How Green Is My Tesla?

This week I persuaded my old friend from Germany, Dirk Carstens, to give me the run-down on the pros and cons of owning a Tesla. He’s a trained physicist so there’s not much about the EV technology that phases him.

Some of the stuff we discussed:

  • the all-important battery, how to treat it, how long it lasts, how much it’s worth
  • the amount of data Tesla accumulates on you, your car, your driving…
  • when autonomous driving goes wrong
  • hydrogen fuel (not for the Tesla…)
