the major problem of other EV drivers unplugging your car while it is getting charged. For home use, I really don't think it makes much of a difference, but there have been times that I forgot to plug in.

The 69 KW Electric motor isn't going to get you on a freeway. Note that top speed in all electric mode was not mentioned.

One must first crawl before you walk and walk before you run. Testing cars is critical to rolling out new technology. At least the lease is 3 years and is very inexpensive. No excuse to not get one if you live in the test market.

I saw one of these in Hermosa Beach, CA, a few weeks ago. It already had white HOV stickers. I was a bit shocked and did a major double-take. Very nice car. I hope it does well in its limited production run.

The high rate charging stations will be especially needed on interstate highways. I expect that the local power grids in some of the small towns along the way will need upgrades. I'm talking about you, Lone Pine, CA!

My experience is that I can charge from home for nearly all of my BMW Active E needs. But today, my wife really needs a charge at dinner for extra range and would be willing to pay $20 for the privilege. It's not always about economics, it's also about convenience.

Commented On: So How Many 2012 Model S Electric Cars Can Tesla Really Sell?

The posts so far do not consider the challenges of ramping up production, not just for Tesla, but also the EV component supplier base. The demand is there for EVs at relatively luxury prices - and several companies are launching new products and ramping up production volumes. If BMW, Audi, Infinity, etc all push hard on their EV plans in 2013-2014, suppliers will be challenged.
