Comparison Between Tesla Model S, Cybertruck, & Porsche Taycan

November 28th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

A comparison between the Tesla Model S, Tesla Cybertruck, and Porsche Taycan was created in an infographic shared by Twitter user Serious Callers Only. The comparison shows the difference not just in price range for these three electric vehicles, but also range and acceleration. It shows that the Cybertruck is the lowest priced of the three. That is despite its enormous size and range

Rezvani Motors Wants To Shoot Up A Cybertruck

November 28th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In two Instagram posts this week, Rezvani Motors declared its desire to shoot up a Tesla Cybertruck with an AK (I presume 47). To be honest, seeing Elon and Franz beat up the Cybertruck brings out that inner devil child who wants to wreak havoc. The Cybertruck is tough enough to handle it, for sure

Tesla Centers Are Taking Over China

November 26th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla Centers seem to be taking over China, or will be soon enough. Tesla is unstoppable in China and is converting some of its 48 showrooms into "one-stop shops" that will be known as "Tesla Centers." These Tesla Centers will serve as warehouses for deliveries, support locations for maintenance, as well as service centers and charging stations

Fear of Progress

November 25th, 2019 | by Barry A.F.

A recent article on CleanTechnica, "BBC Click: Are Electric Vehicles 'The Future Of Road Vehicles?' EV Owners: 'Duh.'" basically covered what CleanTechnica and other green energy websites have been saying for years, that EVs are superior to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in more ways than one. This is not news to informed progressives, but it is very much news to the general public

200,000 Tesla Cybertruck Pre-Orders — #NoDemand

November 25th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

It seems like everyone wants a Tesla Cybertruck. Whoever said there was no demand for this truck is completely clueless. I have seen several tweets from people saying they are getting one or have pre-ordered one. I even plan to reserve one once some personal issues are out of the way (divorce)

What A $108/kWh Battery Pack Would Mean For Tesla

November 24th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

I broke down in an earlier article why I have a hunch that the Tesla Cybertruck is going to include a battery pack that is costing Tesla around $108.26/kWh at the pack level (or better!), but I decided to keep running the math to calculate what it would mean for other Tesla products

How To Use Tesla’s Built-In Dashcam

November 24th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla, a company already known for its disruptive tech, has one under-appreciated feature that deserves mention — its built-in dashcam. Using proprietary Autopilot cameras, Tesla owners can store and record live footage at no additional cost

Big Oil’s & Big Short’s Tesla Smears Reach Far & Wide

November 24th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The goal of a serious messaging campaign is to reach as far and wide as possible, and as deeply as possible. Whereas you'd typically expect a "Big Oil" campaign to reach conservatives, Fox News viewers, and moderates easily exposed to the messaging campaign, you wouldn't expect progressives — especially noteworthy and boundary-pushing progressives — to be sucked into the messaging campaign and even repeating the talking points. Since when do progressives and Big Oil end up on the same side of an issue

300,000–500,000 Miles In A Tesla — How Does A Tesla Hold Up?

November 23rd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

It’s no secret that most owners love their Teslas, but not many can say from experience how they hold up over the really long haul. One that can is Tesloop, a shuttle service in Southern California that operates a small fleet of Models S, X, and 3. Each of Tesloop’s vehicles logs around 17,000 miles per month. Most have been on the road for well over 300,000 miles, and several are approaching the 500,000-mile mark

U.S. Senator Ed Markey Thinks Autopilot Should Be Disabled

November 23rd, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

U.S. Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts thinks Autopilot should be disabled because some people abuse it. He thinks Tesla should come up with a way to prevent people from misusing its feature, and at first glance, this could seem reasonable, until one actually does research. Let me explain

Tesla Cybertruck — Pure Logic On Wheels

November 23rd, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

"Yes, that is the way to do it. Pure logic. Form follows function. The only way to solve the aerodynamics problem of a pickup." Those were my thoughts when the Tesla Cybertruck rolled onto the stage

Tesla Model X vs. Audi e-tron — 100% Electric Drag Race

November 22nd, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

There is always a moment in Tesla vs. [fill in the blank] drag races that makes a waggish and direct point of contrast. The Tesla quietly zips off leaving the gasoline vehicle looking broken. In this case, though, it's at an all-electric, noiseless sprint between two vehicles benefiting from instant torque

Tesla Cybertruck: The Spaceship Has Landed

November 22nd, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

It's here, and it's ... VERY different. We just got some of the press updates from Tesla with details, specs, and actual photos, so let's take a look, followed by a few quick thoughts and a handful of tweets from the event
