    Overall very positive and distinct from other reviews. Good concept.

    I think that as this was a series of one word adjectives the range anxiety meant non existent due to the Tesla extended range over other BEV's and it also shows the S pulling into a Supercharger, I thought it was very positive, even glowing.

    That was my impression as well. The problem with a ten word review is that it doesn't give enough enough details and it creates...

    Confusion.

    Yeah, I understood what they were trying to convey, but putting "range" and "anxiety" so close together was not well thought out for a review meant for people who don't have intimate knowledge of the Model S, such as the Superchargers. But it was a very positive, though impressionistic, review.

    Yeah, they missed "SILENT" with all that yadda-yadda choir nonsense.

    "All the expertise with less blather." And yet she blathers through the entire intro. I don't think the concept needed to be explained. Good video otherwise.

    Though, dog in the frunk?

    The reviewer, Sue Callaway, is the same reviewer in the Fisker Karma vs. Tesla Model S video.

    I thought she looked familiar after watching that video. She certainly loves the Model S. Not so much the Karma.

    Except for that range. 300 miles is just not enough for her driving style.

    Tesla should give her a two week loaner and a 14-50. That should change her mind.
