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.

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.

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. Yes, if you can pay the price of Model S you should be able to afford the cost of Wall Connector installation. But one man did it himself and here is how he did it.

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. This gearing allows the outside drive wheel to rotate faster than the inner drive wheel during turns. Without this gearing either the inside wheel will rotate too fast or the outside wheel will drag.

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?

Does Tesla removing the restrictions on Ludicrous mode make it less reliable?

Earlier this year, Tesla Model S owners discovered that the automaker was restricting power output in certain models equipped with its "Ludicrous" performance mode. The limits were tied to frequent use of "Launch Mode," essentially Tesla's version of launch control. If a driver used it too much, Tesla restricted power output to prevent excessive wear and tear on components.

Will the I.D. Buzz concept redeem VW in the eyes of EV enthusiasts?

The VW ID Buzz concept has the potential to immediately erase the bad blood between EV enthusiasts and their primary role in the Diesel gate scandal. The question is will they get it right. Depending on how the production model varies from the concept, it could be the first electric van with decades of sentiment behind it. For what it’s worth, I have brought it to the attention of some of my baby boomer friends and their immediate reaction was “I WANT IT!”

Is the existing charging infrastructure enough to support widespread EV adoption?

Most would say no, not by a longshot. Tesla owners are probably ok, especially Model S & Model X owners since they get 1000 miles work of free supercharger access. It is everyone else that may find it hard to find an open EVSE once the public starts buying EVs in mass.
