Ok - as far as I've found, no one really got injured or killed here - if anyone did, ofcourse it's not fun at all..
The accident happened in Denmark by the way..

I REALLY don't like those "green" cars (hybrids or electric).. And here apparently, the Prius rearended the Tesla, and pushed it under the VW SUV.
They claim to buy their cars with their "minds" - but apparently they drive just like any other schmuck on the road..

Don't electric cars have 100% torque at 0 RPM? What's not to like about that?

It'd be even better if it was the V10 Bi-Turbo Diesel Toureg... It'd give off enough emissions for all three cars combined...

That's not funny in the least. I've driven the Tesla roadster and if I had the means, I would own one. The torque is like no other car you've ever encountered; Linear and seemingly endless.

Eh you should see what happens to big SUVs and trucks here every day. They look much worse after rolling over 5 times.

Yea, that Tesla in such a state makes me cry on the inside. That is a car I would own in an instant if I could.

If the motor isn't spinning, how does it generate torque?

Yes, an electric motor does not produce torque based on RPM, but on the power you put into it.

There is nothing wrong with electric motors, its the batteries that suck.

I guess I'm a dinosaur, but the lack of engine noise is ghey..

I'll probably get used to it in the end (when all we get are plug-in-hybrids, with 1.2l diesel engines..) But that'll sure take all the fun out of driving..
