    Default Power-tran on Tesla when comparing it with new Volvos...

    The service advisor hinted that new Volvo power-tran is lightweight like those of Telsa.
    Hmmm...what does it mean beyond a sales pitch...who would know?

    First, it's power TRAIN not tran, and what any why would he compare Volvo to Tesla, there is no comparison in any area besides they both have four wheels and tires and a roof!
    Tesla is certainly NOT light in any way, it's actually a fairly heavy car and neither is Volvo except the new 4 cyl engine a bit lighter than the 5 cylinder engines
