Tesla Model Y real world EV road trip by The Late Brake Show

I thought this was one of the best car reviews I've seen. The more I watched, the more I felt that any range anxiety I might have is misplaced if Tesla was a serious consideration for me.

Would I buy a Tesla? The build quality seems to come up every time and I fully agree with Jonny Smith that the Models 3 and Y are ugly. The headlights in particular don't work for me as part of the face. I don't mind the brutal crease at the very front but they could and should do so much better. The Model S on the other hand has evolved really nicely and would be my preferred choice but that's out of reach for me at the moment.

Other than interior space, I don't get the obsession with crossovers and SUVs. I sat in a Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé a few years ago and was shocked to find that it was just a taller C Class without any of the benefits of being a taller car. Everyone was just seated higher. The other extreme is that the cars are much wider and longer than a car ever needs to be for normal, everyday, use.

Having said that, Tesla seem to be miles ahead with their UX, their UI and integration of hardware and software.
