Tesla hosting ride and drive day

Tesla is inviting key players in the motor industry to get behind the wheel of its new Model S electric car next week.

The electric car manufacturer is hosting the ride and drive event at Chartwell House in Derbyshire on 15 December, when company experts will also be on hand to discuss the functionality and performance of a model that has already received widespread acclaim.

Top Gear Magazine called it ‘the most important car’ it has tested, while The Daily Telegraph named it as its Car of the Year and described it as ‘the most important car of the last 20 years’.

bodyshop deputy editor Alan Feldberg will be at the event and provide a first-hand account of the driving experience.
