Fantastic and Usable Electric Vehicles
My Tesla Roadster just turned two years old, and I would like to share my experience. The roadster is a race car and a fantastic commute vehicle to take one or two persons around a large metropol. With a range need up to 200 km there are no worries, if the range need is higher, you just need not to race every Porsche you meet. I have used the car during the winter with winter tires, and it works beautifully. I believe range degrades up to 10%, but the range comes back next spring. The traction control is amazing in snowy and wet winter environments ... actually the roadster seems more stable than e.g.. my BMWs, which is impressive considering the torch. There is really only about one weak point, that is the heating system capacity during the winter. I need to wear boots not to get cold feet. If the upcoming S model will be of similar fabric and DNA then it will be awesome. Wrt. trust in this review ... I must admit that I am also a shareholder in Tesla these days as I bought some shares recently after driving the roadster for 1.5 years.
