Yes I think Tesla's are worth $90,000. First of all they run on electricity. They are the worlds safest car. Each car before they bring them out to the market the do testes on them to make sure that they are safe for people to use. So every car has to go trough a flip test and they flip the car over. The Tesla did not flip and they tried everything they could to try to get it to flip but they couldn't. Tesla's also have a lot of cool features. You can set the time you want your Tesla's to charge. Since energy is cheapest during the middle of the nigh you can set your car to charge at that time. Tesla's can go about 350 miles without charging. Tesla's are also ECO FRIENDLY. I could say a lot more about Tesla's but here is a little of my knowledge.

Tesla cars are not worth near $90,000. If you want to be "eco friendly" would you want to pay $90,000 just to help the environment. That is years of work on an average paying job just to be able to afford one of these cars. Apart from that, electric cars are usually worse for the environment then gas powered cars. However, hybrids take advantage of the pros of electric and gasoline engines. Electric cars can can accelerate efficiently, but are bad at maintaining highway speeds. Gasoline engine are extremely efficient on highways but terrible starting and stopping again. Also, electricity is NOT eco friendly. The majority of all electricity prdocued is from coal and oil power plants. It is less efficient to burn oil, store the energy, then put it in the car, then burning oil in the car directly. The proper ecro friendly way of running a car is on a hydrogen fuel cell, the most efficient way of storing energy for later use. While their saftey is a main concern when buying a car, many other cars have saftey features that prevent crashes. Tesla is trying to sell a consumer grade car at luxary prices. The benefits provided by the car in no way justify the price of $90,000.
