Can't they at least print a grille on that area on the front face of the car?

Seriously uncool due due to the stupid mangling of decent language.

215 miles of range. WT and indeed F.

Having recognised that the form of technology meant that no grille was required, could they not think of a more interested design plan than just "let's make one with a grille, then replace it with a piece of blank bodywork"?

They could have done absolutely anything with that space. It just looks awkward.

I actually quite like it. I like the idea of owning one, not sure I ever would but it looks OK for an affordable electric car, has a decent range.

However I read the other day the Elon Musk is only knitting on one needle. He believes we are all living in a Matrix. If that's the case then he has not really designed the (to date) ultimate electric car.

The car whether real or not is absolutely not cool unless you're a leaf wearing ecomentalist.

It looks like one of those cars that has been designed specifically to be in a piece of boring instructional motoring literature, where they couldn't afford the rights to a branded car, so created their own mock-up.

It's all well and good but looks horrible. Uncool.

+"Affordable" full size EV saloon.
- It doesn't really exist yet as a production car. I think it's a scam tbh.

I find it looks pretty good and the grille area will look more natural with a number plate screwed to it. 215 miles is a bit disappointing. Still, it would suffice for 99% of our journeys. Musk is one of the world's few visionaries and, if only for that, I think it just scrapes into cool.

I agree with all that except the cool bit. It's not cool at all unless you're a fig leaf wearing hippy.

I do however fancy one! (The car not the hippy).

Tesla's are cool if only because they did a performance pack called the 'Ludicrous Speed option'

This plus fresh air should really be sub-zero, but I voted Cool before I thought it through

Well, if it's not directly up my hooter that is cool.
If the juice comes from fossil fuel that's not ideal, but the filthy exhaust might at least avoid harming mamal lungs on it's way to the stratosphere.

Teslas are at least ready to be part of the solution when/as we generate electricity increasingly (hopefully) from renewables.

Are the words "Newcastle" and "had" significant?

It looks too weird to be cool. I'm reminded of an episode of the Twilight Zone where a boy has the power to take away people's mouths.
