    Great video.

    Though I have to wonder which version of the software doesn't let you surf the web while the car is driving? My passengers do it all the time.

    Yeah, he got a few minor facts wrong, but he was very enthusiastic. Going into a Tesla Store was a good idea, that I have not seen other reviewers do. Overall a very nice video.

    Okay, someone take the key away from him. If he doesn't like the accelerator pedal more, then he shouldn't be in the Model S.

    People just can't stop saying the word dealership when a car is involved. It's like saying engine. Oh wait, he said both. :(

    In many ways it’s a really nice video. Kind of makes you wish it was Consumer Reports or Motor Trend (Oh, wait…)

    I was also kind of expecting women in bikinis (or less…). And. With that really, really, shall we say seductive look in their eyes... (Aren’t euphemisms great?(!)) Hmm… now what did I do to deserve that? Buy a magazine? Click on my magic mouse? (No really, according to Apple it really is “Magic”!)

    I’m not saying that there aren’t circles among Tesla’s target audience in Sweden – those who can afford this car – were this video probably would go over rather well (here the 85 kWh starts at about $110,500[SUP]1[/SUP]). But there’s also a rather large circle, encompassing most likely the majority, where I’m not as sure. Feminism is real in Sweden. And I think that’s a good thing…


    _________________________________
    [SUP]1[/SUP]That would be after the so called 'Allowance for Super Environmentally Friendly Car' (Supermiljöbilspremien) though, which currently is about $6,200.

    [SUP]1[/SUP](And that price doesn’t include the legally mandated winter tires this time of year…)

    Ha, that was fun to watch. I liked the coda at the gas station :)
