  •  Mr. Musk? (0+ / 0-)

    The Canadian electric vehicle company ZENN recently announced that they would be ceasing production on their domestic fleet and would be marketing their propulsion system to other electric vehicle companies.  It's my understanding that they have developed a battery that can attain speeds of 100 km/hr with an 80-100 km range, and that they are working to make it compatible with the 'swap-out' long-range delivery systems currently being developed by other companies (swapping used batteries for fresh at service stations over long-range trips).  Is there any possibility that Tesla Motors would be partnering with or purchasing technology from other companies such as ZENN to develop an electric domestic fleet (everything from cars to long-haul shipping) and the infrastructure that would be needed to maintain it?

    (P.S. Big fan of your cars!  Your designers are sharp cookies.)
