A little more than a week ago we were teased with the above image (via twitter) showing the Model S in Jay Leno's famous garage with the promise of a video review would soon follow. Today Jay follows through on that promise with the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage. Click through to see the video.

In the first half of the video, Jay does a walk-around of Elon Musk's black Model S, discussing the design with Tesla Motors Chief Designer, Franz von Holzhausen. In the second half, the pair take a dark blue Model S out on the highway as well as on local roads. Watch the video and tell us what you think in comments.


Jay has previously reviewed the first production Tesla Roadster, as well as the Roadster 2.5.

    I saw two Model S at his garage? He got his one early?

    Huh? He also mentioned hitting the gas, or taking his foot off the gas, a half dozen times.

    Heh. Like I said, Tesla brought two to demo. They walked around Elon's Founders' #2 (checking out the external styling, the charge port, and the rear facing kid seats) and then drove the dark blue marketing car.

    Great video! I love the line near the end where Jay emphatically says that they've fixed the range problem with the EV.

    So hopefully he'll make a Model S his new daily driver.

    Has anyone noticed the maintanance he has to do on his Baker Electric? (on 9:26) He specificaly says ZERO maintanance. So why would we pay 600$ per year?
