  1. For years, Tesla, as well as its eccentric founder and CEO Elon Musk, proudly proclaimed to recent customers that if they were unhappy with the vehicle they had just purchased, they could simply return it. The catch? Hardly anything. It just had to be done within seven calendar days. That was then. Now, as reported by Electrek, recent Tesla customers experiencing buyer’s remorse over their new vehicle may just be stuck with it. In other words, it probably won’t be that easy to return it. Electrek reports that Tesla eliminated its seven-day return policy, which the com
  2. (Reuters) - Tesla Inc said on Tuesday it cut the price of its Model S “Long Range” sedan by 4% in the United States, days after the electric-car maker reported record quarterly deliveries. A Tesla Model S electric vehicle drives along a row of occupied superchargers at Tesla's primary vehicle factory after CEO Elon Musk announced he was defying local officials' restrictions against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by reopening the plant in Fremont, California, U.S. May 12, 2020. The company, which is expected to report third-quarter results on Oct. 21, cut the p
  3. Tesla delivers 140,000 vehicles, smashing previous records Tesla needs to grow rapidly to justify its astronomical share price. Enlarge Ars Technica 125 with 55 posters participating In recent months, Tesla skeptics have argued that the company's growth had stalled. After delivering a record-breaking 83,500 vehicles in the third quarter of 2018, the company's deliveries grew only modestly in the next few quarters: 97,000 in the third quarter of 2019, for example, and 90,650 in the second quarter of 2020.
  4. Tesla aims to build its most affordable electric car yet within the next three years, with Elon Musk suggesting a $25,000 EV would be possible. The promise came during the Tesla Battery Day 2020 event, an opportunity for Musk & Co. to set the scene for where battery technology is today, and where the automaker believes it will be in the coming years. It’s an important topic as, while exceedingly fast electric cars might make headlines, it’s battery capacity and production bottlenecks that control factors like affordability and supply. Tesla, Musk said today, aims to expan

  10. Musk: Tesla may be able to produce batteries with 50% more energy density Tesla CEO Elon Musk has suggested that the automaker may be able to produce batteries with 50% more energy density within three to four years. This news comes ahead of the firm's "Battery Day" event where it is expected to reveal improvement in its battery performance. According to researchers, the energy density of Panasonic's "2170" batteries that Tesla uses in its Model 3 cars is roughly 260Wh/kg, which would mark a 50% surge from current energy density. Ba

Tesla wants to use its car sensors to detect children left in hot cars But it's going to need approval (Image credit: Tesla) The latest safety feature planned at Tesla is a sensing system that can warn you if you've left a child behind in a car that's too hot. As an added bonus, it could customize airbag deployment to each particular passenger, and deter thieves as well.

  13. Panasonic aims to increase Tesla battery capacity by 20% In an exclusive with Reuters, Panasonic has said that it aims to increase the energy density of its '2170' battery cells by 20% in five years. The 2170 battery cells are the type that it supplies to Tesla meaning that those vehicles are set to be able to travel further on a single charge. In addition to having a longer charge, Panasonic is aiming to put a cobalt-free version of the battery on the market between 2022 and 2024. According to Reuters, cutting out cobalt from batteries could cut costs which

  20. (Reuters) - Top Wall Street brokerages Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley downgraded their ratings on Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) saying the electric carmaker’s shares were overpriced, two days after the high-flying stock crossed $1,000 per share. The brokerages, while reiterating that their long-term view on the stock remains positive, noted the current valuation underestimates risks including increased competition in the electric vehicle industry. Top automakers including General Motors Co (GM.N) and Ford Motor Co (F.N) have doubled down on their investments in the

  24. Tesla Autopilot could potentially start detecting traffic lights in the future Earlier this month, Tesla manufactured its 1,000,000th electric car. One of the most popular (and controversial) features in its cars is perhaps 'Autopilot'. Autopilot is already capable of spotting other cars and obstructions like traffic cones on the road. However, it now seems like it will be able to spot the state of traffic lights and act accordingly in a potential future update as well.
