The Tesla gives around 5 hours of range per hour of charging in a standard 120VAC outlet, so if your car is parked 12 hours overnight, your one-way commute has to be less than 30 miles.

5 miles of range per hour of charging, presumably?

Who said 120v? Plug it into a dryer outlet. My point was that you don't need all this big excessive expensive charging circuitry.

You have weekends to catch up as well, where depending on life style, might keep the car parked in garage for longer period.
