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.

Then it's absolutely useless to me.

Tessa actually have 5000 pounds of towing capacity. It's just going to crush your range. That said, I don't think most people are towing boats hundreds of miles.

5000 lbs? LOL When I get the boat I want the boat alone will be over half that before you add motor, tackle, fuel, trailer, etc.

And me.

And roughly half the population of the USA.

Not because of the boat per se, but because the range is still too limited.

I can't drive it to Dallas or to visit my family in Alabama. That makes it useless to me. I could use it to commute to work, but if I want to go to Houston for, say, an Astros game in the evening after work, no can do.

I'm 100% in favor of electric cars in the long haul. But they're not ready for many people yet, and not affordable by many others. The only way to solve those issues is from experienced gained by having those for whom they do work, and by whom they can be afforded, purchase and use them. But they're not any kind of reasonable solution for enough people to matter until those issues can be overcome.

Look at the rate of Tesla engine failure and the mileage that they usually go ka-put.

Most families don't use their boat-hauling monster truck for everyday commuting and errands. The Tesla will replace the ICE Ford Tauruses in the multi-car households.

My boat hauler is my daily driver, as is the boat haulers of all my friends and family. My wife routinely has to drive further than the range of the Tesla for her job.

Patience, Grasshopper, these things take time.

And that time hasn't come yet.

I appreciate those who are giving them a trial, because that is the only way that we will get the actual experiences necessary as one component of the improvement process. But I have no hard feelings toward anyone who doesn't, because at this point there are simply millions and millions of people for whom they make no sense. Like me.
