First Tesla Sedan Test Drive

With Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, at the wheel.


The handling is unlike anything I have felt, given the low center of gravity (batteries and motor are below the wheel line).

I took video of the whole ride; will post that and better photos when I can, which won't be soon as I just arrived in San Diego.


Update: Here's the video and commentary
