I've been driving hybrids for years and while I like them I think electric is definitely the way to go. Tesla gives a real good option with decent range, styling and power.
Being such an innovative company, Tesla should consider making a model, or an option to allow disabled persons to drive also. I am talking about folks that can get in and out on their own, even if some adaptation is needed. The X comes to mind given that the falcon wings makes getting in and out easier than standard door wings.
How about putting a hand operated throttle/brake stick similar to a joystick in a center console? While a joystick normally controls direction as well as speed, a throttle/brake stick would allow those folks who currently use hand controls to easily transition to a Tesla. You might ask "Why not just install hand controls like on a gas vehicle?" Are you kidding? this is a TESLA! Electronic throttle/brake control should be a breeze !!
Maybe Tesla can replace those accessible vans which by the way, cost the same a s Tesla S.
Just a suggestion.
Looking forward to my test drive tomorrow.
