oil is the back bone of north america boys, without it we wont survive, it sounds bad i know but we need our oil reserves. if these electric cars come to be a everyday reality our economy will be worst than it is. we just need to find a way to make it cleaner for our future. besides there’s nothing like good old american muscle

I wonder how long the batteries will last before they need to be replaced?
Also how much they would cost to replace.

7) How long will the battery last?
a. Battery life is dependent on many factors, including; mileage, age, temperature extremes, and charge cycles. In general you should expect a Model S battery to have a useful life between 5 and 7 years, but proper care can result in a 10-year life.

If its like cordless drills, the batteries will cost as much as going and get a new vehicle.

I’ve kept up with this company also. They have a sports model that is a beast. At $49K it can be a savings in the long term. Last I checked (prior to 4/15/09) there were no tax incentives on this purchase.

Price is still a little too high but this is probably the nicest looking electric car I’ve seen. Designs like this will definitely help sway people towards electric. Tyson, I see what you’re saying but I disagree. Phasing out oil needs or at least minimizing it should be a priority. We need oxygen more than we need muscle cars.
