I love Tesla. The cars are so cute! I currently drive a Volt but I love Mr. Musk. Give me one minute with him and I could suck the chrome of his Tesla Peter and get Tesla for life. Tesla has the best curves but I still love my Volt.

Electrics are a niche market for sure. How would you get a Detroit Electric serviced? The infrastructure for car manufacturing on this level does not exist. So buyers need extra vehicles and tons of money to keep up the early adopter joy and still meet travel needs. When the energy density doubles or triples again, the volume of sales of electrics will skyrocket.
