    Model 3 and Bolt don't look like they're in the same class! For the same money, it's a no brainer to go with model 3!

    However, I think I personally still prefer the Volt more at this stage of the game. Depending on the price of gas or electricity, I can just run whatever's cheaper. I just wish Volt can deliver the mpg #s of prius.

    Hyundais Ioniq also looks interesting with better looks and better mpg but doesn't have Volts EV only range though...

    Anyway, thanks to Musk, EVs are more and more viable, but until we run out of gasoline, it'll probably continue to occupy small percentage of auto market!

    This could be pretty cool, if it weren't an attached garage.

    Spectacular Tesla Model S crash after flying 82+ft in the air


    It takes a lot of speed to flip a 5,000 lbs Model S with a low center of gravity, but fortunately and despite the severity of the crash, none of the 5 occupants in the Model S died.

    In fact, all five were all able to exit the vehicle without the help of the first responders, though their injuries were described as “serious but non-life threatening” and they were transported to the hospital by helicopter.
    For people wondering how it flew 82 ft through the air, here’s the ramp it hit at full speed

    How many times have they been doomed so far?

    It is an interesting angle, that Tesla could struggle to go mainstream (which means a bit down market from where they are now) and that quality rather than any electric issue could be what becomes their main blocker.
    But it's also something you can work on improving over time. That some companies haven't improved quality as quick as their competitors doesn't mean Tesla will be the same.
    It's a challenge, Musk seems good at challenges.

    Sort of on this topic.. Harley has announced they will be building a production Electric motorcycle within 5 years.

    Also i kind of wish Musk and Tesla would enter or at the very least advise in the motorcycle market as well.
