It’s well-known at this point that Tesla doesn’t pay for advertising, the company prefers spending its money in R&D and service (though it has a significant marketing budget), but that doesn’t stop fans from creating unofficial TV spots for the automaker’s flagship sedan. expand full story

I like the idea of doing lawn work. Through all of the sweat and heat, there’s a deep sense of satisfaction once the job is completed. I think I enjoy it primarily because it’s the antithesis of my daily routine as a tech blogger.

Sadly, there are some things that make it hard to enjoy the traditional lawn care routine. The putrid smell of gasoline, the allergies, dealing with mowers that won’t start, the deafening noise, the numbing vibrations of the handle, running out of gas, etc.

The very idea of an alternative-powered lawn mower always appealed to me, but their shortcomings were too much for me to seriously consider one…until now. expand full story

Self-driving cars are expected to facilitate the life of a lot of people with disabilities, like the visually impaired, but also some elderly people who often face restrictions when driving after a certain age.

Of course, it will require a period of adaptation as evidenced by this 70 years old woman’s first experience with the Tesla Autopilot caught on video. expand full story

Although far from having completed the project, it’s quite impressive what Tesla accomplished in the Nevada desert in a little less than 2 years – of course that’s with the help of several contractors and its partner, Panasonic.

After breaking ground in July 2014, before even announcing a deal with the state, Tesla has now completed the first phase of its giant battery factory, which should soon be officially inaugurated.

You can watch a quick time-lapse of its construction below. expand full story

We’ve seen some close calls saved by the Model S’ active safety features powered by the Autopilot, like auto emergency braking preventing a 45mph head-on collision here, but today we take a look at a great example of Tesla’s auto emergency steering at work. expand full story

We’ve seen plenty of Tesla Model S 0 to 60 mph acceleration tests, but we’ve rarely seen tests of the car’s top speed, which is advertised at 155 mph (250 km/h). So rarely, that I forgot that the speedometer actually turns red when approaching the top speed.

It’s probably due to the logistics of testing a vehicle at such speed, which can’t be done outside of a select few roads and tracks, but today we get to see a fun and quick test in all legality from AutoTopNL on the Autobahn. expand full story

We’ve seen some pretty ridiculous Tesla drag races over the years, more recently a Model S vs a snowmobile, but this one easily takes the first prize. At first glance, it might look like a fair fight, a Alfa Romeo 4C versus a Alfa Romeo 4C, but the second one is actually being towed by a Model X P90D.

If we want to be more accurate and look beyond the gimmick, the race is really between a Alfa Romeo 4C and a Tesla Model X P90D towing ~2,500 lbs, which is still an interesting experiment.  expand full story
