I'm eager to be an early adopter of a practical electric car - I think that's what we'll all be driving in around 10-15 years time. I've test driven them in the past but haven't found anything yet that I want to invest in. My experience yesterday made me wonder whether we are on the cusp of a break through.
The Model S has everything you'd expect of an 'executive' type car. As something of a geek I loved the huge 'glass cockpit' display on the centre console and the 'touch screen' approach. When you got behind the wheel there you realised you were driving something that could easily compete with established marques like Mercedes, Jaguar and BMW. Steve explained that this particular model had a range in excess of 250 miles - and could readily be re-charged in an evening.

The particular car we were driving was a left hand drive Dutch registered model. If you want one to drive here they are making right hand drive models.
As you could well imagine I encouraged Steve to open a Tesla dealership in Frodsham!
