Club Night at Tesla Cars

May club night hosted by Tesla Cars - report by Allan Crosby

For our May Club Night, over 60 Members and guests attended an evening kindly hosted by Tesla Manchester. Their six month presence in Stockport has brought some very innovative Tesla thinking to not just the local car dealerships, but to the car industry worldwide – so much so that they are prepared to share their designs and technology with other car manufacturers!

Naturally, cars were on show and demonstrations of the cars were given; but also an informative and interesting presentation was made regarding some very innovative thoughts, the Tesla Company’s strategy, and its products, including the new Model X – a competitor in the 4x4 market.

Some interesting questions were raised over the 250 mile range of the cars and the provision of the necessary fast-charging stations across the country. Also, food for thought was given when considering features such as: auto-parking, “summon” mode, and “auto-pilot”, not the least of which was over the Law’s capability to keep up with and adapt to the innovative advances built into the cars!

In summary, Tesla has widened the traditional horizons of car ownership, and by hosting the evening for us, Members were presented with the future – available now. However, the planned closure of the A6 for the drag-strip racing – to test the P90D Model’s “Ludicrous” Mode, which gives a 0-60 acceleration time of 2.8 seconds, proved not to be possible on the night!

And finally, thanks must go to Andrew Reeves, Jon Whitby and the rest of the Tesla Team in Manchester for hosting a successful and very pleasant gathering for PCGB Members.
