I heard something about an option to pre-pay for a 60 or 85 kwh battery at over $10k in order to be able to get a replacement at 8 years.
WHY would anyone pay for the current day retail price of a battery, when come years from now todays same price will get you probably something like over 180kwh, and 800 mile range. or on the other hand the 60kwh will be going for about 1/6 of what it costs today.
Its like as if 5 years ago you bought an Iphone 3g for $500, and paid another $500 then so you could get another Iphone 3G in 2013......even though that same $500 can get you an Iphone5 today, while an iphone 3g is probably worth about $40 bucks now.
