I was also at one point interested in the Model S 40, as my daily commute ist less than 30 miles and I would have semi-regularly perhaps a weekend trip of about 100 miles.
I hate leather in a car, so I would have gone with cloth seats, but no seat memory is a no go at that price level.
Reasons why I still haven't signed up for any Model S:
- unknown facts about the Euro-Model S (pricing, service plan pricing, standard features/Euro-specs)
- no financial incentives like tax credits in Germany (ok, not quite true, you don't have to pay car tax for five years, but if you have driven an efficient car before that tax saving amounts to a few hundred Euro at best, nowhere near the sums you get in other countries)
- possible alternatives available next year that might better fit my needs/budget (Golf VII electric, Zoe, Mercedes B-Class e-cell)
Add to that the final realization how ginourmously huge the Model S is, which here certainly will lead to some problems in everyday usage.
