The sexy but expensive roadster called Tesla has accepted incentives and training grants for it's new employees when it builds it's production plant in the SF Bay Area! The cars cost about $60K now, but are on the road, and they aren't partner manufactured by GM or other existing automakers! This car is 100% electric! Production should start around here by 2010!

Developed over the past 10 years. Current economy not what was expected during developement.
I hope they can overcome this little problem.
And how do you charge this thing? Plug it in and charge it up with 'lectricity produced by burning coal? Wondering if that really helps the situation.
Probably Not,

will be one half the Tesla's price.

Hmmm.... I wonder... if GM really did have to file for bankruptcy would one of the "requirements" for bailing them out be that they drop the Chevy Volt ?

I suspect he would be tearing H.A.A.R.P. apart with his bare hands ! and I believe Tesla might agree that steam , magnetic and hydrogen power are superior for transportation .

The production of it's NiCd batteries is far more "environmentally damaging" than generating electricity from coal. Besides, there's no way I'd feel safe driving that little POS 80mph. Also I'd be willing to bet that it won't go 120 miles AT 80mph. Internal combustion just can't be beat for the forseeable future.

I'm just bumping this thread up. Pay me no mind...

It's actually a good bump. I'm about 50 miles from SF, about 45 from where the plant will be. It's going to create a ton of jobs in the area, and have a HUGE amount of media coverage. I'm actually quite excited about it.
