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.

The Cyberlandr Is the Perfect Add-On For the Cybertruck You Don't Have

The Cyberlandr Is the Perfect Add-On For the Cybertruck You Don’t Have

Looks like someone is pressing Tesla to hurry up and start deliver the Cybertruck to customers

The Cybertruck remains for the time being just a rendering, as Tesla hasn’t been able to deliver a single Cybertruck so far. Last time we heard from Elon Musk, a small number of deliveries were slated for the end of 2021 with the bulk of cars expected to reach owners in 2022.

It looks like this delay hasn’t stopped Stream It from designing the Cyberlandr, a camper/overlander designed specifically for the Tesla Cybertruck.

Tesla's Sales Could Sky Rocket If This New GREEN Act Is Passed By The Biden Administration

Tesla’s Sales Could Sky Rocket If This New GREEN Act Is Passed By The Biden Administration

Tesla cars would be eligible for federal taxes again, thus nullifying the biggest advantage other EV makers hold over it currently

Electrification is happening whether you like it or not, but the government is trying to make the deal sweeter for you. In the States, there is a federal tax credit of $7,500 capped for 200,000 EVs for every automaker. Until now, Tesla and GM have surpassed that cap and you can’t get the credit if you purchase EVs from this brand. However, a new Bill from the Biden Administration could change that.

The latest and juiciest facts about the Cybetruck have surfaced

Some time ago, Tesla unveiled their boldly-styled Cybertruck. The futuristic-looking EV puck-up truck was and still is talked about a lot. We also know that it will be on sale sometime in late 2021.

If You Care About Your Tesla's Warranty, Don't Use It to Power Your Home

If You Care About Your Tesla’s Warranty, Don’t Use It to Power Your Home

A Tesla owner learned this the hard way and got the battery replaced at his own cost

The winter storm wasn’t been kind to the Texans with basic services like power and water taking a big hit. A lot of good Samaritans have come to the rescue, including Ford, who had asked the dealerships to loan out the F-150 trucks with Pro Power onboard generators to people without power at home. In such dire situations, one would assume that using EVs as a stationary power source would also be a good idea, but as it turns out, it’s not the case with Tesla.

As pointed out by ‘Green’ on Twitter, using your Tesla as a power generator will void its warranty. If you already have, well, don’t talk about it on social media.

The Cheap Tesla Might Be Called The Model 2 And Cost Just $18,000!

There are some speculations that it could arrive as early as 2022

Since Elon Musk announced a new affordable Tesla model at the 2020 Battery Day, the internet has been buzzing about it, trying to unearth every detail possible.

One – it could arrive sooner than expected. And, two – it will cost not $25,000; but $18,000!

More like a warning shot wrapped as a prediction of sorts

Tesla can be credited for igniting this full-on electric car movement we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of years, with Dieselgate acting as a catalyzer for Volkswagen AG but also for other German brands, BMW included.

Well-established carmakers have been on a spending spree trying to develop electric powertrains and EVs and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse believes they will soon catch up with Tesla and even get ahead of it.

Apparently It Costs A Fortune To Charge a Tesla In Texas Right Now

Apparently It Costs A Fortune To Charge a Tesla In Texas Right Now

The biggest advantage of owing an electric vehicle just went down the drain

The winter snow in Texas left people dead in their tracks. It has impacted even basic services like power and water and has left the Lone Star state crippled. People there are facing electricity bills as high as $17,000, which shows what a massive impact the storm has had on the day-to-day lives of the residents. The rocketed prices have affected EV owners, too, as Oilprice.com reports that charging a Tesla cost the owners around $900, which is almost 50 times more than how much it generally costs!

New Render Envisions The Mythical $25,000 Tesla - Is This The Model H?

We would be more than happy if the affordable Tesla looked like this

At the 2020 Tesla Battery Day event, Musk announced that the company will build a $25,000 ‘affordable’ EV. This came as a surprise because Musk had mentioned in the past that the company will not build an inexpensive vehicle. There are no specific details about the car yet, not even the body style, but it is expected to be a hatch.

An artist who goes by the handle ‘KDesign AG’ has rendered the $25,000 EV and uploaded it on Behance. The artist calls it the Model H, and honestly, it looks super classy.

