RE:Tesla is now selling 60 (kWh) and 60D models starting at $66K

RE:Mercedes will offer wireless charging in 2017

Yes, I think so. For the majority of new EV buyers, I think they will opt for wireless charging.

I'd also wonder about the efficiency of the onboard AC charger.

RE:Mercedes will offer wireless charging in 2017

I would hope the do! Anything else is just plain dumb. There's no space in the EV market for proprietary wireless charging.... if wireless is the way of the EV charging future then it all needs to be compatible with each other.

RE:Model 3 reveal - part 2 still to come

I want to see the rear glass turned into a hatch as the tiny trunk opening does not offer a lot of utility, even though Tesla says a bike fits in their easily

RE:Tesla autopilot vs human drivers and lane position graph

Interesting that the human offsets them away from oncoming traffic towards the right side of the lane, it would be nice if the AutoPilot worked more like a human in this situation.

RE:Chevy confirms Spark production will end with Bolt EV

Spark EV is already $25K MSRP, with some selling for under $19K before incentives, and lots for $22K/$23K.

Re: At what point do we become concerned with Tesla?

I think their stock is in for a rough ride with production announcements, possible delays, possible recalls on mass-produced Model 3 etc. I don't think $1000 deposit for a Model ...
