sounds amazing... very jet engine like.
few questions.... how did it drive, how long did you drive it, and how quickly did it go flat...

I only got to ride shot gun.
We did a couple of laps around the area as it was peak hour (one of 24 LA has a day).
It will do 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds with a top spead of 125mph.
The charge is good for around 250 miles and cost $4.00 for a complete charge.


and yes it did sound like a jet engine. :D

Yeah they are, but more from a point it's better to be seen in a Telsa than your V12 Ferrari.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Damon, David Letterman and another half a dozen names the salesperson said. There was another guy looking to trade his Elise in whilst I was there, turns out ha is a Grammy award winning musician but I can't remember his name.

Very cool.  The whole electric thing is going to be very exciting - and the salvation of the car industry.

Yep.  Top Gear told me, so it must be true.
