Elon & Tesla’s Forgotten Vehicles Lineup – Buses & Coaches

(Image from VCG/Getty Images) I’d  like to make a statement here. I like Elon Musk. And I respect him deeply (although not deep enough to be his die-hard supporter or a fan club member).

Hardly recycled anything and a lot of stuff that I bought is either a wrapped plastic-based (read:carbon) or have significant amount of plastic. My only real ‘relationship’ with something related to nature and environment is (occasionally) watching National Geographic. I never planted anything on my own and long-distance journey is my favourite pastime (In fact,…
