I live in north central wi and just watched the news and caught the spot with the new charging station and the one owner of a model S up here in the land of snow and ice. While I would love to have an ev none yet have the room of my Suburban or the towing ability of our HD trucks with the range we need.
I see many inefficient Z71 chevy, FX4 Ford and no matter if small or large the 9/1 ratio are 4wd trucks and large SUV's.
That is likely due to the 5 1/2 months of snow and ice and the many boats and travel trailers those owners have and use, and the security of having that large 4wd vehicle that has great crash ratings and the traction needed to go 35-45 mph in 3-6" of snow.
I hope these factors are all considered in the upcoming truck so that we in the northern half of this country can seriously consider a Tesla vehicle to lesson the carbon footprint we leave on the land.
