    DriverGuy, no one is saying you were foolish for buying the system.
    We should all be willing to support companies and options we find useful.

    All I am saying is that there is a loss of efficiency...

    +1!

    Driverguy, you need to realize that many people buy electric cars for their efficiency. Taking a 11% to 14% loss on that, for a minimal increase in convenience, is pretty much opposite of...

    Hehe, and people were screaming about the 3%-4% vampire drain in the Tesla.
    I am sure some people will appreciate the slight convenience gain. I will take the slight convenience loss over the...

    Correct, no announcement yet.
    I would expect more information will be forthcoming on Thursday when both Panasonic and Tesla announce 2nd quarter earnings.
  5. Panasonic's investment in the first battery plant...

    Panasonic's investment in the first battery plant is expected to be 1 Billion. The initial investment will be 200-300 Million.

    Saying "Panasonic will fund 200M-300M of the first gigafactory."...
  6. Not exactly right but close. Panasonic is...

    Not exactly right but close.
    Panasonic is investing $200M-$300M, not in the first Gigafactory, but at the startup of it.

    I hope this goes smoother than the Nissan "free" charging program.

    It is a great idea though, free charging is a great marketing tool.
  8. I agree with everything you said except the last...

    I agree with everything you said except the last statement.
    I myself would love a 40kWh battery pack. IMO it is the perfect size/range for a BEV. I know a number of other fans and owners that...

    That would be wonderful to see!
    I think EVs with a 150 mile or greater range will greatly accelerate EV adoption.
    The more choice consumers have the faster adoption would be as well.
  10. A more accurate way to gather that info would be...

    A more accurate way to gather that info would be to look at accidents.
    Is there a higher level of cars being rear ended if the slow without brake lights.
    Include the Volt, and manual transmissions....
  11. Very nice, well deserved!

    Very nice, well deserved!
  12. Not sure what your point is? Male drivers on...

    Not sure what your point is?
    Male drivers on average are more aggressive?
    Male drivers on average enjoy driving fast?
    Male drivers, on average, can't handle asking for directions and so they need...
  13. The person just above you mention a 2 cents/kWh,...

    The person just above you mention a 2 cents/kWh, I get 5.8 cents/kWh overnight, that is not too unusual.
    Easiest way to figure it, price wise, is what is your cost to drive 25 miles (the average...

    The effortless, instantly responsive power of the electric motor is one of the best kept secrets of the world.
    That is why getting people in the driver's seat is so important.
    For both the Tesla...

    With vehicles traveling at highway speeds, these things occasionally happen.
    It sucks when it is to you, but it is just the luck of the draw.

    Asking how often this happens was a great question! ...

    Poor comparison.
    The drive issue for Tesla results in a noise.
    The car doesn't stop, or perform differently in any way other than this "milling noise".

    We don't know how widespread this is. If...

    I think you have that backwards. GM can afford a Halo car that looses money as they have scores of other money making models.
    Tesla must make cars with a profit margin, otherwise they can't expand...

    I'm guessing he is exaggerates anytime anything inconveniences him.
    Or, he isn't talking about superchargers, but public lvl 2 chargers.

    The supercharger charges approximately 240 miles in an...

    If you are slowing down faster than a defined rate, I would say yes.
    I also agree with the people that mentioned that too frequent brake lights are annoying and can become a hazard themselves.
    That...
