Recommended Posts

Yahoo has this great video on consumers reports review of the new Tesla P85D model.

Pretty interesting to listen to them, they admit it is not a perfect car, but still blew everything away with a 103 score.

The Tesla must be better than perfect.   CR should retro-active adjust all other scores and take 3 points off every car off all time.   If Toyota ever makes an all electric Prius it will probably get 110 points out of a possible 100.

      Tesla's production hell seems to be only getting worse than better. Various issues at their Freemont plant has caused the automaker to push back their goal of producing 5,000 Model 3s from late last year to June of this year. This, in turn, has caused some holders of Model 3 reservations to have their order pushed back to 2019.
      “As we work hard to meet demand, we wanted to let you know that your estimated delivery timing has been adjusted to a slightly later window,” Tesla said in an email to customers.
      According to Bloomberg, the new date depends on when the reservation was placed and what model was chosen. Tesla is trying to get the more expensive long-range battery model out first before starting production of the cheaper standard battery model. This has buyers of the latter model worried as they might not get the full $7,500 tax credit. The credit begins to phase out once an automaker has built 200,000, something Tesla expects to hit sometime this year.
      The move has caused some reservation holders to take to various forums and Twitter to complain. Others are deciding to jump ship and buy a Chevrolet Bolt. Reuters reports that Chevrolet dealers in California are seeing a noticeable increase of Tesla shoppers interested in the Bolt.
      “We’re getting the Tesla people who wanted their Model 3. We ask them, ‘What other cars are you interested in?’ They’re mostly Tesla. But they want the car now. They don’t want to wait,” said Yev Kaplinskiy of Stewart Chevrolet.
      Kaplinskiy said they sold 15 Bolts last weekend.
      Chevrolet is taking advantage of the delay by emailing some prospective buyers this week with the message of, “Bolt EV: Now available.”

      Tesla Wagon production has begun in UK.

      Start with a Model S P90 and deconstruct the rear, add a carbon fiber rear addition and lift gate and you have the Tesla Wagon that went from a 26.3 cubic feet of interior space to an SUV-like 33.7 cubic feet, that is 7.4 additional cubic feet of space. This enhanced Wagon added a total of 26 pounds to the finished weight and is still faster than the Mercedes-benz AMG E63 wagon.
      This whole project came about by a guy who got his Tesla S and then realized his Four legged friends could not be in the far back comfortably. What you end up with is a new company called QWESTNORFOLK and they are now taking real orders for people who want a feature rich EV 4 door wagon.
      According to the interview that was done by Hybrid Cars, (web site) This was all done use established auto part suppliers in Europe meaning that
      there glass, rear window wiper, electrical bits, etc. can be easily obtained.
      Everyone is writting about it this week but the auto is here is functional now. 
      Wonder how many will actually get built? Europe does like their wagons and EVs and this is both.
