Tesla Model S Electric Sedan's Huge Haptic Touchscreen Dashboard In Action

When we first saw Tesla's Model S electric sedan, we noticed a big, flashy touchscreen taking the place of the dashboard's console. TechCrunch took a test drive and learned a little more about it.


The Model S's touchscreen wasn't fully functional during the demo (the car's first with press), so internet browsing and presumably GPS weren't working. But we do know the touchscreen will control entertainment as well as navigation, and that it'll offer haptic feedback, probably rumbling a little bit when touched. The car should be priced around $50,000. [TechCrunch]
