I drive a car with batteries... every Sunday....on the fcking golf course. That is my limit.
When they make a "real" car without a combustion engine that I can drive as far and and as fast?...Ill think about it. Im not interested in wearing a damn automobile that has no power, size or range.

Pretty cool. Running a stripped down Tesla in 1/8 mile races. It does haul ass off the line. I doubt he would have won a single race in 1/4 mile. Still pretty sweet.

Right? It's not going to win a 400-mile NASCAR race or haul a large boat to the lake but speed is not an issue (software-limited to 155 mph). Plug it in overnight (non-coal power source) and you have enough range for the next day, just like your phone. No emissions, no oil spills, low maintenance.

I could see my wife driving one....I could likely never be in that market. I do a lot of towing and at 6'4"...very few vehicles fit my comfort needs.

RE: More downward pressure on oil prices coming
So here we are in the freeway, the LA Freeway, the land of the PC Liberalturd ***** hat wearing Clinton voting public. We get into one of those famous traffic jams, how long can the electric power on one of those cars last? There will probably be a lot of combustion engine driving people waving goodbye to the drivers on the shoulder of the freeway. That's the future for those cars. They can't handle long periods of freeway traffic as electric power is only good for a certain period unlike the comb. eng.

That's a copper mine.

Lithium is extracted from salt water primarily. Lithium mines look like Caribbean blue lakes.

RE: More downward pressure on oil prices coming
I drive between 40,000 & 50,000 miles a year mainly for WKU sports and trips to Ft Lauderdale or the the Gulf (PCB). The last the years we averaged 8 trips to Ft Lauderdale which is a 14 to 15 hour drive and 6 trips to the Gulf and thats a 9 hour drive. If a vehicle can't handle enough space for two weeks of travel and make that drive I will not be interested in it. I don't want to turn a one day drive, a long one, still one day...into 2.5 or 3 days. So unless a charge can take place with in minutes long trips will be out of the question.

Not to mention the time sitting in line waiting to charge up. Three to five minutes and you are full of gas and moving on.

But I sure would love to see more of you driving those plugged up cars....the lower gas prices get, I like.

With an 85 kw model s, you can get about 200 miles of charge in 20 minutes. Considerably worse than 3-5 minutes for a full up, but it would add hours to a very long trip, not days.

The next generation of chargers that Tesla and Volkwagen (and probably others) are working on are targeting 300 miles in less than 10 minutes. VW has stated theirs will do 6 minutes.

Whether it happens remains to be seen, but I think most people would have thought the current supercharger wouldn't be possible 10 years ago. Technology changes fast.

Lithium battery and solar cells needs have created huge demand and price increases for cobalt and rare eaths and manganese too. Been investing in those industries as well as lithium.
