content=”There aren’t all too many cars on the road right now that can change lanes and maintain highway speeds by themselves.

Teslas can do just that.”

title=”The crazy HEPA filter that’s used with Tesla’s Bioweapon Defence Mode might be overkill, but hey, why not.”
content=”Sometimes overkill is a good thing.

In this case, passengers inside Teslas equipped with this mode are protected from most bacteria and contaminants that might otherwise seep into the cabin.”

title=”Teslas are some of the very few cars currently on the market that can be retrieved remotely.”
content=”Tesla owners can tell their cars to move forward or backward by using the key fob or the Tesla smartphone app.

This makes it a ton easier to get in and out of the car when it has to be stowed in a tight garage spot.”

title=”What other luxury cars do you know that can be equipped with a vegan-friendly interior?”
content=”Because most luxury cars come with at least partial-leather interiors, there are few that are considered to have vegan-friendly interiors.

Teslas on the other hand is in the clear.”

title=”Tesla’s network of Supercharger separates it from the rest of the electric car crowd.”
content=”Earlier this month we reported that Tesla had over 1,700 Superchargers set up in America. If anything, that number has since grown.

That means that owners can charge their Teslas and add 150 miles of range to their empty batteries in just a half hour of charging. For free.

Not a bad deal.”

title=”Though there have been a few issues with them, the Model X’s Falcon Wing doors are like nothing else out there.”
content=”How cool is it to have doors that open straight out and up like those on the Model X?

Extremely cool.

We’ll just have to see if Tesla is able to work out those few quirks owners were upset about.”

content=”If you thought the P90D Model S was quick with its zero to 60 time of 3.2 seconds, the 2.8 second time with Ludicrous Mode engaged will blow you away.

And pretty much every other car on the road, for that matter.”

content=”Thanks to Tesla’s over-the-air update system, cars can be regularly updated without the hassle of dealing with some annoying Service Advisor at a dealership.

It doesn’t get much more convenient than that.”
