How well could a large electric BMW SUV compete with the Tesla Model X?

Nope, Tesla is in a class of their own...a class that even BMW can't compete in. Tesla really has no competition, except the Chinese who recently copied a model S.

What's the most equitable way to tax vehicle fuels--and how do you extend that to electricity for battery charging?

Annual safety inspections coupled with a mileage check (only VIN and mileage retained in database, no personal information). Annual registration proportional to the mass of the vehicle and miles driven.

How outlandish is the claim that Tesla could lead the way toward eliminating fossil fuels for vehicles?

What does this analysis tell you about Tesla's prospects of becoming a volume car maker?

Tesla will begin to crack the mass market when the Model 3 enters production. Starting at $35k before government incentives, it will likely have a total cost of ownership comparable to a mid-range Ford Fusion or Toyota Camry. At that point, I think Tesla is really going to become a major player in the auto industry globally.

Long-term, I don't think there's really any doubt that BEV's are the future of the auto industry - as battery production scales up, costs will fall, and range will continue to improve. Moreover, even the most efficient IC engine theoretically possible doesn't even come close to matching the efficiency of the all-electric powertrains currently on the market; IC engines' obsolescence is merely a matter of time.

Seems kinda stupid for electric cars, to make noise, to reduce accidents with the average pedestrian. There are deaf people that have had to learn to pay attention near streets to avoid cars since they can not hear them. With that said, I'm sure blind people depend on engine noise as a cue that there is traffic present. There might be some benefit to this.

2005 Toyota Matrix. Hopefully a few more years once I get the clutch replaced and perhaps even the A/C fixed.
