Video: Tesla Roadster test-drive - Crave at CNET UK
New blue and orange VPs?
I was wondering about that hardtop Electric Blue car behind VP19
Is the turning radius/circle really that bad?
I don't remember it being so. (Disclaimer: my test drive was VP10 with the old drive train... it is possible things have changed). One of the things I love about my SLK is the super-tight turning radius. When I test drove the Roadster, one of the first things I did was find a big parking lot and spun it in a circle.
I remember being annoyed by the lack of power steering, so I can concede that complaint. The turning radius was not as good as the SLK, but I don't remember it as being horrible either (like the video intimates).
I would like to re-test with one of the new models.
So I had to post that having watched it with the sound off. Now I'm home I've had a chance to watch it again with sound.
I'm not sure what he is talking about. I haven't thought or seen evidence of it having a poor turning circle previously.
This review is kind of like the anti-Top Gear - starts of criticising and then finishes on a high note. I wonder if that is deliberate?
I wonder if his complaint was based on just not turning it as sharp as it could go because he did not like the lack of power steering?
Grand Visions at the Geneva Auto Show
Electric-Car Fever: Grand Visions at the Geneva Auto Show - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International
The ailing car industry is presenting the electric-powered vehicle as its great white hope at this year's Geneva Auto Show. But the electric cars are still a long way from solving the auto giants' economic problems. Toyota, a leader in the field, is taking things one step at a time...
My photos from Geneva 2009
Not just Tesla Motors, but a little bit of everything (including the Fisker Karma).
Geneva Auto Show 2009
Very nice set of pictures.
Very pleased to see the Lightning GT there too.
Are those people in the picture unwell? Why are they all staring at a red farm truck?
Some absolutely gorgeous metal (and carbon fiber!).
Tesla and the Lightening both looked rather tame next to some of these wicked designs.
The difference is that most of those other vehicles are fantasies that will never see production.
