Tesla

Tesla’s journey started back in 2003. The Palo Alto-based company is the top-rated EV company in the world today and is arguably the biggest EV player right now. The Musk-led company fought all the odds and did not get steamrolled by the other automakers. Tesla wanted a SEXY range of products, only for Ford to ruin the party, thus making them settle for a S3XY range. The American company has four mainstream products currently – the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y. Each of the products is doing immensely well in the market. Tesla will soon be coming out with a pickup truck and that has been the talking point of the industry. Tesla has a very strong fan following, and the same is seen even in social media. A recent report revealed that Tesla Pickup is the most talked-about truck on Twitter. The company seems to be unstoppable right now and it looks to have a bright future moving forward.

This Modified Tesla Model S Plaid Just Hit 216 MPH

This Modified Tesla Model S Plaid Just Hit 216 MPH

It’s not stock, but it’s still a Model S that can do more than 200 mph!

When Tesla unveiled the Model S Plaid in 2021 it promised it will go from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds and will hit a top speed of over 200 mph. But many tests have revealed that the Model S Plaid can only hit 269 km/h (167.14 mph). Then, in early 2022, Tesla announced the Track Mode for the Model S Plaid that pushed the top speed to 175 mph. Which again is not 200 mph. We are not sure what exactly is preventing Tesla from actually offering this kind of performance figure, but the fact is that it doesn’t. However, it seems that the trick to go over 200 mph is to remove software limitations.

Tesla's Conquest of Europe May Fall Short

Tesla’s Conquest of Europe May Fall Short

Supply chain issues plague Tesla’s productivity, not only in Germany, but also in Texas. What does it mean for the company?

Regardless of what happens in the future, Tesla will go down in history as the company that started the transition from internal combustion engines to electricity. While the American EV maker has been quite open-minded and willing to share its know-how with other car companies, it seems the current state of the global economy has taken its toll on Tesla’s production output. With other car makers now well into the EV scene, this may be a problem for Tesla, especially in Europe where most of its competitors are based.

The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022

If you’re in the market for an electric family car, then this is the list you need to check out

As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.

Rendering: An Off-Road Tesla Cybertruck With the Angles to go Anywhere

Rendering: An Off-Road Tesla Cybertruck With the Angles to go Anywhere

The Tesla Cybertruck is yet to go on sale, but a hardcore, off-road version has already been envisioned

The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated yet controversial vehicles in recent times. This is mainly due to the fact that the all-electric pickup truck from Tesla was unveiled back in 2019 and despite numerous preorders, still hasn’t seen the light of day. While Elon Musk assures us that the Cybertruck will go on sale in 2023, Tesla may have dropped the ball since other carmakers have, not only brought it up, but beat Tesla to the EV pickup truck game, a case in point being the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and the GMC Hummer EV.

Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022

Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022

Here’s a list of the top 10 electric cars that offer the longest range in the U.S.

EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.

An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market

An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market

This could be really good for Ford, and really bad for Tesla

One of the main problems with Electric cars is that they are incredibly expensive to buy up front. Sometimes the sticker price can be up to $14,000-$15,000 more than their gasoline-powered cousin. However, the gap in price between these two kinds of automobiles is closing, and Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, thinks it will eventually come to a head.

2022 Tesla Model X - Price, Performance And Photos

This latest update brings much-needed performance, interior, and tech upgrades to Tesla’s full-size Crossover SUV

This is the 2022 Tesla Model X. Ever since the Model X first went on sale back in 2016, it has proved to be an immensely successful vehicle for Tesla. After nearly six years on the block and countless updates, the Californian EV maker finally decided to give its full-size SUV a substantial makeover. Tesla recently facelifted its EV Crossover and this time around, the Model X has also gotten the full Plaid treatment.

In fact, the X Plaid shares its powertrain with the S Plaid and both Plaids have been tearing up drag strips this past year. However, beyond all the hype, what changes has Tesla made to keep the Model X relevant against the growing crop of EVs in the Crossover space? Well, let’s find out.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y have locked horns, and here’s how they fare against each another

If there is one segment that’s gathering steam quicker than mid-sized crossovers, that would probably be the EV crossover and American automakers are leading the charge in this space with two of the hottest contenders, i.e., the Tesla Model Y and the Ford Mustang Mach E. Does the Mustang Mach-E pack enough to dethrone Tesla’s reign? Here are eight reasons that tip the scales in favor of the Mach-E and four reasons that make a case for the Model Y.

Say Hello to The Tesla ’Model T’, The Most Ridiculous Model 3 You’ll Ever See

Just in terms of sheer presence, the Model T trumps the Cybertruck by a mile

Almost anything with Tesla stamped on it is hot these days, and the EV auto giant’s sedan, the Model 3 is no exception. But, you know what’s even hotter? Well, a Model 3 with Tank tracks of course, which is exactly what The Real Life Guys from Germany has done.

Clearly, these folks are into the category of doing some pretty crazy stuff on their channel, I mean they’ve done everything from putting together a homemade submarine to a bathtub with a rocket. This Model 3 with tank tracks follows that same theme.

With Elon Musk’s $44 billion take over of Twitter, I wonder what’s in store next for the likes of Tesla. Is a limited-run Twitter Edition Tesla Model S a possibility? Well, digital artist musartwork has rendered a Model S clad in Twitter blue sitting low on white Rotiform rims. Will such a car have Twitter integrated into the Model S’ infotainment system or a dedicated Tweet button on the Yoke? I don’t know that, this is pure speculation. But never say never. This is Elon Musk we’re talking about here. The sky is pretty much the limit.

