Please brag about the best feature of your car!
It's a TESLA!
It's the whole package--much more than the sum of it's awesome parts.
Reducing our foreign energy dependence (and, hopefully, the need to send future generations to war to "protect" oil interests).
Riding around with my wife and 5 kids in a beautiful, quiet, fast sedan. Unfathomable until Tesla.
The ability to put anything beside you in the rear view camera almost instantaneously.
It's kind of obvious which makes it less interesting, and some people even consider it a drawback, but I love that the center console and gauge cluster are just screens.
Hands down it's the acceleration.
As far as features, it's gotta be the door handles. How can you not love a car that greets you when you come near and says "can we go for a ride". Like an excited puppy.
The continued commitment to software upgrades and enhancements. I've never had a car that gained features before! Even if they don't keep it up forever, how could they, it's nice to know that the car will continue to grow into what they wanted it to be and not be forever stuck on what they were forced to ship by necessity.
I assume you mean other than the driver's.......
It is pretty cool that things can be updated via 3G and you don't have to be stuck with something outdated.
My primary purpose for buying the car was the reduction of my carbon footprint in exchange for carbon fiber
no gas, for all the reasons associated with that
Not transferring money to governments hostile to the United States via buying gasoline. And having a "full" car each morning without any effort.
Can't pick. I love it all!!!
My favorite part is the way people react when you take them for a ride the first time :-)
Wishing that I had spent $10,000 MORE!
When I was a kid, I owned a electric slot-car set. I always thought to myself... "Wow, if only real cars were that fast!"
I now own a REAL SLOT-CAR! :-)
Giving people the "Tesla Grin" for the first time.
I love all the tech involved, but if this car burned gas, I never would have taken a second look. Time to get out of the oil business.
I would have to say the screens; both the 17" touchscreen, and the instrument cluster screen in front of the driver. When I first walked into a Tesla store (Newport Beach), that was what kept me coming back, just to gaze at the screens!
I love the Tesla apps that come with it ! The iPhone app that lets me see where the car is and and how fast it is going , the temperature inside the car and its charge status. My wife loves the apps too. Also the the home link button knows to pop up when it is time to open the garage door. Too cool!
Never again having to stand in the freezing rain at 6am pumping gas.
I am paying for a $35,000 car with the fuel saving but driving Jauguar.
When I am driving, I AM the coolest thing in the car. At least that's how I feel. :)
Someone told me the Tesla Model S has only 14 moving parts. I don't know if that is for the drive train or includes all the various systems, but it is still such a small fraction of the thousands of moving parts in an ICE car that it still boggles my mind to think about. I think that is the coolest thing.
Parking with the press of a single button.
I LOVE having to eat my own words: "I will NEVER buy an American car!"
USA! USA! USA! ;-)
Coolest feature? Gotta be the A/C :D
Nah.. DC :-D (SC free forever, speed of charging, plans - cover, US, Europe , the world :-)
Other people drooling over it.
Wife loves it! :D
Vawlkus is "observing the obvious"; A/C cools the car down, so it must be the coolest thing, in order to share.
All of the usual stuff, speed, silence, gas free, etc - but the coolest to me is just walking away from the car without buttons, keys, gears and when I get back, the handles pop out, I get in and everything is just like I left it.
Unless I was listening to music on my iPhone - that needs to get fixed.
Lol, my latest mod to the Model S - a brand spankin' new center console insert (CCI), very cool, it's from:www.teslaccessories.com
+1 kyleket, this is my first American made car as well!
Oh come ON, that was funny dammit :P
Yes it was.
Runar's follow up was funny too.
The driver's seat.
The deafening silence
The fact that I can start to charge my car from my phone or computer. This honestly made my night.
Bumper to bumper.
