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.

Reasons For Tesla Cybertruck Wearing Camouflage In Last Sighting

When the current prototype of the Tesla Cybertruck was presented back in 2019, it was shown without any type of camouflage or covering; later on it was shown again in public in an open way, driving around New York city and then again on the test tracks at Tesla Gigafactory; but now in the latest video available it appears with camouflage: why would that be?

Kia, Hyundai and Tesla Stand to Gain as Ford Halts 3 Production Lines

Beginning earlier this week, Ford is halting production on 3 different production lines, including the Cuautitlan, Mexico plant that produces the Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle. Is this only a brief pause, or is it the first sign of an impending miss for Ford as it attempts to massively ramp up EV production to compete with Tesla and out-sell other mainstream rivals vying for leadership in the race toward an electrified automotive future?
