I listen to all the nit picks and in part I would agree just because the car is pretty expensive so there should be some pretty high expectations. But, on the way home I happened to pass an i3. which I'm sure can get close to a base S in cost with the right options. Astheticaly I sort of like it in it's "different" sort of way. Any way after passing I looked in my rear view and it hit me, we have a "real" car in every sense of the word, where all these others are something less. The first thing I noticed when I looked back were the tires, they were so thin it looked like it was running on wagon wheels. The rest of the EV's aren't any different. Then you through in the Super Charger network, there's no comparison. Just my observations, the list just goes on.
