My Wife And I Both Love The Car — Takes a while to learn all the capabilities. The car is continually improved via software downloads. The buying experience and driving experience is outstanding. Brakes should last 300,000 miles due to regenerative braking. The fuel cost (electricity) is about 25% of the gasoline cost to drive the same number of miles.

Pros: Tons of tech with 17 inch screen

Cons: Costs a few bucks

Impressive looking. Nice braking that hardly needed any effort from me. It had a fat steering wheel to grip. Awesome display. About 265 miles of range.

I test drove both and the Tesla was overall the better choice for me. Quieter drive train, quicker off the line and can pre heat or cool the interior without running a gas engine all from my phone remotely.

2014 Tesla Model S Review
says:
It is a great large executive family sedan with better cargo capacity and seating capacity than any of its competitors. It offers a large array of features and options. It handles very well and has a smooth and quiet ride. It has instant power delivery as it has an electric motor. It has 265 miles of range and I drive long trips using the free supercharger network. I drive a lot so I save a lot of money on gas. My perspective of electric cars has changed greatly since I've purchased this vehicle. It's the best car I've ever owned and i greatly recommend it.

Future Is Here With Tesla S By jim_pieri

I must admit I'm smitten with the Tesla S P85. Found I wasn't driving my other cars. Ended up selling my Porsche 4GTS, my BMW Alpina B-7 and my RangeRover. They just are old school. Handling and perf... Read More
