I Like it but I think they could have done better with the interior though.

The interior seems alright to me, im more wowed by the fact that its completely electric but still keeps a cool factor

I watched a review of the tesla on Top Gear their verdict was that the Tesla is quite an achievement in design and technology. However, it does have some flaws that need to be ironed out.

The battery life was substantially shorter than expected for heavy usage and the two vehicles that they tested had faults. But I have to admit that it is pretty looking car.
