Not much in the way of mainstream electric cars for 100 years is a while.
It can be difficult to know what to think of the Tesla Model S. There is an enormous amount of hype out there surrounding the car, but then much of the criticism is simply pushback against the hype and not a genuine appraisal either. So sometimes it's good to get a sober and consumer-oriented review of the car, one which doesn't seem to simply be agenda. Whether or not this review qualifies is up to you, but XCar does good work in general, something to keep in mind while watching.
The review is very much focused on customers in the UK, but most of it will be fairly universal.
