They appear to be oriented for left hand use.
Curious. Something to get used to.
I'm leftanded and use my right hand to open my drivers door. Strange that I'll have to get used to using my dominant hand.
err - rotate your hand 180, now your thumb is on the other side, problem solved
Not on the other side of the car.
Many cars have/had push button door openers. What did y'all do then? Serious question. It's exactly the same movement. I would use the 'appropriate' hand for opening each door, no matter which 'handedness' I was or whether the door had pull handles or a button or this 'push one area, and pull the pop-out lever' setup.
One of the videos mentioned that there were 2 ways to get out of the car. Has anyone figured out the 2 ways? I didn't catch the differences.
Did they mean the doors? If they mean emergency escape, I would assume the trunk through the back seats, unless they meant something else entirely (trunks have an emergency open latch inside, even with a handle visible at night). The roof doesn't open. You can be trivial and say there are two doors....
How do you define 'two ways to get out of the car?'
are you thinking of this video? they mention there is a push button near where your thumb would be when your hand is on the grab handle and then there is also a pull lever (out of view but presumably under or within the grab handle)
Edit: the Youtube time start didn't work - so fastforward to 1:40
Ah.... yes, I heard one of the bloggers mention that, also. The lit button on the grab handle and a 'more normal' handle somewhere else. But not described in detail... I assume (like the emergency handles on the Falcon Wing Doors on the X) that they are completely manually operated and the buttons are electric and could fail?
My confusion was from the phrase 'two ways to get out of the car'. My bad.... I would have said 'two ways to open the doors', sorry for the stupid answers above!
As a right-handed Australian, I applaud this.
For LHD cars, isn't it normal to use your left hand to open the driver's door? This allows you to swing the door open past your body and step into the car. If you use your right hand, the door will bump into your body and you have to do an awkward contortion to swing the door open and then reposition your body so you can step into the car.
Haha. Yeah. Sorry about not being clearer. I was just trying to state it in the same way the Tesla driver said it in the video from my memory.
Good point, at least for the front door on the driver's side.
