I see their cheapest model S car is $69,900. Good for them, if they can sell cars and make money in the Obama economy. Of course, as Waffler has pointed out, the engines become immobile "bricks" if the batteries become totally discharged.

It's unfortunate that the tax law gives this tax break only to people of such wealth as can purchase such an expensive car, while those of us who can only afford used cars must pay higher prices because so many were taken out of the market when the government paid to have them destroyed.
