Yeah, $90,000 quite the deal! Tesla is good PR for electric cars but the pricing is wacked. I would LOVE it if they produced a "people's car" using their technology. Something in the $20,000 range with normal car specs for speed/acceleration.

I don't know if it's possible given their battery design.

Maybe if they started with a Tata Nano as the car base instead of a Lotus. A Nano sells for around $2,000 WITH an engine.

The whole point is, they are building what people wanted. A good looking electric vehicle.

The problem? The people that want it, and the people that want it and can afford it are two different things.
