Dog mode is great. I take my dog almost everywhere. With the EV I just leave it on and locked. She like NPR.

I have an ICE in my electric BMW i3 REX.  Does that work for you?

I was being sarcastic. I’m 100% electric on both cars.

The coolest thing about Tesla is not the amazing acceleration, which it definitely can do.  It's the dynamic braking that saves your brakes.  If you are in cruise-mode (almost always), you don't need to brake except for complete stops.  The brake pads last 100K-200K miles or more.

Also, if you have to deal with stop-and-go traffic, just let the car do this for you in Autopilot mode.  Sit back and enjoy the music.

Of course all of you with ICE cars will be out of luck without an electrical motor.

In your case, its called the starter.   :o

I would like to affirm Steve Nugent's finding!

I sold my S for a three.  (personal preference).  The standard stereo in the 3 is better than the upgraded one in the S and I must say the first car I felt the need NOT to upgrade!!!!

Wonderful cars on all fronts.

3 and a new aftermarket bumper that is a stellar redesign.  $2000.
