Volkswagen Seemingly Believes A Common Tesla Myth

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

A common Tesla myth is that you have to be wealthy to own one. In a blog post on its website, Volkswagen says that it is "making attractive and affordable electric cars for everyone. E-cars for millions – not for millionaires."


Kazakhstan To Tesla: Welcome, Elon Musk & Tesla

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Kazakhstan now has its first Tesla Supercharger. This is evidence of yet another promise by Elon Musk that has been kept. During the Tesla Model Y event, while Elon Musk was talking, someone mentioned Kazakhstan in the audience and Elon said, "Actually, we have some great supporters in Kazakhstan." Elon followed that up -- after several loud cheers -- with a promise: "We will build Superchargers in Kazakhstan! You heard it right here."

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Daimler’s Crisis: Needs Something More Musk

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In an analysis by the acclaimed German news site Spiegel, the author points out Daimler's crisis and that it needs "something more Musk, please." The article, written in German, made several interesting points, but the main point is that Daimler is facing a crisis and Tesla is just one part of that crisis. The author of the article believes (and so do I) that perhaps Daimler's CEO, Ola Källenius, needs to be more like Elon Musk to help save his company


How TSLAQ Got Played In China

November 15th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

TSLAQ got played in China. It seems that the forces against Tesla are not that brilliant after all. Not only do they believe the lies they make up (never advisable), but they are apparently just gullible when it comes to anything potentially negative about Tesla. All one has to do is create a new Twitter account and tweet anti-Tesla stuff and they are in. Our favorite Tesla Gigafisherman, Chao Zhou, put this theory to the test — although, he may have done so without knowing it


Tesla Superchargers in Tunisia?

November 14th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tunisia is not only the first democratic Arab country, but it is also a place for Tesla owners and advocates. Tesla owners in Tunisia have already made Tesla road trips possible for Tesla owners living or traveling through Tunisia thanks to their initiatives to install Tesla wall chargers in several locations throughout the country. Tesla Club Tunisia has also now taken the initiative to bring Tesla's Supercharging network to Tunisia. Although they are doing this from their own funds, the goal is to make it easier for Tesla owners in Tunisia and traveling through the small country to have access to charging

November 14th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla = 3rd Most Valuable Automaker In The World

November 13th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

With the companies recent stock price rise, Tesla [TSLA] has surpassed Daimler for the #3 spot on the list of most valuable automakers in the world. This is on the heels of news of Gigafactory 4's location — Berlin — which makes the milestone especially interesting. Many may see Tesla coming to Germany as a slap in the face of some of the legacy automakers, but I see it simply as Tesla establishing another foothold as it climbs its own personal mountain. That mountain is its goal of accelerating society's transition to 100% sustainable energy


Rolling Coal Is A Stupid Stunt — And Dangerous

November 11th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Doing stupid stunts while driving can endanger not only yourself but others around you. I am talking about the wanna-be bad boy (or girl, even) who was driving the pickup truck in a video posted by Tesla Owners of Silicon Valley

Elon’s Message To Einhorn: Come Over

November 8th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla Has A Career Program For Veterans

November 7th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla, you may or may not know, has a career program for veterans who have served in the U.S. military. In a country that celebrates its veterans on television yet turns a blind eye to the needs of many vets who are struggling with all types of problems, ranging from PTSD to homelessness, Tesla is one of many American companies that are focusing on employing those who served in our military


What We Think We Know About The Tesla Cybertruck

November 7th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In his new blog, Whole Mars, Omar Qazi (aka @Tesla_Truth) gives us some of his thoughts on what we already know — or at least, think we know — about the Tesla Cybertruck. I have some catching up to do, as I have never seen Blade Runner, which seems to be the theme of Tesla's hottest new product. I am sure, as is Omar, that there are going to be a lot of new features and surprises when we do see the truck in just a couple of weeks. So, besides some of those interesting Cybertruck renders (thanks, Earl and Eva!), Omar put together some of his thoughts to help us stay patient while Tesla builds up the suspense and momentum

BMW’s Version of Scare Tactics is Elon Musk

November 5th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

BMW's version of scare tactics for its employees is Elon Musk, and I am cracking up laughing over this 2017 article by Financial Review. When I first read it, I thought it was a post-Halloween joke or something, but alas, BMW is pretty serious about putting the fear of Musk into the hearts of its workers


J.B. Straubel Meets With Tesla Owners In China

November 5th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In July, CNBC reported that J.B. Straubel was leaving the executive ranks of Tesla, and many seemed to think that meant he quit Tesla completely. The truth is, though, he is still at Tesla and recently met with the Tesla Owners Club of China
