When I said Tesla's were fugly I was mainly thinking about the X and 3. When I was in Honolulu last year I noticed the Tesla shop and had a look. Even the S is kind of ugly, compared to other cars at that price point. I don't have the design language to express why I think it's ugly sorry, other than to say it's a cacophony of varied shapes, some of them quite odd. I just looked at those cars and thought yuck.
I guess we should remember it's an American car, and it's been a long time since a beautiful car was produced in America
Setting aesthetics aside, Tesla have made a pigs ear of production. They are supposedly doing better now. But the NZ website is still saying reserve now ($1,500) for delivery in 12 to 18 months. Oh and you can't test drive one. WTF?
You are not wrong when it comes to Teslas management, it beats me how they are staying in business. I wouldn't invest in one of their cars as I have concerns as to their viability and when Elon Musk gets bored with his toy. I also know what you mean by the X and the 3 they are not great lookers and I think its the way they are dealing with the grill or lack there of. The areas I have the biggest issues with is the build quality, their pricing is in the upper price groups such Mercedes and BMW etc and higher but they feel cheap and not that well put together, the other area in the interior it looks low rent and teh huge "iPad" for a dash is ugly, wrong, fiddly and dangerous. Too much time taken off the road ahead even to turn on the wipers or to adjust the aircon.
