    7. Dont need to wait in the heat to fill her up.
    8. I love plugging in at my home.
    9. I love the smell of clean air.
    10. no oil changes, no waiting for oil changes
    11. no radiator, less moving parts.
    12. minimal brake changes, maybe after 50,000 one brake change with a TSLA
    13. TSLA doesnt need a head gasket, less moving parts
    14. No timing belt needed, less moving parts
    15. less moving parts = less breakdowns, less maintenance cost.
    16. no worries about a transmission, less moving parts

    18. no coolant needed, less moving parts.
    19. oil never leaks, no oil needed, less moving parts
