Why did you choose this car?
Long-range, impressive performance, plus of course the discount from corporation tax!

 

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • Driving – it’s incredibly easy to drive, silent, faster than almost anything else on the road. Leaves anyone with a car over 4s 0-60 in the dust!
  • Design – minimalist simplicity, everything is automated
  • Cheap and green – about 1/3 of the cost of my previous car, with more savings to come as I now have solar and a battery fitted. Over 7 tonnes of CO2 footprint removed.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • Childishness – I have fart mode and Santa mode, but I don’t have waypoints on the sat nav?
  • Boot – I prefer hatchbacks or estates but the Model S and X were too big for the roads where I live
  • Sensitivity of the safety systems – it often warns me of collisions when cars/vans are in other lanes on bends.

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
You can easily camp in it with the aircon on – yes, it works!

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
Another Tesla but not for a few years.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Tesla Charger – it’s fine for me but not special. Most people will want one that attracts the grant. Make sure it’s got a tethered cable!

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Currently in the process of moving to Tesla Energy Plan as I have a Powerwall etc. This gives 12p import and export at any time of day.

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Tesla – highly recommended, reliable and good availability. Some very busy routes can have queues at peak times but there is usually an alternative charger. Because of range, rarely charge on a motorway unless we’re stopping to eat.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Direct Line – no comments as I’ve not had much to do with them yet, they were just the lowest quote.
