    Not sure if this topic has been brought up. Just wonder if there is any electric or magnetic radiation issue inside the cabin given model s' massive battery array and electric motor between the rear wheels. Any insights or comments will be appreciated! May be I am overlooking this issue but curious to know if there is any known complain or issues!

    Unfortunately both links have a great deal of fluff and little of substance. Certainly nothing terribly scientific; no input from a professional EMI organisation, for example. However, I am sure that in the ludicrously litigious US this issue will have been covered adequately by Tesla engineers, so I wouldn't worry.

    The frequencies of the electromagnetic fields inside the motor and the battery are very low. At those frequencies power generated by electromagnetic fields is very low. So this is not an issue at all.

    I would like to add that at those frequencies the electromagnetic fields generated by the motor and the battery don't even manage to propagate and so such electromagnetic fields stay close to the motor and the battery without even entering in the cabin.

    Thanks a lot for all the feebacks. Having perused the links and threads on this onsite, it seems to me that EMF is not an issue! Really glad to hear this!
