    Think about this bulls,

    Somebody's going to make a lot of money when it crashes. It is more than obsolete, it is nonfunctional. A 30-minute charge at a Tesla Supercharging Station will provide a half charge, good for about 140 miles. That's about 2 hours driving. So rather than traveling at 70 mph, you're only going to manage 56 mph with stops for recharges. It gets worse. Consider my least favorite road, I-95. The typical vehicle volume between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. is about 5,000 vehicles per hour. So on that 140-mile stretch of roadway you have about 10,000 vehicles, of which 30% are locals that recharge at home. That leaves 7,000 vehicles that need a charge plus about 2,000 sitting in the charging stations. That comes to about 60 charging stations per mile. It ain't gonna work.
