5 Tips For Owning A Tesla Without A Home Charger

January 2nd, 2020 | by Matt Pressman

Most Tesla owners have a home charger (or NEMA 14-50 outlet) installed in their garage before taking delivery of their Model S, 3, or X. But not everyone lives in a house with a garage. Some new Tesla owners live in an apartment building or condo that might not (yet) have any EV charging. Should this prevent you from buying a Tesla


How Should We Deal With “ICE-ing Superchargers?”

December 18th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

How should we deal with ICE-ing Superchargers? For those who don't understand, ICE-ing a Supercharger means that someone in a non-Tesla vehicle (a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, or ICE) is parking in the spot where the Tesla parks to supercharge the vehicle. This is the same thing as parking at a pump at a gas station but not using that pump. unfortunately, some people do this to Tesla Superchargers on purpose

November 28th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

If you live on planet Earth, you surely know that holiday weekends can generate an enormous amount of traffic. Thanksgiving weekend is probably the worst in the United States. Historically, Tesla drivers on certain high-volume routes, especially in California (where Teslas are most abundant), have faced some struggles while stopping to Supercharge before continuing on to grandma's house (actual lines, and sometimes long ones)


Tesla Model 3 V3 Supercharging Times: 2% To 100% State of Charge (Video)

November 18th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

VegasModel3 posted a video that answers the most asked EV question I've encountered. Although, the answer to this question is particular to the Tesla Model 3. It won't answer the question for all EVs. That question is typically the beginning question before someone delves further into the world of electric cars


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."


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


Lafayette, Louisiana To Get A New Tesla Supercharger

October 24th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Lafayette will soon join the ranks of Tesla-friendly cities like its fellow cities of Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, and Alexandria. Back in May, permits were filed for electrical lines to be installed for a proposed Tesla Supercharger over at the Stirling Center on Louisiana Avenue just off of I-10. The Stirling Center would be ideal since it's a shopping center with plenty of restaurants and stores for Tesla owners traveling through to explore and take a break at

October 14th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

At first, people tend to see new technologies as updated versions of older ones. Just as early TV shows consisted of filmed radio shows or stage plays, and early websites resembled the pages of low-budget magazines, many in the mainstream media still believe that vehicle electrification will mean swapping gas pumps for charging stations


Future Gas Stations Will Not Have Gas

October 12th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The year was 1908, the world's first mass-produced affordable automobile drove onto comically scarce streets. The transition from horse-driven carriages to gas-powered autos was officially beginning. After some back and forth, electric and steam-powered options didn't make it into the mainstream. In hindsight, gasoline probably wasn't the best option for the environment, but we're (finally) working on fixing that now

Hurricane Dorian was all over the news last week. For good reason. Needless to say, having a Tesla in a hurricane is different than having a gasoline-powered car. There are (at least) six good reasons why having a Tesla is better in a hurricane. That said, there are some things you should be aware of, as a Tesla owner, before a hurricane arrives

One of the largest obstacles standing in the way of widespread electric vehicle adoption is the often daunting setup required to outfit customers who live in apartments with adequate charging infrastructure.

August 29th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

A friend of mine reached out to me with an incredible story from his friend, Tonto. Tonto went on a summer road trip to the Grand Canyon as a way to celebrate America. His trip was his own way of celebrating our freedom, and what is a better way of doing this than going on the road trip in his American-made Tesla Model
