Hi all. I'm new to this forum so this may be a topic already covered and if so, I apologize.
It's a given, as far as I'm concerned, that these Tesla automobiles are far ahead of the electric car game. However, I have a small point to make in regard to charging one of these awesome machines; with such advanced electronic and mechanical technology displayed here, why is there not an on-board charging system applied to these vehicles? Could the existing grill area not have a working purpose such as an air dam to supply a concentrated flow of air for a fan that would turn a shaft in a ratio reduced gear box that would in turn, spin a generator that produces regulated voltage to charge the batteries and keep them charged. The mileage of the vehicle would be unlimited. Is this too simple?
