A Guy who just put his deposit down on a new Tesla has a very long journey when it comes to EVs. My Dad (born in 1931) has just made the decision to buy a 70 D. I don't know if any of you remember the Briggs and Stratton EV on the cover of Motor trend in March 1980, but my father's business was responsible for the chassis and drivetrain it sat on. It was built at Marathon electric vehicles located in the outskirts of Montreal and based on the C360 model they were hoping would catch the public's attention . I think he was a bit before his time on this. Anyway, I think this new Tesla will be the most exciting car he has ever owned and driven. ( I did like the Volvo P1800 as the first car I can remember in 1963) Before the deal is completed, just wondering how you would option yours? Are there some options that are no brainers and better values? Some you would pass on? The car will be parked outdoors unfortunately, so any tips on charging and living outdoors would be appreciated. (don't stand in puddles when you unplug?) I have encouraged him to join the forum, so hopefully he wanders by. Tia.
