Door Handle Video

Door Handle Video

A short video of the door handle demo. I noticed that the Tesla employees were saying all it takes is a light tap for the handles to come out, but it took just a bit more force. Not a lot, just don't expect the tap required to touch a touchscreen device to open them :)

Thx, another reason for tech package so it's automatic.

Thanks. Not getting the Tech package (primarily because I'm not too keen on xenon headlights). I can deal with pushing the door handle. Now I have to actually turn a key to open the door of my 1998 Honda Civic so this is a step up for me!

The HID lights are not like the after-market ones that glare at people. I've had them on the Prius since Oct 2003, more than half of my driving is done at night, and I have yet to be blinked at (136,000 miles +). On the other hand they have saved me a couple of times from running over road debris. Yes, I'd rather have LED, but HID is a reasonable alternative.

Yeah, I can't go without xenon anymore after having it on dark roads. Audi R8 has full LED now which is pretty nice.

I think the tech package is actually a pretty good deal considering all these items I would use almost everyday: automatic keyless entry, homelink, xenon, Power rear liftgate, Electrochromatic side mirrors, hd backup cam. Voice nav is great with free updates as well and the display on the dash is a nice touch.

It's more like a convenience package!
