Tesla is one of the most well known names in the modern day automotive industry. It is the leading automotive manufacturer for battery powered cars. Yes, that means zero gasoline usage. It is without question that the evil genius behind this company, Elon Musk, has done anything except the abnormal. Their brand released their first car in 2008 and today in 2020 it is one of the most popular and practical options you can get on the market. Tesla’s have entered the market from the top down as they are quickly on their way to meet the $20,000 to $30,000 price mark, but their most popular models are $35,000 and above.

The brand is most noted by their quirky leader, their long range capabilities under one singular charge, their surprising performance aspects, and their cutting edge technology. Currently, the Model S holds the record for the longest range on one charge which was 370 miles, but Elon claims 400 miles is coming soon and also claims that the coming soon 2nd gen Tesla Roadster will not only be the fastest production car, but it will also have a range of 620 miles which is absurd.

Driving safe under FSD can be done.

Honest Safe Driving Tips With Tesla’s FSD Beta That Could Change Everything

Here is a must-watch video by a Tesla owner demonstrating Tesla’s FSD Beta 10.01 with the most sensible---if not most honest---commentary on what it takes to drive with FSD Beta safely and how it compares to earlier versions of FSD. This video is highly recommended due to it appears to be one of the most honest Tesla-owner driving experiences on video that should help non-Tesla owners understand the limitations of FSD better, and what it takes for current Tesla owners to drive safely under FSD.

Good News for Tesla: 20% of All Cars Sold Worldwide Will Be EVs by 2025

Electric transportation is a win-win: it meets customer needs, provides environmental benefits, and supports the world’s energy security. Around the world, by the year 2025 20% of all new cars sold globally will be electric, according to the latest forecast by the investment bank UBS. That will leap to 40% by 2030, and by 2040 virtually every new car sold globally will be electric, says UBS.

Tesla New Record: Recycling 100% of its Batteries

For decades, the few electric vehicles that were on the road were powered by lead-acid batteries. The latest models, with their lighter weight and longer range, use lithium-ion batteries, just like most laptops and cell phones. In either case, the batteries that power electric cars can be recycled. The idea of recycling used-up electric-car batteries makes sense because using recycled material in battery production is far cheaper and less environmentally damaging than mining new material.

Tesla Megapack and Solar to Help Fight Climate Change

Helping fight the awful effects of climate change, clearly caused by the extended use of fossil fuels over the last century and a half, is not so simple. It might sound like a huge exaggeration, but Tesla Megapacks can actually help any National, Regional, State or Municipal government around the world to produce, store and distribute clean and renewable energy in a reliable way: battery packs.

Elon Musk Praises The Feedback Mind-Blowing Improvements of Tesla's FSD Version V10

To anyone accustomed to conventional cars, just naming the Autopilot concept might sound like something out of science fiction. In the case of the low percentage of people who know something about electric vehicles, there is even some possibility that they have heard of FSD, or Full Self Driving, from Tesla.

Ideal Tesla Combination: Electric Car, Solar & Powerwall

As an ideal combination that would allow anybody – with enough resources – to go 100% electric in a sustainable way, having any of the Tesla lineup models and a Powerwall + Solar Roof (or solar tiles-shingles) from Tesla would make the ideal combination in terms of green energy, and in the long run, in terms of economic-financial sense.
