Took a week off to relax in Hawaii and I couldn't help notice how may Leafs I saw there! There were a few Volts, but the Leafs seem very popular there. Also saw a lot of houses with solar and even complete developments built with solar. Even a few beach resorts had charging stations. This all got me thinking, a model S could go anywhere in Hawaii on a single charge! Is tesla going to explore Hawaii? I think they would make a killing there!
Also in the main states, I would think if more new houses came with solar built in, what would stop you from buying an electric car at that point? You'd already have the 'fuel' you need all the time, you just need the car to use it! Solar City needs to (if they haven't already) buddy up with some housing builder and have the houses come standard with the solar panels. That would be the nudge some people might need to consider an electric car.
