If, and when, new electric carts come down the $"teens", you bet your ass I will be driving one. We will see a drastic price decrease within next several generations of EVs.

As for this "journalist," what a douche. Personally, I'm no fan of electric cars, but given the chance to review one I'd like to think I would drive it and review it just like any other car I had done the same with. The fact that he changed up his agenda just because it was an electric car is just the tip of the iceberg.

It's called socially engaged advocacy these days.

I think it would be difficult to drive an electric car like a gasoline powered car without getting stranded by a depleted battery or delayed by extended charging time.

The issue appears to be that the car may not perform as claimed without some attention to details not made clear in the promotional press.

As an aside, Musk made his fortune by starting Paypal. How do most people feel about Paypal. Perhaps he is still the guy who started such a beloved company.
