    Tesla Model S A Terrorizes Oil Indusry −

    This very short, almost content free article, references a July 2, 2015 Motor Trend piece Top 10 Greatest American Cars of All Time - Motor Trend All Pages


    More interestingly it references this article in the publication "Alberta Oil" Is Teslas leading source for oil and gas news
    The actual title of the Alberta Oil article is "Is Tesla’s Model-S the Beginning of the End for Oil?" But the article turns out to be a brief Q&A with the author of this book "The Powerhouse: Inside the Invention of a Battery to Save the World". Moderately interesting.

    good article, but I don't really think we need a big breakthrough in battery tech to really change the car industry, a drop in cost will be the real killer

    if Tesla can keep dropping the cost, then a 60kWh pack and supercharging is enough to destroy the oil industry and OPEC

    by 2020 the world may be a very different place
