Tesla Model S pros and cons
Pros and Cons by Owners / Test Drives
safety (5-star EuroNCAP safety rating)
0-100 km/h in just 2.5 s
excellent driving characteristics, low centre of gravity
low operating costs (servicing and low cost per km)
low long-term consumption of 23 kWh per 100 km though I’m constantly demonstrating to people the car’s performance
OTA updates (continuous improvement of the vehicle)
highly functional Autopilot (on motorways it usually manages 99% of the journey for me)
the Michelin Pilot Sport summer tyres withstood an incredible 54,000 km
warranty on the entire drive system including battery 240,000 km/8 years
no problem driving long distances - the Supercharger network is a great bonus for every Tesla
charging by Supercharger free

total power 600 kW, torque 1,000 Nm
solid charging speed, max. 150 kW (10-90 % in 40-45 minutes)
decent range on the highway of 400 km in summer and 300 km in winter
resilience of the drive and chassis

the car is quite wide and long for the city, making parking really tight
