Exploring Hydrocarbon Depletion

I like to dream too...what if there were big parking lots on the edge of town with solar canopies and chargers. You park your Tesla there and climb in a person pod to go into town. They are self driving and that's all there is in town. No fear of being crushed. And when your done shopping you go back to the fully charged car and drive to your rural home. Just a possibility...NC State has already installed the first demo system.

But ditch the rails and causeways, this needs to be free roaming.

The electric car maker said that was a 70% rise on the same period of 2016.
It is a rebound for the US company after production problems late last year resulted in a 9% fall in deliveries in the fourth quarter.......
Last week China's Tencent Holdings bought a 5% stake in Tesla for almost $1.8bn.
That was a boost for the company which has been investing heavily in raising production and faces an expensive year, with the launch of the new Model 3......
I can't wait for the Model 3 to come out. After the first 300,000 are delivered and my stock is out of site I will buy my wife one to celebrate

Just so you know I don't sit around waiting for it...
It occurred to me that as Tesla rolls out the Model 3 they will also be building a world wide service network. They will need service technicians and shops in all areas of the country. So I looked at the Tesla website and sure enough they are hiring hundreds of people all over the world.
As you know my experience with electricity, autos, and service work directly applies to what they are looking for. Turns out there is a service facility in Charlotte NC and they have an opening for a service technician. Did I mention how Mother Earth smiles on me these days I updated my resume, wrote a killer cover letter, and applied for the job...wish me luck
I'm not sure I would leave the cushy job I have now, but just an interview would be exciting. But a full time service technician for Tesla would be big money.
I may never hear from them but it was fun just to apply.
