Anybody know much about Tesla cars?
« on: September 08, 2016, 06:52:23 PM »
Anybody driven one?

How's it feel like?  Is it what it says it's up to be?  Can it do the range of an ordinary petrol car?

No, but if it drives anything like a BMW i3, then it's just like any other car. Only quieter.

Which model? None of them claims a range in line with a petrol car. But all Tesla models claim to beat the range of the BMW I drove.

Actually, it's the new 4WD I'm particularly interested in. 

Tried finding out, is it actually a separate motor controlling each wheel?

motor for each axle
260 > 360 mile range - model s - depending on conditions, speed

I wouldn't mind a Model 3 when it comes out.
