    Another great show.

    So Voltgate is overblown. But I think the difference between the Volt and the plug-in Prius are looking smaller and smaller.

    I was a bit amused to hear you talk about the future of Tesla being as a technology provider and then talk about Solectria (not Solectrica as you said) as a has-been company. Actually Solectria is still alive here in Massachusetts supplying technology rather than cars. Solectria split in to two companies a few years ago 1) Azure Dynamics and 2) Solectria Solar. Azure Dynamics still works on electric vehicle projects (OK so perhaps small insignificant projects. And Solectria Solar sells inverters for PV solar. In fact, the Azure dynamics EV drive inverter and the Solectria residential inverter are the same inside. I have one of these solar PV inverters in my basement.

    Hope you survived your Tesla test-drive. You will need a grin-ectomy on Monday.
