Where In The World Is It Cheapest To Charge A Tesla? (Infographic)

June 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The rates utilities charge for electricity vary wildly across different parts of the world, just as gas prices do. However, electric vehicles are cheaper to operate on a per-mile basis just about everywhere, thanks to the electric motor’s far greater efficiency, and to the fact that regions with high electricity prices also tend to have high gas prices. A very rough rule of thumb is that driving an EV should cost about a third of what driving a comparable legacy vehicle does


Betting Against Tesla Is Betting Against Yourself

June 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

To the average American, Tesla is just another topic in the news alongside China, Trump, the weather, terrorism, national disasters, local sports, and celebrity gossip.

30 Reasons To Buy An Electric Car … Today!

June 16th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

My increasingly good friend Paul Fosse wrote an article yesterday giving 5 reasons to buy a Tesla before July 1. At the end of the article, he linked to a 2016 article of mine that I had forgotten about. It's a simple listicle but it's actually one of my favorite articles. So, thanks to Paul, I'm reposting it today. In 2016, it was titled, "30 Reasons Your Next Car Should Be Electric." At this point in time, I think it's more appropriate to say that you should buy that car today, not wait any longer. Hopefully you'll agree after reading through this list

June 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

A month ago, Tesla revealed several secrets regarding the new chip the Silicon Valley company has designed for full self-driving capability. Nonetheless, some of the people making that presentation may have failed to take into account that not everyone is fully literate in microprocessor design and engineering. I don't fall into that category either, but I have been a computer enthusiast for quite some time and know a few things that might help me pick out some of the highlights, point out why they are so exciting, and further communicate how Tesla really is way ahead of the competition
