Consumption figures are wrong in the article - that states:

The UK brochure originally read this, which concurs on the extended range but not the standard range:

... but it now reads somewhat lower:

Generally otherwise the comments are much as expected.

The comment " There are a few little niggles, though, such as the centrally mounted glovebox, which is fairly small and a bit inaccessible... "

It's not big but it's a sensible shape and it's very accessible!

We obviously haven't been able to test the air vents yet but they feel reasonable.

We don't yet know whether access will be granted to the Tesla supercharging network but some of them have now been opened up to other cars.
