    Model S Owner's Manual

    Just heard back from a Tesla Ownership Experience Advocate, Stephen Smith. The response was prompt and complete, so kudos to Tesla for that.

    According to Stephen, a Model S owner's manual is not yet available. Tesla says that they will hopefully have something for us to educate ourselves within the next couple of months as the bulk of deliveries begin.

    This implies to me that there is still a lot of flux in Model S development.

    Isn't it computerized? Wait, where's AnOutsider? He can post his video of the manual!

    heh, the manual has been pulled from more recent software updates. Guess they don't want us poking around yet.

    It's probably not that they *couldn't* get one to us...but it's still so fluid they'd rather not publish it at this time.

    Same here, are signature holders not going to get one when they take delivery? or is delivery going to be delayed at least a month or two?

    Just curious....Now there's a few cars out there, have any of the new owners checked back in to their "My Tesla" page to see if this button has appeared?:

    I'd guess that Tesla would make manuals available to all reservation holders when they're ready. No button in my Tesla page .

    Not necessarily. I didn't get that button until my Roadster was delivered.
