A social media star has revealed why she has traded her electric Tesla Model Y for a petrol-powered BMW X5.
Meghan Husker regularly posts short videos about her life to her TikTok channel @meglskalla, occasionally looking at her car.
In one of her videos, Meghan explained that she would often get frustrated with the infotainment system on the Tesla.
She said: “I thought I would miss the simplicity of the Tesla where it was just the screen and nothing else, but I love the dashboard and everything on the BMW, especially the Apple CarPlay because the Tesla didn’t have that.
“So, this is my CarPlay and, if anyone asks, I am a [Apple] Maps girl. I hated the map navigation system on the Tesla, I always got lost.”

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are offered on many new cars and allow drivers to access features of their phone on the touchscreen in a safer manner.
However, Tesla do not feature either of these systems on their cars, instead featuring a comprehensive infotainment system.
The company has previously claimed that they believe it is not necessary to implement third party software in their car to improve the experience behind the wheel.

Meghan also noted that the build quality of her current BMW is superior to the Tesla and features small touches to improve the ownership experience.
She added: “And the finishes are just elevated from the Tesla, I feel like the Tesla was like a plastic toy car almost.
“And I love that I can cover my sunroof, the Tesla’s was always exposed, I love that I have the option to open or close it.”
Nevertheless, sales of Tesla cars remain strong, with the 24,148 Model Y SUVs sold in the UK during August 2023, making it the third best-selling car of the month.
In addition, the Telsa Model Y was also the world’s best-selling during the first quarter of 2023, overtaking the famous Toyota Corolla for the first time.
The company is also set to begin mass-production of the long awaited Cybertruck, a bold-looking pickup truck that was first revealed in 2019.
