Keep in mind that our second-most-recently appointed Supreme Court Justice wrote an opinion supporting the idea that a trucking company was justified in firing a driver for choosing not to freeze to death while waiting for roadside assistance in sub-zero temperatures with no working heater.

There are several problems with comparing hydrogen cars to Tesla. First off, the fact that EVs can charge at home breaks the entire comparison; if you could ONLY charge a Tesla at a Supercharger, they never would have gotten off the ground. Second, if Tesla were not a startup (and therefore not expected to actually Read more

Based on my personal experience with the Gen1 and Gen2 Volts, ~50mi is right about the sweet spot where I could drive fully-electric on a normal basis (even in the winter, when battery capacity decreases and HVAC consumes more energy). Lugging around 100mi of battery is too much cost (higher car price) and too much Read more

Tesla has caused a lot of these automakers (including GM!) to immediately declare that all-electric BEVs are the only kind of EV that needs to be produced. Meanwhile Toyota, who has been resolutely opposed to BEVs from the beginning, is getting ready to release a PHEV RAV4 Prime with 39 miles of electric range (i.e. Read more
