My First View of a Tesla – Fab-u-lous !!!


On a recent charging session at the Birstall IKEA I came back to my car to find a Tesla sat next to me !. What a fabulous looking vehicle and what a proud owner. Huge boot and lots of space in the cabin. He reported a realistic mileage of 250 to the charge although it does take up to 8 hours to achieve this. I could see the ecotricity fast charger was really getting stuck into his battery pack so maybe under half an hour to get a decent DC charge. The Tesla was using the Nissan DC plug side of the charger which was interesting to see as I thought they had their own special plugs.

Reading on the blog and LinkedIn this week there’s a few comments about how EV’s are not the way forward ….meanwhile just like a bumble bee thousands of us continue to get on with our lives driving our EV’s in just about every country in the World. I do love these ‘experts’ and their wonderful insight into the transport systems. Lets see what happens when the next hike in petrol prices arrives followed by Tesla’s less expensive entry into the Worlds market place in 2015.
