That's better than 99% of the commercials I see on TV. Great job!

cprenzl | 07. Februar 2013

Fantastic! Never seen anything better

Amazing. And kudos to Daedalus for taking up the challenge.

I actually got choked up!

A bit too heavy handed about being powered by sunlight. It isn't accurate yet or ever. Other than that, very nice commercial.

nickjhowe | 07. Februar 2013

Ever? When the SuperCharger network is built out it will generate more electricity from sunlight than will be delivered into cars, so "powered by sunlight" will be true, for some users. Good enough for me.

teslaver | 07. Februar 2013

speechless....!
I wish someone could organize a fundraiser for all tesla lovers and put this ad on national television...ofcourse with appropriate approval of TM. This is the least we could do to thank Tesla & the admaker for all the efforts.
Then again, it may not be needed if we all just pledge to share it with all we know and hopefully make it one of the most viewed video on youtube with more hits than Gangnam style.. what say?

This is a commercial I wouldn't mind seeing on TV sometime :)

Most I generically hate :D

travis.johnson | 07. Februar 2013

Yes. Yes! Yes!! Loved it!

Beautiful beautiful beautiful.

+1 kyleket.

Nicely done!

sayidreddy | 08. Februar 2013

Wow, if Tesla ever starts to produce tv comemrcials, I hope they are as inspiring as this one.

dtaubert | 08. Februar 2013

Love it!

Great commercial, powered by sunlight works for me. My house has 41 panels (10 kw) and i will be adding an additional 12 panels (3 kw) in the next few months. With the solar paneled super charging stations, energy is clean and solar based.

Bump! Everyone needs to watch

GallonsOfLight | 10. Februar 2013

Please tweet, Facebook, whatever... We're at 30,000 views and want to keep the momentum!

Anyone know any celebs or twitterers with lots of followers that would be willing to help get the word out?

prash.saka | 17. März 2013

The next videos could be:

- a shot of the Tesla's sunroof and solar panels on a home roof, with a caption that says A sunroof that actually works with the Sun

- starry night, the back seats folded down, open sunroof, two kids lying down in the Tesla, looking up through the open sunroof, pointing to the stars, and a caption saying, Go ahead, reach for the stars.

- full moon night, in the open fields, open frunk, a record player in the frunk, a couple enjoying a romantic dinner, and a caption that says Who needs candle-light dinners when you can have moon-light dinners..

What do you think?

Brian H | 17. März 2013

I remember record players. Someone stole my turntable, though.
