Something really interesting happened last week, my first ride with my sister new car, a Tesla. I was very super impressed, just blown away!
As I love cars I thought it was a good idea to interview her about this electric car, which she’s talking about so much and i’ve heard so much about it those last months.
Because I can’t drive anymore, the only opinion I have about it was as a passenger and the feeling was really different from what i’ve ever experienced before. You have the feeling of « transportation » on the streets and highways. It has so much space for my legs, remember i’m pretty tall :-), which was really relax.
It glides so smoothly and so quietly. You have no sense of speed. But once you use the speed… oh my God! I felt like on a rollercoaster and started laughing like a kid! I understand much better her choice today 🙂
V: Why did you buy a new car? M: Because it’s full electric and has a lot of space, for all my gear.
V: Why a Tesla? M: It’s the only brand on the market with a SuperChargers network in case you are traveling through Europe or further.
V: What is the “coolest” thing about your Tesla? M: The accelaration, the updates over the air, the space inside (I have 2 trunks!) and of course my license plate that my husby offered me!
V: What is your opinion about the battery? M: In my opinion the battery is just perfect, if you leave in the morning your battery is full charged and I can drive wherever I need to, if I go on holiday and drive more than 400 km that day, I just make a short stop at a Tesla Supercharger, usually always really cool places, I drink a coffee and in 30min I have 80% again so I can drive again for more than 400 km.
V: Is there something you absolutely don’t like about the Tesla and why? M: hmmm… I need to think… Honestly the seats can be better. And I need to get used to the car because my previous one was a mini, so when I need to park, it’s quite a challenge for the moment 🙂
V: Why should someone buy a Tesla? M: because it’s the futur, it’s electric and really fast! Just test drive it and you will understand what I’m talking about. The model 3 is coming out end of this year, really curious to see that one too !
