Tony Williams says:

does the home outlets post  comes with the car?

Another Cuber says:

Does it work when the roads are flooded?

APprojection says:

Is it safe to have the battery right at the bottom? I mean is it shielded? Because running on some rough object might pierce through it.

TraverseRun says:

You find it hard to believe that they beat bmw and mercedes on drag coefficient? These guys send rockets into space. They’re a pretty smart group of people.

john ermoso says:

You are by far the best reviewer I’ve seen sir! I hope you can make a review about the model 3 asap.

Aefwa Efwe says:

I don’t have much faith in this guy’s ability to review cars. He kept comparing it to BMW and Mercedes but this car outclasses those over hyped manufacturers by a longshot both in technology and design.

I’m sorry you don’t know how to use sat nav but don’t give the car negative marks for it. You can’t unhinge the screen from facing north because a very large rotating screen would be distracting to the driver.

Icybubba says:

Welp time to get my learner’s permit…….But my goodness is that a beautiful car

Ryen Refalo says:

Hope you don’t forget who the real Tesla is!

SaketG says:

What happens if the touch screen gets damaged by kids hitting it? Can the car work without it?

Prajwal Patil says:

Best Review

highbury10 says:

My suspicion is that if the computer that controls everything is faulty, it will cost you a fortune to fix it or replace it. How long can one drive when the car is fully charged?

Arther Fuller says:

I would invest in this if they could only improve the battery life and shorten the charge time

James Sunderland says:

Kids in Africa could have eaten that old man.

Daman Malone says:

I really love the look of the Tesla however I don’t enjoy watching this reviewer so I think more research for me

Thurston Pilgrim says:

Lol if someone hacks the center console os wirelessly and send a signal to open the sunroof while its raining.

Anderson Martins says:

i love tesla model

Jokasjervi says:

please use kilometers :C

Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez' says:

I want one so bad :(( im only 14 so im planning on becoming rich lol. Im never going to buy a car which runs on fuel, I am just not going to do that. I will only buy a electric car.

farhan orakzai says:

Did he say his name is Chubba Cheddar?

SaketG says:

Is it ironic that this video has “no mature content” written in the description?

The My fescue can says:

Piece of crap

ceczis says:

two thirds of early model s drivetrains may fail…so much for “fewer moving parts means better quality”

krower11 says:

So sweet…you guys in the us can’t test this car how it s needed to be tested 😀

We in Germany can test the performance of this car in the full spectrum;)

Dovahkiin says:

This is awesome.

Rafael Ferreira says:

You’re only 5’11”? lol

Dave Riley says:

Dear Csaba, What did you say? When you step on the what? Step on the gas?

hiccup45 says:

I aint sitting on a 1300 pound battery and neither is my family. No engine up front, good luck in a head on collision. That thing will crumple up like a beer can. Keep trying hosebags, this aint worth a crap to me.

IkaroszHUN says:

Jól beszél angolul 🙂

CarNut .kiwi says:

Soubhagya Singh says:

Tesla Can put another coupling Dc Generator to generate electric when Tesla is running & it’s give more KM Range.Tesla can Improve his roof by putting solar panel to charge the car in running condition also.If all Test Done it’s Range may increase.

Peter reteP says:

Bender Bending Rodriguez says:
