The final cut of the 9th episode of the Tesla Motors Club Podcast, featuring Chad Schwitters, the former president of Plug In America, is now available. You can watch it now on YouTube or listen to it on all major podcast networks.
I kinda pull it towards myself and rest my right knee against the center console with my right foot resting on the outside of the forefoot, near the brake pedal so in case I need to override (looking at you, stopped-untracked!) vehicles I can do so quickly. Makes it sound awkward but it's really quite comfortable.
I was wondering if anyone else had this same issue. I take it you noticed how the floor slopes down rather abruptly to be lower beneath the pedals?
In my current non-Tesla car, I put my foot flat on the floor just to the rear of the accelerator pedal -- exactly where that slope is in the Model 3. But that spot doesn't work in the Model 3 due to that slope.
Yeah, in the Prius I can put my foot flat on the floor, but there doesn't seem to be a comfortable way to do that in the Model 3. Holding body parts in awkward positions can become painful. I wonder how this is going to be in a long trip. In every other respect my Model 3 is much more comfortable to drive than my Prius. It's as though they didn't think of this when they designed the car.
