The ease of driving it, attributable to Issigonis’s careful and thoughtful suspension and steering design, as well as the comparatively low weight of the car, were factors in that as well as the comfort and space it provided. It was as modern and progressive in 1948 as the ADO16 Morris 1100 was in 1962, and let down only by the relatively weak and old side valve engine. In 1942, the first scale model was produced and the following year work began on a hand-formed steel prototype. By 1945, a full scale static prototype close to the familiar production form was completed.

The advantage of not having an exhaust that spits toxic fumes becomes absolutely clear when there’s blistering snow outside and you’ve to warm up your car beforehand. You can easily run your Tesla in your closed garage, away from the cold, and warm it up nicely before you can get in. However, never having to visit anywhere else, other than his home, to charge his car for daily driving, is a definite advantage according to Jason.
