Bummer :( they are cool looking cars, but I wouldn't want one. Too cramped.

It didn't run out, it ran low. But it never failed. And the Officer who had used it last didn't plug it in after his shift. It'd be the same as if you grabbed a car that hasn't been filled up and was empty, then deciding to drive it like that. The only difference is the Tesla takes several hours to charge, not a couple minutes. But that'll change with time.

This is fake news, written to try and make the car look bad.

So your saying the mice stopped running on the treadmill to generate power for the car... Too bad.

John Smith is right. The story is a cheap smear job. Electric vehicles are the future. I live in the Detroit suburbs. Everyone with a big engineering presence here (GM, Toyota, Nissan, Ford, FCA, Bosch) is betting their futures on electrification and automation. EVs will keep gaining in range while recharge times fall.

I actually have an all-electric police motorcycle. It's made by Zero. My having been a cop years ago enabled my to buy this one (a showroom demo bike) from an otherwise cautious dealership. It makes almost no sound. It immediately draws people into questions and conversation. "I never even heard you roll up. What the hell is that?" 110-mile range, top speed is 100mph. 6hr recharge time from dead. And mine is 5yrs old. 1569877804046.png
