“If Teslas last long enough, they may be well worth the price. However, until their average lifespan is more clearly defined, the math can’t add up, and they thereby remain just another luxury item — no different than any other one of the latest gadgets and fads in our high-spending society.”

“It’s our mission as ovdei Hashem to save the planet and go green!”

“It can save a lot of money in the long run, and with increasing gas prices, this is the way to go. Eventually gas cars will be extinct, and the only option we will have are electric cars.”

“I’m paying a fortune for my 2022 Honda Odyssey each month — $600. And the gas prices are sky high. A Tesla seemed above my lifestyle, and I didn’t even bother looking into them. However, now I’m thinking that they do seem to be more inexpensive in the long run than I had thought. And the lack of gas expense is a huge boon. Oh well, maybe next time…”
