As an engineering student, I recognize and share great interest in the work engineers at Tesla are currently doing to develop a product like the Model S. However, living in a urban area, and thinking of purchasing a Model S in the near future. I have a hard time finding a solution to owning a Model S in an urban area. For Tesla to expand their customer market, they must find a solution to charging your vehicle in an urban area. For example, people like me, who live in apartments will never buy a Tesla because they would not be able to charge their cars. As of 2011, about 250 million Americans live in or around urban areas. So all these people will miss out on the opportunity to own an electric car due to the restriction of them not being able to charge their cars. So, I wanted to know if Tesla has a plan in place to solve this issue for urban areas when they create a more economically affordable "model S", or if anyone has a possible solution to this problem?
