I'm sure once they cover the expenses of their "Gigafactory", prices will drop. I'm sure that building was crazy expensive to make, but, powering all of the manufacturing robots and charging up the batteries there all through solar power will likely pay for itself in a matter of years. If they had to outsource their electricity, I'm sure their electric bill would be absurdly high, and they'd likely have all of the EV-haters come out and say how hypocritical they are for depending on fossil fuels. I was thinking the exact same thing. But from what I heard, the only common complaint people have about them are build quality issues. Nobody seems to complain about how they perform, handle, or feel (probably because the novelty of silent and instant torque is too distracting).
