Pro tip: Plug in your Tesla S when clocking off, lest you run out of juice mid hot pursuit

"Perhaps only in highway pursuit does the Tesla have an advantage"

Probably not, given the traffic in and around Fremont. Also, the Explorer is a taller seat, allowing you to see traffic ahead of you over the top of other cars. For another thing, it has a higher ground clearance, allowing you to go around stopped traffic in the verge/brush/tules and generally go over curbs and other hazards that would trip up a Tesla. To say nothing of the emergency equipment that an SUV can carry with easy accessibility.
