At the present time there are no Tesla Motors in Alaska. That being said, I still plan to fly to Seattle and purchase a Model S. I do have concerns as to how the Model S will perform in 20 below zero weather. I'm sure it may be a challenge. Never the less, the car has a reputation that appears to be undisputable. If it performs in the lower 48, there is no reason it should do any less here in Alaska. Granted, we may have a few month's be the stations are available, however the car can be charged anywhere and we have plenty of facilities that are equipped to handle engine warmers for overnight parking and they are free. I guess that will work for the present time. When it comes to repair's, that may be a totally other issue. We will see! With all that being said, I'll just have to wait for my order to come in to Seattle and drive back to Alaska. That in itself will be a challenge.
