    The myteslaroadster site says "no expiration date", but then when you click the link through to the driveclean.ca.gov site it says: "These stickers will be valid until January 1, 2011 at which time this access program expires. "

    I prefer Regenerative Braking myself...

    How about a Brake Pedal instead of a break peddle???

    Seems like they didn't proofread it yet...

    Aside from that little nitpicking, I think it is awesome the amount of info they are finally providing! No nonsense, straightforward, useful information.

    Thank you TEG for pointing those out.

    I was thinking she might be filling in where Martin left off but it does not have as much personality as much as a bit of a home spun feel. That might put off those who consider the car to be luxury, but it will be good to inform those who don't care about such things.


    Looks like the fixes are already made.

    I think it's nice. Assuming the editing gets done, it'll be a good resource for people. Much of what is out there is either too dense and insider/enthusiast feeling (say here for instance) for a new, casual interest (they'll work up to it though :) ), or just feels too lean on details and marketing oriented (the corporate site). There is plenty of info there, if you dive through the blogs, etc., but it's not gathered well into one concise block like it is on the new site. It'll serve as a useful additional resource.

    I think it's fantastic that an employee took the time and effort to put together all of that information and promote the company. I assume that was something she did on her own (probably with TM's consent, but still). To have that kind of enthusiasm in your workforce is a great testament to TM.

    It was good that all of the type-o's were pointed out -- not to embarass her, but to make sure that visitors to the site weren't put off by the grammatical/spelling mistakes. If this is representing TM, even in an unofficial capacity, it shouldn't have those kinds of errors. For her to be effective at her job, she certainly doesn't need to be a grammarian, so no big deal once the mistakes were corrected.

    At first I thought she was in the trunk in that photo. Made me wonder how she fit!

    Was there that day. Was the day of the SoCal rally. They had a car up on the lift with the ESS/PEM/motor (all, I think) out of it, and were taking turns standing under/through the car, taking pictures as if they were in the trunk. There was joking about how roomy the trunk was :)

    Good to see some acceleration numbers for the different charging modes.

    Any chance of adding top speed figures as well?
