I use my Zero DS as my commuter vehicle, which works well since I have seasonal work (greenhouse). It pays off big time: my boss lets me charge at work (I don't drink coffee which others get for free), and it so it costs me around 15 cents for the 50 km round trip, compared to $7.50 if I take my Explorer. It replaced my civic, which cost around $6 to drive. But I don't do it for the $; again, there are many more hidden costs to driving any ICE, and I know it is the future of transport. Caring more about short-term $ than anything else is why China pwns America, and we're in a financial mess overall. [/rant] But really, the best part is silently cruising around, talking to people on sidewalks as I cruise past and hearing the birds.
And it's not tough to compete with BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Cadillac, etc?

This guy did normal urban driving and went 105 miles. If TM got into the market I think they would really have some competition from Zero
I'd hope it would look better than the big ears this bike has.
Can A 2012 Zero S Electric Motorcycle Really Cover 100 Miles?
Electric Carver is in my dreams for about 4 years now. I tried to pull off a DIY variant, haven't progress beyond a scaled model yet.
There is someone further along though: Lynx Cars
It looks like they are trying to modernize the design a bit, close the nose etc.
They are planning a 14 kWh pack, which is a bit too small for my taste. I'd prefer at least 20 kWh giving around 100 miles range of spirited driving.
There are more pictures on FaceBook
I believe in Tesla as a concept, a brand, and a suite of products. No matter who conceived, started, runs, or maintains, I hope it ultimately prevails and lasts.
