2019 Tesla Model S - Review & Road Test

  • Published on Mar 21, 2019
  • Lest you think we've forgotten about Tesla's Model S in all the 3, X and Y hullabaloo, you'd be mistaken. Here it is, the 2019 Tesla Model S. And how could we forget with Ludicrous mode and that insane dual-motor power. There's so much more to talk about, too, so that's why Micah Muzio is here. Also, he impresses some friends with launches.

    I'm considering this or a BMW M5 (2.8 sec 0-60, closest gas competitor), shopped multiple insurance companies and on average the Model S was $100/month more to insure than an M5. Worth considering, factor that in when you make a decision to buy or pass.

    The Tesla Model S had a 110 - 150 less horsepower and lost by .6 of a second and 3 mph by the BMW 8 Series. Pretty darn good for a car that cost 40% as much and is close.

    They didnt rename the P100D to P110D just for fun. The 100 in P100D stands for the kWh of the batteries. Your says 100 because it has 100 Kwh the 110 has 110 kWh. Also clearly you not only don't like technological cars but you also don't know how to use it

    Tesla's NoV actually suggests you keep the car to the right (away from the fast lane on the left, except to pass). However, it's annoying since it puts you behind slower traffic

    10:09 The Tesla was saving you a $300 fine from you trying to make an illegal move. You can't go over those double lines on the right, once you entered that section, that's when the system canceled the right lane change. This car knows better than you do. You're welcome.

    Autopilot can you or someone else killed. It cannot anticipate other driver's intentions or actions as quickly as a person and if it changes lanes to avoid another vehicle, will it cut off another car in the process making them crash? Or if another car is in the other lane, will it NOT move out of the way and allow the first car to run into you? Autopilot is never a good idea.

    I once had a 1995 Chrysler Concorde withe a 3.8L V6 and an 18 gallon gas tank that got me 400 miles per tank and that V6 was pretty damn fast.

    So many people think an electric car is cheaper but they never factor in the cost of installing an electric charger at your house, then the cost on your house electric bill to charge the car and the fact that you have to charge it almost twice as often as putting gas in a regular car. Sure it's fast when you hit the gas but is it more cost effective? And what happens when you live in area where storms tends to knock out the electric grid for a few days or a week? At least with gas cars you can stock up with gas cans.

    Right now electric cars are a gimmick. When one can be made to go 500 miles per charge and the home charger is included with the initial car cost without raising the price drastically, THEN they might be worth something. The government always bitches about emissions but today's gas cars have little to no emissions compared to cars just 20 years ago. By the way that around the turn of the 21 century.
    And what happens if you decide to sell your Tesla? Will the new owner pay to have the home charge removed from your home and installed in theirs. That's yet another cost.

    Nice video, but I think the most significant part of this review was the demonstration of autopilot. Driving in heavy traffic is a very complicated process, especially as too many drivers are aggressive, stressed out, using a phone or car touch screens, eating, distracted by the passengers or pets, or just not very courteous humans. An experienced human driver is (usually) aware of all these social factors and can take them into account when driving, especially on congested highways or even on relatively open stretches of interstate but used by many large trucks. The autopilot system from Tesla or any other auto companies is not currently able to assess the social environment factor in operating an automobile. In the future when all vehicles have to use autonomous driving, then the cars will "behave" better than the humans and there will no longer be the impact and consequences of human behavior. As seen in this video you were more confidant driving the car yourself than when the autopilot feature was active. More crashes are going to occur if people put too much trust in autopilot and are not paying attention to situations the autopilot does not comprehend. The transition from fully human control of vehicles to fully autonomous control is going to be one of the most difficult events in the history of technology development.

    “I can’t believe you are such a fan boi of the biggest rip off in motoring history! Blah blah blah”..........ok, there you go a stupid angry statement that is pure drivel. I would sell a kidney to get one of these. As a near 60 year old who still remembers driving vehicles from the early 1960’s with all their horrific problems, this Tesla S is the future of transportation that is absolutely from the future. Yes it has issues and compromises. But oh boy, are they moving at a rate of knots to a far more sensitive mode of transportation on this planet. The Tesla range of vehicles are just pure joy and zest. Thanks for this review.

