Austria is having a love affair with electro mobility (e-mobility). In that category, the American company Tesla Motors has pioneered the path for batteries and charger infrastructure across much of Europe. From the spacious interior (read: a minivan for the young at heart) to the autopilot features, this car screams “roadtrip” in the most contemporary way possible. When you’re stuck in traffic or on a long stretch of highway, the “advanced driver assistance system” means you can sing along to music, full blast as the car edges along or holds your speed and lane. Unlike the United States, Austria has government subsidies and other perks for electric car owners. At their Vienna flagship store on Herrengasse, you can inspect the insides of the Model X (as well as the Model S and Model 3) and even book a test ride to see just what everybody’s raving about.
