I had the opportunity to test drive a Model S in Chicago recently. Absolutely blown away by the experience!
As I am 6'9" (I am evenly proportioned, not all torso or all legs) it was a bit of a squeeze, but doable. (Heck I can drive my MIL's 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer with some in car gymnastics :D ) Biggest issue for me is that while I may be able to fit, whomever will be sitting behind me is squished (lack of space between my seatback and the front of the passenger seat.)
This raises the question: Given the cavernous amount of room in our current daily driver (2007 Honda Odyssey), will Model X have similar massive amounts of interior room? Will I be able to fit in the drivers seat? Will the person behind me be able to sit comfortably?
Looking at this vehicle as a Daily Driver for the family commutes to work and school. We do 30K miles a year, (~80 miles per day) just in town commuting (mostly highway). With a 10 year old at 5ft tall and a 4ft7in 7 year old, I need a vehicle we can 'grow' into.
Thanks in advance!
