Hooniverse Wonders: Is Tesla Model S “The Everything Car?”

The Hooniverse asks, “Is the Tesla Model S the everything car“? Well….we tend to believe it is.

We have reported multiple times that the Model S is a highly capable everyday vehicle that’s road trip ready.

CEO of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, has stated that in order for the Model S to excel as an EV, it has to succeed as a vehicle first.

The video above supports the idea that the Model S is an all-around car, but we noticed that this Model S is a few months old & that it is not a top-of-the-line P85D.

We actually like to see reviews of the other versions of the Model S because most P85D reviews focus on only its speed.

Check out the video above to see what The Hooniverse thinks of the Model S.

A pretty sparse but ok review. I found his comments on the super charger network, which he neglected to mention is free, were somewhat inaccurate, or at least ironic, as he complains about their availability and the in the very next scene he is charging up, for free, at a Tesla store super charger.
Seats 7? Well 5 adults and 2 kids.

It would be nice for SOMEONE to look a little deeper into “every day utility and user friendliness” as opposed to stopping the review after a few 0-60 runs. Many things can go fast but that does not always make something you can live with day in /day out

Agree on that. Actually a lot of people are looking for a vehicle that would have standard performance instead of super performance, standard finish instead of luxury finish, standard equipment instead of super equipment but that would have standard price instead of super price.
Kind of ev Corolla actually that would keep the big battery and the supercharger but leave the rest on the bank account.

How can “Hooniverse” not mention the lack of a pull ebrake handle for ebrake induced slides?

How can a car you can’t ebrake hoon be Hooniverse’s “everything car”? That’s like saying your wife makes the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the world, but doesn’t use any peanut butter.

*grin*

Pretty silly question. One car does not fit all, not even the best car in the world. If any one car did, there would be only one category of car, rather than coupes, convertibles, SUVs, pickups, minivans, microcars, sports cars, compacts, luxury sedans, station wagons… etc. etc.

I once saw somebody claim that with all the different variations in makes, models, trim levels, colors, options, etc, that there are more ways for individual cars to be built than there are people on earth.

In other words, if every possible combination of choices were built, there would be enough unique vehicles for every single person on the earth to have a unique car that nobody else has.

People like to have choices, that’s for sure.

The biggest challenge for EV’s and PHEV’s is to reproduce that same wide variety of choices, but with electric drivetrains.

It is pretty much an all-around all-purpose car; I’ve used it for massive cargo hauling, for transporting five people, for bumper-to-bumper city traffic, for open-road driving in the countryside, it’s great for everything.

Only one thing: it’s too damn big. It’s a pain in the neck to park in small parking spaces. So hopefully Model 3 will be smaller than a Hummer (Model S is longer and wider).
