My parents have a steep driveway that goes down from the street. If you head down and there are any cars in the driveway you can not turn around and are forced to back out when you leave.
I have tried backing out in many different ICE’s over the years and it is never pretty. The back of the car is sticking up so looking out the rear window and mirrors all you see is sky. Even with the typical rear camera you cannot see where you are going. If it is dark forget it. When you try to back up the car revs and lurches as the front wheels load up with the weight of the car.
In the Model S it is easy. The huge screen clearly shows where you are going even when it is dark. And, of course, the car smoothly powers up the hill with no drama. No lurching, slamming on the brakes to avoid rolling back, etc. Just nice and smooth. Amazing.
Happy Holidays all...
