    Never driven anything that doesn't run on diesel (Besides my mopeds, my ATV and MXs) and never anything that doesn't have a turbocharger in it (Besides what I mentioned before). The first car I ever drove had a 1.8L I4 TDI. The second had a 2.5L I5 TDI. The third diesel vehicle I've ever driven has a turbocharged Volvo D13 I6 in it. 440hp and around 2 000Nm of torque. The 4th Diesel driven vehicle I've ever driven had a 500hp Scania DC16 V8 and that was just put in 6th high and release the clutch, no throttle needed, and it would just happily trott along.

    Nice gripe about the cup holders. It's the FIRST thing I found irritating about my 2011 Honda Insight EX (with Navi). Sure an 8 oz. coffee fits. But a travel mug? it just jams against the dashboard. Plus my right cup holder is occupied by a phone holder securing my Koonlung K1S DVR recorder. And leaves little room for a coffee of any size.

    Other than the cup holders... a great view of what to expect should I ever own my dream vehicle. I totally didn't expect the amount of room under the rear behind the 3rd row seats. Nor the generous space of the frunk. I'm a little alarmed at the force of the front doors closing automatically, but it sounds like the force I'd normally use to close my driver door.

    Even though it's not your vehicle, thank yo so much for sharing!

    I looked it up in Australia and there is only one official charging station in my state. Unofficial charigng stations are so far apart that you can't even drive outside of the state without going through 1000km+ stretches which is beyond the range of the tesla car.
