I have no idea how did we missed this. This particular dark custom Tesla Model S went viral when it surfaced back in 2016. Notwithstanding that it is over a year old, we thought it will be a good idea to mention it since there may be folks like me who aren’t aware and also because, Zachary Shahan of CleanTechnica had the opportunity to see it in person and thus, wrote an article on the backstory of this one-of-a-kind Tesla hearse (and there’s a video too). Continue reading Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?
As advanced and high-tech as the Tesla Model 3 is, it is, like the rest of the fleet under the electric car maker, without built-in wireless charger for your lovely small gadgets. It is odd indeed because, Tesla Motors is like the name for futuristic tech, but it is without this particular tech. Apparently, that is the one feature that Tesla owners would love to have in their trust electric stallion with some even resort to making one for their Tesla motor vehicles. Anywho, if you want wireless charging and do not have the know-how to put one together, fret not, because a start up is bringing to you the wonderful tether-free charging and it is called, well, Tesla Wireless Pad. Continue reading With This Wireless Phone Charger, The Model 3 Is Finally Truly High-Tech
In case you have not heard, this week’s biggest news yet was the successful launch of SpaceX Merlin 27-engine Falcon Heavy rocket. While the launch was no doubt monumental, but the most interesting part of this successful launch wasn’t entirely the launch itself; it was Elon Musk’s very own Tesla Roadster that was onboard, >hitching a ride into space and it had a dummy in spacesuit called “Starman” behind the wheel. Obviously, there was nothing much a wheeled vehicle with zero thrust and in a vacuum can do – even if the dummy wasn’t a dummy. Continue reading SpaceX Launched Falcon Heavy Rocket With Musk’s Roadster In It
If you can recall, during the Tesla Semi unveiling event, Tesla also made a surprise (or maybe not…) announcement of the second-generation Tesla Roadster and more crucially, tease something that sets the heart of fans of Tesla and pickup enthusiasts’ heart fluttering. It was a pickup truck. A supersize one, to be exact, shown in a render that had a bed huge enough to swallow a F-150 Supercrew almost whole. Wait. That’s no pickup truck. It’s a truck and if the render was a projection of Elon Musk’s mind, then that thing there is probably of a Unimog class truck. Continue reading Elon Musk Confirms A Tesla Pickup Truck Is In The Pipeline… After Model Y
The release of Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, may not be so interesting to the average consumer. We were more blown away by the Tesla Roadster 2.0 with its 1.9s 0-60 time and its incredible top speed. Don’t ignore the Tesla Semi just yet, however, because it is one of the most important milestones that will be remembered for years to come. Continue reading What Does The New Tesla Semi Mean For The Future?
No shitting me. Is Tesla going to make a smartphone too? If so, I can only say that this forerunner of electric cars really have a thing for all-thing that runs on battery. According to a China website, some leak images proposed that Tesla is indeed going to make a smartphone, but we shall take this exciting rumor with a pinch of salt. I mean, there have been times when some talented creatives out there have whipped up convincing ‘official products’ and so… Anyways, the purported leaked device sports a design that is quite inline with Tesla motor vehicles’ design language. Continue reading Wait, What? Is Tesla Motors Really Going To Make A Smartphone?
For a company who is particularly proud of its battery cell technology, it only makes sense that the company also turns out devices that charge other things other than cars. We are talking about Tesla – the one company that arguably changes the way we look at electric vehicle. For the uninitiated, Tesla is not just about silent, quick accelerating, sexy cars (and now Semis too). Like many automakers before it, it also have a bunch of lifestyle products to keep loyal fans satisfied and among them is, not surprisingly, a power bank. Continue reading Tesla Made A Power Bank That Packs The Same Cell Used On Tesla Vehicles
After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster. Sporting a wide stance and a suspiciously Corvette-ish/NSX-ish front end, the brand new Tesla Roadster is as sleek as you would have expect from Tesla, or any roadster for that matter. Propelling the vehicle are three motors: one driving the front wheels and two driving the rear wheels. The motors are powered by a 200 kWh battery system that offers an out-of-this-world 620 miles (998 kilometers) range on a single charge… at highway speeds. Continue reading Tesla’s 2nd-Gen Roadster Wows With Sleek Lines And Supercar Performance
So, here it is. The much anticipated Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, is finally revealed. I am not going to lie. I have not love a semi this much until now. Now, I am not a Tesla fanboy, btw, but this thing here is super sleek and the technology it has to offer would be the yardstick of the future of semis. While aesthetically fabulous, it is, however, secondary. What’s impressive here is what it can really do. For starter, it is faster than your average car, making 0-60 in 5 seconds without a trailer and way, way quicker than any diesel-powered semi. Continue reading Tesla’s Electric Cargo Hauling Truck Has A Supercar Drag Coefficient
A year after the introduction of electric power suppliers’ worst nightmare, the Powerwall Home Battery, Tesla is at it again, these time doubling electric power suppliers’ nightmare by two fold. Not did it introduced a higher capacity home battery, aptly called Powerwall 2, Tesla also unveiled roof tile-replacing solar panels called, well, Solar Roof. The second-generation Powerwall is sleeker, simpler in aesthetic and more importantly, packs in much more than its predecessor. With 14 kWh of storage capacity, this new home battery is capable of storing enough juice to power lights, sockets, and even a fridge in a four bedroom house for the entire day.
