As with every all-electric car, even though the S will be certified by the EPA as a 265 mile car using the 5-mode test, how close to the sun do you dare to fly? In other words, Do you dare driving it 250 miles? 220? 200? If you're not sure how far away the next charger is... or if it will be busy.

This has been my argument all along. I agree 100%. I've always believed that global warming is a hoax and that the monetary savings are, more or less, largely not there (yet). But the car just drives better.

Commented On: Higher Gas Prices Don't Change Buyers' New-Car Choices Much

Please. If people don't want a product, they must be forced to buy it? Isn't that a bit Stalinist? Let's apply that to all other products as well -- food, houses, apartments, clothes, TV services, computers, etc etc. Well...
