    "240V - Ridiculous!"

    Who has access to a 240V power source anyways? Ridiculous.... You'd have to rewire your whole house.

    "mileage"

    I believe it works out to ~120 MPG with Tesla, so we could technically turn into a major oil exporter with every car like this :) The only real drawback is that I could only take one Tesla girl for a drive with me.

    "except..."

    "World without oil"? If your local utility only operates nuclear or coal-fired power plants. Still, it's a start, albeit an expensive one.

    "+200 miles"

    That range is realistic but it needs 240V to recharge for 3.5 hours, so it's not like you can stop at Waffle House to do that while getting your lunch... It's not very practical on road trips but I'd kill to get one anyway :-P

    "How far"

    How far did it make on a single charge in real world environment? First step on a new road or another expensive misstep in the wrong direction? Only time will tell.
