I drove a Tesla roadster last Saturday and was very impressed. If the S was available right now, I would consider it, but it's looking like the end of next year before I could buy one, and the pricing is still unsettled and bound to go up by the launch IMHO. SWSBO does not want to wait another year for an EV, and paying half as much for the Leaf appeals to me, despite the exciting features, appearance and performance attributes of the Tesla S. If it turns out to be everything the promo hype claims, it will be quite a car.
Maybe it'll be our next EV purchase down the line...
