This week I persuaded my old friend from Germany, Dirk Carstens, to give me the run-down on the pros and cons of owning a Tesla. He’s a trained physicist so there’s not much about the EV technology that phases him.
Some of the stuff we discussed:
- the low bills
- the all-important battery, how to treat it, how long it lasts, how much it’s worth
- the amount of data Tesla accumulates on you, your car, your driving…
- when autonomous driving goes wrong
- hydrogen fuel (not for the Tesla…)
