By leveraging Tesla’s established charging ports, Ford is demonstrating its commitment to providing a faster charge for it’s customers.
Orella Acoustics’ launch is an exciting development for music lovers who prioritize a high-quality listening experience while driving.
After an NHTSA investigation, there is a Tesla recall of over 360,000 vehicles in the US due to a software issue related to its new Full Self-Driving (FSD) system.
Tesla has announced a further $3.6 Billion investment into the automakers Gigafactory plant in Nevada, adding 3,000 new jobs & two new factories.
Tesla has released a timelapse video of its Tesla Semi electric truck completing a 500-mile trip with a full load on a single charge.
Luckily, with backing from NASA and DARPA, Influit has developed an incredible flow battery that solves all of these issues in one fell swoop.
Tesla does indeed dominate the US market for EVs, however it’s not the same everywhere around the world. And we have to assume that their market share in the US will dwindle once the major OEMs continue to broaden their EV model lineup in the coming years:
Five years after the concept was originally announced, Elon Musk said that deliveries of the production model should start at the end of this year. Let’s have a quick look of what we should expect once the Semi hits the road:
The world’s largest EV battery maker CATL recently announced a novel Kirin battery technology that allows for higher energy density than Tesla’s 4680 battery cells in the same footprint.
After already making a name for themselves with performance add-ons that come in the form of wattage boosts (with uncomfortable levels of acceleration), Tesla will now be entering the grip side of factory performance packages, notably their new $5,500 “Model 3 Track Package”, according to Elektrek.co.
The new Porsche Taycan versus the Tesla Model 3 Performance: which can launch the most?
The media swirl around Tesla is laden with histrionics and conjecture. No doubt Elon’s style brings some of this on, as does the need for media to generate clicks and page views.
Track days are a lot of fun. Our experience is that Teslas, including the Model S and the Model 3 are a lot of fun. Combine the two and you would seem to get something good. Fun squared?
In this Winding Road POV video, Tedward checks out the new Tesla Model 3. This is the long range, RWD version. Ride along and hear if silence is really silence.
On Christmas day, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce a little gift to fans of the company’s Lotus-based all-electric sports car: a substantial boost in the Roadster’s driving range. Taking lessons learned while fine-tuning the Model S sedan, Tesla has now applied that development experience to the diminutive two seater, which Musk asserts will now “enable non-stop travel from LA to SF”.
During the first day of the MPG Track Days event, Tesla took the opportunity to introduce journalists who hadn’t had any previous seat time in the Model S a chance to give it a brief spin around Pasadena. Of course we jumped at the chance to hop into the driver’s seat of the sport sedan, here outfitted with the P85 high performance package.
Like it or not, the automobile is about to change permanently and dramatically. That change will be built upon the transition from driver-operated to driverless cars.
With every lofty claim made and delivered upon, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk inches closer to becoming a modern day Howard Hughes (sans the socially crippling OCD). Back in September, Musk proclaimed that Tesla would be producing fully autonomous vehicles by the close of the decade, an assertion that seemed lofty at best. But at last night’s unveiling of the newest product from Tesla Motors, the all-wheel-drive Model S “D”, not only did Musk unveil the quickest production sedan from 0-60 mph that money can currently buy (in the form of the top-spec P85D), he also debuted the semi-driverless operation features of the new car – features installed in every new car rolling out of the factory as of two weeks ago – by letting each P85D at the event drive itself around a road course set up at Hawthrone Municipal Airport.
While recent reports indicate that while Google’s car is still far from being ready for primetime, Elon Musk is confident that his company’s car will be fully autonomous by the close of this decade. Speaking with Nikkei, Tesla CEO also asserted that company’s cars will be partially self-driving in just three years. Musk went on to elaborate about the plan to get their technology from where it is today to those fairly lofty goal in such a seemingly short amount of time.
While the two companies have had a working relationship for many years now, this most recent development sees that partnership expand to an entirely new level, one which could yield “perhaps hundreds” of factories world wide designed to produce the cylindrical lithium-ion cells used in Tesla automobiles.
The Model S is also one of those rare cases where the Winding Road model is remarkably simple to configure. Take a fully loaded Model S Performance, which retails for $111,670 after a $7500 Federal tax credit, and swap out the done-to-death Multi-Coat pearlescent paint (we prefer a simple black, which also saves $1500). Next, select one of the beautiful, no-cost wood trims and the no-cost tan leather. Total price for the Winding Road Model S would be $110,170 after the Federal tax credit.
