So, Daniel bought a new car. It's a Tesla which is an all electric car with a 300 or so mile range. Google built him a docking station so he can charge it at work.
It's a really beautiful car.
The top is all glass with a sunroof. And when the car turns off, the door handles retract which gives it a very sleek look.
Here's where the engine would be if it weren't electric. The one bit of maintenance the car requires, other than tires, is the windshield wiper fluid. You can see the blue cap in this photo.
The feature the children most love? You guessed it, the rear facing jump seats. This is a car that seats 7 comfortably and still goes 0 - 60 in 5 seconds.
This car is a marvel of engineering and aesthetics. There are lots of interesting things about driving an all electric car, but I'll save you the many accolades. suffice to say, Daniel is very satisfied.
