With their 400 mile-battery pack, the company is changing the value of EVs. Heck, we even have charging stations in Utah. In the next five years, driving EVs will not be so impractical, and with electricity only about 1/3 the cost of oil, you'll see people adopting them. I see them in Cache Valley already!
