Tesla “Ludicrous Mode” added to Model S

Tesla “Ludicrous Mode” added to Model S

Tesla is adding a Ludicrous Mode to its Model S, introducing a new "smart fuse" that allows the 0-60 mph time to be cut to just 2.8 seconds. Rather than using a traditional fuse that melts if the voltage gets too high, Tesla has developed an electronic version with its own battery, which tracks current in real-time and is pyro-actuated to cut the power if necessary. That's allowed Tesla to increase the maximum throughput from 1300 to 1500 Amps on the Model S P85D and P90D.

In just 3 years, Tesla’s Model S has been driven 1bn miles

Tesla Model S drivers have driven their cars a billion all-electric miles, with the milestone coming just three years after the sedan was launched. The news was shared today, with Tesla comparing the cumulative distance traveled with 4,186 trips to the moon, or a continuous road trip lasting a ridiculous 2,000 years. Of course, the bigger impact that Elon Musk's plucky automotive startup would like to draw attention to is the gas and carbon dioxide saved.

Tesla’s Hot Wheels Model S will cost you $1

Mattel's miniature toy car brand Hot Wheels has revealed the Tesla Model S. This is just one of several models shown off this week as brands like Chevrolet take to the showroom floor with a new set of vehicles just a couple of weeks before SDCC. While one doesn't necessarily have to do with the other, it's a perfect time to get in before the crushing blow of the nerd news comes down - and these models will be sold at the convention, too, so there's that.

Tesla aiming for $35k Model 3 unveiling in March 2016

Tesla aiming for $35k Model 3 unveiling in March 2016

While Tesla and its all-electric Model S seem to be getting lots of attention within the auto industry these days, the cars are not easily affordable, starting around $75,000 before rebates and tax credits. That's about double the $33,500 that Kelley Blue Book says is the average price of a new car in the U.S. But that doesn't mean Tesla and founder Elon Musk aren't planning to go head-to-head price-wise with Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys, in fact the company stated earlier this week that they are targeting a March 2016 unveiling for their next vehicle, the Model 3.

Video: Tesla Model X seen in California highway testing

Tesla’s Model X is a snazzy new SUV that’s set to arrive in the driveways of those who bought one (without even driving it!) later this year. If all goes according to plan, the third quarter of 2015 should see the Model X hit the road, officially. Unofficially, we’ve seen the Model X tested in semi-private locations. Again, unofficially, we’re now seeing the Model X tested in a very public way, as one lucky sleuth caught the Model X on test near Palo Alto, California. On the highway!

Tesla to put Model S “range anxiety” to rest on Thursday

Tesla to put Model S “range anxiety” to rest on Thursday

While electric cars seem almost ideal from an environmental point of view, one of the biggest hurdles to their massive adoption is their range capabilities. Tesla, whose business hedges heavily on EVs, knows only too well what it now calls "range anxiety". So when it promises to calm all those nerves come March 19th, people in the automotive industry, especially its rivals in the electric vehicle market, will definitely await that day with piqued curiosities, if not a new kind of anxiety themselves: Tesla anxiety.

Tesla caught testing, but is this Model X or Model 3?

Tesla caught testing, but is this Model X or Model 3?

The launch of Tesla's Model X may have been pushed back until later in 2015, but someone is apparently getting to enjoy how the electric SUV launches from a standing start. A case of "right place, right time" saw Juan del Real catch the camouflaged car undergoing testing in Alameda, California, hooning up and down a runway as some lucky driver got to put the EV powertrain - and the prototype's brakes - through their paces. However, there's also speculation that what we're seeing is no Model X, and could in fact be something much more interesting: Tesla's upcoming "affordable" EV, the Model 3.
