Jo Wood

‘The Tesla offers beautiful, guilt-free driving, and I fell in love with this car. I would buy one because it’s the vehicle of the future and the coolest car on the road. It’s my next car, but in black!’

‘I loved the Tesla but did find the charging situation limiting. It was a speed machine though, which I liked – I was surprised by how sporty and responsive it was for an electric car. If it were cheaper I’d consider it.’
