Re: Tesla's progress is amazing
The superchargers are there for the journeys where you need to stop and charge, not for you to use as a daily exercise, the fact that your nearest one is 50 miles away, means that you know you can currently travel 150 miles away, and still make it home with the help of said charger.
If you have a charger at home and solar panels why the hell do you need to charge anywhere else if your just using it on battery as a city runabout?
Plug in hybrids are built for running in the city on battery to cut polluiton, current BEV such as the Leaf are built for day to day city commute, Telsa is pushing the current manufacturers to help increase the take up of BEV as a full car rather than a second, city runaround.
I have to point out I run a Leaf as my only car, but it works for me as I have charging available at home (with solar panels) and at work, which is an easy commute across Newcastle and Gateshead. First long trip in car next weekend when I travel up to Aberdeen.
