    Regarding the "Plus" for the cell phone batteries ... one may be cheap, but I guarantee that 6,831 aren't cheap collectively. I doubt the cost is really a plus, and it seems it introduces a great deal of complexity. Interesting article though!

    Yeah but will they still be around in five years when the batteries start to lose charge in a major way?

    it really is a good looking car- if it can be a little cheaper it really would have mass appeal cant wait to drive one

    That battery pack sure sounds complicated. Any idea of the failure rate so far?

    Wow - this car would make one hell of a golf cart!
    Maybe mr. Woods should buy himself one...

    6,831 Lithium Ion cells, all quietly dying and in need of replacement in 3-5 years. So, while the cells may be cheap individually, can they be replaced individually and how much is it going to cost to replace the entire pack?

    there is probably a lot more that people did not know about the tesla car, but those were are really good facts
