quote: Elon Musk will not have such luck. There are other problems facing EV's that will have to be overcome to make it viable out in the field. Charging - just how many super charging stations can the electricity grid sustain? Power's gotta come from somewhere. Raw Resources - unless Musk plans to open up a few lithium mines this price isn't going to drop, quite the opposite. New technology - there's no way batteries will see the research advances ICE cars saw in the beginning. It's not new tech, advances in EV efficiency and batteries have been slow indeed.
