Tesla Model 3 Owner Drives 15,000 Miles For $630

August 12th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

The owner of a long range, rear wheel drive Tesla Model 3 recently took to Reddit to unpack the actual cost of charging at his home charger and at each Supercharger visited in over 13 months of ownership. He graciously shared the data for each session in a single Google spreadsheet that has all the fun details, for the data curious. Thanks to his eMotorwerks/EnelX JuiceBox 40, he was able to pull down data from each charging session that puts everything into scale

Andrew Yang Credits Elon Musk As A Major Inspiration

August 11th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Yesterday, Elon Musk made the day of another high-profile fan who has been motivated by him. Whether Elon is replying to random tweets, sharing something a fan made, or simply encouraging them as he did for me last year, Elon has always put people first, and I think that is why he is so well loved


Tesla Model 3 = 3% of US Car Sales in 1st Half of 2019

August 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In the comments of my article about the Tesla Model 3 accounting for 67% of US electric vehicle sales in the second quarter, someone asked about the electric vehicle share of the overall market. I didn't find second quarter (Q2) sales data anywhere, but I did quickly identify sales data for the first half of the year


Check Out This Wicked Awesome Tesla Model 3 Inspired By Star Wars

August 11th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

There's no doubt that Peter Litherland is a serious Star Wars fan. Growing up in Vancouver, Peter dragged his Mom to the theater to see the original Star Wars film back in 1977. Nowadays, he dresses up as a Star Wars character every year for Halloween. So, when Peter decided to get a Tesla Model 3, he had an idea


Tesla Model 3 = 67% of US Electric Vehicle Sales in 2nd Quarter

August 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I prefer comparing the Tesla Model 3 to its gasoline competitors, but it's also logical to compare the Model 3 to other electric vehicles. In the old days, these were simply called EV sales reports, but the US electric vehicle market is so unbalanced at the moment that it's hard to ignore the elephant in the room — there's the Model 3, and there's everything else

August 9th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Fully Charged's Jonny Smith was given a unique opportunity to test the Porsche Taycan's performance consistency, and was able to confirm its ability to handle repeated acceleration runs without running into thermal limits. The Taycan looks to be similar to the Tesla Model 3 Performance in this respect, but will come in at around twice the price of the Tesla

A Summer-Long Adventure In My Tesla Model 3

August 9th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

It was late April 2019 when a friend and I arrived at the Glendale Galleria in California to see the new Captain Marvel movie. While my friend took a business call I wandered into the Tesla showroom next door. It was then, for the first time, I encountered a Model 3 up close. I sat in the car and was amazed at the simplicity of Tesla's interior design. It was impressive to see a single touchscreen control nearly all of the car’s features — even the direction of airflow

August 9th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla was just granted a new series of patents that shed some light on the techniques it will use on its upcoming curved and flat solar roof tiles. These design techniques will presumably be employed as Tesla moves towards the first commercial version of these tiles, which are expected to move into mass production a bit later than the Tesla solar roof tiles that have just been installed on my roof
