This was my first time driving a Tesla and Christopher provided very good instructions. It was easy to recharge at a Tesla super recharging station which took about 20 minutes to go from 30 miles range to 180. The 150 miles of driving cost me under $9 in electric. Very nice car, fun to drive and inexpensive to power up vs. the cost of California gasoline.
