Tesla CEO Continues to Hammer NYT over Model S Report

Feb 15 2013, 12:30pm CST | by

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.

IRS won't, or can't, reveal how many plug-in vehicle tax credits are left

Sep 18 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, AutoblogGreen Exclusive The IRS has set up a page to help track individual automaker sales figures, but it's a complete mess. One of the benefits of driving a plug-in vehicle these days is a federal tax credit worth up to $7,500. Officially called IRC 30D, this credit is intended to make the high cost of new EVs sting less for early adopters. Of course, free government money doesn't last forever, and when the tax credit law was first pa ...

Nissan Leaf + Nissan Frontier = The World’s Only Zero-Emissions Leafamino

Sep 18 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Here’s some evidence that the engineers at Nissan’s technical center in Stanfield, Arizona, know how to have fun. As shown by the Nissan-supplied video below, that group needed a hauler to help them shuttle stuff around the grounds, and while they could have just used an old Titan or Frontier, they instead chose to build something far, far more rad. Working in the secrecy of a garage somewhere on the premises, durability and reliability engineers Roland Schellenberg and Arnold Moulinet ...
