Tesla CEO Continues to Hammer NYT over Model S Report

NYT and Tesla are still going at it over the Model S

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the New York Times continue to go round and round with Musk alleging that a recent report of the Model S was faked and the New York Times continue to assert that the review was factual. Musk has provided logs from the vehicle that he feels prove that the New York Times writer behind the wheel of the vehicle, John Broder, faked some his findings put down in the story.

The row stems from Broder testing the Model S electric car on a trip from Washington DC to Connecticut. Rather than being a specific review of the vehicle, the test was more geared towards trying out two sets of high-speed charging stations that Tesla has installed in Newark, Delaware in Milford Connecticut. The stations are space 200 miles apart for people traveling between Washington and Boston.

Broder set off on a cold day and the crux of his report was that the vehicle failed to make the distance between the two charging stations. Broder claims that he fully charge the vehicle and drove conservatively. Musk on the other hand says that the vehicle logs show the battery was charged full capacity and that the driver took a detour further depleting the cars battery.

General Pedaler: GM Introduces Free Bike Sharing Program at Michigan Tech Center

Sep 1 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Look out, Google: Enough General Motors employees wanted to arrive at meetings covered in sweat that the company has introduced a bike-sharing program. Okay, a desire for damp, winded employees probably had less to do with GM’s decision than the rising popularity of active-workplace programs, but still—up here in Michigan, it’s pretty warm outside. Employees can now pedal across 330 acres of GM’s technical center in Warren, Michi ...
