You Now Get Free Unlimited Supercharging With Your New Tesla Model S Or X (Again)

One of the big early selling points of the Tesla Model S was free, unlimited access to Tesla’s Supercharging network. After being limited to referrals before being axed entirely, free lifetime Supercharging is back for all new Tesla Model S and Model X orders.

The Tesla Model S and Model X Base Models Just Got Dropped

The Tesla Model S and Model X Base Models Just Got Dropped

Tesla, at least for the moment, has quite the limited manufacturing capacity. For most consumers, that doesn’t matter one whit. But one of the end results of that is Tesla’s lineup is constantly shifting and moving in subtle ways. So it may not surprise you that Tesla banished the base model “standard range” Tesla Model X and Tesla Model S from its lineup.

In an effort to “simplify” its...

Elon Musk: Actually the Tesla Model S and Model X Aren't Getting a Refresh

Elon Musk: Actually the Tesla Model S and Model X Aren't Getting a Refresh

Back in May, CNBC reported that the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X would be getting a overhaul, adopting the style of the minimalist interior of the Tesla Model 3 while getting a few additional hardware upgrades. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has tweeted that it isn’t happening.

Earlier this year, rumors started to swirl that Tesla was working on updates for the Model S and Model X, its two oldest...

Tesla is Updating Battery Software After Model S Catches Fire in Hong Kong

A Tesla Model S caught fire in a Hong Kong parking lot on Sunday, less than a month after video of a Model S bursting into flames in Shanghai, China went viral.

The Tesla Model S and Model X Might Be Getting Some Updates, But Is it Enough?

The Tesla Model S and Model X Might Be Getting Some Updates, But Is it Enough?

The Tesla Model X has been around, virtually unchanged except for some incremental upgrades, since 2015. That’s not so bad. The Tesla Model S, except for the same incremental upgrades and a slight refresh, has been around since 2012. That’s not great. But now there are rumors both are getting some updates, and whether or not that excites you probably depends on how you view Tesla in...

Wrecked Teslas Are Full of Sensitive Data and So Are Most Modern Cars

Wrecked Teslas Are Full of Sensitive Data and So Are Most Modern Cars

A hacker and Tesla enthusiast known only as GreenTheOnly has spent a lot of time and effort digging deep into Tesla’s hardware and software, something that Tesla has never been crazy about. Recently, he’s examined the internal computer networks in wrecked and salvaged Teslas, including a Model S, a Model X, and two Model 3s. He found that those cars contained a metric crapload of user data,...

Electric Vehicles' Range Is Nearly Split in Half in Cold Weather: Study (Updated)

Electric Vehicles' Range Is Nearly Split in Half in Cold Weather: Study (Updated)

Electric cars are the future, whether you like it or not, though if they are our future they’re going to need to get a lot better than they are today. The batteries, in particular, aren’t good enough, the latest confirmation of this coming in a AAA study released today. Electric cars’ range falls by nearly half on average in temperatures under 20 degrees, according to the study, a number big...

There Are More Than Just Two Types of Electric Car

There Are More Than Just Two Types of Electric Car

For a long time, there were really only two types of electric cars that were best exemplified by the distinction between a Tesla Model S and, say, the Chevy Spark EV .

The Tesla Model S was a new approach to electric cars, as it was expensive, luxurious, and offered unparalleled performance when it debuted. It stood in great contrast to glorified golf carts and re-engineered Lotus Elises that...

On paper, the Kia Stinger and Tesla Model S 75D have fairly similar power figures, which means it should make for an interesting contest in a short drag race. Yet the result is just another example of how important torque can be when trying to show off.

In Top Gear’s latest drag race, they pit a 370 horsepower Kia...

Tesla Model S Appeared to Drive Seven Miles on Autopilot While Drunk Driver Slept: Police

Police in California on Friday arrested a 45-year-old man who was spotted by officers cruising in a Tesla Model S down highway 101, fast asleep behind the wheel, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s unclear if the car was in Autopilot mode at the time, but authorities believe that had to be the case, as it took seven minutes, over several miles, to successfully stop the Model S.

The Porsche Taycan Will Cost Less Than a Panamera to Challenge the Tesla Model S

The Porsche Taycan Will Cost Less Than a Panamera to Challenge the Tesla Model S

The upcoming all-electric Porsche Taycan is clearly meant to be a challenger to the Tesla Model S, but any assumptions that it would sit as a flagship model over the entire Porsche range are wrong. Porsche wants to price it below the Panamera, where it can better give Tesla a real run for its money.

Robert Meier, one of the bosses over seeing the Taycan, told Automotive News that Porsche will...

How Tesla Made the Model 3 Better Than the Model S

How Tesla Made the Model 3 Better Than the Model S

It’s no secret that the Tesla Model S shares a lot of components with other cars, especially when it comes to modules that control various features inside of the cabin. Using parts from cars like the Ford Fusion and the Mercedes E-Class made sense for Tesla’s first mainstream sedan outing as a small but growing manufacturer. Yet one of the questions with the Model 3 was whether Tesla would...

Tesla Model S and X Could Get Interiors Like the Model 3: Report

Tesla Model S and X Could Get Interiors Like the Model 3: Report

One of the 2018 Tesla Model 3’s most distinctive features is its spartan interior, a virtually button-free environment with most controls confined in a horizontal touchscreen. Now, the automaker is planning to introduce a similar interior for its more expensive vehicles, the Model S and X, according to a new report from Electrek.

I Want to Do a Cannonball Run but Mike Ballaban Is Concerned He’ll Have to Do Paperwork

Here is something I want to do: Drive across the country, nonstop, until I reach the Pacific Ocean. What I’d like to do is break one of Alex Roy’s records , but if I don’t, whatever. I just want to do it. My colleague, Jalopnik Deputy Editor Michael Ballaban, thinks this is a terrible idea. [Editor’s Note: It’s a terrible idea. - M.B.]

The Guy Who Salvages Ruined Teslas and Puts Them Back on the Road

Tesla is a bit of a control freak when it comes to repairing its electric vehicles . If you try to buy parts to make your own repairs, they won’t let you. The company views it as a way of protecting its reputation and ensuring quality. But YouTuber Rich Benoit believes Tesla owners should be able to work on their own cars, so he found a way to do it.
