  • Interesting stuff, not your "run of the mill shit!"

    This company produces the Tesla Electric car out of Palo Alto, near San Francisco in the US. They launched publicly onto the share market yesterday and the share price soared by 41% form what they expected. Seems the US is waking up about alternative energy now that they are drowning in their own oil.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Motors

    "The Tesla Roadster, the company's first vehicle, is the first production automobile to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production EV with a range greater than 200 miles (320 km) per charge.[3] The base model accelerates 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and, according to Tesla Motor's environmental analysis, is twice as energy-efficient as the Toyota Prius.[4] The company had produced its 1,000th Roadster as of January 2010.[5] The company has delivered Roadsters in at least 25 countries as of May 2010.[6] Tesla began producing right-hand-drive Roadsters in early 2010 for the UK and Ireland markets, and the company is widely anticipated to begin right-hand-drive deliveries in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore."

      Hmmmm.............. interesting that they are called Tesla.


      Nikola Tesla (Serbian: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was an inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer. He was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity, and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, which helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.

            We all know that one day the price of these cars will come down. Charging time will reduce dramatically and kms between charges will increase as battery technology improves. It's all good... except for the way power is currently generated!

                        Do you know, one of the greatest problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas? Now, thoughts and ideas, that interests me. - Margaret Thatcher
