I think the owner owns a company where he does a *lot* of motorway travel, and apparently the Tesla does work out cheaper, although you have to factor in the charge time. He has installed a Tesla home charging station on his drive, which means if he leaves the car plugged in over night, it will be fully charged the next morning.
Hearing is unique amongst our senses since it's operational all the time and working away in the background telling us so much about our surroundings without any need for us to think about it. Those of us lucky enough to be able to hear do take it very much for granted.

I'm sure there'll sooner or later be a law which requires electric vehicles to emit a certain amount of 'noise'.

It'll be interesting to see the longevity of such vehicles in the real world and how this will impact on the longer term cost of ownership i.e. batteries, electric motors, inverters etc. Will it ever be realistic for people on low incomes to own and run electric vehicles in the same way they can cheap old cars today? If not then the move towards all electric is going to have a similar effect on society as the cost of housing has. The rich and middle classes will have their choice but the poor might well be deprived of their mobility.

Already is in the EU:
