Will power folding mirrors ever arrive for this wide car? At least 'wide' by European parking standards......

Will power folding mirrors ever arrive for this wide car? At least 'wide' by European parking standards......

The Tesla Ownership Experience Team verified that the Model S does not currently have the mechanical components necessary for power folding side mirrors. So, this feature cannot be implemented via software only and therefore cannot be added.

Had a test drive here in Oslo, Norway the other day. Fantastic car to drive! It was minus 12 degrees Celsius outside, but the car was warm and nice inside.

What the Tesla rep told me when I asked about the power folding mirrors was, "wait and see" with a smile on he's face, so I guess there is still hope.

Keep in mind, almost half of ALL EU reservations are in Norway! So far over 800. And the average parking space here is 2.5 meters. I believe that makes a difference when the decision is finally made ;)

The fact that they are not there already is probably someone's idiosyncrasy in the design team. A bit like the third row seats.
The feature is a necessity in some some cases and a desirable one in others. I want it to prevent damage to the car in parking lots.
An absolute NECESSITY is the interior grab handle, and NOT so one has a place to hang coats - rather it is required to assist mobility impaired people!!!
