    even more questions

    Some witnesses described it as miraculous that the driver of the Tesla was able to walk away from the crash

    I would have gone out and played the lottery

    They are pretty cool.. Very fast off the line..

    I don't know what happen to this one splitting in half, we have hundreds cruising around where I live and never heard or seen one fall apart or split in half on the road..

    I might own one in the future.. I'm not ruling it out..

    Tesla should have figured out small battery technology and make street bikes. Wouldn't have had the pissing match that goes on with Musk and shareholders as production of street bikes can roll out hundreds a day and battery production would be on a much smaller scale requirement. That being said, you might see a lot more bikes and bodies "ripped in half".

    A lot of competition in that market.

    "Experts contacted by The Drive explained that this sort of breakaway design is intentional in newer vehicles to protect the passenger cabin."

    Some pretty cool and WTF designs. Had no idea it was such a cluttered market. What do these charging stations charge to "fill up" the cars or bikes? Starting to see the chargers as some stations in Canada but not functional yet in my area.

    I have no idea what it cost to charge at a filling station. I know most around my area advertise quick 30 min charge that will get you something like close to capacity, but all EV's can have varying battery capacity. In my area a few hospitals have them and there are some public ones and only 2 Tesla ones that i know of, i assume a Tesla charging station can charge other EV's too and vice versa.
    I'm still driving my old SUV with a straight 6. Once it finally craps out, i plan on either a Prius or a Nissan Leaf.
    My job is only 4 miles away, and I hardly ever drive longer than 20+ miles anywhere.
