not a big issue

Big difference between a tesla and a big SUV or pickup.

120v charging sucks.
When I was stuck 120v charging if I drove the leaf more than 50 miles per day I was fighting a losing battle to keep it charged as I have no charging at work or public chargers.
A truck or SUV that uses around twice as much power to go the same distance is going to suck twice as much.
I await the angry bickering on face book and the forums.

Even with my Chevy volt 120 volt charging is not good. I would not be happy with my volt if we did not have 240 charging. The 2019 can charge in just over 2 hours we are at 4 hours with 240 bolt charging.

You must drive a lot. 120V has been good enough for us for the last two years. DW commutes about 40 mi/day in a Leaf.

Looking back 2 yrs. to the announcements of car makers spending billions. I guess Tesla made a real deal building a plant in 168 days and only $5 billion from which they are delivering cars already.

I'll need to do some research to see what can actually be purchased here in North America

I have seen a lot of Model 3s on the road and tractor trailers full heading to their distribution point in Toronto

Nissan Leaf is also one I've seen around. and a Hyundai Kona a friend has purchased although quite rare.

Mr. Musk is talking about roadrunner batteries, 4 main model assembly lines, plus the next cybertruck assembly location. That's a lotta land to build on.

You know what would be super cool? Tesla's truck stop of the future, Texas style. Bigger, better, badder.
