Technology often has unintended consequences, and a discussion in another thread about hypothetical future Tesla minibuses made me wonder if the Spuercharger network might eventually result in the creation of Nomadic people who roam around the world in Tesla vehicles and live off the free electricity. Right now, the high cost of a Tesla is a barrier to entry of sorts, but what happens 20 or 30 years into the future? Imagine a world where EVs are no more expensive than ICEs are today, and where the secondary market is flooded with used Model S and X automobiles. These cars are built like tanks and their frames could last much longer than even your average Honda or Toyota. Bands of wandering people could buy these inexpensive Tesla cars and convert them for use in a new mobile lifestyle. With Supercharging being "free for life" of the vehicle, it would be relatively easy to live off the grid. Teslas could be converted into small mobile homes, and groups of Teslas could form caravans of travelers. Getting to cold? Head south to Georgia or west to Arizona for the season. Need to run a TV or computer or osmotic water purifier? The huge battery has you covered. How will Tesla Motors cope with the rise of Nomads and Nomadic use of Tesla assets? How will normal society cope if the Supercharger networks become clogged with roving bands of Tuskan Sand People, Jawas, and Crazy Old Wizards? I think Tesla's "secret plan" will win, but I think the Supercharger network will bring some surprises to out civilization.
