    Got a free copy of Issue #1 of a mag called RADAR. 3rd page in was a 2 sided Tesla Model X ad.
    I have yet to see ANY advertisement for any tesla product.

    Sure 1st photo post attempt. Also, the mag is not about RADAR as we know it, its about regulatory intelligence.

    What’s with ‘With... 100 kWh battery providing 351 miles of range’? Not something for sale on the Tesla sales site!

    Fishy?

    Maybe the range of a S P100D with a typo 315 > 351. It’s strange are we sure we are not missing a referral link somewhere on the page?

    Good catch. Wonder where that number came from? There's no fine print or asterisks on the page either.

    The European NEDC range for the Model X 100D is 351 miles.

    They did print ads for the roadster ~10 years ago. The occasional print ad for Model S since. It's just very low key and they don't spend a ton on it.

    Wouldn’t they be using km instead of miles?

    In the UK they still use miles for most stuff automotive, though I understand that many street signs now also indicate km.
