I like it but unfortunately it's unattainable for most. The EV market will bomb if the prices don't come down. I have nothing against EV vehicles and there are a few that I think are really cool. But there are many other vehicles in the $100K price range that I'd rather have than this one. I really don't understand the thinking here... if you want the segment to survive, then you have to appeal to the masses. It doesn't matter how great it looks or how much power it has if only a select few can afford one.

Infrastructure is the other issue.

Virtually no long trips in the majority of the US, & unless full recharge time is less than 20min, that’s going to be a no-go for a lot of people.

That's a great point too. I know that change is inevitable but they seem to be doing this a$$ backwards.

i think it would be really cool to integrate solar panels for charging capability.

I agree..just don't think they are strong enough at this point to support the demands .

some really interest tech but way overpriced and delivery schedules are insane. Next year is sold out and next delivery dates in 2022.

In free markets, demand generates supply.

At the turn of the 20’th century there weren’t gas stations on every corner like today. People wanted automobiles & bought them, the oil industry made leaps to meet that rising demand.

Main difference now, is there is already a readily available energy source with high energy density. You now have a well established market availability & a fledgling one with, to a large extent, no so-called “Environmental advantage”.

If it steals one tesla sale. its worth it.
Electric cars are not automobiles. they are appliances.
Cars go vroom. lady appliances are silent.
Even ricers have more cool than EV drivers.

I'm not an EV fan personally. I mean I get the technology, but I'll keep my IC vehicles until they are pried from my cold dead hands. EV's will definitely be a part of our future, but I find it hard to picture them being "the future". As others have said, there is a ton of infrastructure that needs to be put in place. CA can't even keep the lights on for many of their residence, now they are going to go strictly EV?? Ok... I think some other fuel source will be the future not EV. If people can't pull in, fuel up and keep going, it will never be main stream.

I still say the hybrid will be more appealing to the masses. You need to be able to charge on the go. Then you can take extended trips without the recharge anxiety. EV is a nice green gimmick but how nice will it be when power companies slap a nice healthy surcharge on your "at home" charging station?
