Extant has a very high density of Tesla Model S cars … or perhaps just one used over and over again. Set in the future, all of the vehicles sound electric – overlain in the soundtrack. Not sure if the sound is that of a Tesla Model S, but it could be. I am almost to the end of Season 1. Model X and BWM i3 are also shown (maybe in Season 2?).

After reading I want x2, wherein I comment on test driving the bullet-fast Tesla Model S P85D, my lifelong friend emailed me and commented:

Superchargers come to Europe
I was fortunate to travel to Norway (Stavanger) on business several times in the early 2000s. It is an extremely beautiful country. I wish I could afford to live there.
