I have seen a few of these around Holland.

Edit: That article is annoying.

It's funny how many ties this company has in Michigan, my company sold them a press line.

There is at least one Model S in my neighborhood and I see others nearly everyday at the grocery store or parked in Birmingham. I think it's a great looking and the majority of reviews I read about it pretty positive. It will be interesting to see what they can do with the Model E (or whatever they ultimately decide to call it) when/if it gets released in 2016.

No arguing that the Tesla brings teh sexay, but the Volt is still more practical at this time.
