    yeah it's very cool but the problem with things like that is how do you get it worked on? Tesla's are hard enough but they do have a good network that's been established over the last decade, as well as those superchargers. Normal cars you can take to any repair shop and of course the dealer. getting your Tesla repaired is not as easy as fixing a standard gas car but their established network has allowed them to make it not too bad - but something like this, unless you live in the area where it's located, probably some west coast silicon valley area - if you are in farm country Midwest, where do you go for repairs. 

    yes it's cool looking, just thinking about the logistics of the early ones. Just like Rivian will have that logistics problem as well for a while
