Did you miss the part about ONE HERTZ clock rate, 16-bit architecture, and some instructions requiring several clocks? 64 byte data cache, with misses costing 5 cycles (seconds)? Instruction cache, page swaps = 10 cycle (seconds) stall. Up to 4KiB program memory. Where's the ROFL emoji?
Patience young grasshopper.

Reminds me of something I heard around 1980 or so. It involved plugging bare wires into an outlet and inviting your victim to play a fun new game called "Shaking Hands with Jesus."

Mercedes claims to have an electric car with a range of 648 miles on a single charge.

Note that this is a "concept" car.
I wonder if they meant 648 kilometers?
An error I saw in the article says that 10kwh costs about 12 dollars in the U.S.

That sounds off by 10x to me. Around 1.20 dollars seems more reasonable.

In California it's $0.30 per kwh (and going up). Plus you have to add in the amortized $2,500 cost to install a charging station in your garage.

If you watch the official video linked to in the article, this will be a production vehicle.

No, 1000+ km in the video

The video says that they will be getting single digit kwH/100 km So the $12 charge would be for the whole charge.

Snazzy concept car usually turns into underwhelming production car. Because things like cost and manufacturability nerfs these things.

Wisconsin per kwhr residential is ~$0.12/kwhr which works out to about a $1/watt-year, handy for deciding how many watts of GIMPS load to run. Sales taxes outside the heating season, plus monthly connect cost year-round are additional. Rooftop solar may mitigate costs.

I installed a 30-amp 240V charger (commonly referred to as level 2, at 6.6kW) for $800 including electrician costs. The charger hardware is under $500. While there are surely older homes that require more extensive wiring than I did, $2500 would be a pretty rare situation.

Homeowners facing 30 cents a kwh ought to look long and hard at solar-panel installation.

My electrical panel has no open slots for new breakers. It would require a sub-panel, thus more $$$.
