 Tesla’s Semi is off to a promising start, despite there being no official pricing information available yet: In addition to a Walmart pilot, Canadian grocery giant Loblaw is purchasing 25 of the heavy duty all-electric transport trucks (via Canadian Press), with a $5,000 deposit for each upfront even though pricing is TBD for the vehicle, which is supposed to start shipping in 2019.… Read More

The retailer told CNBC that it’s “excited to be among the first” to test the new vehicle, and to see how it might help them achieve “long-term sustainability goals” including decreasing their overall emissions footprint. The retailer will… Read More

Walmart plans to pilot test the new Tesla Semi




 Tesla has delivered the ultimate fan car – a revamped version of its original Roadster, with crazy fast acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph times of only 4.2 seconds, a top speed north of 250 mph and 621 miles of estimated range on a single charge. There’s nothing quite like seeing the car peel out in person, which I got a chance to do at the Tesla Semi… Read More

 Tesla’s truck is a departure from more traditional diesel powered equivalents in a number of ways, but it might be most starkly different when it comes to the cabin. I got the chance to spend some time in and around the Tesla Semi, and it’s going to offer up a dramatically different experience for drivers once they get the chance to hit the road. The truck cab itself is obviously… Read More

 Tesla’s Semi is an all-electric semi truck, which itself is a major feat, but its powertrain isn’t the only technological innovation that the automaker is applying to trucking. One other key element of the new Semi is that it will automatically avoid one of the most notorious, and dangerous potential safety issues faced by big rigs with trailers: jackknifing. Even the name is… Read More

 Tesla is moving to turn around its output challenges with the Model 3, with a new acquisition reported by Bloomberg of a supplier whose focus is on automating production. The automaker acquired Perbix, a supplier it’s been working with for the past few years, with the deal coming to light just after Tesla addressed its production difficulties with the Model 3 on its most recent… Read More

Tesla acquires automated manufacturing machine supplier Perbix






 Tesla went into a bit more detail about the production challenges it faces with the Model 3 in its letter to investors on the heels of its earnings report for Q3 today. We already know that Tesla shipped only 222 Model 3 vehicles during the quarter, since it releases sales numbers earlier than it reports earnings. But we now have some color regarding the manufacturing details that have slowed… Read More

 Tesla CEO Elon Musk noted on Twitter that Tesla’s solar team could indeed outfit Puerto Rico with power facilities that could be used to generate and store power reserves when the existing grid isn’t available, as it has been after the U.S. territory faced the devastation of hurricane Maria. Now, Tesla is showing that it’s making good on its promise of help, with… Read More

 BMW has a new electric concept vehicle designed to show how it envisions occupying its electric model range between the i3 and the i8: The i Visions Dynamics. The four-dour luxury coupe has a head-turning design, including Tesla-familiar features like flush door handles, but BMW is also touting its range at a whopping 373 miles, with a top speed of over 120 mph and a 0-to-60 mph time of just… Read More

 Is this the new semi truck Tesla is set to unveil at the end of this month? The truck, posted to Reddit (then deleted, then re-posted) bears more than a passing resemblance to the image shared in a teaser released by the automaker itself (via The Verge). The sleek angled front also looks like something you’d expect to be electrically powered, if that makes any sense. You can compare… Read More

Tesla electric semi truck possibly spied in new photo












I’m still wondering if I can get used to not having a dashboard. Very cool minimalistic look. What do you think?

Tesla Model 3 – No Dashboard









Tesla started delivering its Model 3 cars last night. I really like the clean interior look. This is their $35000 car which actually costs more than that in the real world but you would expect that. Still waiting to actually drive one. I was one of those who put $1000 down on the first day but not quite as much of a cult follower to say if I’m going to actually buy the car, resell it, or get my deposit back.

Elon’s delivery event was disappointing, poorly done with little information. He could use a new webmaster too as the online delivery was a disaster. However – some new information was revealed.

My configuration would be as follows:

Car: $35000

Destination Charge: $1200

Big Battery: $9000

Color other than black: $1000

Full Self Driving: $8000

Sales Tax: $5000

Registration / Home Charger / Other : $2000

Fed Tax Credit: -$7500

California Tax Credit: -$2500

Total: $51200

I would much rather have a hatchback than a trunk. And wondering about mounting my cell phone as I still want functionality that the screen isn’t going to give me like text, email, and other Android apps.
