My question is how is the electrical grid going to support this technology? There are already brownouts every Summer, and adding all these cars to the grid will make it worse. I know Obama has said he will fix the infrastructure, but he can’t do that right away,if at all,and they are already producing these cars. The American public already pays ridiculous rates for electricity, at least in the Northeast, and the cost of the cars is prohibitive, even with incentives from the government.
