“Just wait ‘till Teslas and Leafs (Leaves?) start to line up at the charging stations.”

Good point. For example, just doing the math, it will take a full MEGAWATT to charge one of these beasts in 5 minutes (assuming that they find a battery that can take it). That is some serious power, as in like a small town. There will be a big infrastructure hit, assuming that these cars ever go anywhere.

Even more bizarre, Tesla’s charging stations are solar powered.

“You will be able to drive free forever on pure sunlight. I think it’s pretty hard to beat that.”

What could possibly go wrong?
