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. They have their morning coffee, rush to work, and glance at the news on their phones. Actually, many Americans work rotating shifts. Those shifts may begin at 9:00 PM at night -- and they may not have time to catch up on the news. Unless someone is exposed to Tesla via a customer, fan, or shareholder, they will often only know from what they hear or see in the news

Illusions

Illusions are realities for those who have them. When you try to convince those having them that they are illusions, they try to convince you that they are the realists


Tesla To Make Its Own Battery Cells? HyperChange CEO Advances Bold Theory

June 14th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

As reported here and here, there was a lot of information presented at the 2019 Tesla annual shareholder meeting. And although there were a lot of small details covered and hints given about the future, there wasn't any earth-shattering news. In my summary, I noted they didn't "let the cat out of the bag." But I didn't really know what the cat was, so I didn't comment


Move Over, Tony Stark — Elon Musk Admits To James Bond Villain Side Project … Or Something Like That

June 12th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

He may or may not have been digging around in his pocket to find his bowtie, but even without it, Elon Musk's jacket started looking a bit more like a Tuxedo when a shareholder from the audience dropped the last question of the day. The shareholder in question asked if Tesla had any plans to make an aquatic car, and Musk started giggling as if he had been waiting for this exact question all day

June 11th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

SpaceX and Tesla are more than just companies. They are a revolution of the status quo and an inspiration for millions of people. So, when these two companies come to together for a project, the result cannot be anything other than epic. That is one way to describe the birth of Starman, who was launched into space in Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster as the payload of the very first Falcon Heavy. That means that Starman is now exploring the solar system — or is he


The Tesla Twittersphere — What Is Weird About Wanting To Have A Better Future?

June 11th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Critics of Tesla like to call anyone who likes what Tesla is doing, who buys its products, or who invests in the company "fanboys" and "fangirls," often accompanied by a negative adjective or five. I only know a few fans on Twitter who actually send unfunny or weird texts. The rest are normal people and actually pretty hilarious

The First Official Race-Ready Tesla (VIDEO)

June 7th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Most Model S owners already know that Tesla makes a version of the car with ludicrous speed — something that's akin to a race car. But could this all-electric production car, a family sedan no less, actually turn up in an official race approved by the International Automobile Federation (FIA)
