    Have there been studies on possible health effects of ev's?

    To the OP, I have thought the same thing...if i remember my physics correctly, large enough electric fields can cause a magnetic field to develop...i guess the field would be located around the motor, which sits in the rear of the vehicle...for the driver, i would imagine that the impact would...

    Has anyone actually used the 3 year buy back program?

    Hi, I wanted to know if anyone has returned their car after the 36 month period based on their buy back policy. Also, there is a clause that states that in order to use their buy back policy, that you must have serviced the vehicle with Tesla every year. Does anyone know how strictly this...

    Electric Bill 50% Higher Since Purchasing 2 Months Ago

    I've been on the Florida section of this forum, and most people say that going with TOU is not worth it, especially since we have much heavier AC demand during the day - - - Updated - - - I set it to 40 amps, but the car ultimately is charging around 30 amps
