taken from the link above ===>"The vehicle is slated for delivery by the end of 2021 with a starting price of just $25,900 for the 250 mile (400 km) version of the car. Upgrading to the 1,000 mile (1,600 km) version still lands customers with a reasonable $44,900 price tag."

I wish them luck .... their definition of reasonable is considerably different than mine

Hmmm, at $25900, I would guess the final loan for me would be around the same as the Corolla my daughter drives, which is $488 on a balance of $30k.
In my case I'm buying 2.5 tanks a week at around $28 each. That comes out to around $280 savings if I really can drive on the sun without home charging. Charging would add about $2/day, 24 workdays each month.
So the baseline car would likely cost me $200 /mo. Certainly the $44k model does not make economic sense. Unless it out lasts the loan I'd have to make, by a long-long way.
