The first one to innovate the battery wins

Is Tesla's gigafactory for production of batteries only or is there research going on there? The battery is a major key to this whole thing.

Re: Power outages hit home for electric car drivers

We can see how negative propaganda surfaces by this thread alone.

Re: The autonomous Ioniq

An interesting perspective was brought to my attention about self driving vehicles recently. We can read a lot of articles on how the self driving vehicle will change cities.
