"Tesla Motors will roll out a "White Star" family sedan by 2008," which will be a sporty four door family car at roughly half the $89k price point of the Tesla Roadster and the third model will be even more affordable"

Speaking of electric cars, here's a story about one in today's Los Angeles Times:

If you look at the special features on the DVD, there's a short about the demise of street cars across the U.S.

There's a page for "Who Killed the Electric Car" on MySpace. It's on my friends list.

I've been noticing electric cars on the street lately. A lot of those charging stations are still there, so at least some of the infrastructure is still there.

A friend of mine claims there'll be an electric car in '09 for "about $25,000" called The Think. He may get one.

I was glad that Disneyland did something new with Autopia, but I think they should've had electric cars or ones with solar panels like the ones pictured above.