    A Model 3 violently and spontaneously erupted in a massive explosion yesterday. Fortunately no one was within the 50 ft blast zone. It was caught on surveillance video in an all concrete parking garage. Any family inside, or out, would have been instantly incenerated, and a residential home would have been leveled and burned to the ground. Lithium is INSANELY dangerous and should be outlawed for use in cars.

    • Sandy
      Sandy Month ago

      No, gasoline doesn't erupt in a massive house-leveling explosion when it makes contact with a single oxygen molecule via air or water, resulting in a follow-on non-extinguishable white hot fire that kills first responders, other victims near the scene, and instantly incinerates even the bones and teeth of the EV occupants. Any deformation for any reason, of any of the 22,000± Tesla cells, absolutely guarantees the above.
      You do understand that all first responders are trained to stay far away from damaged EVs upon arrival. EV occupants die unassisted. Sadly, your extreme environmental selfishness (depriving everything green of CO2 and warmth) means the same for those you hit.

    Chevy Volt uses less gas than Tesla, Nissan Leaf or Chevy Bolt The state of California gives a larger rebate to Tesla owners than to Chevy Volt owners because the Tesla is a “Zero Emission” car. In reality the Chevy Volt is closer to zero emission than the Tesla. This may not make sense to you so please read on to see my reasoning. As an owner of three different Chevy Volts Plug in electric / gas hybrid cars since 2011, I can affirm you that my experience with those three cars and my experience with the Chevy Volt is that they use much less fossil fuel (Gas) than Tesla, Nissan leaf or Chevy Bolt. This may sound as an absurd statement but if you let me explain to you why, then it may make more sense, When a person owns an all electric car (Tesla, Leaf, Bolt) it is never a primary car. The owner must own a second car as the primary car. This is usually a regular gas car that in the long run it uses much more fossil fuel than a Chevy Volt. In other words the total fossil fuel usage for this household is much more than that for a person who owns a Chevy Volt. The Chevy Volt for this household is the primary car (no range limit) and there is no need for a second (more long distant) reliable car. Also should note the environmental impact of owning two cars over one car which would include parts that needs to be replaced and those used parts will eventually end in the dump, 4 additional rubber tires to care for, oil changes, transmission oil, brake pads, tune ups, cost for the additional insurance etc. As soon as a person purchases an all electric car he develops a (RAD) range anxiety disorder, it is a disease I invented in my head to explain to you how a new owner of an all electric car starts to thinks shortly after purchasing the car ( sort of similar to buying a Boat: as the saying goes: the two happiest days in a man’s life is the day he buys a Boat and the day he sells it). Most of the general public (even most owners of the Chevy Volt) are not aware of this “RAD”. When an owner of a Chevy Volt travels any distant he will always be going from point A to point B. When an owner of a Tesla, Leaf, Bolt travel any distance that is close to the 50% range of the car’s battery capacity or more, he or she no longer can travel from point A to point B. It will always will be point A to point C. The reason is point B will HAVE TO BE a stop to use some form of a commercial charger thus diverting from A to B path (travel distance increased so is the fossil fuel usage) and the commercial charger uses of (fossil fuel) to charge the car. Example if a Tesla owner lives in Pasadena, Ca. wants to visit relatives in San Diego, Ca.. This Tesla owner will be very apprehensive that his or her car my not make the round trip and they could get stranded somewhere in between putting their life on the line. They have to stop at some Tesla charging station in between to get the Tesla charged or the battery switched while the relative who lives in San Diego will use their gas guzzling (fossil fuel) car to pick them up at the Tesla charging station to bring them to their house and when they are done visiting, this relative will have to take them back to the charging station using the same gas guzzling car, that is four trips. When owners of an all electric car taking any extended trip they must be on their toes learning and knowing the whole network that they can use to recharge their car (Point B to point C). If those charge stations are busy charging other cars then they must wait possibly buying foods and drinks (that used fossil fuel to make, and produce more