If you live on the West Coast, the company Tesloop can give you a ride if you’re traveling around California. As you can expect, the company’s cars accrue serious mileage in a short timespan—and indeed, Tesloop says its first car, a Model S, just rolled over 300,000 miles on the odometer. Here’s how it held up.
“You park it,” the brusque, fifty-something attendant told me as he stared down a Tesla Model S. As far as I could tell, this Brooklyn parking garage had a simple protocol: drivers leave their keys with the attendant on-duty, thereby allowing them to find whatever spot fits into the Tetris-like equation that New York…
Tesla’s new Ludicrous+ mode is being attributed to a goddamn crazy fast quarter-mile run of 10.726 seconds, a new world record that lasted briefly, before another Model S P100D managed to shatter that time as well.
Have you ever wanted to live in a cartoon? One Tesla owner’s making that possible for himself, after he decided to transform his Model S into something that looks like it came out of an old-timey cartoon.
Tesla is investigating what appears to be an unusual fire that torched a Model S P85 at a Supercharger station in Shanghai. And the vehicle reportedly wasn’t charging at the time it set fire.
The German Tesla owner who sacrificed the rear bumper of his Model S to bring an unconscious man’s runaway car to a halt will get free, expedited repairs thanks to the kindness and generosity of Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk. And probably also his P.R. team.
All good things come to an end, like when Tesla broke the news that its growing global network of Supercharger stations would no longer be free. Today, Tesla has announced some specifics on how much you’ll be charged for charging, and when.
Many Tesla owners have grown tired of pulling into charging stations only to see Supercharger spots clogged by fully-juiced vehicles whose owners are too damn lazy to pull into a normal spot. So now Tesla will make those lackadaisical jerks pay with a 40 cent per minute “Supercharger Idle Fee.”
The Tesla Model S P100D was one of the fastest cars in the world, claiming a zero to 60 MPH time of just 2.5 seconds when it was introduced in August. A wireless update coming next month drops that down to 2.4 seconds. That is so unbelievably quick.
A Tesla Model S crashed into a tree in downtown Indianapolis early this morning, killing both of its passengers and bursting into flames, WTHR reports. The crash sent battery cells “firing off almost like projectiles around the rescuers,” the Indianapolis Fire Department told the news site. You can see it yourself in…
When it gave the Tesla Model S an unprecedented 103 out of 100 score last August, Consumer Reports looked like it might try to marry Elon Musk’s company and have its little electric car babies. But after a year of disappointments, trust violations and janky-ass door handles, it seems the magazine can no longer…
Let’s make one thing clear: despite what you may have in your head, Tesla’s recently updated Autopilot can not safely navigate a highway off-ramp for you – yet.
Tesla’s recent Version 8.0 upgrade to its Autopilot system is designed to improve upon the system and its relationship with the driver. Here’s your punishment should you fail to listen to the car when it tells you take back control.
Tesla has just created the fastest car you can buy—and it’s all thanks to the company’s new 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery. The Model S P100D with Ludicrous Mode is a slightly upgraded version of the Model S P90D (with a 90 kWh battery) that was released in March. But this new version can go 0-to-60 time in just 2.5…
A Tesla Model X owner just tore into his car, finding what appears to be a provision for a new triple front-facing camera. Here’s video of that tear-down, showing the vacant coax port that Electrek thinks might enable some current Teslas to be retrofit for fully-autonomous Autopilot 2.0.
Christian Roy of Quebec City has been using his Tesla Model S as a taxi for over two-and-a-half years, accumulating over 100,000 treacherous taxi miles. How did this high-tech electric car stand up to that much cab abuse?
Tesla should be used to getting called out by other automakers by now—not that it doesn’t dish out its fair share of industry trash talk from time to time. Now it’s Diarmuid O’Connell, a business development executive, who basically called out the entire field of electric vehicle competition for being boring, claiming…
It’s one of the most recognizable props in pop culture history, so it’s only fitting that the Smithsonian recently spent almost two years restoring the USS Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek TV series. The paint work alone was a painstaking process, as detailed in this new behind-the-scenes look at the…
The initial report from the National Transportation Safety Board released today revealed that the driver in the fatal Tesla Model S crash in Florida in May was driving in Autopilot over the speed limit during the time of the incident. The report has some other new details about the wreck, but not many.
