Rudy, While I am not totally into the design, I still may put a deposit on one. My wife owns a Model 3 and it is a pleasure to drive. Hope this one is the same. Craig
We get a few Teslas in,mostly for rotation and a look over. They are definitely a pleasure to drive. After spending almost 20mins driving one,coming back to the shop and seeing the loud,rough ICE engines with all their emissions controls and vaccum lines and such, really put EVs into perspective. They are definitely the future of the automobile.
I was watching the live feed but without audio due to my location at the time. When I saw the truck roll up I was expecting the body to fall off and reveal something more sexy. When I saw the glass demo applied to the vehicle I though OK, is that what armored glass looks like? I was very puzzled! After seeing the public outcry along with some explanations, I have to say that I'm impressed on…
It's ugly and stupid design, which means that it will probably sell. Some of the features are great, but over all I see a lack of practicality. I am not believing the "explanation" for why the glass shattered (Elon said that hitting the door cracked the bottom of the windows).
And I thought the Pontiac All Plastic Van was ugly.... The styling compared to their other offerings makes it look like a rush job to get it to market.
I always complain when a redesign looks similar to other manufacturers. I definitely cannot say the stole the design from somebody. It is different. That being said it does nothing for me.
Actually put in a reservation for the dual motor. Styling is growing on me and the specs and price are great for what you should get. For a fully refundable $100 I can always change my mind later. Also being in the rust belt the stainless steel is appealing. Another consideration for me is that I am getting training and updating equipment to do more hybrid and eventually EV work and I figure…
How do you think that windshield is going to work for you during a snow storm? The rake is ridiculous.
Still haven't totally made up my mind, I do have attached garage at home so shouldn't be an issue while parked overnight. Probably depending on how the windshield wipers are designed (demo truck does not have any yet) the slope may actually be easier to brush off in parking lot. No flat or only slightly sloped hood to catch all the snow brushed down off window. I would also think it would blow…
Yeah, I looked for wipers. I also thought about the steep hood slope, but the opening at the top will keep snow from sliding all the way down. Maybe it will be great, but a heated windshield means more battery consumption. I guess I will hold off buying one for now. ;-)
I wasn't saying it had one, but would need a good defroster set up for that large a windshield. Still with an estimated 300 plus mile range I wouldn't worry much about a few mile degradation from a heated windshield. The cold weather would probably be a larger factor on range at that point anyway. For my daily use I would not have any worries about range. Even my longest trips for weekend…
Well at least the Pontiac Aztec is no longer the ugliest vehicle ever built.
I actually rather liked the Aztec and wanted one when they were new LOL. Don't know what that says about my sense of style or taste LOL.
I saw an Aztec at a car show. It was the car I spent the longest looking at. I was totally in awe that someone had kept one in such great condition. The owner was the original owner and really into that car. Which I think is pretty cool.
In watching the sledgehammer demo I couldn’t help but think I wouldn’t want to have an accident or hit someone or something with it. With that stiff a skin seems not to have any give to it. But of course it will avoid all accidents :)
Hi Chad: Since you won't get one overnight, speak with your accountant to make sure that you'll be filing Schedule C this year. (I'm assuming that you haven't been.) By the time it comes out, you'll have a couple years of them under your belt. Depending on your tax bracket, you may be able to knock $16-17K off of the price of it using Section 179. (I used the 22 & 24% tax…
