Shortly after the unveiling of Tesla’s Model 3 earlier this month, Elon Musk took to Twitter in a storm of information about the new car, mentioning that the target drag coefficient was 0.21. If that target makes it to production, it would make the Model 3 the most aerodynamic high-volume production car ever made.…
As Elon Musk mentioned the night he revealed the “affordable” Model 3 earlier this month, Tesla’s mission has been a path towards marketing attractive, affordable electric vehicles to the masses. At a recent talk in Norway, CEO Elon Musk hinted that a model even more affordable than the $35,000 Model 3 is already in…
When the Tesla Model S launched, we called it the world’s most expensive beta test, since the copious quality issues made early adopters seem like guinea pigs. It’s been a few years, and while the fit and finish of the Model S has vastly improved, the new Model X seems to still have a long way to go.
Tesla’s online configurator for the Model X went live today, and the automaker hid an additional Easter egg in their kid-haulin’ egg on wheels: a modest power and price bump for the base model.
We’ve been expecting Tesla to reveal the facelifted Model S sometime this month, perhaps even this week, and well, this looks like it! And its new nose looks like it was grafted on from the Model X.
Here we are. After years of hype and rumors, Tesla has revealed the entry-level Tesla Model 3: the sleek, high-performance electric sedan for the masses. Or so Elon Musk hopes.
Tesla is showing the world its all-new Model 3 this Thursday—a sub $35,000 all-electric sedan the company hopes will bring electric vehicles to the mainstream. The introduction of such an affordable vehicle with mass appeal might also see Tesla shift the position of its existing lineup. Basically, if you’re going to…
An unnamed source that has previously “provided reliable information” to the website Electrek has allegedly leaked some information and tech specs on the eagerly-awaited Tesla Model 3, set to be unveiled tomorrow. Since we, collectively, have the patience of a toddler, here’s what was said.
Cars and Coffee is typically so boring that going there just to look at cars quickly loses its appeal after about thirty seconds of hanging around a parking lot where you can admire ten of the exact same Audi S4s only so much. If something you never see—like a McLaren P1—isn’t at the event, there’s not much of a…
Now that the new Tesla Model X electric SUV is finally being delivered to customers it’s time to see just exactly what kind of performance we can expect. Luckily for us, Tesla followed up the insanely powerful Ludicrous mode Model S P90D with an equally Ludicrous Model X P90D, and somebody raced them.
Despite losing money last quarter, Tesla shares are still up after their earnings report. Why? Because the company is beating estimates on how many cars it will be able to produce this year.
A Tesla spokesperson confirmed today that the official price for the all-electric affordable Tesla Model 3 sedan will be $35,000 before incentives, and way cheaper with incentives when it goes on sale. That’s something to get excited about, sure—if we didn’t already know all of this months ago.
Owning your own car company has a lot of little-considered benefits: all the slightly-damaged car seats you want for napping, easy access to stacks of tires to build forts, and the ability to cancel any customer’s order just because you don’t like them. Guess which one Elon Musk just took advantage of?
If you want to buy a Tesla that doesn’t have airbags filled with moist, succulent ground beef or a dash covered in the finest Nova Scotia salmon, you’re in luck, because the Tesla Model X will be available in vegan-friendly trim. PETA is claiming this is in response to them, but Tesla disagrees.
When Tesla Motors announced fourth quarter sales figures for 2015, many were surprised to see only 208 of the brand new Model X all-electric crossovers were delivered to customers. The number seems low, but Tesla promises the Model X release is a matter of quality, not quantity.
The Tesla Model X comes with a handful of dubiously-useful special modes, but here’s one that exists just for fun.
The 2016 Tesla Model X costs $80,000 before you start adding options or tax breaks. But you’d only know that if you were on “the list” to buy one of the first ones. Now you just want to see it because you can’t, right?
The first Tesla Model X full-electric SUVs have hit the road this week, and we got a a little time to shake it down all the way to 80 MPH in the company parking lot.
The Tesla Model X has been teased in concept form for years, but as the first six vehicles finally make their way into the hands of owners tonight we’ve got more info on Falcon Doors, mono-post seats, and the SUV’s bioweapon defense mode.
