    Ford sued them for using "Model E"?! They must be a real bunch of "A-Holes" - also trademarked and copyrighted.

    Nearly at a price point that most can afford.

    I heard rumors of Toyota coming out with a hydrogen car next year, this could pour rain on Tesla parade.

    Toyota's alternative vehicles don't currently share any price points with Tesla. A prius isn't made for the same person a Model S.

    Also, Tesla just released all their patents for everyone to use. They welcome the competition. They think of it as the more companies making alternative vehicles, the more recharging stations there will be (granted Toyotas will need H2 not electricity, but maybe they'll do both at one station). It will also help promote the idea of non-gasoline cars so people are more comfortable buying them.

    except the rise of charging stations makes it not much different than people who forgot to stop at a gas station.

    I can't wait for actual reports of people driving from LA to SF non-stop.

    I do doubt that statement since there are 2 major uphill drives that you make which would it risky to not stop.

    And?
    I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself, but that is over the top in my opinion.
    Besides the sequence is S, X, and then 3.
