I could not find this mentioned anywhere, but I do apologize if this has been previously discussed here on the forum.
I've been patiently waiting for my Model S now for what feels like a decade. I've had "test-sits" and test-drives at every opportunity, and I do look forward to it.
But I think it is a really big car. I'm used to fairly long and wide cars, but when getting my Model S I expect that it will become my preference both for inner city as well as highway and mountain drives. (I currently drive a small EV for my daily commute into town and the SUV is tucked away in the garage waiting for those trips that my EV can't handle)
Trying to find out what to compare to, I've tried to find cars of the same size. But the Model S seems to be wider than most.. Do you know of any cars as wide as the Model S? (esp. including the external mirrors)
Here are some dimensions (length in millimeter x width in millimeter including external mirrors)
Tesla Model S: 4976 x 2187
Porsche Panamera: 4970 x 2114
Audi S7/A7: 4980 x 2139
BMW 7 : 5079 x 2142
VW CC: 4802 x 2090
Some are longer, but where are the cars that are wider? I know that e.g. the VW Touareg is 2208mm wide, but I do not consider that the same type of car really. Are there any wide sedans out there?
