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.

The Current Tesla Lineup

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

Is Apple's iCar Google next? Is it going to be an autonomous drive? Will this be a winner or a loser? Who will jump into the first car launched by a company that has only been making electronics? This are the questions I have for this long awaited product launch.
Tesla Model X

Am I the only one who thinks the Tesla Model X is a move in the wrong direction?

If Elon Musk wants to make Tesla a mainstream car, is it going to the wrong direction with Model X? People are hoping for a Tesla model that will cost less than $30,000 and go 200 miles on a single charge, while Tesla is coming up with a Model X, which costs $132,000 and going to $144,000 with upgrades.

A Clear way to fill up your Tesla faster than a Gas Car can with Gas

There are so many people that look at the recharging times of electric cars and swear they will never get one because of the time lag of a recharge. Even though you can fill up your Tesla Model S overnight as you sleep in your garage. Even though you can wake up with a full "tank" every single morning after a good night sleep. Even though, there is a nationwide fast charger network.

Two Reasons It's a Bad Idea for GM to use Tesla Superchargers

The Chevy Bolt is a smaller car with presumably a smaller battery. Pumping that current is not a good idea; Tesla gets away with because of battery size. Sure the Bolt could be designed to throttle back the charge, but then you lose some advantage to the quick charge.

Second issue is battery chemistry. Not all lithium batteries are created equal and they. Tesla uses NCA. The Bolt, if the whispers are to be believed, is supposed to use NCM.
From what I've read NCM degrades faster than NCA.
