It's my understanding that the EV1 was NEVER sold, only leased. By selling ANY EVs, Tesla has already done a lot.

I'm not sure what the actual price on the Volt will end up being, but if it's closer to $40K than $30K, I think the Tesla S would be the better vehicle.

Not that I can afford either. (Said the guy driving the Electric Metro with the $12 batteries......)

Heck, maybe the next Tesla will be $20,000 one?!
