Tesla Model X Stories October 21

Earlier this year, Tesla introduced new performance enhancements to Model S and Model X vehicles. The automaker never explained the impressive upgrade, which resulted in about 1-second faster 0 to 60 mph acceleration in almost all vehicle versions, beyond saying that it’s the result of both “software and hardware improvements.”

Now we learn that the company leveraged those improvements and they can implement them through a software update on some older Model S and X 75D vehicles for free. expand full story

Tesla Model X Stories September 26

The Tesla Model X has a lot of bells and whistle. One of those is the capability to open all the doors automatically – both the front doors and the Falcon Wing doors.

In a recent accident, that capability resulted in the doors opening automatically while the car was parked on the street and a truck was passing by. The truck completely ripped the door off the all-electric SUV.

Now the owner of the Model X and Tesla are arguing over what actually happened. expand full story

As the only option when it comes to all-electric SUVs, Tesla’s Model x is slowly growing in popularity.

Now apparently, even the U.S. Air Force wants one, but they are especially interested in its autonomous driving capability rather than the fact that it is electric. expand full story

Tesla Model X Stories August 29

Tesla updated its online design studio tonight to drop the price of the higher-end trims of Model S and Model X.

The automaker says that the price change is a way to reflect improvements in cost efficiency for the 100 kWh battery pack that is powering Tesla’s top-of-the-line vehicles. expand full story

Tesla Model X Stories August 21

As an SUV, the Tesla Model X, especially the latest P100D version, is putting a lot of exotic sports cars to shame when it comes to 0 to 60 mph acceleration and quarter-mile performance. It also just happens to be all-electric.

Now a Model X beat a Lamborghini Aventador in a drag race and established a new quarter-mile record of 11.4 seconds at 118 mph at the same time. expand full story

Tesla will add automatic “enter/exit” seat positions in future software update after Twitter request

Tesla is leveraging both its CEO’s popularity on twitter and its cars’ over-the-air update capability to respond to another customer request, with CEO Elon Musk promising on twitter that a future software update will include a function to automatically move the seat and steering wheel into a more comfortable position for entry and exit when the vehicle is put in park.

The Model S can be slightly difficult to get in and out of for less-flexible people, so this feature should be a nice addition for many customers.  I’ve personally seen several owners who have an “enter/exit” driver profile on their Teslas, with the seat and wheel position saved for easier exit and entry.  So while this workaround was always possible, Tesla’s software update will make it more automatic.

As we recently reported, Tesla used car business, or “remarketing business” as it is called internally, has been in full expansion with more inventories.

Now, Tesla is making a surprising new move by bringing the new inventory on third-party websites. expand full story

Tesla Model X Stories July 22

Overnight, Tesla made some changes to their available options, making some options standard, and notably eliminating one thing: leather seats. As of now, Tesla only sells vegan seats.

While this lack of leather is not made explicit on the Tesla configuration page, any mention of leather has been removed, and all upgraded interiors are now referred to with Tesla’s “premium” designation which they applied to the original rollout of vegan seats made of a new synthetic material.

However, not every component in a Tesla is vegan – cars still come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel standard, but Tesla has offered to provide a non-leather steering wheel upon request in the past for customers who make a point of avoiding all leather.
