Would You Give Up Gas For A Tesla?

Illustration for article titled Would You Give Up Gas For A Tesla?

The Tesla Model S (regardless of how successful you think it is) is a good looking 7-seater built on some pretty impressive technology. But is it good enough for you to give up the explosive power of petrol?


Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.


Elon Musk, whatever you think of him as a person or his inventions, certainly has a vision. And his vision is a future with space tourism and without oil-burning cars. But he's a lot more than just talk. He'll sell you a surprisingly clever and practical car that'll run for hundreds (or hundreds upon hundreds) of miles without a drop of sweet crude.

Is getting your hands on a Model S (or a used Roadster, or maybe a pre-production Model X) worth quitting cold turkey? You won't be able to drive many other cars, but you're getting a free ride on the (possible) future-train pretty early on. Your neighbors will be impressed, not only by your car, but also by the silencing of your leaf-blower.

Would you do it? Let us know down below.

No, because I live in an Apt. and my power bill is already too high. I'd rather walk for a gas powered car I can drive once a month. Maybe a McLaren P1? Or even a Focus ST would be awesome.
