    Dude, just look at these faces,

    These young engineers and support staff are on an adventure, they are pumped up! This is no PR Stunt, this is tomorrows emerging leaders today making history. We don't need to armchair quarterback this thing, let these young leaders have their day in the sun/snow/sleet/rain ...

    It would be irresponsible for Musk to pull his kids out of school for a romp through winter snow storms "just because".

    It is a resume filler for engineers to volunteer (or voluntell) for a romp through winter snow storms have their names listed on a Guiness World Record. Even if the world is not watching it's still an exciting geeky project.

    @tom, wow, now I know you're not that dis-compassionate, the keyword there is "family"! Also, see Rik's post.

    Are you sure VH? The Prius plug-in just using the engine as a range extender, hybrid mode, moves the Prius to the 72MPG range. Far more than the Hybrid Accord.

    Here's CMAX vs Prius Plug-In

    @solucky, even though the Audi E-Tron Q8 is only rated at 370 miles and has a yet to be discovered battery technology, I say bring it on! The Model X, of course will beat it to market by what 2-3 years, so Teslas yet to be discovered new battery tech, may easily be 500 miles, ... I'm just saying if we're speculating you know!?

    I'm seriously glad that Audi/VW is thinking along these lines. Good for them!

    @tom ... your article does not support the idea of subsidies to Norwegians, unless you're talking the use of the bus lane, the article refers to ICE vehicles having a "super tax". Electrics vehicles don't have the additional tax, that's not exactly a subsidy.

    But you'd need way more data to suggest that all Norwegian electric vehicle owners use the bus lane.

    I don't see how the reference to the CCS or CHAdeMO helps your case? Albeit the adapter for the Model S is steep, TODAY, but that's more about supply and demand, once Europe gets to 20-40K Tesla's on the road the price will most likely go down.
    http://bit.ly/1jXd4lb

    But the possibility of Model S owners using an adapter to gain access to another network of charging stations just removes even more of the alleged and overblown "range anxiety".

    So instead of opting for a hybrid or a diesel "competitor", although even that's debatable, a potential buyer can go with the highly rated Model S and all its future cousins and now charge on any standard.

    I don't see the downside for Tesla Motors?

    @tippy, "... because the fat butt ...", actually the front end is wider than the rear end.

    And, I do the same thing, drive around for the perfect spot, and I only drive a lowly Prius!

    Yep, what Ford said, that battery meme is so annoying. OMG, it doesn't even make sense if one would use just a little rational thought! OMG ...

    @bw, I think you missed solucky's point, 20K with full-synthetics.

    The rip-off in the US applies to ICE automakers recommending cheaper oil (non-synthetic), which is a six one way 1/2 dozen another argument for ICE maintenance.

    That is, it is not brainwashing, it's a DIFFERENT oil.

    Nope San is absolutely right even for modern cars, the keyword is "recommends". You may choose otherwise but Toyota 2014 recommends 5,000 miles!

    I think what Dan is saying is that The Model S has an added value in making a long trip - no need for an oil change. That is that teslas going cross country don't have to stop for an oil change, or have one pre-trip, yet another savings driving an EV.

    Thanks GEA, it's weird that so many comments seem to dismiss the Snow. What's up with that?
