BBC News - Tesla boss Elon Musk hints at technology giveaway
Any TMC members in the UK attending this event?
from Tesla Motors forums, some nice pictures, but according to the poster no new information. perhaps Elon will speak to the press some more while he is there.

"Mr Musk told the BBC: "We don't want to cut a path through the jungle and then lay a bunch of landmines behind us."
makes me think the charging network is "the path through the jungle". wondering if Tesla will offer up access, which of course would require vastly expanding the plan for the network we don't have huge waiting lines.
Tesla Model-S launch: an electric car to answer even Clarkson's objections | Environment | theguardian.com
From The Guardian in the UK two hours ago with some UK posts, as a snapshot it is fun to read others posts and views, worth a quick look.

To me, the "path through the jungle" is their mass production of electric cars with the following revolutionary aspects -
long battery life
No-one else has been able to do these yet and Tesla is tearing away with the market. That doesn't actually accelerate the transition to sustainable transport.
It could also be the charging socket... so that non-Tesla cars could pull up to superchargers if so desired.
I have been expecting and have wondered why wait on giving away the charging socket, charging software and some sort of paid access to the Superchargers. It could easily be free superchargers at first with a charge for a charge later.
Tesla Press release on UK launch, including:
"Superchargers enable long distance travel but also, in a city where off street parking is rare and expensive, Model S customers will be able to access a network of Superchargers across London to charge, quickly and for free, at their convenience," said Elon Musk. "We are looking at locations across the capital to place our first set of inner city Superchargers."
I believe Elon is referring to leading the industry "through the jungle" into the age of EV cars, not just charging stations.
Some footage of the delivery ceremony for RHD in London and the following press conference:
Thats a great video - thanks for posting.
Just wish he would concentrate on putting SC's in Canada first.
The Model S has been out 3 years and still no SC network!
Britain and China should not have received them before us.
Signed, an upset S owner!
