    Top Gear finally has a good video and review of Tesla

    I am surprised that Tesla allowed Top Gear to get inside their factory and let them review their cars, given the bad history between Tesla and Top Gear. a really good video overall, especially the videos inside the factory.

    [Poll] - Is releasing Model Y so early a mistake?

    Is releasing Model Y so early a HUGE mistake? Because it would take away sales of Model 3 just as demand for Model 3 is falling or flat, at least in America. And Model Y won't even be in production for 1.5 year at the earliest. So basically Model 3 demand will be depressed for the next almost...

    [Poll] - Saudi Arabia investment a conspiracy to control and crush Tesla?

    With Saudi Arabia already having 5% stake in Tesla and they plan to increase their stake even more with Tesla go-private deal, Saudi will own a big portion of Tesla (probably will still be less than 20% owned by Elon though). Saudi claims that they are just diversifying their oil investment and...

    Video - Model X vs Jaguar I-Pace drag race commercial

    Is this biased? They probably drain the Model X down to 10% and then do the race to make the Jaguar looks faster. Either way, Elon Musk still win moving the world to EV :-)

    Ridiculous Bloomberg article: some people would die waiting for Model 3

    Tesla with transmission will solve range and heating issues?

    As an engineer, I have always wondered why Tesla don't go with multi-gear transmission, just like ICE cars. The advantage is that the electric motor only needs to output very low RPM in order for the car to achieve highway speed. That means less electrical power is needed overall, and the range...
