Have been in Atlanta for all of 3 hours and have already seen three different Model S - it's the new Prius!
During my daily drive from San Francisco to Cupertino, I see at least four of them, not counting the one owned by one of my colleagues.Silicon Valley (Santa Clara County) has the bulk of S-Models right now. The policymakers are obviously taking notice: http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/20...s-to-update-building-codes-for-electric-cars/.
This bodes well for the future of EVs.
I was told by someone knowledgeable about these things that I should not attach to the plate to the tow hook because it could potentially transmit the force of a relatively light collision (such as someone backing into the car while trying to parallel park) directly to the car's frame, thus converting a minor hit into something a lot more serious. On the other hand, I don't want to give California Highway's finest an excuse to pull me over and I just can't bring myself to drilling holes in the front of the car. That's a perfect example of a "First World Problem."Its painful to see the plate on the front of the car, but at least you moved it off to the side. I get it, just painful after how beautiful the car looks without it.
