Difficulty of exiting vehicle in the absence of electrical power (no mechanical door handles)
Wait.. I knew Tesla have had some utterly stupid ideas but this?
When are you most likely to need to get out of the car? = When are you more likely to lose electrical power in a car = 'In an accident'. How dumb can these people be?!?
If that's true, there seriously needs to be some arrests made among the people responsible. Might look great from a marketing perspective, but should be at the very least 'negligent manslaughter' types of charges among those responsible. A way to quickly exit the car when it has an electrical failure is an absolute must.
