I knew, this kind of car exists, but I hadn't seen, touch, hear or smell it…
|Tesla Model S|
|There is no engine in front and no fuel tank rear limiting space.|
|Stylish remote control|
Tesla has key-less system, so you just open locks by remote control and door handles pop up, by remote control you can also open sunroof and many other things.
When you sit in the car and remote control is in your pocket you just push brake pedal and car is on, it's amazing because you don't hear starting motor or anything, it's just simple on.
Then you choose "gear" by selector (American way) from right side of steering wheel.
|Just R, N and D|
Performance of car is amazing! It accelerates 0-100km/h (0-60mph) little bit over 4 seconds and torsion is unbelievable! Traction control avoid tire burning during acceleration, it was wet asphalt when I was testing the car and I felt tires were slipping a bit during strong acceleration (before traction control avoid it). Just great way!!!
Driving itself is really comfortable and like by normal automatic transmission car; without motor voice, gear changing and delays in accelerations.
There is really big touch screen display in the middle panel, where you can control and follow everything.
|Display can be shared to different parts (graphics of your driving, maps, info of batteries etc...) |
...for example cameras are excellent.
Usage of car is cheap! Of course there is not fuel consumption, but also services are cheaper, there are not e.g. oil and filter changes!))) Tesla guarantee batteries with unlimited kilometers for 8 years.
In Finland government supports leased Tesla by 500€/month until 2017!!!!
Okay Tesla is a great car, but price at least in Finland is unavailable for most of us!((
Thanks for chance of test drive: Mertsi Friberg and Kiinteistömaailma Tampere and Hervanta!
