  1. Dan Says:

    With regard to the Tesla Model S, it’s really a mid-size luxury sedan, not a full-size luxury sedan. It makes the EPA rating on full-size due to its luggage capacity(a combination of the frunk & its hatchback design), not based on passenger volume. The mid-size vehicles like the 5 Series and E Class are actually larger in passenger volume. The S Class and 7 Series are significantly larger and are offered in extended wheelbase versions as well.

    Gary Witzenburg: Keep him coming on the show. Has great comments, not afraid to ask guests questions that make them uncomfortable. Keeps the conversation lively.
    John, Gary Vasilash and Gary Witzenburg make a great team.
