Tesla’s Left-Hand-Drive UK Vehicles Come With A Grabber For Your Drive-Thru
Tesla has now started to deliver its first left-hand-drive Model S and Model X vehicles to UK customers and appears to be giving them a new dragging stick.
Now that Tesla isn’t selling right-hand-drive S/X vehicles in the UK it’s left buyers with left-hand-drive vehicles as the only way to get hold of a Model S and Model X.
Now, buyers who decided to go with the left-hand-drive vehicles rather than cancel their orders when right-hand-drive vehicles were canceled, are starting to receive their vehicles. And Electrek reports that they’re being given a grabber so that they can still reach things that come to the wrong side of the car — like parking tickets and drive-thrus.
The Reacher is a grabbing stick meant for drivers to be able to reach the passenger window, presumably to grab things like parking receipts and drive-thru items.
That is, of course, madness. Although as the new car owners will admit they were not forced to keep their orders for cars whose steering wheels are now on the wrong side.
We’re not sure that we’d be happy with using a grabbing stick after having spent a small fortune on an EV, but it’s their money and their choice. We just wish that Tesla hadn’t canceled the right-hand-drive vehicles in the first place.
