    I’ve never seen soo many Tesla in the one place, brilliant. Do they not have home chargers?

    Reminds me of the petrol shortages and massive queues at any garage that even had fuel.
    I’m guessing these people are charging to get home again?

    That’s California for you. I bet these are owners that purchased their Tesla back in the day when you received free lifetime charging from Superchargers.

    It is a pretty cool queue to be in.

    Could be wmc, they are fantastic cars, i suggest it would be worth the wait.

    Yes it looks like California, maybe it’s a thanksgiving Tesla owners meet? 🤔

    free or not those in the queue are in for a long wait. Can you imagine doing that in minus temperatures over here, I think I’d leave the car and get an Uber instead.

    Wow, lets go see the relatives this holiday, drive there, visit, queue for 4 hours to plug in and charge for another hour to drive home, no thanks.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Electric  cars aren’t that green either. To make the lithium batteries means oceans being dug up which is bad for the environment. Plus charging them up uses carbon footprint. The only ‘green’ thing about is the emissions.</p>

    Craig nothing is 100% perfect, that’s for sure, but surely the change to EV’s has to be better than the status quo.

    Can you imagine how gridlocked somewhere like London would be if queues like that were the norm after everyone is forced to go electric.

    We’re going to need charging stations the size of football pitches in all large cities.

    At the moment the production of electric cars and their batteries and the power supply to charge all these EV’s is not “green” in any way, I don’t feel like I’ve missed out as yet because right now none of the cars on offer are an improvement on normal fuelled vehicles(Tesla’s are the best but you have to factor in cost/availability etc) plus there is the bloody big elephant stood in the middle of the road blocking a large percentage of people from being able to actually charge one of said wee beasties so until there is a radical shift in all areas I won’t be crying into my cornflakes just yet!

    Phil big city councils will need to get their fingers out and provide kerb side chargers if this is to work.
