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.

  • Tesla Model X ————————————— Starting MSRP $81,000

Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla Cybertruck: Amazing Features of its Exoskeleton

When the Tesla Cybertruck was introduced, the first thing that caused a great visual impression, and even a certain mixture of rejection and amazement, was precisely the design of the body: the straight and angular lines, the post-modernist aspect mixed with a certain touch of science fiction (Blade Runner, the iconic movie from the 80's always comes to mind), plus the aggressive and futuristic design left no one indifferent, both for and against Cybertruck.

Elon Musk - Batteries Are the Most Important Resource for Electric Cars

Elon Musk just stated on Twitter that batteries are just as important for future transportation as oil is for current transport. This is a profound statement and what must be realized is that the battery is the most expensive component to an electric car. And that cost is going to decline over time as the technology improves.

Elon Musk Just Explained How To Do Bug Report in Tesla

“You should be able to press mic button & say “bug report,” Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday, in response to users reporting issues with the FSD – Full Self Driving (Auto Pilot): in some cases it was about collision warnings on hilly roads (when there was actually no car in front of the driver) and in some other cases getting a ding for hard braking against the driver, when it was actually the AP (Auto Pilot) that hit the brakes.
Model Y Headlight

Tesla To Have The Best Headlights on The Market

Your headlights are one of your vehicle’s most important safety features: their brightness can be the difference between a clear view of the road ahead at night and the ability to detect other vehicles, pedestrians, animals, and obstacles and react in time to avoid them, and avoid being involved in an unfortunate collision because you weren’t able to see in the darkness. Tesla is updating the entire Model S, 3, X, and Y lineup with exterior and interior tweaks, as part of its overall update-refresh.
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.

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.
