Eh, if you go at it with that mindset, then anything above a Honda Acura "does not make any sense". It isn't about just getting from A to B or we'd all do with much simpler. There are features of the Tesla that add a convenience factor, and sometimes even a status, that people enjoy. For us, never having to go to a gas station again has been really really great. We rarely go over 250 miles in a day (actually, probably once in 5 years), and a year in we've yet to charge during the day -- just plug in at night at home and wake up fully juiced. Imagine waking up every morning to a full tank of gas...just feels good.
