The car is fully functional family sedan, that offers the luxury of a premium class, accelerates like a sports car with 0-100 under 5s irrespective of it being an electric car.

That night the miracle happened and Tesla operators sitting in the office connected to the car over the air and went through the troubleshooting of it and fixed it. Next morning when the customer woke up and was on his way to the centre he was astonished to see that the car was as good as new.
