Tesla Model S

Tesla Model S red

5 Pros

  1. The Tesla S is completely electric. That is it’s not powered by oil. There is a good chance that this car represents the end of petrol cars in the same way that petrol cars represented the end of horses. Alternatively, it could represent the end of petrol cars in the same way that new coke represented the end of old coke. No matter what the outcome, it is spectacular and genuinely has every chance of being a game changer
  2. The Tesla’s batteries can be charged overnight at home like your mobile phone or in thirty minutes at a charging station on the road – so it’s almost practical
  3. Fast – in a straight line it will beat most Aston Martin’s
  4. It looks good
  5. The interior has a huge iPod like screen which controls most of the cars features. In the Tesla it looks a bit odd – but this technology will soon make most car interiors look like old televisions

5 Cons

  1. Unproven technology with no infrastructure – it’s a bit like buying an ark before the flood – you would want to be right
  2. It’s going to be really really embarrassing when you run out of batteries
  3. The Tesla is big and makes almost no noise – not very friendly to blind pedestrians
  4. Reliability remains a huge question mark
  5. Its probably going to be monumentally expensive – the Tesla Roadster already on sale costs over A$200k

Concluding personality type: The first astronaut to walk on Mars: Inspiring pioneer heading into the unknown – but its probably not going to happen any time soon without government support
