hold mode - One pedal driving - Just like a LEAF
hill hold - H with Circle shows up
Auto high beam
Mobile phone as key or credit card sized rfid
motorised charge flap
a light in the boot - don't think this was present in model S
folding mirrors as standard
vent mode
speed offset
Onboard Cameras Used as dashcams
Sentry mode with HAL 9000 image.
Rear view mirror doesn’t squash other cars into model Ses

Bug report - just say “bug report” and the bug when using voice recognition.


Negatives
Vampire drain
No grab handles
Piano black surface for centre console
Can’t set cruise control to Car speed in one step if speed is slower or faster than speed limit in car’s database; need to use scroll wheel to set the speed
Trunk/boot release gets dirty/gritty

Hi Joseph

Do you have an estimate of range on the freeway PERTH climate (for comparison with their NEDC estimate)?

Thanks

If anything it would be better - warm climates make for lower impedance cells.

CNBC’s Jim Cramer did a big number on fossil fuels last night -“I’m over fossil fuels, they are tobacco “.
This is a big deal because CNBC is about as amoral as any investment channel can get when it comes to making a buck.
Joe Kernen’s response would have been interesting.

Doesn’t anyone know what the dimensions of the hidden sections under the boot cover are L/W/D ?.
I’m wondering if the mini BBQ will fit in there.

Hi Nagaman
Dimensions of the Model 3 hidden sections under the boot cover are L/W/D = 67 x 47* x 31 cm
*Measured in middle at widest section ie for oval mini BBQ max diameter

Thanks for that Peter.

On another matter, I’m not too keen on sun glare from the piano black central console and wondering if matching wood trim would work in keeping with the Swedish theme.
It must be something nobody wants because I can’t find much choice in that.

Can someone confirm that the SR+ does not have fog lights.
Apart from a cornering function that my Citroen had, I’ve never actually needed them because super dense fog doesn’t seem to be around much these days.

Nope, the SR+ in Australia does not have fog lights. There were some in the very early deliveries (Aug/Sep 2019) that had them.
