I was wondering what anyone might think about the idea of having Tesla and Bloom Energy teaming up to place a Bloom box in the Tesla for Charging.
Here is my angle...
I am a single male, with a professional career. I am not yet looking to buy a house until about 5 years down the road. MEANING, If I buy a Model S, finding a place to charge it may be a problem. I prefer the city life at the moment anyhow. So parking is limited and even then, there are no outlets hanging around the parking lot.
So I was wondering the thoughts of Tesla motors designing a version of the Model S that incorporates the Bloom Box Fuel Cell (also based in CA).
This would be ENORMOUS!! It would have HUGE market potential. The fuel cell would charge the batteries on the Tesla with no pollution. Then it could help both the economy and the existing gasoline infrastructure by making everyone convert to ethanol or hydrogen...even Natural Gas.
This way the Telsa can still stay Green and All electric powered. But for those of us who are willing to buy a Model S and merely live in a town home with no garage we are out of luck with out such an option.
What do you think?
