    I read about it on ABG at 9:57 - and the show started at 10:00, so it was just in time. Apparently if you miss it you can tune in on CBS's website to watch it. I'm recording it so if you're not in the US and can't get on their website, PM me and I'll be happy to send you the clips.

    Well, the guy didn't win the Tesla. But I was surprised to see *three* electric vehicles on the show. There was also an electric off-road vehicle and a Zero motorcycle.

    After giving the horsepower rating, the announcer said it was 110V. (snicker)

    That was good press for Roadster. Many member of the viewing audience are not familiar with EVs. I'd be curious to know if Roadster orders take a "bump" over the next several weeks.

    From viewers of the Price is Right? I'm not sure that demographic is what you think it is.

    I know what you mean by the demographics. Perhaps they will purchase for their grandchildren or great-grandchildren :cool:
