rides4_1.jpgWith the all-electric Tesla Roadster rapidly approaching an actual consumer launch, the “can’t wait” expectations of those on the waiting list is reaching a fever pitch. As part of their Customer Drive program in October, Tesla wanted to reassure those in line that the car was in fact coming and offered to provide some prototype test drives to prove as such. One of those lucky enough to get behind the wheel was Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Michael ‘Flea’ Balzary. Below are some of his comments regarding the experience,

“I get into it and pull away from the curb……dead silence wow!!!!…. man it was unbelievable. it drove like nothing i have ever been in before, made my porsche feel like a golf cart! It took off like a rocket ship, handled so sensitively, it was just amazing and fun and thrilling. I am so happy i went with my gut and bought that car. Yeah it is a long wait, but man, the thing is awesome. The silence makes ya feel like you are floating, and it just rocks, it was the funnest car, i have ever been in, with the possible exception of Hillel Slovak’s Datsun B210 in 1979, he was the only guy i knew who had a car, and we listened to lot of zeppelin in there….To enjoy driving as much as is possible in that Tesla, and to pollute nothing, no emissions, into the air, is a great great feeling.”

Flea is also using solar power in his new home and plans on charging his new Tesla (which will probably come sometime early 2008) with clean, green power. Nice. For a great new video of the Tesla in action, check out this clip from Mahalo Daily!
