Moscow Tesla Club team have testedAmerican vs European Tesla Model S blind spots difference. That was done mainly for the russian tesla owners (we have a lot of american teslas here on the roads). But may be ineresting to someone here. Here is a short video (russian voice, english subtitles - turn them on): You may know, that US and Europe has different standards for side mirrors. In Europe you get curved mirror that gives smaller blind spot but objects appear to look smaller (like they were far away). In US you'll get more realistic image, but the blind spot is larger. It attracted our attention after one Tesla owner got in a dangerous situation on the road because of the blind spot. He has an american Tesla Model S and here in Russia we have an european mirror standart (everyone got used to it). We decided to test what is the actual difference between American and European Model S blind spots and what does it means for a driver. So, we made measurements with two cars, and got ~35% difference in a left blind spot zone size. In deed it means that in a case of american standard mirrors - there could be hidden car of tesla's size in a distance of 180 cm (6 feet) in the left blind spot zone. For the european mirrors this distance would be 350 cm (11.5 feet). Our conclusion: If you got used to european mirrors it's dangerous to drive an american tesla. PS: And that why an autopilot with a blind spot collision warning is a really good thing to have. PPS: We're going to shoot more videos of that kind. So if it's relevant, I post some of them on TMC.
