Byebye LEAF, hellooo Model S! :)

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

After nearly 3,5 years of¬†‘electrifying your car‘, that game is changing, BIG time: byebye Nissan LEAF, hellooo Tesla Model S!! Woohoo! ūüôā

My LEAF experience has been amazing, it is a¬†fantastic drive with really only one downside; the range. The¬†advertised¬†175km seems reacheable only¬†on a warm summer day while driving a¬†whopping¬†20km/h ūüôā , the actual range is more like 125-140km in summertime and about 80-100km in wintertime (both heavily depending on the use of the climate control)…not enough for me.

The Tesla Model S is really a¬†BIG step up, a game changer in the car industry (car 2.0), a change of the concept of owning/driving a car! Besides the looks (great design), many¬†elements in the car are¬†software based which makes it possibly (&easy) to¬†upgrade the car with¬†a software¬†update;¬†a nice example is the recent update giving the owners¬†more horsepower to play with (!)…it is¬†like owning a whole new car overnight! ūüôā

The first kilometers¬†have¬†been truly amazing and something tells me that this car will¬†not stop to¬†amaze me…so, to be continued! ūüôā
