    Cool. Perhaps one day we will get 347 miles at 75 mph using a 52kWh pack.

    That's something I love about electrics; more power, same efficiency. Tesla Roadster is more economical than MINI E or Leaf; try that comparo between a 911 turbo and an ICE MINI.

    This impresses me even more then. I originally thought "That's cool, just take it up to 25, click the cruise and go until it runs out of electrons." I wasn't aware the Roadster's cruise didn't work below 30 MPH.

    As the article mentioned I'd be wanting to dip my foot to access the (fun and flat) torque curve.
