    Every morning I drop my 5 year old off at kindergarten on my way to work.
    This morning it was cold for and we were stopped behind an SUV, clouds billowed up from its exhaust pipes.
    My son says: "Look dad, air pollution!"
    ( Yes I know that what was visible was mostly water vapor )
    I replied in the affirmitive.
    He continued: "That's because its a gas car right?"
    I replied: "Yes, our car doesn't do that."
    "Because its electric."
    I said: "Hopefully by the time you grow up, nobody will sell those cars anymore."
    He replied: "That would be awesome."

    ( I figure the average person ( in this country ) is "grown up" by 25. )

    They're so cute at that age. Dad knows everything. Just wait 'til those hormones kick in. It's amazing how much intelligence and knowledge you'll lose in just a few short years. :smile:

    Keep it up richkae, its the next generation of consumers that are gonna follow their parents lead and demand ZEV's. My 8-year-old daughter has asked more than once when Tesla will start making trucks because "trucks stink".