Tesla Should Definitely Build a Halo-Inspired Cybertruck Warthog

We’d be to-the-moon excited if this ends up happening

Don’t look now, but a collaboration between Halo and Tesla could be more than just a pipe dream. The potential partnership received a shot in the arm after Microsoft Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter to respond to Tesla big boss Elon Musk admitting that Halo is the only console game he’s ever played.

Tesla Lost More Than $1,700 For Every Car Delivered In 2020

Tesla Lost More Than $1,700 For Every Car Delivered In 2020

If it wasn’t for regulatory credits, Tesla would have posted a huge loss in 2020

Automakers are in business to make money. This statement holds true for everyone from Mercedes-AMG to Ford, Chevy, and even Tesla. However, everything isn’t always peachy in the automotive economy, and today we’re here to talk about how Tesla is a prime example of that. To make a long story short, Tesla would have posted a major loss – to the tune of more than $800 million – if it wasn’t for a massive amount of regulatory credits. 2020 might have worked out for Tesla on paper, but its current business model won’t keep it from going under in the long run. How do I know? Well, Telsa actually lost $1,759 for every car it delivered in 2020.

The New Tesla Model S' Yoke-Like Half Steering Wheel Probably Isn't Going To Happen

The New Tesla Model S’ Yoke-Like Half Steering Wheel Probably Isn’t Going To Happen

Admittedly, the yoke is a nice trick but do not hold your breath on seeing it in production

Last week’s biggest news came from yours truly Tesla, who announced that the Model S and X will be going under the scalpel for much-needed nip and tuck. The highlight of said nip and tuck was the yoke-style steering wheel which is certainly an enticing feature for Tesla die-hards and at the same time, something that might not see fruition.

Delays are slowly but surely becoming a part of Tesla’s business model

Tesla had another moment of internet glory and hype as the Interwebs were filled with interior renders of the revised Model S and Model X. Specifically, it was the yoke-style steering wheel that caught everyone’s attention, even though it might not make it into production.

2021 Tesla Model S Convertible By Ares Design

2021 Tesla Model S Convertible By Ares Design

This Tesla Model S goes for a chop-chop and loses its roof and the rear doors

Custom-made electric vehicles are a trend that’s slowly picking up. They aren’t as popular as internal combustion-engined cars for now since there aren’t a lot of moving parts in EVs that you can play around with. We’ve seen some tuners crack the system to unleash more power for a much cheaper price than the company offers. Apart from playing with the mechanicals, some aftermarket companies have worked on the body of EVs as well. From equipping it body kits and turning them into station wagons, we’ve seen it all already.

Now, however, a company called Ares Designs has transformed a Tesla Model S into a convertible. This isn’t the first time we’re seeing a convertible Tesla, but it is arguably the cleanest one we’ve seen.

Former PSA Chairman Says Tesla's Valuation Makes No Sense

Former PSA Chairman Says Tesla’s Valuation Makes No Sense

According to Louis Gallois, “Overvaluations like that of Tesla make no sense.”

Tesla is a hot company with its own, growing community of fanboys that are relentless in sharing their beliefs. In some respect, it’s understandable – some of the world’s largest automakers could learn a thing or two from Tesla. But can the company continue as it has? As reported by pymnts.com, Tesla’s market value just hit $820 billion on January 8, 2021, pushing the company into the top 5. This puts the company under Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Alphabet. This means Tesla has seen a 700-percent growth in market value over the last year, and Wedbush analyst – Daniel Ives – saying Tesla could become a $2 trillion company within two years. Is it sustainable and how is it possible?

The Tesla Model S and Model X Might Get Refreshed After All

The Tesla Model S and Model X Might Get Refreshed After All

Both these models have been long in the tooth and a refresh could give the sales volume a boost

While Tesla keeps rolling out over-the-air updates frequently, it has never really refreshed the Model S and the Model X. The Model 3 is an exception, but even that didn’t come with any major changes. There have been no real facelifts so far, no new generations; just software updates. It didn’t matter until now because none of its products had real competition, but it looks like times are changing and Tesla is feeling the heat.

According to Electrek, Tesla is planning to refresh the Model S and the Model X after all. The production lines for these two models have been shut down longer than expected, thus hinting at a design refresh. High time!

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.
