Thoughts about Tesla vehicles?

Anybody own a Tesla vehicle? I just started working for Tesla and was wondering if people see them around in their area. I myself living right down the road from the plant see them everywhere.

Would you consider buying an S, 3, or X? I understand their expensive but maybe this company is pushing the all electric vehicle forward.

Both Tesla and Ally-bert thought about magnetism.

Why? WHY DOES IT ACT LIKE IT DO?....

Here's on idea that is far from production-ready, but illustrates that people are making progress on the issues.


Not as simple as they make it out to be.

I was thinking of trading my car in a couple of months ago for a new Tesla. I took a test drive and was really impressed. I then rented one for a day and drove it up to Orange County from San Diego. Here are some things I did not like about it.

1. When I put it in autopilot the Tesla would nag me about not keeping both hands on the steering wheel. I like to use just one hand Damn It! It would also keep dropping out a autopilot for some reason.

2. The range of the car is based on if you drive the car at around 60 mph. If you drive at 70 or 75 the range of the car is reduced by about 20%.

3. I found a recharge station (not a Tesla station) and charged the Tesla for about 2 hours and it only added about 20 miles to the range (cost $2). You can use a Tesla recharge station that can fully recharge the car in 20 minutes but there are not the many around.

4. I did like the adaptive cruise control but there are a lot of cars that have that now.

5. I thought the Model 3 was to small and the Model S is just to expensive.

I wouldn't get the Model 3 if you are a big dude. They seem to be quite small. The Model S in contrast is such a huge car, it's a tad to big IMO. Barely fits in my garage or parking spaces.
The autopilot would freak me out.

I fully support the attempt to make E-vehicles and hybrids more mainstream.

In case anyone cares, the $45k version of the Model 3 is now available. No sign of the $35k version yet.

Here's a pretty good, in-depth article about it.

That is a good article, Mr. DaFace. (Slow reader, here.) Thanks. (Answers my question without raising additional issues such as aids or ebola.)

I thought it was interesting to learn about the amount of Earth destroying emissions generated when actually manufacturing automobiles. (Seems like a lot, to me.) Now I find myself concerned about the total environmental impact of trains.
