Tesla owner gets T-boned by drunk driver and walks away unscathed – TeslaWeekly

Reddit user, OneTrueGod, posted a photo of his recent accident and thankfully he wasn’t hurt.

A drunk driver was driving in a Chevy Tahoe and speeding in a 25mph lane when he ran a stop sign.  The SUV t-boned OneTrueGod’s Model S.

Initially the driver tried to flee the scene but he was arrested and charged with felony DUI according to the police.




OneTrueGod thanked Tesla, “Thank you Tesla for building the safest production car on the road.”  And also shared, “The Model S weighs significantly more than the average sedan, I’m pretty sure. Not saying I wouldn’t have been fine in another car, just the fact that the Model S weighs so much probably helped with not getting pushed into another car.”




My Initial Impressions on the Model 3

I took delivery of my new Model 3 about a week ago and I am thoroughly impressed.

The Model 3 is an amazing car. First, the car looks and feels like a Tesla. I’m glad that they kept many of the exterior design features of the Model S as the Model 3 looks like a slightly smaller Model S. Driving the cars feels like vintage Tesla. Instant torque, seamless acceleration, and great handling. In fact, since the Model 3 is a smaller car, it handles curves much more adeptly than its big brother the Model S. Under 60mph, the Model 3 is a much more fun and nimble car to drive. At the end of every day this past week I was left thinking, “Wow! This is a great car!”

The interior of the Model 3 is the future of Tesla interior design. I personally think they nailed the interior design and it feels great inside. The seats feel great. The simplicity in design is stunning. I was quickly able to get used to the 15” center screen and wasn’t bothered by the lack of a driver console screen. Some people online have complained about how some of the functions work on the 15” screen, but I know all of the software can and will be improved upon. What they have right now is a fantastic start and is more than capable.
