    Tinting only side windows?

    25% tint on the sides, 5% on rear and absolutely nothing on the front. I would only tint front if I was never going to drive at night!!

    I saw that...it was your final words of 'range good enough' suggesting that range anxiety isn't an issue as the current range on the vehicles is good enough. I would argue that point, hence my reply.

    My post is valid. You were saying the current range is enough...hence my reply.

    There you go again, you are just looking for the answer YOU want and already have in your head. Total inability to see others perspective. Its quite obvious BOTH will drive more adoption. Longer range will switch more ICE owners and cheaper will ensure larger numbers of less well-off who can buy...

    Who is talking about anxiety from range? The vast majority of owners want more. If you don't, good for you. What is 'good enough' for you wont necessarily be good enough for others. What if I told you your salary was 'good enough' and no more raises for you? Your home was 'good enough', don't...

    Again, you only see EV drivers through YOUR lens...

    Then your point was nonsense. Extra range incentivizes people to move from ICE to EV as an EV then requires charging around the same amount of times as an ICE needs fuel. I think you can see from these comments that you are on your own when it comes to not wanting more range!

    Makes your point? Hardly. Your point was people don't need more than 250 miles range if we had infrastructure everywhere it could possibly be needed. I agree with that but we don't have that yet, nor is it likely in the next couple of decades, if perhaps ever. Bigger batteries to go further are...

    Actually the range was between 130-200 miles. Model T had a 10 gallon tank and economy was between 13 and 21 mpg according to Ford...not bad considering...about as far as a Tesla M3 SR in a Nebraska winter...

    You are talking reducing the size of the battery (ie making it cheaper) but through efficiency get the same mileage a larger battery gets today? Sure, Tesla will always offer SR models for people that just city drive (Model 2?). For people that like choice and can afford it, there and always...

    To borrow a phrase...you are looking at it short term...batteries will get more efficient...range will follow! Long Live Range!
