Did this video help you?

Gustav Calder: Where are innovations? Did Tesla motors invent electric motor or lithium ion battery? Who will buy a car costing 100k of dollars? Where is your revolution? It’s a toy for the rich, for a cohort of a few people. freak that car, oil is still our future. п»ї

MaZEEZaM: Im not keen on the look of the dash, for the price i would expect something classy not ugly arse carbon fibre. should be more inline with what you expect from other classy brands such as audi, jag, mercп»ї

Steven J: You get the biggest front crumple zone of any car, an armored under-body and highest safety rating ever. Even a Rolls Royce don’t offer that.п»ї

im1greatman: I hope Tesla keeps pushing battery technology to it’s limits. Imagine all the things we now use that have terrible batteries that could benefit with a newer more powerful battery technology. п»ї

Mike Hernandez: He’s flipping the camera off at 2:35! Lol!п»ї

buildmorefarms100: He didn’t mention the charging time takes many hours and if you conk out in the middle of nowhere, you have no backup gas engine to rely on. you are on your own! Range of just 265 miles. psh.п»ї

lasanog: Can’t wait for the model xп»ї

Jurgen DX: They should consider themselves lucky their test car didn’t burst into flames.п»ї

adasand21: I would rather buy a S class than a Tesla.п»ї

jo23bulls: Please aviod GM like the plague. Hook up with Apple.п»ї

Scott gregery: Typical batteries will wear out with charging and recharging. How often do these batteries need to be replaced, and how much are they? п»ї

ovisatma: can you really use that touchscreen while driving? seems alot like texting and driving:)). the purpose of knobs are easy accesibility. If I have to go through menus in order to change the temperature in the car, or change the stations or volume on the radio. I don’t know. п»ї

Jonathan.HDK.O’Toole: Range isn’t irrelevant. It is the primary issue when considering an electric car. Why didn’t you test the range? The reason other manufacturers don’t consolidate all their controls in a massive touchscreen is that you can use it safely while driving.

It’s fine while you are stopped. but not while driving. I was a big fan of Tesla and very hopeful. but the more I learn about it and see what other manufacturers are lining up, my enthusiasm is waning (surely VW has to gobble up Rimac very soon.Their tech is well ahead of Tesla but very expensive)п»ї

ARCH. M: if tesla n apple hook up OMG this car is going to be the futureп»ї

twenty514: Great reviewп»ї

cc123456789: cool, pottery road!п»ї

Michael Pardi: Amazing car. I wonder how many Leica cameras you can fit into it? AmIright?!п»ї

buildmorefarms100: This car bursts into flames if it runs over objects. and no backup gas engine. and 5-10 hours to charge. no thanksп»ї

EE DRAKEDOG: burns better than wood!п»ї

Robert111: The rims are too freaking big and will give the car a much harder ride than would otherwise be the case. The extra weight of the rims also takes away from steering performance. Rims over 18 on a car also look clownish.п»ї

tmat04: The model S and the Corvette C7 Stingray will do it for me. America, America!п»ї

Bronzebk: AutoGuide.com. Great review. Thanksп»ї

whoarocket: It’s not 5 years. The warranty on the battery covers 8 years / UNLIMITED miles. People had those same false fears about the batteries in hybrids when they first came out; I heard that all the time.

They already have a lot of data from many years of the Tesla Roadster, and their batteries (slightly older technology even) have been lasting really really well. I think one of the things people forget is that these don’t just stop working, like lead acid; they just have capacity reduced some.

lawnmowerdude: No more distracting then trying to find a small button. But when it comes down to it, It’s all about responsibility. It’s only a huge distraction if you enable it.

mrjojo273: I seen this car by my house

riseofhonor: 4:13 dat acceleration

Pun Jabi: High cost negate the efficiency? Some people make stupid comments. But you want wind generators huh? Nobody will ever recoup the cost of wind generators with money saved!

That is not the point. Stop making pointless comments!

ImHereToAnnoyYou: That brings me back to my initial comment, it’s a luxury car, if you can afford a Tesla you can probably afford two. I just worry that the high costs negate any efficiencies and it becomes a bit of a gimmick.

Lumos-Nox: I would just like the climate and the locks and sunroof not to be apart of that massive touch and it would be perfect.

The Trillion Dollar Gods: the seat are to flat in my opinion. Feel like I am sliding when driving fast.

Ollie Strickland: You do not have to worry about the mining or the energy densities of batteries. that’s my point. Those two things are predictable and will not be a problem. How would you feel about spending extra money to buy the Tesla now and then have the battery replaced for free later? — no I’d rather pay later, because then you benefit from lower productions costs later As cheap as I’d like. increase your income; produce more. ) Any car I buy must be less than 1/3 of my annual income.

Tabula Rasa: Fine, there’s videos of this car in cold weather. It’s the most popular selling car in Norway at the moment.

Tabula Rasa: That’s for the aerodynamics of the vehicle.

Kingrooney: Ok severe slant that is.

Kingrooney: Can anybody tell me what exactly he said between 4:54 to 5:00 please? Thx

Oumar DiAllO: OMG THE music at the beginning was sooooooo annoying. Great review tho

SgtBarone42: What a fabulous car and company!

ImHereToAnnoyYou: Who want’s to buy a car and have to worry about lithium mining and battery densities for 10 years? How would you feel about spending extra money to buy the Tesla now and then have the battery replaced for free later? In Europe on many new electric cars they charge a monthly battery rental, but however they cut it, it works out not being as cheap as I’d like.

toyotaprius79: Tesla didn’t allow film or videos to work on their screen since that is a distraction. Of course pictures would do just fine.

flawless: honestly the only thing that bothers me about this car is that its too luxury looking, i would be afraid to drive this is certain city areas. i mean was the door handle thing really necessary? *shrugs*

Merc Ury: thats because you are not used to it. the radio is a distraction too

Ollie Strickland: No it’s not the bright side or being optimistic. $12k is the absolute worst case. As global production of lithium ion cell scales up, efficiencies will emerge that reduce costs. Densities aren’t standing still either.

ImHereToAnnoyYou: Well, that’s looking on the bright side. I’m not so sure you’ll want to replace the battery in 10 years, given what else might be available, or that it’ll last quite that long. However the same could be said for an engine.

ImHereToAnnoyYou: Sorry I was going off a Tesla owners discussion a few months back. They weren’t too sure about future prices (given they weren’t expecting replacement anytime soon). I suppose the point is it won’t be cheap and hypothesising about how much it might cost ‘X’ years into the future is not easy.

Could it be $12k now because all the cars are new and shouldn’t need a replacement?

ScooniePenn10: exactly how well would the auto-door handles work when it’s -10 and snowing?

maccollo: How certain is this improvement each year, and does it show any signs of dropping? I mean if it does hold for 10 years we can realistically expect to see an EV with a range of more than 800km/500 miles 10 years down the line.

bebomac5: Only people who know little to nothing about this car would think that. It’s no more distracting than old school buttons and knobs, and other manufacturers sad, fails attempts at advanced interfaces in cars. The difference is that it works better.

bebomac5: Wrong! The Model S replacement battery pack is currently between $8k-$12k, depending on the pack’s max kwh’s. Also Li-ion cells fall in price an average of 7% per year, while the energy density of the cells increases more than 8% per year.

Educate yourself!

Ollie Strickland: No, it’s $12k today. And manufacturing costs will drop as production scales up. Also energy density increases by about 8% per year.

So I’m looking forward to my battery replacement options in 8-10 years.
