    Door handles too hot to touch

    We just brought home our Model Y last week. It's parked on a driveway that has a southwest exposure. My kids and I have both had times in the afternoons when the door handles got extremely hot from sitting in the sun. The kids were afraid to try and open the doors. I don't think it's hot enough...

    How does high temp impact charging eletric cars? (If at all)

    I live in the South (North Carolina) and during the summer my two car garage can reach as high as 92 degrees. Out of curiosity, is there a concern charging an electric car within that temperature range?

    From Silicon Valley to Death Valley in a Tesla

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but I just came across this travel log of a guy who drove his MS from Silicon Valley to Death Valley. The post caught my eye because if you have ever driven to Death Valley you know that one of the biggest concerns is your <strong>car...
