Undoubtedly can not question the engineering and technology that goes into these, and this is one of the nicer examples i have seen but does no one else thing they just look like a mondeo??

It looks nothing like a mondeo to me

The funny thing is people saying that whilst the ‘M’ car is based on the regular model

Don’t get me wrong, I can see how much better a M car looks, but to say the model S looks like a mondeo or Mazda is madness to me!

Again, each to their own though!

Comparison.....

Sorry Ste but that post highlights how much it does look like a Mondeo (with a bit of Mazda Japanese influence!).



Especially the forthcoming Mazda range.






Awesome Car but for me they need to be less American in looks.

Not for me but a lovely car all the same. I donít think it looks even remotly like a mondeo but I do think that the styling is a bit bland like the mondeo. After I saw pics of yours I went searching on autotrader, Tesla used and even had a look at some YouTube vids. The biggest shock for me is having to preheat the batteries and cool down the batteries at different times. How are you finding that?

I guess you knew it would divide opinion Ste mate, and I know you're OK with that, which is why I can be honest with you.

I have to agree. I've never looked at one twice, which is primarily why I could never entertain one. No connection in looks or sound for my taste, the two things that have inspired passion in cars since a lad, both qualities I rate more highly than performance figures, too. Happy to take your word they drive well (and know you can pedal mate), but even that could never be enough to turn my opinion over the styling and lack of soundtrack and smell. Sorry mate

I totally get your reasons though. Seems a sensible solution for the mega-miles you do. And I'm genuinely pleased you're made up with it and forward-thinking enough to embrace the new technology.

I'm obviously a dinosaur: I'm still struggling with the demise of large NA engines to smaller turbo units, let alone the move to drop internal combustion altogether! So what do I know

At first glance I too thought it a Mondeo, I also see the Mazda resemblance.

It’s an American car isn’t it, prbibly explans the styling?

Interesting how it splits opinion, pretty much everyone who has seen mine thinks jag/Aston/Maserati. In the flash it looks nothing like that Mazda (certainly not anything like a mondeo!) that is a great looking Mazda though.

I actually think in the flesh it looks more Maserati/jag but many people have made this resemblance. Aston rapide S.
