Last Friday I drove a Tesla. I was gobsmacked.
Faster 0-100 than a Ferrari.
As comfortable as a Jaguar.
Quieter than a Mercedes.
As heavy as my Toyota Landcruiser, but handles like a BMW 5 series.
And the cost of a tank full of fuel? $5
Yes $5. Not $150-$200 like my Landcruiser.
It is powered by an electric motor, which has only one moving part, and is turbine smooth and silent.
It has a range of 400+km, and the batteries recharge overnight off the household electricity supply, or in 40 minutes at a Tesla recharge station.
The vehicle has an 8 year warranty on drive chain and batteries, and 4 years on all other mechanicals.
The style is sleek and modern, and looks a bit like an Audi A5.
My next car, whenever that is, will be electric. Peak oil? Who gives a ****
Google Tesla, to see the future of motoring.
