Earlier this week, before Tesla went crazy forecasting a manufacturing capacity of 500,000 cars by 2018, the automaker updated its Model S with a new face and some tweaks to the battery options, including a new 75 kWh option. Well it turns out both the new 70 and 75 kWh options will be the same, with the the former…
Thanks to an update on the California Air Resource Board’s website, its been revealed (and confirmed) that Tesla will be adding a new 75 kWh battery pack option to the Model S lineup, which was supposed to be announced later this week.
Joe Biden, America’s Bitchin’ Vice President, was forced to beg for absolution from the Pope at the Vatican last night after betting on a Cadillac CTS-V in a drag race against a Tesla Model S. He also lost $10.
Does the genius of Elon Musk know no bounds??????????????????????????
As a society full of innovation and new technology, we give a lot of attention to Tesla Motors and its semi-autonomous features. But even for owners, not all of those features come free—permanently, that is. According to some recent Tesla forum posts, it looks as if the company now offers free trials for fancier perks.
The first time we got behind the wheel of a Tesla Model S with Autopilot we called it “awesome and creepy.” This 70-year-old lady definitely agrees— well, with that second part at least. Prepare yourselves for phrases like “Oh dear Jesus!”
Tesla claims that its Model X crossover has the largest windshield of any production car. It’s also been a developmental nightmare that was delayed again and again for issues with suppliers and engineering those damn Falcon doors. Now it may have a problem with light ghosting in the big fancy windshield causing…
Elon Musk’s campaign to eliminate false grilles has won a very important battle, on the very face of their flagship product: the newly-facelifted Tesla Model S will have a false-grille-less front, very similar to the Tesla Model X. Just like we thought it would.
Tesla has already shown us some sweet Easter Eggs hidden in the software of the Model S. But now there’s a new one, and if you’re a Mario Kart fan, you’ll love it.
Tesla has now introduced two new models since the Model S hit the stage back in 2012, leaving the styling of the sedan looking slightly out of place in the electric automaker’s lineup. A new report from RoadShow suggests that the Model S is about to get a styling refresh, and maybe even a price hike.
Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke of establishing a European manufacturing facility while attending a Tesla owners event in France. Well the people of France were listening, and it’s now reported that the government has offered the electric automaker a re-purposed nuclear power facility as a potential site…
As far as autonomous driving goes, it’s still a bit of a freaky concept for most of us—whether we can trust the cars to detect objects, stay in their lanes and, oh, not kill us. In a test of the autopilot sensors on the Tesla Model S that included things from stuffed animals to kids, a YouTube user found some odd…
Everyone knows the Tesla Model S can hold its own on a drag strip with its uncanny ability to humble unprepared drivers who face off against it with a blast of instant electric torque. Now with the Electric GT World Series, we’ll finally get to see how the car runs wheel-to-wheel on a road course.
Electric cars are only as clean as the electric grid they run off of, and in Singapore, that means one owner’s Tesla Model S is getting fined for producing too much CO2. Here’s how they came to this figure for what is ostensibly a zero-emissions vehicle.
What you’re really paying for when you buy an electric car like the Tesla Model S isn’t the savings on fuel, or even the whisper quiet ride. You’re paying for the ability to be smug and self-righteous to drivers in gas-powered cars, and now even little kids can start making others feel guilty about driving a…
Tesla recently added a feature to its Model S allowing users to summon their car like an obedient dog, and now the Apple Watch is on board too. Other than being ridiculously cool, the process essentially works like summoning with a key fob.
The weird thing about the road trip of the future is that it’s much more like the road trips we used to take in our past than anything else. My coworkers and I just did 1400-odd miles in an electric Tesla Model S that could also drive itself. It wasn’t just the trip of the future. It was the way things used to be, too.
Autonomous cars are just now barely starting to end up on our roads, in limited numbers and in limited ways. For now. We’re in an interesting transitional period, and there’s still lots of things we have to figure out. I think I have an idea that could help, and it’s as simple as a dumb old light.
The other night, I walked my car like a dog. Well, it wasn’t my car. It was Tesla’s own Model S. Here’s how it works.
