    Machines should work. People should think.

    I've been shadow banned. I can't respond to posts other than to edit them, I can't create new posts and cannot do PMs. I guess I did something to piss the admins off?

    I'm glad that Musk saw the light:

    I got way back in the line for a Model 3 to give them time to iron out the kinks. If they're still having issues when my number comes up, I'll opt out.

    Same boat here. I want to see charging stations as many as gas stations.

    I have a reservation for the Model 3 as well. At this point I doubt I'll actually order one, because while I love most things about the car, I am not a fan of the user interface. Additionally by the time my order is ready the $7,500 tax credit will be long gone.
    The good news is there will be a lot of new EV's and PHEVs to choose from in the next couple of years, plus my new house has solar and a 240V car charger, so it will be ready for whatever EV or PHEV I purchase.

    PS: I think it's going to be a long time before autonomous driving really takes off. I'd be surprised if a car can drive itself on 95% of US roads in all weather conditions by 2030

    Do me a favor, since you know your shit in this area, you would update us on what's coming down the pike. Also, the challenges and such?

    Whew, here I thought I was the only one missing something because legislature alone would set this back 50 years. I don't even see it in 2030. Maybe 2060.
