Tesla

Tesla’s journey started back in 2003. The Palo Alto-based company is the top-rated EV company in the world today and is arguably the biggest EV player right now. The Musk-led company fought all the odds and did not get steamrolled by the other automakers. Tesla wanted a SEXY range of products, only for Ford to ruin the party, thus making them settle for a S3XY range. The American company has four mainstream products currently – the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y. Each of the products is doing immensely well in the market. Tesla will soon be coming out with a pickup truck and that has been the talking point of the industry. Tesla has a very strong fan following, and the same is seen even in social media. A recent report revealed that Tesla Pickup is the most talked-about truck on Twitter. The company seems to be unstoppable right now and it looks to have a bright future moving forward.

Watch The Genesis GV70 Put Up A Good Fight Before Being Incarcerated By The Tesla Model Y

Watch The Genesis GV70 Put Up A Good Fight Before Being Incarcerated By The Tesla Model Y

Standing up against EVs is a big task, but the Genesis GV70 did a fair job

The GV70 is Genesis’ first compact-luxury SUV, and it is a fantastic package overall. It is based on the G70 sedan, which means it has a sporty cred to it. And, Genesis being a luxury brand, you get all the bells and whistles as well. There are two engine options on offer, one being a four-pot turbo engine, and the other, a twin-turbo V-6.

Sam from Sam ‘CarLegion’ brought in a V-6 GV70 to take on a Tesla Model Y for a couple of drag races and a rolling race. The Model Y, being an EV, was going to be the winner for sure, but did the GV70 put up a good fight before going down? Let’s find out.

The Lamborghini Huracan EVO Smiles With Tears In Its Eyes As It Helplessly Watches The Model X Plaid Destroy It

The hapless Huracan EVO could do nothing more than watching the electric SUV defeat it on the drag strip

Ever since the Tesla Model S Plaid came out, it has been on a spree, embarrassing every other car it faces in straight-line races. Tesla came out with the performance Plaid version of its SUV, the Model X as well, sometime back. While it might not be as quick as its sedan sibling, it is still mighty quick to take on some of the hottest supercars from the present era. Its latest rival – or shall we say, a victim – is the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, and the Model X Plaid shows no mercy whatsoever.

This Tesla Model X Plaid vs Porsche 911 Turbo S Drag Race Is Modern-Day David vs Goliath, But With A Twist!

This Tesla Model X Plaid vs Porsche 911 Turbo S Drag Race Is Modern-Day David vs Goliath, But With A Twist!

Not in the same context it’s generally used, but the Model X Plaid showed that size doesn’t matter

Brooks recently got a Tesla Model X Plaid on his YouTube channel and did some quarter-mile sprints to see how quick it is. As expected, it scored some pretty good numbers. In its best run, it recorded a 0-60 mph time of 2.36 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.754 seconds.

To show that might over other cars, the Model X Plaid went up against the 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S. There’s no way the German is winning, and that shows how powerful and insane the Model X Plaid is. How often do you see a Porsche 911 Turbo S enter a race as the underdog?

Elon Musk Says Facelifted Tesla Model X's Rollout Was Horrible

Elon Musk Says Facelifted Tesla Model X’s Rollout Was Horrible

He admits he shouldn’t have stopped the Model X’s production in December 2020

The facelifted Tesla Model X was officially unveiled alongside the Model S in January of 2021, but to prepare for its launch, the production of the pre-facelift Model X was suspended in December 2020. Unfortunately, the facelifted Model X did not reach customers until October 2021, and this has led Elon Musk to admit that they "dropped the ball badly" on the Model X’s production.

This nation has embraced EVs much more than everyone else

Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the United States still represent a drop in the bucket. Based on the data released by Cox Automotive, 487,460 EVs were sold in 2021. While that only accounts for 9.7-percent of all the vehicles sold last year, that still represents a 79.9-percent increase compared to 2020. The situation for EVs is vastly different in Norway, however, where nearly nine out of 10 new cars sold last month were EVs.

Drag Race: In A Surprising Turn Of Events, A BMW M340i Beats The Tesla Model 3 Performance P3 Fair-And-Square!

You don’t see an EV get beaten convincingly by an internal combustion-engined car too often these days

If the recent history is to go by anything, EVs always destroy internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip. The Tesla Model S Plaid led this charge and has destroyed many beloved supercars since it came out. So, naturally, when we heard about a Tesla Model 3 Performance P3 taking on a BMW M340i, we assumed it would slaughter the latter with ease. But, in a surprising plot twist, the BMW M340i didn’t just manage to hold its ground, it actually defeated the EV in every race comprehensively. However, there was a reason why it was able to do so…

What is the Cheapest Tesla?

Tesla’s cheapest offering is the Model 3 which retails from $38,990. The car comes with a very clean cabin with almost no buttons at all, a 15-inch touchscreen that dominates the center console, and a spacious cabin overall. The standard range trim offers you 220 miles on a full charge, whereas the Long Range offers 310 miles on a single charge. The latter trim takes 5.1 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from a standstill before losing breath at 140 mph.

What is the Sportiest Tesla?

Tesla has a spectacular range of products, but the Roadster is clearly the sportiest product from the stable. It has been in news ever since its launch back in 2007. The Roadster boasts some ridiculous figures, such as 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, a top speed of 250 mph, and can cover 620 miles on a single charge. Interestingly, Musk sent his Roadster in outer space as part of the Space X project. In other news, Musk also said that the car will come with rocket thrusters. If this is not sporty, I don’t know what is.

What is the Most Popular Tesla?

The Model 3 is the most popular Tesla. The American startup sold over 10,000 examples of it in April 2019. It is also the cheapest model in the company’s range.

What is the Most Expensive Tesla?

Tesla has redefined the EV segment with not just quality electric products that are good for a daily commute, but are also a hoot and a half to drive. However, this comes at a price. The company’s Model S Performance retails at $90,115, whereas the Model S Performance trim is priced at $95,115. TheModel X Performance is the fastest production SUV, as it takes just 2.7 seconds to touch 60 mph from a standstill. It has also attained the highest safety ratings ever.

What is the Fastest Tesla?

The Model S P100D in Ludicrous Model is the fastest mainstream vehicle from the stable when it goes all guns blazing. The car takes merely 2.4 seconds to reach the 60 mph mark and can go all way up to 163 mph. It comes with an all-wheel-drive system and can go up to 340 miles on a single charge. The Model S takes just 15 min to replenish the battery with enough energy to cover 130 miles.

Are Tesla Cars Reliable?

Despite boasting some amazing crash test ratings, which generally instils a certain amount of faith in the brand, Tesla is actually not known for its long term reliability. The company offers four years warranty on the car and eight years on the battery, but was ranked 27th out of 29 automakers by Consumer Reports in 2018. Tesla has a habit of changing the hardware and the software on a frequent basis and that fluctuates the reliability to a large extent.
