Easth Day 2015-04-26 7 BW

Not surprisingly, the Earth Day festival had a display of electric cars. Three of them were Teslas, the luxury rocket of no-emission vehicles. Note the storage space where the engine would normally be. My son had a chance to drive one once. He said it went from zero to OMG in near-complete silence. 

They make me drool but are a wee bit out of my price range.  So, back to my slightly worn but very well made Honda. Much more practical.

Always nice having something to dream about. I was seriously thinking about a Lexus c200h as in between but perhaps it also will be a dream.

From zero to OMG so speedily, I somehow imagined them to be quite slow.. Mo d you, what the heck do I know about cars :)

I'm right there with you with a slightly worn out and very well made Honda. It just keeps going. I do have a friend who bought a Tesla and loves it. I probably would too if I could afford it.

I haven't seen many of them around here, but I'm not often looking at cars (and really can't tell what model is what just at first glance anyway).

I have a few auto 'wants', dreams. Luckily, practicality wins out.

the new model may be in the price range of mer-mortals

I'm not drooling about Teslas.

One of my flickr contacts bought one of the first Tesla's, but he is a billionaire so he could afford it.
