    Just some nice shots of the Model S driving around in the UK, narrated by some guy with rad 90's-ish neon shoes.

    I thought this was a pretty good video, nothing new in particular, but the visuals are great.

    Found one small quirk: He mentions or (wrongly) assumes that the real-time traffic data is used to calculate the driving time.

    LuckyLuke,

    It is a shame the time calculation is not based on live traffic data but it is very tricky to tell and I don't blame the reviewer. On the following page Tesla mentions live traffic as one of the features of navigation:

    Model S Features | Tesla Motors

    Also the Google maps he is looking at that moment has Google's colour codes for live traffic.

    3m 48s, when Google maps is shown with live traffic colour codes:

    I found a recent discussion topic about this.
    Live Traffic info not integrated to GPS/Google Maps?
