Are those things really innovations? They seem more like expensive gimmicks prone to maintenance headaches.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love a Tesla, but not for any of those "innovations".
I wish they'd sell a regular, plain-Jane electric car with standard parts. I don't need a $1000 glass cockpit that'll seem like an antique in 5 years, or electric pull-in handles that'll be impossible to find OEM parts for, or even a fancy nav system that my smartphone can just fine with. And gullwing doors? That's like the Rolex of doors, isn't it -- all form and no function? Unless I get bonus points for every cyclist I decapitate with them, where's the benefit?
I get that the Roadster was designed for the obscenely rich and the Model S was designed for the only-super rich. Hope the next model is more generic and able to compete with the Accord and Civic.
