As my loyal readers know, I’ve been a fan of the Tesla electric cars, both the Roadster and the Type S Sedan.
It does appear that they do appear to have a serious design flaw.
If it hits that state, it’s a very expensive brick. Has to be carted back to the factory and have the batteries replaced.
Cost estimates for that procedure range from $30,000 t $40,000.
It is flaws like this that are blocking widespread acceptance.
Oh, and that high end luxury car price tag. You won’t see a lot of electric vehicles until they are price comparable with a used mini-van. That is what it’s going to take to have soccer moms drive them.
