OMSI After Dark Event

Last night Tesla Trips was invited to be a vendor at the monthly “OMSI After Dark Series.” An excellent event that was quite busy last night. There were over 20 local breweries and many other local vendors as well. The next one is on October 30th and costumes are recommended for the Halloween theme. Tickets are only $25, which includes a tasting glass and tokens for tasters. It’s one of my personal favorite brewing events. Plus now that the Oregon Zoo no longer does their annual brew fest, I can safely say OMSI’s is my favorite in Portland.

Yesterday there was a Tesla Motors sponsored meet up in Lake Oswego. A fairly overcast Sunday with a brief downpour accompanied by some lightning but overall a great turnout. There were quite a few local owners that showed up. Andy from the local Tesla Owners Group, PDX Tesla was there demoing off features of his car to curious people passing by. With the meet up being centrally located in Lake Oswego on a weekend was a great way for people unfamiliar with Tesla Motors to find out more. You can see ‘Scarlett’ in the background.

Hood and Columbia River Gorge EV Itinerary from Travel Oregon. Continue reading

Tesla Model S Walkthrough Video

Tesla Motors just posted a video that visually goes through the components and advantages of the vehicle. The video is also broken down into smaller ‘bite-sized’ videos highlighting certain focused aspects of the car.  I would have embedded the videos directly into this post, but unfortunately that is not currently a possibility. Check the links for the actual videos.

We’ve received questions from guests about how spacious a Model S is, specifically the rear seats, and I’ve generally compared it to some of the other larger luxury sedans, like an S-Class Mercedes (Mercedes and Tesla have more in common than you’d think…).  Tesla Trips is participating in some upcoming local events at which you’ll be able to see the spaciousness for yourselves.
