;-) I got rid of 2 american cars with HEMIs. A Grand Cherokee, and a Challenger. Used a lot of gas, and didn't enjoy driving them anymore. Sold the Challenger in 2013 and Jeep this xmas. being able to afford to buy and run the vehicles has not much to do with what you should run. A new Tesla X will be about the price of BOTH my last vehicles. Hence the time to save. :-)

Tesla has an adapter for CHAdeMO, I wonder if there will be one for the opposite. At the rate the Tesla charging stations pop up vs the other electrical one, I'm guessing Tesla will be more present (from their deployment map).
A Micra EV ? Hummm 0-100km/h in 5 seconds.
