Absolutely beautiful!!! I'm looking forward to hearing the first-hand owner insights!
The guy in my office building that drives one doesn't much care to talk cars.

Me too, our CEO has one, but casually popping into his office for a car chat on a regular basis might not be the best thing!

I figure my next car will be my last ICE car for the work commute. I typically keep a car for 10 years for work travel and should buy a new one in 2018, by 2028 I expect Electric cars to be prevalent and more in my price range. In all likelihood it may be far sooner. Any issues of range anxiety are non-existent for commuting which is really the only technical issue that would stop me having one as my main family vehicle.

I guess by 2028 we should have put some infrastructure in and hopefully solved the battery charge time issues.

First trip today outside range, deepest Welsh Wales so I used the superchargers for the first time. Brilliant, 150 miles added in 20 minutes. On the way back I stopped for lunch and got a complete fill. Arrived home and needed to put 21kw back in to top back up, so I did 330 miles for £2.10 fuel cost!

It's a pretty civilised way to travel where they put them near decent services and you take a break for a coffee. A great advertisement as well where they have them all lined up for people to look at.

RE: TESLA Stores
Yes, I think I'm right that the average service station stop in the U.K. lasts 28', which gives time for a very significant 'fill'.
I'll buy it off you in a couple of years, Peter!

Mostly Audi drivers gawping as they go past. Quite interesting to watch.

RE: TESLA Stores
Curious to see inside the station, I hear they are well-appointed and the coffee isn't bad. Will need your insight.

RE: TESLA Stores
It's just a a British Motorway service station. They are normally to be avoided. This one had a Starbucks, KFC, Burger King, Subway and a Harry Ramsden. All are normal rubbish but more expensive. Petrol at this places is usually 10% higher. It's a relatively new one so fine inside.

I have to admit Americans do a much better job of these kind of places.

RE: TESLA Stores
Yeah, a Sheetz highway station is good. But that's about it, really.