trash to fill landfills). If the car is completely discharged then they will have to stay at a hotel overnight, because those All- Electric cars can take as much as 18 hours to fully recharge. Boy think about the amount of fossil fuel used to keep a person in a hotel overnight, electricity to operate AC / Heater, watching TV, hair drying, washing sheets and towels, laundry, food and the trash generated by such a one night stay. They also will need some form of transportation from the charging station to the hotel and back (more fossil fuel). Those all electric car companies may use sells gimmicks like DC charging where you can get quick charging in a short period of time. I say nonsense, you have to find a charging station with such a DC charging capability and hopefully there is nobody else ahead of you waiting to use it. Some people might thing in the back of their head that some hotels may have a one or two charging station for customers to use, I can guarantee you that those charging station will charge you an arm & a leg (more direct and indirect fossil fuel use) before you charge your car. In other word they: CHARGE LOTS OF MONEY TO CHARGE YOUR CAR. My experience with hotels chargers is that they either don't work or you can not charge your car with them (Tesla requires a special charger). If Tesla owners think that they can knock on peoples doors and ask them if they would allow them to use their electrical outlet in their garage to charge their car while they are sitting in their car, they better think again. It is not only unpractical, not workable and damn right dangerous. In some areas around the country if you knock on peoples door to recharge your car then you could end up on some TV true crime show. When I was a child my father told me the following saying “Good health is like a crown on the heads of healthy people, only sick people can see”. Chevy Volts drivers wear a crown (No Range Anxiety Disorder) only owners of Tesla, Leaf & Bolt drivers can see this crown. The state of California calls those all electric cars as “Zero Emission” while in fact they either directly or indirectly use more gas than the Chevy Volt. The Chevy Volt should be the car that gets the White pool lane sticker and should get more state rebate than the Tesla. People who have never owned a Chevy Volt have no idea how little gas it uses. Over the past almost 8 years of using my Chevy Volts most of the times I can not even remember the last time I purchased gas. Chevy Volt is also a great maintenance free car, I can write a real long article about all the benefits of owning a Chevy Volt but not this time. I think Mr. Bob Lutz (the person who forced GM to make the Volt) against all odds i.e. “GM engineers” should receive the Nobel prize for his idea and persistence. Had GM added a gas generator in the Chevy Bolt the same size as the gas generator in the Chevy Volt then the Chevy Bolt would have become (BVOLT) and would have become the greatest selling car in the world. Unfortunately Mr. Bob Lutz no longer works for GM and GM executive are now forced to listen to “GM engineers” to make their decisions. Even if I lived in an apartment building with no electric outlets in the parking section I will still purchase a Chevy Volt to use it as a gas only car. On gas only, without ever being plugged in for charging, it gets more than 40 miles per gallon. This mileage combined with almost no maintenance and the incredible torque this car has, makes this car better than the gas cars made by Honda, Toyota, Nissan combined. The 100% electric drive makes the main function of the gas engine is to charge the battery or run the electric motor. This means this gas engine is under no stress to propel the car which make this engine run under little mechanical degradation, which means it can easily run half a million to one million miles without much of a problems. Until someone makes an All-Electric car that is powered by a super-capacitor (or other means) that can be fully charged in minutes AND those charging facilities are present at all gas stations, then All-Electric cars are not “Zero Emission” and not even close to being the lowest emission cars on the market. Super-capacitor cars I do not envision to be around anytime soon and until such a car becomes a reality then I say to the whole world that is watching : “The Emperor's New Clothes, he hasn't got anything on,". To all the auto industry CEO's with visions, missions of a “Zero Emission” cars : the jig is up because it is not in the All-Electric cars. The Volt has the lowest emission of most if not all (including All-Electric) cars and should receive the Nobel prize for being the greatest car ever built. Owner of 3 Chevy Volts for 8 years.
