Tesla test drives in Brisbane, my impressions

Post by EmpowerRepower » Mon, 21 Mar 2016, 19:26

After seeing a number of Teslas, meeting some owners, and sitting inside the cars, and as an EV advocate, I finally got the chance to drive one.

My impressions are here, and I'd recommend the experience of a test drive.Image

A fun read. Thanks.
You wrote "a huge back boot and medium frunk". Surely, in Australia, that would be "a huge back boot and medium froot"? Image

I'm impressed. With BMW test drives you only get a cup of coffee. With Tesla you apparently get froot.

Great review!

A minor correction - your article says: “ludicrous” mode (going from 0 – 60kph in 2.8 seconds)
The P90D Ludicrous actually does 0-60mph (96.5kph) in 2.8 seconds which is faster than any other production 4 door vehicle.

Thank you, you're correct. No wonder it felt so incredibly fast. Image
