Robert Llewellyn, maker of the Fully Charged series, recently got his Tesla Model S.

Robert had been driving a Nissan LEAF for a couple of years.

You know what that means right?  A lot of new Fully Charged episodes on the Tesla Model S are coming soon.

“The day I was handed the keys to a Tesla Model S 85.

What is it like to take possession of this iconic vehicle?

Watch a grown man behave like a child.”

And to go into maximum geek mode, watch episodes of “Red Dwarf” on your wireless device while riding in the back seat of a Tesla Model S driven by Robert Llewellyn. 😀

How much of a discount did he get?

If you say free, I am ready to end it now…

Watch the video — he leased it for 3 years.

@ Discount I hope . , For all The Promo he’s Doing For Tesla….I pretty Sure That Robert Does Not Work For Free….

He’s pretty even in his EV coverage. Watch the rest of his videos and you’ll see him review everything from the i-MiEV to the LEAF (the latter has a LOT more screen time than the Tesla).

Free i-miev as a trial – Check
Nissan leaf, probably at a discount – Check
Low cost lease for a Tesla – Check

This mans as bad as big oil!

I’m just kidding, I suspect the Robert would be quite open if he was asked where he gets his money from, I also suspect if he had got a low cost deal on the Tesla he would have mentioned it in the show. One of the things that I like about fully charged is that Robert is quite open when he is going to be biased – just look at the golf GTE episode or if people give him free stuff.

He plugged for the leasing company so clearly he got a discount.

Frig, frig. Why can’t I do stuff like that…

Tesla doesn’t give a discount to anyone. JB Straubel and Elon himself probably paid full price for theirs. However, Elon gets to drive test vehicles whenever he wants, I’m sure

Well even Tesla employees don’t get discounts.

You’ seem to be blinded to the better things in life by your own irrational hatred, Scott.

Do a little research (without blinkers) and you might realise how silly and unnecessary your comment is.


Cool. 🙂 Interesting he got it after the Ecotricity conflict was resolved. 😉

New toys to play with in your second childhood!

Best Car In The World To Play With In your 2nd ChildHood…No Bad…l o l

I am pretty sure, I will behave the same when I will get mine in 3 month.
Difference between boys and men is price of there toys

Congrats, Robert. It couldn’t have gone to a better EV advocate.

Cool Nice Story, makes a good Narrator Robert!
Look forward to more new on life with 4 wheeled Gavin 🙂

I’ll be interested in reading about how driving the huge Model S on narrow U.K. lanes and parking in tight parking spaces is compared with his Leaf. Also, Robert might be more sensitive to the Model S’s electricity consumption, even while parked, than a typical Model S owner, so I wonder whether he’ll comment on that. I’d also be interested in whether he compared leasing an 85 with a 70D.

RHD with single motor. Wondering if the drivetrain will hold up?

…why wouldn’t it?

I think he’s referring to some early problems with some 2012’s. But since I seriously doubt he’s leasing a 2012, yea, he wouldn’t have to worry about problems solved long ago.

Sort of like wondering if a 2012 Roadster buyer will have problems with their 2-speed transmission, even though they solved that problem four years earlier…..
