The second video below the fold is Tesla Motors, showing me around an early version of the $100,000 Tesla electric roadster, available first quarter of 2008. The video includes a look at the Tesla's trunk, the plug and exterior. Tesla also makes its usual critique of other electric car companies calling them "glorified golf carts." Later in the video, I am told they plan to release a $50,000 to 60,000 electric car in 2010. This is the WhiteStar.
I asked Miles a question posed by one of our readers, about a file with DOT but the Miles representative said he was unaware of the situation. Miles and Tesla did have displays right beside each other and I noticed EDTA's, Electric Drive Transportation Association, booth had a list of companies that included Miles and Tesla. So, hopefully, Tesla and Miles will talk to each other in the future.
