You do realize that a Tesla's range is about from The Villages to Atlanta, GA?

And that when "idling" in heavy traffic no electricity has to be used in the Tesla. But gas often is used because it uses less gas to idle and pull forward than to turn a ICE on and off and on.

Most ICEs would not do well trying to make the trip to Atlanta on a heavily congested interstate.

But, each to their own.

Not to mention while sitting in grid lock you can activate the HEPA air filtration with Bioweapon Defense Mode for clean fresh cabin air. and it's American made! shown below in the glorious Red White & Blue!

We have a Chrysler Pacifica. We reuse our clothes and save our money and eat our leftovers and turn off lights and try not to pass gas.

Everyone does what they can to take care of Mother Earth.

Some things are just plain silly but every little bit helps the old lady said as she peed in the sea.

When you think Tesla also think SpaceX. Two technological companies on the cutting edge. Thank you Elon Musk.

And the Boring Company, and the space link internet, and more and more. A true renaissance man, and all American companies and products giving good living wage jobs to Americans.

Give me an old Mercedes 300 SD wagon, with a 900 mile range & you could run in on home heating oil, during a gas crisis--those were the days

Do you have to go to the dealer for service? Do they have pick up service? Would really hate to drive to Orlando for anything. Our current dealer is a dream. Never have to set foot in the dealership for purchase or service.
