5 Questions Your Friends Will Ask About Your Tesla
Posted on October 12, 2015
When you own a stylish and eco-friendly Tesla, you’re bound to get asked a lot of questions. Here’s the top five questions you’ll get asked as the owner of a new Tesla.
Don’t you get Range Anxiety?
Nope. Tesla engineers have ensured that no Tesla driver experiences range anxiety by powering their Model S’ and Model X’ with a battery capable of between 200 and 265 miles, as opposed to the average 90 mile range of many other electric vehicles (EVs).
Not only does the Tesla have great range, but as an owner you have access to thousands of Supercharge stations across the nation. Allowing a Tesla to be charged to 80-percent capacity in around 30 minutes.
We know the Tesla is fast, but how fast?
While software limits the Tesla to a top speed of 130 mph, the Tesla Model S and Model X have some serious drive unit (motor) power.
When Insane Mode is initiated on P85D variants of the Tesla Model S, the full 691-HP from the vehicle’s two electric motors is put to the tires, propelling someone from zero to 60 in three seconds.
Obviously, Tesla thought that was too slow and decided to introduce a new mode called “Ludicrous Speed Mode” (a tip of the hat to Mel Brooks’ popular cult classic, “Spaceballs”), bumping the acceleration to 2.8.
That’s territory of the venerable Lamborghini Aventador (2.8 seconds) and the Bugatti Veyron (2.7 seconds) without the millions of dollars spent to obtain either of those.
Why not buy a gas-powered luxury car?
A Tesla battery can “fill-up” for pennies on the dollar for what gas costs. For example, a gas vehicle may use $2,500 in gas a year (assuming around $2.80 for premium gas and around 15,000 miles a year, as estimated by the Federal Highway Administration), whereas a Tesla would cost around $700 in energy to charge the battery.
And, lastly: Instant. Torque. There’s nothing quite like the acceleration of electric motors. Imagine, no waiting for the power-band to kick in and it doesn’t destroy the environment every time the driver puts pedal-to-the-metal.
I really like this interior? Is it stock?
Nope! This is the genuine Italian-leather and carbon fiber interior created by the design team at T Sportline, the World’s First Tesla Tuner!
