Not bad. He seems to be confused about the Tesla brakes though.
He seemed like someone not used to how they work and comparing them to standard brakes. I'm guessing that the BMW brakes are the very best there are for a traditional automobile. The Tesla, like everything else about the car's drivetrain, works in a completely different way from "standard."
Yes, the reviewer really did not understand the Model S "deceleration system" at all.Actually the thing is that the brakes on a Model S are exactly standard friction brakes. No regen on the brake pedal at all.
I was amazed at how expensive a BMW 5 series could be at the top end!
And I laughed when he said that the Model S could be configured with a long list of options. I think he mentally flipped the BMW and the Tesla options list. The Model S has the shortest option list of any vehicle in its class.
Is it just the (incorrect) perception than ICE vehicles can be refueled instantly, at all times, no matter where you are or what you are doing, so their range doesn't matter? Or is it something more?
I'm interested in the psychology that goes into this double standard.
