Tesla Recalibrates Model 3 Pricing & Adds RWD Option For Aussie Customers

Published on July 17th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla just rolled out a series of updates to the Model 3 configurator that lowered prices across the board in many countries. The new change was accompanied by a flip flop on the base color of all of Tesla's vehicles — from black to "pearl white." It is now an extra $750 to add black but no extra charge to choose white.

Oceans Need Geoengineering, Not The Atmosphere

Published on July 17th, 2019 | by Michael Barnard

Solar geoengineering is a bandaid on the symptoms, not a cure for the causes.

How Did A Nissan LEAF Beat A Tesla Model S In A Race?

Published on July 16th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

The Nissan LEAF certainly doesn't have a reputation as a serious performance car. With far less power than any Tesla, "semi-independent" rear suspension like you'd find under a Chevy Cavalier, and many similarities with the Versa, the LEAF is widely regarded as an economy car, not a luxury or sports car. It certainly isn't seen as a real competitor to a Tesla, even an older Model ... Read More
