I read that "Survey data collected by Plug-In America from current early-model Tesla Model S owners has predicted that up to two-thirds of early model electric-drive units may fail by 60,000 miles. If their predictions are even remotely accurate, that’s bad news."
First, what is the electric drive unit? I think it is the motor, inverter, and gearbox.
What is an "early model" as stated above?
My car is a P85D built in December of 2014 - is it an early model?
After 50K miles, owner is responsible for this large replacement cost of what - $15K? Or, does the 8-year unlimited mile warranty kick in here?
