    I know this has been done many times before, but I made my own one sheet to hand out and would like everyone's opinion on it. Here it is:

    Very nice design! Minor typo: "High Powerd".

    I would lose the "imagined" Model 3 image, it looks like a shortened Model S and the 3 is very likely to look quite different from the S.

    Editorial:

    world's not worlds - should be possessive form

    30 minutes not 30 miniutes

    it's 5 minutes not its 5 minutes (it's is the contraction for it is. its is the possessive).

    Possibly misleading:

    Price of vehicle is base; however acceleration and range shown are for higher-end versions of the vehicle (base roadster 3.9 seconds, base Model S 240 miles and 5-ish seconds).

    I had the same thought as Doug - the price and the performance don't match up. I'd say "starts at" or something like that or have the range of price from lowest to highest and then show the range of performance numbers (e.g. 3.2 sec - 5.6 sec depending on model).

    Also, the supercharging time is misleading. You state 30 minutes for a full charge which is not the case. You might want to instead show the time it takes to charge 150 miles of range for each of the options which will make the supercharger look better. If not, you're going to have to realistically put about 75 minutes for a full charge at a supercharger. Also, a 110V outlet does not take 24 hours - it's more like 72 hours for a full charge.

    The rendering of the model 3 shows a coupe and I'm pretty sure it won't be a coupe, but that's just conjecture.

    I believe the correct acronym is NEMA. Not NIMA.

    The 110v household outlet would only get you about 75 miles in 24 hours... not a full standard charge.

    Yes I feel you are being overly optimistic which does as much harm as good. The charging times need to be doubled, you give the speeds for the performance versions but the cost for the base versions.

    Thanks guys! Here's an updated version with all the corrections.

    Doug & pgiralt - In one of the versions I had "Starts at" but it just didn't look right so I took it out. That and I honestly don't know how much a maxed out Roaster would of set you back when it was in production. So I figure ehh... but I see your point so I put a range for the Model S. Do you know how much the max out version of the Roadster cost?

    pgiralt - I was trying to get technical in the wording. I said "full standard charge" instead of "full charge" so that I could quote the charge times for an 80% charge instead of a 100% charge. But it was kind of confusing so I removed the word "full" and added a word graphic to emphasize that these are the charge times for a standard charge and not a max charge.

    ecarfan & pgiralt - I know it's not likely that the Model 3 will look like that. But I had to put something there and I like how that one looks :D

    An additional edit: "than" not "then" in the gigafactory last sentence.

    Nice work!

    Wouldn't you want the EPA range? I've had my car 2 years (to the day!) and I've never gone more than 248 miles in a single trip.
    Do people regularly push it near 300? I realize it is theoretically possible to go beyond 300 miles but practically...?

    And remember the Model III will "look like no other car"...

    Nothing about the safety or capacity of the car (people/storage)? 17" touchscreen?

    Thanks rsquared99 - I made the change

    EdA - I've achieved better then the ideal range a few times. It takes some hypermiling skills but not much. If it was extremely difficult to hit the ideal range I would of used the rated range. I think hitting the ideal range is more annoying than anything else. Its hard to hypermile when its so much more fun to gun it! lol... I might swap out the Model 3 part of the sheet for something about the technology and autopilot. There's just so much to say about the car I can't fit it all in lol.

    Looks great.

    Charging
    "......if you've used 30
    miles of range, than on an RV outlet
    you'll only to charge for 30 (should be 60 minutes, unless you use a combiner box)
    minutes...."

    Non-native here, but I think there is a typo in the Model III part. It says "It will be 20% smaller then the Model S...", but I believe it should say "It will be 20% smaller than the Model S..."

    Nice flyer btw

    Auf Wiedersehen!

    The Gigafactory will be producing gigawatt-hours of storage.

    Good effort!...may I suggest that you reference all of your prices in USD?...I think that will prevent confusion when those of us from outside the U.S. look at your document...

    Very nice.

    A couple of minor points:


    1. In the description of where Tesla cars are built, the apostrophe in the word "Tesla's" incorrectly makes it possessive. It should be plural, not possessive, e.g. "Teslas" or "Tesla cars".
    2. Within the text concerning charging on Superchargers, there is a missing apostrophe in "its". The usage should be "it's", because that is the correct contraction for "it is".


    Ain't English grand?
