I was a petrol head, and this is the Game changer
This car makes every other car I've driven, seem prehistoric. It's literally like driving something from the future. Despite mine being the 'Slower' Standard Range Plus model, it leaves everything standing still at the lights (should you enjoy being so juvenile!) 0-60 in 5 seconds, no noise, no engine/gearbox or servicing, and it costs me just £1 in electricity to do 100 miles using my home charger (Octopus Energy's 5p per kWh EV tariff) Autopilot is incredible on main roads/Motorways - it steers/sticks to speed limits/keeps distance itself/avoids accidents - It's bonkers good, and constantly getting better due to 'over the air updates'. I can get 200+ miles real range when driving normally from a 100% charge, but with the Tesla Supercharging Network all around the UK, it's so easy to pull over and top up if needs be. Typically, a 20 minute charge will take you from 10% - 80% charge, and again, the speed of this is improving all the time with Tesla leading the way with their Superchargers. It's so easy. I love the interior. It is spacious thanks partly to a full glass roof, and minimalist cockpit. The massive centre screen is intuitive, very responsive and not in the least bit as distracting as other cars with loads of buttons everywhere. Because everything is automatic (Lights, even full beam, wipers etc) the screen is basically just a big map and you don't need to touch it when you are driving, and once you have set everything up. Oh, and it creates no pollution so it doesn't poison people as they walk by, let alone my children, Wife and me! Makes sense don't you think? I'm looking forward to getting Solar and Powerwall for our house some day, so we can run it on sunshine - but until then, it runs on 100% renewable energy from Octopus Energy anyway! I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about this car, or Tesla for that matter. They are single handedly responsible for the whole Auto industry finally making the switch to Electric Cars, something which could and should have happened decades ago. I cannot recommend this car highly enough... it's easily the most fun car I've ever driven and the financial and environmental savings are huge. As it stands, there is still no close competition when weighing up the statistics & data of a Tesla.
