Wow that's some top level video quality production, well done. What did you think of the E-Tron in person? Thanks for sharing.

I was yesterday again at the Pop up store in Zurich, Switzerland. To be honest, high quality and nice car. Of course, the engine is not as powerful as the Tesla MS 90D.
I prefer to have a high quality car with nice features (Head up display, Offroad modus on a real SUV etc.) than only a powerful engine.
Looking forward to get early January my e-tron 55.

that's why i'm also looking at Mercedes, they have been know for cutting edge technology and being early adopters. few other car makers execute like them.

Never been a fan of the minimalistic cabin designs of Tesla products, even if their vehicles are more powerful. I also think its incredibly dangerous to have all of your vehicles controls isolated to just one tablet screen.

fact is it works and we're not just seeing it with automobiles but also with designs in many other areas of daily life, architecture being a big one in city centers.

Does it work though? If you've ever been behind the wheel of a Tesla it can be very overcomplicated. Simple adjustments to your mirrors or heating requires fiddling through multiple menus. The only reason there hasn't been more accidents is because of all the safety systems.

i'm a fan of the design layout but the tech's interface does indeed need to be reworked but from what i realized its not stopping the average consumer from buying and that's what matters ultimately. the amount of reasons people have for buying a Tesla far outpaces the negatives.

Tesla could easily address this issues with more voice controls. That's the route we've been seeing companies like MB go with their new MBUX system and it works incredibly well.

I was impressed by how much they've incorporated into the system that doesn't just pick up on simple commands but it keeps up with the times and ultimately learning about you. Can't be hard for other car makers to integrate it with companies like Google and Amazon willing to lend a hand.

BMW, Ford, Toyota, VW and other already have begun Alexa integration in their vehicles and I expect that more brands will follow suit. Inevitably I would imagine these systems will also be able to interact/control your smart home devices.

I guess you're with the media? Sure seems like some sort of media event, if not then you're super lucky.
In other videos shared from that even it shows the e-tron tested in some challenging winter driving conditions. If you got to experience that i'll be interested in hearing your feedback.
