Many people have asked me why I bought my Tesla Model S 100D. Disclaimer: I don't work for Tesla or own stock. I just like their products. All Electric. My Tesla vehicle is all electric and zero emissions. Never again will I buy gasoline for my car. (I will still buy gas for my lawnmower and chainsaw.) When I charge the Tesla at home, the cost of electricity to drive 100 miles is about one tenth the cost of gasoline to go the same distance. On long trips, my cost of supercharging is free for life. Only Vehicle. This is the first electric vehicle that is practical for me to use as my only car. (My Leaf EV could only be used for errands.) My Tesla gets 350 miles of range per charge, and an extensive network of Tesla-only supercharging stations can add 170 miles of range in 20 minutes or 300 miles in 40 minutes. And the superchargers always have nearby restrooms and restaurants. I can drive my Tesla across the country or up to Oregon to witness the eclipse. Future Proof. Tesla vehicles are an evergreen platform and receive regular software updates. In the month I have owned my Model S, there have already been two such software updates. Each update makes improvements and adds new features. The current enhanced autopilot is already a godsend on long freeway drives. In less than a year, I expect full self-driving capability, where I can enter a destination and go to sleep. All Tesla vehicles manufactured today include the hardware needed for full self-driving. There are eight high-resolution digital cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors, forward scanning radar, and a supercomputer for image processing and intelligent driving. High Safety. The Tesla is one of the safest cars I can buy today. With no internal combustion engine, low center of gravity, and dual electric drive, the Model S handles and corners beautifully. It knows the current speed limit, and I even set mine to chime if I go 12 MPH over the limit. The car will automatically brake to prevent me from rear-ending someone because I am texting or being otherwise inattentive. Using autopilot to change lanes assures I will not cut somebody off in my blind spot. The Model S's front, rear, and side collision damage statistics are impressive. Low Maintenence. With no internal combustion engine, the main wear items are the tires and the brake pads. Even the brake pads last longer because of regenerative braking.
