    Why do you post 2011 articles from partisan sites that use 2009 sales figures, continue to talk about the Chevy Volt, and interject ACA into a Tesla S thread and expect anyone to take you seriously?

    That dirty little secret about electric cars. And the cost to continue to use those cars are important. Not all of it is bad, but it's not al rosy either. I'm gad Tesla is here to show us the real way to create a demand for this new technology, because GM and our government are lost, completely lost..

    Politics is the reason why were even talking about government intervention into the private sector, and our government is directly involved in acquiescing the HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY. Electric cars are the future, the problem is how the private sector makes it happen without the help of tax revenue subsidies.

    Twenty states generate more than 50% of their electricity from coal. I guess this is a secret?

    Thank God that electric cars arent dead. I mean, what would we do with all the infrastructure that has been created for them.

    FYI, if you live in Florida and charge your electric car, it's most likely coming from natural gas or nuclear. Which makes it pretty darn clean across the board.

    Try building a new nuclear plant (for all the new electric car users)... see what happens.

    There's actually a lot of money available if you want to build one. The problem is nobody does.

    Few people realize that. They think it's some regulatory thing. It's a startup costs thing.

    Yeah, it's freaking hilarious that we all have to pay more in taxes for all the subsidies these car makers and buyers are getting for free.

    For example, Vogtle has new units that have been approved for two years ... still not up!
