I woke up this morning to find an email from a very smart investing friend in my inbox, linking to a great video about a Tesla cold weather test, driving the Tesla Motors Model S in snow in Norway. It’s not only very illuminating in regard to the car’s performance, it’s also quite funny. (Note, unless you speak Norwegian, you’ll have to read the subtitles.)
FYI, My wife and I both drove the Model S a few weeks ago and were very impressed. One major feature not mentioned in the video is the car’s quietness. Because it’s powered by one electric motor, and that’s at the rear of the car, there is none of the NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) that we’re all so accustomed to in automobiles. It does exactly what you want at all times, quietly and smoothly and comfortably.
Folks on Wall Street are beginning to recognize that this company is changing the world, and eventually, the folks on Main Street, who have embraced the appliance-like Prius, will recognize it as well.
