    Cue the trite "Model S is not a Large Luxury car" tripe from the ICE lemmings.

    I was thinking BMW must be pretty happy until I got down to the 6 series.........did the 7 series get a refresh at all?

    The old phrase, "The footsteps are getting louder!" comes to mind. :p

    More than a refresh, an all new 7 Series.

    Cue the trite "Model S is not a Large Luxury car" tripe from Tesla!

    After all they always tried to convey that the Model S is simply a "premium electric sedan". ;)

    Over here in Germany it was never seen as anything else but a large luxury car by the way. I remember when I stressed that here on the forum several times there was usually a backlash from fanboys reminding me that the Model S is "not a luxury car". How things can change... :p

    Nothing has changed.

    Tesla has not insisted its not a luxury car that is some owners/fans.

    Those that insist Tesla is not a luxury car but a "premium high performance economy car" still do.

    I think that is silly and always have.

    When you have the best you don't need to bang people over the head with the word "luxury" ad infinitum.


    If you charge a luxury level price consumers will compare and contrast with luxury cars in its price class.

    Doesn't mean Tesla should ditch its minimalist interiors for Parisian Cathouse Interiors.

    Tesla has a different concept of luxury. Luxuriously quiet without isolation, fueling overnight at home while you sleep, OTA updates without having to schedule a visit to a dealer etc.

    No denying any of that at all. My comment was intended to be humorous, as I found the post by jimmyjohn ironic itself.
    Then again, we Germans are well known around the world for not having a great sense of humour ;)
