An 80% charge in 30 minutes is only from a Tesla supercharger, not just plugging in a wall outlet somewhere.

That's because those things use, what, 1000v? One touch and you go KABOOM


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Average car weight now: 4,079 Average Tesla car weight: 4,608

The weight isn't that much more for cars right now so I doubt it would be a massive reduction in weight you can haul.

24000 taxi's coming out that will be fully automated running a fleet in cities so to say the tech is way down the line is just kidding yourself and it's just a matter of time. It's being worked on all the time and getting way better.

Powering stations are growing a lot and I see them more and more even in some remote ass CA location. There on there way it's just a reality. And there easier to install that a new gas station so it won't take long.

I think we just need to get used to the idea that it's coming.
