    I understand how he feels, I keep finding excuses to drive my MX too. "No problem honey, I will run to the store to get some milk." "Sure, I will pick up the kids." 'I need to take a little trip to pick up a thingy, but back in an hour.":rolleyes:

    Hope he has the AP1 car so he could drive faster than 50 MPH

    Not to rain on anybody's parade, but it is perfectly possible he just has a deadly fear of flying ...

    That article is total BS, claiming it will take him 9 hours to drive in a tesla vs. 6 hours in an ICE.

    The screenshot in the article shows two charge stops. One for 60 minutes and the other for 20. That is ZERO extra time vs. an ICE with a lunch stop and a bathroom break.

    Sad to see this misinformation in a popular article that will get lots of readership.

    Sounds right, I've had mine for 2 months and I'm already pushing 5,000 miles and I've never put more than 13,000 miles on a car in a year. 1,300 mile road trip next month!!!

    Not to rain on your parade but he flies at least 42 times a year for his job. He's a professional basketball player. He also is Spanish and can't drive home.
