After the Tesla Model S Horror Story, another cold weather experience with Tesla Model S.

Regina Gasser driving the Model S in –4o F temperatures.

Cold weather battery problems, difficulty in finding EV charging stations, EV charging adapter problems all of which resulted in - 
My poor unsuspecting friend and I planned a trip to Rochester, MN to visit a mutual friend and her new family addition.  Normally a trip to and from Rochester with a stop in Dixon each way would take about 16 hours.  Ours took 65.
At least she went through the painful process in good humor.

Tesla Model S needs to be labeled as a Beta car. It is not ready for general use.
