Tesla lives in the headlines, because it has a compelling story behind it.

Tesla Takes Their Time

After Tesla Motors broke the scale (and the compression machine) with their Model S, and then achieved expectations with the Model X, the Model 3 has some large shoes to fill. As important as the other two were, the Tesla Model 3 is far more to the company’s future success or failure. Relatively speaking, it is rather simple to make one car in low volume, that shames the more established com

Tesla and the Industry

Tesla Motors must be one of the most explosive companies to ever grace the automotive market. Despite the fact that there are established players in the market that have been selling cars for decades now, their offerings cannot compete with the second car Tesla Motors ever designed, the Model S. In all fairness to the other automakers, they had a pretty good thing going for quite a while. After de

Tesla: Hacks and Rumors

Tesla Motors cannot spend a single week without being a publicized topic of discussion for a litany of various reasons. Skeptics usually have some harbinger of doom to broadcast, while Tesla-philes have some new snake oil to talk up. Usually it is non-news with a buzzword (Tesla) incorporated into it. That said, some of the following will be speculative (non-news) by origin. However, combined, th

Tesla Jr.

The headline may have caught you by surprise, so let me reiterate: yes, Tesla has built a Model S for kids. While you or I might think that’s a bit nutty, Elon Musk has come up with far more outlandish proposals in the past. The mini Tesla Model S—which we are henceforth calling Tesla Jr. (pictured)—was created in collaboration with Radio Flyer. (If the brand name isn’t familiar to you, you may s

Jaden Smith Has a Tesla Model X…Jealous?

The Tesla Model X is scheduled to hit dealership floors in late 2016, but exceptions can always be made if you’re Hollywood royalty. At 17, Jaden Smith is the youngest owner thus far of a Tesla Model X. The After Earth star was pictured posing with his Tesla Titanium Model X this week in Calabasas, CA. To some, it may be a bit galling that a kid like Smith could get his hands on a Tesla Model X s

Tesla Model 3: An Electric Vehicle for the Common Man (and Woman)

Audi e-tron Evolution

Hybrid technology picked up steam (or took charge) in the 70s during the oil crisis. It was not widely implemented, but it was heavily researched. The first major company with a feasible evolved electric hybrid was actually Audi in 1989 with their 100 Avant based Duo, but it was scrapped duo to the excessive weight of the batteries. Then came the Prius. It was the first hybrid that made no major

While I’m sure the e-tron series has been tinkered with for well over a decade now, the first (concept) model was not unveiled
