Tesla Is Losing Money But Making More Cars

Despite losing money last quarter, Tesla shares are still up after their earnings report. Why? Because the company is beating estimates on how many cars it will be able to produce.

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.

Summon your Tesla Model S using only your Apple Watch [Video]

apple watch summon model s

Last month Tesla released its latest ‘Autopilot’ update (v7.1), which we covered intensively on Electrek, but if you are not up-to-date with Tesla’s latest software, the Model S’ Autopilot now includes a new feature called ‘Summon’, which allows Tesla owners to remotely move their vehicle without anyone in it.

At the moment, it is primarily used to get the Model S in and out of a garage easily, but in the future, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says you will be able to summon your car from across the country and it will come meet you while charging at Tesla Superchargers along the way.

Yesterday, less than a month after the wide release of the Summon feature, iOS developer Allen Wong from Rego Apps updated his popular ‘Remote S for Tesla‘ app to allow Model S owners to use the Summon feature with the Apple Watch.

We reported on Wong’s app before, when he managed to start his Model S using Siri on his Apple Watch.

With the latest update to Remote S, not only does the Summon feature work on the Apple Watch — something not possible with Tesla’s official app — but Wong managed to get around the feature’s 39 feet range limitation.

A Tesla currently equipped with the Autopilot hardware needs to be within 39 feet of its final parking spot for the Summon feature to work. In the release note, Wong says that you do not have the same limitation when using the Remote S app, but a recent test shows that the keyfob still needs to be within range of the vehicle.

Update: Allen jumped in the comments and confirmed that if you press the ‘Keyless Start’ button before using the Summon feature, it will remove the need for the keyfob to be near the car.

Watch Model S own Mark Schey try the feature:

You can get the Remote S for Tesla app on the App Store for $10.

No, Elon Musk Did Not Really Steal This Guy’s Tesla

An article titled How Elon Musk Stole My Car certainly suggests some things. Things like, maybe Elon Musk stole a dude’s car. It’s safe to say Musk doesn’t really fit the carjacker profile, so what’s going on here, exactly? Did Elon Musk steal a guy’s car, or is this an aggrandized misunderstanding?

Tesla Model S’ new ‘Summon’ feature lets drivers park and retrieve their cars with no one inside

Tesla Model S Software Update

Tesla earlier today began pushing out version 7.1 of its software to Model S and Model X owners and, suffice it to say, it's a doozy of a software update.

While we'll get to the full changelog shortly, we first wanted to highlight a feature called Summon which enables users to park their cars without having to be inside it. Conversely, it also lets Tesla owners summon their cars that already happen to be parked.
