you have more superchargers in Utah than we have in all of CanadaI first had the P85+ and now the P85D and it is a fantastic car. The performance 0-100 is stunning! fit & finish is great and the customer service is second to none... also being made in the USA is another plus. On the comments about range anxiety. I have never had a single issue and with the Tesla SuperCharge station network, you can drive coast to coast for free, for life. We have 10 Supercharger stations in UT alone.) Charging times typically are 15-30 minutes and they have a lounge with refreshments, business center and restrooms while you wait. Charging at home with just 220v takes about 3 hours.
A friend was visiting here this week and we met for lunch. He's considering the AWD Tesla (he lives in Colorado so it would serve a purposse). After reading this I was wondering if the car has conventional brakes/pads? All the function of braking can be done using the electric motors. I wrote part of the "active braking" for a hard drive in the 90'. We used back EMF to park the heads and then the rest to change motor commutation to stop the platters.What I don't hear much about are braking and cornering abilities.
