This past weekend, I had an interesting conversation about electric vehicles. I was at a birthday party chatting with an older gearhead (mid-60’s) about Tesla and what it would take to get him to buy a Model S or Model X. The gentleman was definitely from the old school, and his preferred automotive flavor was the Chevrolet Corvette, a fact made obvious by no less than three generations of the all-American sports car taking residence in his garage. But, being from California, the allure of the modern EV prompted him to visit the local Tesla store. Long story short, the gearhead in question liked the Model S for its stylish exterior, nice cabin, and impressive performance, but couldn’t get over the limited range per charge.
