Tesla's expertise is not in the batteries, but in battery management technology. I fully expect the batteries in these cars to last good and long and retain their charged capacity for many years. Also, if Moore's law holds true, in five years the batteries will hold four times the power and cost 25% of what they do now.

If we as a nation and as a society can keep momentum behind these technology advances, we have a very prosperous future without sending so much money outside of our borders.
