He went on to put one major worry people have about electric cars to rest: “So, I was joking with someone that even if there’s the zombie apocalypse, which is a popular theme these days, even if there’s a zombie apocalypse, you’ll still be able to travel throughout the country using the Tesla supercharging system.”
