When Tesla Motors finally reveals its upcoming affordable electric sedan, the Model 3, at the end of next month, don’t expect to see too much. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been hedging back on the promise of the Model 3's reveal, confirming that we’ll see “the first pictures” but probably not much else.
Everyone in Chicago, please, stop what you’re doing right now. There’s an emergency, and we need everybody’s help. A man’s Tesla Model X has been shat upon, and we must help find this rampaging car-shitter, who is still at large. At least, that’s what this Craigslist ad tells us.
Last night we got confirmation that electric automaker Tesla Motors was developing two new vehicles, rumored to be called the “Model 3" and “Model Y” to slot between the current Model S and Model X. S.3.X.Y.
Tesla Motors, hot off of beginning deliveries for its new Model X SUV, has now confirmed it’s working on not one, but two ‘affordable’ electric vehicles which it hopes to sell for around $30,000. Following the current Model S and Model X, Tesla plans to introduce a Model 3 and Model Y. S3XY.

Survey data collected by Plug-In America from current early-model Tesla Model S owners has predicted that up to two-thirds of early model electric-drive units may fail by 60,000 miles. If their predictions are even remotely accurate, that’s bad news.
“Would you like to come along and set another Cannonball Record with us?”
Records, as they say, are meant to be broken. I once blitzed across the country in 31 hours and 4 minutes. Ed Bolian beat that run. Earlier this year Carl Reese, Deena Mastracci and a team of their friends set an EV Cannonball record in a Tesla Model S. I have to say then when Team Polizei raced across the U.S. in…
You may remember Carl Reese and Deena Mastracci, two members of the team who drove from Los Angeles to New York in a record 58 hours and 54 minutes in April. You may also have heard of Alex Roy, no stranger to records himself and someone who’s been very interested in autonomous driving lately. Those worlds just…
When will fully Autonomous Driving become a reality? That’s the trillion dollar question. It may come down to which company is willing to offer it first, but there are some very clear hurdles to that.
The “Falcon Wing” rear doors on the Tesla Model X are pretty sweet. Everyone is amazed they actually made it to the production car. But what happens when you’re in a tight parking space with only a few inches of room?
