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.

  • Teslas Model 3 ————————————— Starting MSRP $35,000
  • Tesla Model S ————————————— Starting MSRP $75,000
  • Tesla Model X ————————————— Starting MSRP $81,000

Tesla Model 3 Vehicles

I Am Not a Green Person, But I Bought a Tesla Model S

I think Tesla fans can be equated at times like that of sharks in a feeding frenzy. They attack with an amount of voracity that can at times be overwhelming. They can swarm with the aggressiveness of hornets. They are quite proud of Model S, X and Model 3 and my experience in this one instance is that it can do no wrong. Sorry to burst a bubble but that is incorrect.

Model S Owners Are Unhappy With a New Adapter Allowing Other EVs To Charge at Tesla Chargers

Recently there were lots of mentions in the media that Tesla Destination Chargers are becoming crowded and as if this was not enough, now a new J1772 adapter allows other electric cars to charge at Tesla’s Destination Chargers. Not every Tesla Model S owner is happy with that, we all need to adjust and make space.

Tesla Wall Connector Install Price Was Too High, So I Did It Myself

Some cities have strict electric ordinances making it more expensive for Tesla Model S owners to have a Wall Connector installed at an affordable prices.

Tesla Model S Wheelspin Is Limited Compared To Performance Cars

The shaft of the Tesla Model S electric motor inserts into an open differential gear box that then drives the two wheels.

Plug-in vehicles and tax planning. It's that time again

I’ve even had tax professionals give incorrect guidance to their clients, so here’s a bit of info...

Tesla Model S $30K Price Drop? No, Tesla Doesn’t do Deals

A recent email from a Tesla dealer caught the attention of the Tesla Motors Club. A very interesting and unusual sentence was in this email “We are offering showroom incentives up to $30,000 off the original configuration price.” This phrase is not one Tesla themselves say often, and with a standard list no lower than $75,000 did the Model S and Model X just drop in price, if so why now?
