    As a slight counter to that argument Tim Ellis has confirmed that they did look into the vehicle tax reduction for low emission vehicles and have secured the discount for Tesla Model S. It only make about $30 difference, but it is something.

    Also tried the MAA calculator.

    For me the range was $503 to $881. Cheapest was QBE, most expensive was NRMA.

    Allianz were second cheapest at $544 so I am pretty happy if that is what I get charged.

    This is interesting, I guess they haven't broken the embargo because they reviewed it in America!

    True - but they didn't drive it in this video....I assume there will be a part 2.

    I guess I don't need the hand over talk now!

Check your own quotes with the calculator, and email in your findings!
    I tried a heap of different combinations and could only come up with a max of $100 difference between all of them. Since the max was $600 are you saying that your green slip is only $250?

    Allianz worked out around $880 and QBE around $450. Maybe my age or the fact that I included 26 year old drivers.


    OK, I recalculated leaving out the other drivers and that made a huge difference. Much closer result to Mark E.

    My prices ranged between $500 and $880. If Tesla are getting cheaper than that I'm very happy! Otherwise, I simply don't care. It's insurance and we do need it to be road legal.

    Based from USA, so no embargoes breached, I guess.

    My expectation would be that the local drive articles are embargoed so that they will appear on the day after the launch online and in newspapers and will be combined with announcements from the launch particularly supercharger rollout. My best bet for the launch is the evening of Thursday the 11th of December or if not then the evening of Friday the 12th. We will know soon as invitations are going out next week.

    The section about braking was a bit confusing/misleading. He seems to be suggesting that you leave regen braking in "low" mode. I don't know anyone who doesn't get used to the regenerative braking in the first ten minutes, and leave it as normal for the rest of their life. And there is no connection between the regen (on the accelerator pedal) and the brake pedal, which is what gives Prii and Leafs their inconsistent brake feel.
