Gotta post Bjørn's tongue-in-cheek thumbnail for the video too
I got less than 3 minutes into the video and stopped watching. He did not know what he was doing and I was not interested in watching him fumble around.Can't guarantee that you'll like Bjørn's style.
Bjorn's theory that the i-Pace is small inside is his personal taste.
The fact he didn't mention ingress or egress was probably not an oversight.[having seen lots of Bjorn's reviews of various other makes] I don't think he's biased, but his daily-driver is a Model-X so that would be his natural comparison. I think far more likely he's young, small, and got in and out easily, he won't think getting in/out of a Model-X is a problem, and thus had nothing to say on the matter. My elderly in-laws find getting out of Model-S (no air-suspension on my car) very hard work.
He's a small guy, so the driver seat would not have been far back, but even so it did not look "roomy" in the rear. I've seen the numbers which indicate plenty of space, and I have NOT seen one in the flesh so no actual personal experience.
That's my understanding (from other reviews too). No lag on Passing. Also I read someone suggest (might have been here, in which case my apologies) that the lag is to be a closer simulation of ICE-launch. But I can't imagine why one would simulate that (without making it a configurable-option). If you can launch off-the-line because it is EV, then I can't think of a good reason to de-tune that abilityOdd he didn't mention the lag when passing where it's important. Is there no lag in passing? Only from a dead stop where it's not important except for magazine numbers?
Agree pAssing far more important than Launch. The only time I use Launch is when I'm mucking about ...
He was starting from a standing-start without having read the manual, much like a large percentage of the people who will own it He found things on the screen far faster than I spotted them in the Video, so I would have spent even longer faffing aroundI got less than 3 minutes into the video and stopped watching. He did not know what he was doing and I was not interested in watching him fumble around.
Bjørn's main plus points wereI do appreciate, however, any comments that have extracted anything useful that Bjørn may have said
LOL. He's using an 12-inch iPad Pro sized mobile phone.If you have a HUD combined with steering wheel controls and an instrument cluster, you don't need to monkey with your ashtray controls except for initial setup.
I'm assuming you have a 17" screen on your cellphone? Otherwise you'll be REALLY sad.
If his test was correct, Tesla has a noise system you cannot turn off. 65db is about as quiet as cars get in the rain. You can pay $250,000 but you not going to get lower sound levels. Teslas are all in the 70's on dry pavement. Big difference between 65 and 70, it's logarithmic.
I agree - some sort of "large print" version would be helpful to a lot of people. I use reading glasses, but I manage with the screen, but my wife has difficulty (she wears glasses to drive) depending on which half of the screen the content is in, so definitely a problem looking for a solution.My main gripe with tablet screens like the Tesla systems is I need to use my reading glasses to use them.
