Berlin - Apple Store and Tesla Store

video


Two of my favorite products are Apple Computers and Tesla Cars. To my surprise - they are next door neighbors in Berlin. They have fancy store on the main street downtown. 

Tesla S is the first "real" electric car capable of going 250 miles per charge and go really fast. How fast? A fast car - like a Corvette can do 0 to 60 in 5 seconds. The Tesla can do it in 2.9 seconds! It can do all this while being a full size family car - capable of hauling 7 people. 

The Tesla S costs around $100k. This year they are introducing an SUV - but it i expected to cost $130k. Next year - supposedly - they are introducing a compact car that will cost around $35k. That one intrigues me. At any rate - it is a different kind of company. Tesla sells cars directly from the company to the consumer - no dealers. Everything is lost price - take it or leave it. 

I have been in a Tesla S - and it is quite simply the nicest car I have seen.
