In Motorweek’s most recent segment the iconic television car show tests the 763 hp 2016 Tesla Model S with Ludicrous Mode, twin motors and all-wheel drive.
Yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show General Motors revealed is 200-mile per charge 2017 Chevy Bolt EV.
In particular, how do we reconcile this with the EPA’s estimates of the social cost of carbon that are in the range of $40/ton?
In all fairness to Tesla Motors, let us first mention that the company has a remarkable 8 year warranty coverage on the drivetrain. It protects new and used Model S owners.
But first of all, let me mention that yesterday Porsche announced that it gave green light to move its 4-door sedan, currently called the Mission E from a concept to a production.
I tested almost all EVs and plug-in hybrids in my market and talked to so many people with different hybrids, plug-in hybrids etc... and yes they are garbage!
The general word on the street is that Porsche's Mission E can't immediately pose challenge to Tesla's Model S. All manufacturers will be playing catch up for years to come.
Tesla continues to have its bright points. The vehicles are simply amazing. They are also amazingly expensive.
Musk also agreed with the question that the following functionality would be available from the update: lane change, highway auto-steer and the ability to summon the car via the phone app.
With history as the guide, we know the inherent problems with the gullwing doors of yesteryear.
The first Tesla Model X “Signature Series” rolls off the assembly lines as Tesla has scheduled a launch event today on September 29 of 2015.
