    Could it have been one of the new Fusion plug-in hybrids? They run just like any other electric as long as the battery remains charged. Check out the black car halfway down on this page.

    I agree. Don't touch it.

    Are you sure it's really half an ohm?

    If it trips when first plugged in (assuming nothing runs until you flip a switch) there must be leakage somewhere.

    Are there any line-to-ground capacitors?

    I was behind yet another Tesla at a traffic light yesterday. I think it was a Model 3. It looks as though Model 3s will be a far more common sight than the Model S.
