    They are planning a factory in China but you are right. After firing 400 factory workers, I don't think he will make any goal.

    Sorry, but.electric is always the next "breakthrough" away from being mainstream.....unfortunately, every "breakthrough" has failed to be commercially viable.

    Maybe one day they will get it, but it is dubious.

    Actually...this new technology change will change the dynamics of everything electronics. Even your cell phone will double in storage and maybe fast charge in less than time that is seen today. LOL (had to laugh here)...Apple fanatics will claim it was an Apple patent.

    The only change that will be necessary for electric propulsion to become main stream, is the infrastructure will be needed where Musk stated, a battery pack can be changed out in matter of minutes. If not, the battery pack should be able to charge to 100 percent in matter of minutes and not an hour.

    Correct, but I have a feeling they'll get it right someday. I hope so, anyway. I've wanted an electric car for a long time, but I refuse to buy one until it is cost-competitive with ICE cars (and I mean cost-competitive WITHOUT government incentives).

    Yup, that's the key right there Somber. I won't be buying one for driveway bling.
