No, The Tesla Model 3 Isn’t Cheaper Than Expected

A Tesla spokesperson confirmed today that the official price for the all-electric affordable Tesla Model 3 sedan will be $35,000 before incentives, and way cheaper with incentives when it goes on sale. That’s something to get excited about, sure—if we didn’t already know all of this months ago.

Elon Musk’s next great idea? An electric jet that can take off and land vertically

Elon Musk Electric Jet

Elon Musk is changing the world one idea at a time. First, with Tesla, the man so many people call the real life Tony Stark has done an incredible job of bringing electric vehicles to the mainstream. Second, Musk has been doing an impressive job over at SpaceX in the realm of space travel. And third, Musk's effective rough draft of a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop is being contemplated and conceptualized in a very real way by some extremely smart people.

Elon Musk Cancels Blogger’s Model X Order Because He Bitched About Event

Owning your own car company has a lot of little-considered benefits: all the slightly-damaged car seats you want for napping, easy access to stacks of tires to build forts, and the ability to cancel any customer’s order just because you don’t like them. Guess which one Elon Musk just took advantage of?

Tesla’s Model X Falcon Door Mechanical Issues Are Now Legal Issues

It’s easy to forget that the Tesla Model X was intended to start deliveries back in early 2014. Now Tesla faces a legal battle after dropping one of its parts suppliers during development for issues with effectively engineering the “falcon” door system, in part delaying the launch of the electric SUV.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk discusses Apple’s upcoming electric car

Elon Musk Apple's Car Project

Elon Musk sure is keeping busy this week. Following up on his remarks that Tesla in two years time might have a vehicle capable of driving itself from coast to coast, the outspoken CEO appeared on BBC where he spoke candidly on a number of topics.

One of the more interesting exchanges occurred when Musk was asked about Apple's rumored foray into the car industry. Rather than viewing Apple as a competitive threat, Musk said that he gladly welcomes any all newcomers who want to help accelerate a shift towards electric vehicle adoption.

Elon Musk says it’s an “open secret” Apple is making an electric car, will be “compelling”

elon-musk1-e1445185617305 (1)

During an interview at Tesla’s design Studio in Los Angeles, Tesla CEO Elon Musk commented on Apple’s rumored electric vehicle program, codenamed “Project Titan“. It was hardly the first time the CEO commented on the project, but it always interesting to hear about the possibility of Apple bringing an electric car to market. This time Musk called the project under-development an “open secret” and agreed that Apple is “serious about it.”

While talking with BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones about Apple’s rumored car, Musk said:

“It’s pretty hard to hide something if you hire over a thousand engineers to do it.”

Reports came out last year of a so-called “poaching war” between Tesla and Apple over automotive engineers. Following the reports, Musk didn’t have eulogistic words for Apple’s new hires:

“They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the ‘Tesla Graveyard.’ If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple.”

The next day Musk took to Twitter to soften his comments about the company:

During the BBC interview, Musk reiterated his content that Apple is jumping in the EV industry, which is in line with Tesla’s mission to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. As usual, he warned of the difficulty of building an electric vehicle, but this time he added some optimism to what Apple could bring to market:

“Companies like Apple will probably make a compelling electric car.”

Musk’s comment about Project Titan being an “open secret” in the industry follows a recent report confirming that Apple registered three new car-themed domain names, which just keep adding to the evidence that Apple is developing an electric vehicle.

Elon Musk: Tesla cars will be able to drive themselves from New York to LA by 2018

Elon Musk Tesla Self Driving Cars

Elon Musk's vision for the future is bold and ambitious, and much to his credit, the Tesla CEO doesn't shy away from making brazen predictions that other CEOs would be too embarrassed to express publicly.

During a conference call with reporters on Sunday, and originally recapped by The Verge, Musk said flat-out that Tesla's new Summon feature may soon enable its fleet of Model S and Model X vehicles to drive themselves all the way from New York to Los Angeles. As we reported over the weekend, Tesla's latest software update includes Summon, a mode which lets users park and retrieve their cars even with no one inside it. Of course, as a new feature emblazoned with a Beta tag, the feature in its current form only works up to a distance of 39 feet.
