In case you missed it, last tonight, Elon Musk dropped this nugget on his Twitter feed that Tesla was offering a new, lower cost, Tesla Model 3 Mid Range. Before I go any further, I want to reiterate what I said in my previous article about Tesla, simply, “Let’s All Calm Down.” Now let’s proceed with some speculation
With more than 2,000,000 million square feet of space, how do workers at the Tesla Gigafactory 1 eat? As usual, Tesla has thought of everything and its solutions are benefiting both workers and local businesses.
Even without the much-feared “Ludicrous Mode,” Tesla’s Model 3 Performance version is creating some jaw-dropping scenes at drag race venues
September had 2,796 plug-in vehicle registrations, which was the market’s best result since 2016. That translated into a plug-in vehicle (PEV) share of 9.5% in the country. The result pulls the year-to-date count to 14,977 units, with the 2018 PEV share growing to 4.1%
Whoa, did CNBC take a U-turn? Is it going to start trolling oil companies instead of Tesla? Or did it just accidentally bring the wrong analyst onto a show
Tesla’s production and sales growth is stunning. It is one of the most dramatic manufacturing stories in US history, let alone 2018.

However, one story I haven’t seen highlighted yet is that the Tesla Model 3 was the #1 highest selling American car in September
The tariffs imposed by the Trump administration are encouraging Tesla to get its Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai built sooner so it can start manufacturing cars in China. The company says it costs up to 60% more to build a car in the US than in China.
Some people like “Tesla killer” articles. I don’t know who exactly (other than a few shorts I won’t name in the hopes they don’t come over to this site to comment again). But to most of us, it’s more fun to more realistically explain why Tesla is the one destined to crush the competition in the coming years. One such story stole the show last week
Maybe this isn’t the right metaphor. Lighting and thunder are essentially the same things — just the light and sound manifestations of a certain phenomenon. Nonetheless, in a sense, I guess you could say that the Model 3 and Model Y will be different forms of the same thing as well, right? Different vehicle forms using the same powertrain — or a very similar powertrain
The reason Tesla names its Nevada battery production factory the Gigafactory was to help people understand that only when operating at a larger economy of scale does EV battery production truly become profitable
