Wow, I like the waterfall around the car at the auto show; it looks very "epic". Electric cars are cool but I hope that many of these new EV's will have more mileage or a wider range that can be traveled before they can be refueled. Also, not everyone can have a charging station installed because many people live in apartments or high rises and we gotta park on the street.
