At JET Charge, we try our best to present a balanced opinion (despite our fanaticism) of the Model S in the Australian context. Australia, in my ways, is a unique country with consumer choices that are different to other markets.
This morning we received feedback on one of our blog posts comparing the Model S 60 to other choices in the market (here). Specifically, we were told that our blog post did not give prospective buyers a positive view on the Model S.
We were a little shocked, as anyone on the TMC Forums would know how absolutely in love we are with the Model S. But I think we’ve picked out the section that has caused a little confusion:
I should have added the following:
- Many of these issues can be solved via future Software Updates, which, uniquely to Tesla, can be done over the air in your own home.
- The Tesla Model S is still the safest car ever built according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US.
- The Model S’ high definition backup camera, which can be turned on all the time, plays a big role in helping to alleviate many of the concerns above.
However, we are not the first lovers of the Model S to point out these flaws. Many owners, far more evangelical than us, have pointed these out. Our hope is that Tesla will continue to make the Model S even better than it is today.
But in any case, if there is any doubt on our position, we think the Model S is the best car on the market right now. If it were up to us, everyone would have one.
I’ll leave you with another quote from our previous blog post:
