    This may have been asked before, but has anyone talked about being able to drive up onto a ramp on the back of a car-transporter-like truck while traveling on the highway and then getting your tesla charged for 30 minutes or so then driving back off it? All while still travelling at highway speeds? Naturally all auto-pilot controlled.

    I thought about this when I read German Environment Minister gets rid of her Tesla Model S as her official government car. The article said he may have only been getting 300km because he was traveling at high speeds on the autobahn.

    Too sci-fi for me but you got vision so I am sure it can be done but not soon!

    You would either need to have a system where the truck had a lift or something to pick up the car from the road or have a treadmill or moving track of some sort for the car to drive onto and then have it gradually slow down. You couldn't drive the car at highway speeds onto a stationary surface.

    Good point. Autopilot-controlled temporary rear-wheel drive only mode.
