Tesla takes you quietly and dignified on your last ride

An extended Tesla Model S modified in a European-style hearse with large windows to let your love ones see you in your beautiful casket. Environmentally -minded, you have a classy clean-emission last ride as you do your duty and create compost for the world.

Well heck I've heard many, many worse ideas. And frankly the styling looks awesome. Also makes me hope they will modify that a bit and build us some wagons

Though my hearse, if I have one, will darn sure be an amply befinned '59 Cadillac taking me to the incinerator

The least environmentally-friendly part of this is the composting?

I am pretty sure that embalming a corpse and sealing it are a poor method.

Good thing we pay extra for it.

I'm paying disreputable people to illegally bury my body in an undisclosed and unmarked location. The rest of the money that is normally spent on the dead will throw one hell of a party.

Redpoint,

It seems likely they will just dump you somewhere...

Pay them to dig the hole, then party inside of it?

Sometimes I wonder how many wealthy old men with heart conditions pay exciting young women to help them shuffle on.

Point is, I'm not asking the government for permission to die, or pay them for the privilege. Requiring a license to transport a dead body is absurd considering there is no such requirement to transport living bodies.

Considering that we are not required to hold a license to carry parts of slaughtered animals that we use as a protein source, your point actually makes sense.

Before I need this car I'd love to see if Tesla try their hand at mobile homes. Guess in that case design is supremely important, you are supposed to spend most of your time in that space. I'm a bit obsessed with the idea and can't wait to see and try it myself (though it will probably affect lots of aspects of day-to-day life that we've used to https://tranio.com/world/spotlight/s...y-market_5354/ ) But maybe not Anyway it sounds fun to me

That would be interesting to say the least.
