There was a big reveal this week of the 2018 TESLA 3 pure electric car available late 2017 at a price of US$35,000 with a range of at least 215 MILES which converts to roughly 360 KILOMETERS.

In a 24 hour period 195,000 people lined up with $1000. deposits and TESLA raised nearly 200 million dollars towards sales worth nearly 7 billion dollars for this vehicle.

..and where will all those new lithium batteries for these new cars come from...?

..well, from the new Gigafactory that Telsa is building in NEVADA on 1000 acres..!

thanks bill, that's just so awesome - my fav line is "net zero energy factory" and fav pic is the artist impression shown below with, i assume, pv roof panels installed - hopefully if a new kind of battery gets invented they can convert over to that - for now i'm glad they're at least going ahead with the best tech we've got

i'm ecstatic to now have a lipo electric vehicle, albeit just a scooter, but it's dam fun, and i may even get a pv panel to keep it charged - everyone in town here should have one!
