Tesla's electric Model S combines unprecedented driving range and quick charging times. Thanks to the many different plug adapters, you have flexibility over how quickly the Model S can charge. Standard Level 1 charging at home can take up to 12 hours, while a special 240v plug can return up to 30 miles per hour of charging, eliminating the need to install a costly Level 2 home charging unit. With advanced technology comes issues, however. Cars.com Reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder takes a look at some of the grievances that bothered him like the unique door handles, obnoxious seat-bottom weight sensors and charging port door.
2012 Tesla Model S
The Tesla Model S is an all-new, all-electric family car available to the
mainstream market. With a starting price just over $57,000, the Model S
brings attractive styling, impressive driving dynamics and up to 300 miles
of pure electric driving. Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder takes a look
at the outrageously quick Model S and explains some of the high-tech quirks
and why he thinks key improvements need to be made to make this a true
American family car.
2013 Mitsubishi Lancer GT
Aimed at younger buyers, the Mitsubishi Lancer GT offers features like a
premium aftermarket stereo, leather seats and aggressive styling matched by
sporty driving dynamics. Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek says the Lancer GT's
subpar fuel economy and hard ride quality may sway buyers toward more
updated, fuel-efficient competitors in the compact sedan class.

Tesla Model S Delivery
Probably a bit boring but I captured the process of the car arriving and
unloading from the truck. Note that this is unusual because Tesla doesn't
have a license to sell in the state of Massachusetts yet so it has to be
purchased direct from California and shipped via third-party. It won't be
quite so nuts here once they have their license.
Electric Vehicle Hits and Misses - Autoline This Week 1647
They arrived with such fanfare a couple years back, that you'd have thought
we'd all be driving electrics by now but that's not the case. In fact, even
today some manufacturers are reticent to even offer an electric option. But
that hasn't stopped everyone from the biggest OEMs to the single car
startups from designing and building all-electric cars. On Autoline This
Week John McElroy and his panel look at the world of electric cars, if
there's a want, a need or a business case to be made for their existence.
Joining John in studio is Csaba Csere, the former Editor-in-Chief of Car &

BMW i8 - For the pseudo-environmentalist billionaire in every one of us
I was thoroughly underwhelmed by BMW's latest concept on show at the
Auckland Museum today.
It has similar hybrid technology but a lower all-electric range than a
Chevrolet Volt, yet it costs $270,000 USD more.
Or think of it as an all-electric Tesla Roadster, but with less range, less
power, less acceleration, less style, less reliability - but with higher
emissions, and at twice the price.
The styling is a personal thing, but I found it too weird to gain
mass-acceptance. Perhaps thankfully, the finished product will look
Still, God only knows what market this car is aimed at. Even so, by 2014
(when this vehicle is ready for production) the competition will have
soared ahead with more practical, long-range all-electric vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model S is a visual masterpiece with an all electric
range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) - and full-scale production starts in
You'd better think fast BMW.
