While electric vehicles, like Tesla’s, require less maintenance because they are equipped with fewer moving parts than their gasoline-powered counterparts, owners are often still better off with some service and inspections. EVs are still cars and inherently complex machines traveling in often less than ideal conditions. You still want to check your wheel alignment, access fluid and coolant levels, and look for potential parts needing replacements.

That’s why Tesla offers maintenance plans and today, they introduce a new one for the Model X and an updated one for the Model S. The new plans are more expensive than what Tesla was previously offering, but they also offer more services, including hardware improvements – not unlike Tesla’s included software upgrades. expand full story

While having some leased space in Zionsville for service is certainly good news to local owners, there’s also a bad news.

Tesla could face yet another potential roadblock from a bill proposed by the state government that would effectively disallow them from selling any further.

Last month, we reported on Tesla Motors Club member Troy doing some great data collecting on Supercharger concentration. His report looked into Supercharger coverage per market versus the number of Tesla vehicles in the same markets.

The report was a way to better understand Supercharger coverage ahead of the important increase of Tesla’s fleet of vehicles with the upcoming Model 3. Aside for Superchargers, the other main concern with the imminent increase is service.

Now Troy published a similar report, but for service center concentration per market. expand full story