Should Tesla Spin-Off 'PLAID' As Their Very Own High-Performance Sub-Brand?

Should Tesla Spin-Off ’PLAID’ As Their Very Own High-Performance Sub-Brand?

Mercedes has AMG, BMW has the M Division, Audi has RS and Cadillac has V. But what about Tesla?

Right from the onset, Tesla’s have always been pretty quick cars. The first-gen Roadster seems like a spec from the distant past, but it was nice to see Musk, drive up on stage in one, at the recently held ’Giga Rodeo’. Fast forward to today and the current crop of Tesla’s has turned things up to a eleven, especially when you consider cars like the Model S Plaid and the recently unveiled Model X Plaid.

EV vs Superbike Drag Race: Tesla Model S Plaid vs Suzuki Hayabusa vs Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R

Watch a Tesla Model S Plaid take on a Suzuki Hayabusa and a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R in a series of drag and roll races

The good folks at Edmunds staged a race sometime last year and we pulled it out of their stash. The race sees a Tesla Model S Plaid take on two superbikes, one being the new 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa, and the other, a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. Usually, you’d expect the four-wheeler to be an underdog in such situations. But, knowing the Plaid’s prowess, can it really be called the underdog here?

Lucid Air And Tesla Model S Plaid Redefine Speed By Racing Against Gravity And A BMW E39 M5

The Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air prove high-performance EVs are faster than gravity

High-performance EVs are here and they are very fast. The Tesla Model S Plaid and, now, the Lucid Air are both capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in the two-second range, and both pack over 1,000 horsepower. To get an idea of just how fast cars have become, both EVs will square off against the fastest sedan from 20 years go – the BMW M5 E39 – in a quarter-mile drag race with a twist, after which both EVs will race against…a person falling from an airplane.

The Hate Against Tesla Cars Is Real, And Here's Yet Another Scary Road-Rage Video To Prove It!

The Hate Against Tesla Cars Is Real, And Here’s Yet Another Scary Road-Rage Video To Prove It!

Rage Against The Machine: "Killing In The Name" of driving a Tesla!

There are a lot of people who are still warming up to the idea of EVs. But, there are also people who outright hate them. So much so that they attack the silent cars. This, for some reason, is especially true for Tesla the most. We’ve seen loads of incidents in the past wherein Tesla cars are attacked in the parking lots, where superchargers are blocked and destroyed, and verbal abuses to the owners driving them. But, another video has now come to light that tops it all and might be the scariest incident to date. A Tesla Model 3 owner was recently a victim of road rage that lasted 20 minutes, and reportedly, didn’t get any help from the cops either.

This Drag Race Spectacle Is Special Because It's Not Everyday You Get To See A Brabus Build Hit The Drag Strip

This Drag Race Spectacle Is Special Because It’s Not Everyday You Get To See A Brabus Build Hit The Drag Strip

The Brabus 850, based on the AMG GLE 63, took on the Lamborghini Urus and the Tesla Model X

Brabus is known for its mighty powerful builds. They are unlike any other aftermarket companies and tuners, and are one of the most expensive ones out there. So, when the good folks at ‘Carwow’ brought a Brabus creation to the race strip for some fun, it piqued our interest. Called the Brabus 850, it was a jacked-up Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 with oodles of performance upgrades. It went up against a Lamborghini Urus and a Tesla Model X Performance. On paper, it is the most powerful of the lot. But, was it the same in the real world as well?

What is the Cheapest Tesla?

Tesla’s cheapest offering is the Model 3 which retails from $38,990. The car comes with a very clean cabin with almost no buttons at all, a 15-inch touchscreen that dominates the center console, and a spacious cabin overall. The standard range trim offers you 220 miles on a full charge, whereas the Long Range offers 310 miles on a single charge. The latter trim takes 5.1 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from a standstill before losing breath at 140 mph.

What is the Sportiest Tesla?

Tesla has a spectacular range of products, but the Roadster is clearly the sportiest product from the stable. It has been in news ever since its launch back in 2007. The Roadster boasts some ridiculous figures, such as 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, a top speed of 250 mph, and can cover 620 miles on a single charge. Interestingly, Musk sent his Roadster in outer space as part of the Space X project. In other news, Musk also said that the car will come with rocket thrusters. If this is not sporty, I don’t know what is.

What is the Most Popular Tesla?

The Model 3 is the most popular Tesla. The American startup sold over 10,000 examples of it in April 2019. It is also the cheapest model in the company’s range.

What is the Most Expensive Tesla?

Tesla has redefined the EV segment with not just quality electric products that are good for a daily commute, but are also a hoot and a half to drive. However, this comes at a price. The company’s Model S Performance retails at $90,115, whereas the Model S Performance trim is priced at $95,115. TheModel X Performance is the fastest production SUV, as it takes just 2.7 seconds to touch 60 mph from a standstill. It has also attained the highest safety ratings ever.

What is the Fastest Tesla?

The Model S P100D in Ludicrous Model is the fastest mainstream vehicle from the stable when it goes all guns blazing. The car takes merely 2.4 seconds to reach the 60 mph mark and can go all way up to 163 mph. It comes with an all-wheel-drive system and can go up to 340 miles on a single charge. The Model S takes just 15 min to replenish the battery with enough energy to cover 130 miles.

Are Tesla Cars Reliable?

Despite boasting some amazing crash test ratings, which generally instils a certain amount of faith in the brand, Tesla is actually not known for its long term reliability. The company offers four years warranty on the car and eight years on the battery, but was ranked 27th out of 29 automakers by Consumer Reports in 2018. Tesla has a habit of changing the hardware and the software on a frequent basis and that fluctuates the reliability to a large extent.
