    Here I am thinking I am a well rounded human being, I'm 25 yo and this is the first time ever as I breathe on mother earth that I have heard this word – Discombobulating – I had to pause and consult google. There's a lot to learn in this world obviously. Wow!

    Whoa look at all these Americans. Being so rude and body shaming this guy. Ok he told whatever he felt about the car. You can be nice too. Really feeling bad for him.

    For the Model 3 to really work well, the supercharger network needs significant expansion. Glad to see the regen effect is helpful in real life and not just some gimmick. Range anxiety is real.

    Lmao, it took them two days to do a trip that anyone else can do in 1 day. Also, he should get out of the Tesla and onto a Bicycle 🚲

    Electric cars are a stupid idea as long as most electricity comes from burning coal.
    So until solar power or an alternative power source pops up, you can keep your 6831 18650s and shove them up your ass.
    And the car's range HAD to be effected by the 275 pounds of nuggets and coagulated honey mustard it was lugging around.
    And who's gonna buy a $70,000 car when the Hyper Loop can make that same journey in 20 minutes? Oh wait, right, that's another stupid idea. My bad.

    Have you ever heard of a car running out of petrol? What anxiety and pollution. (besides the more dirty business of manufacturing batteries and the disposal) Battery technology is way older than petrol to power things. Hybrids or other should be the future. The Tesla is a technological marvel and innovative but, old impractical power. This man is the symbol for athleticism.

    At the moment there isnt enough free charging stations. If you live work near by then an electric car is perfect. But if you wanna travel far maybe get a plug in EV like the i3 or volt.
    What tesla is doing is great once more super chargers are out its perfect but the car cost a lot. Wait 10 or 20more years and EV will be way better. As for now get a Plug in car best of both worlds.

    Can’t help but feel that this fool doesn’t know what he’s doing, and through that making the model S seem not as good.

    Disliked because you spat your gum on the ground and I believe that should be discouraged. Have a good day.

    you should have charged for even 15 minutes in Santa Barbara. Obviously going uphill and taking advantage of the acceleration is going to take away extra charge. It's not just about saving the planet, it's about your driving style. Also- did you engage the auto pilot at all on the freeway? which uses way way less energy……… but anyhow……….here is hoping your Tesla isn't just sitting in the driveway……you need to learn to drive it- it's a totally different vehicle
