    A very long story in today's G&M on EVs. The story has suprisingly little mention of Teslas, other than some inaccuracies regarding SCs. It focuses more on the incumbent manufacturers and talks more about the Bolt, Leaf, etc.

    It's a fairly realistic appraisal of the situation but seems a bit pessimistic.

    Exactly why I stopped reading it. There are other good sources of news online.

    If you're using Firefox, hit the "Enter Reader View" immediately as soon as the button appears. It's at the end of the URL in the address bar. This will prevent the popup telling you to subscribe.

    Not worth reading. Very simplistic take on EV's and the myth that they depend on ever more government intervention to succeed. Not even well researched to be honest. I can't believe this was printed in the Globe. It reads like it was written for a small University paper. Tesla's can charge up for a 400km trip in 1 minute? but 100km in the city would take 2 minutes because stop and go drains more battery. They wrote an article for the Globe and don't even know about Regen? Yikes.

    I read the article today (Saturday ‘s Globe was still in the lounge at work from the weekend). I concur with your original post. Really nothing new in the article. And wow, really off on the paragraph on Tesla Superchargers.
