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.

Bioweapon Experts Aren’t Buying the Tesla Model X’s Bioweapon Defense Mode 

The air conditioning system in the new Tesla Model X has three modes: circulating air from outside the car, re-circulating air that’s already inside the cabin, and a “bioweapon defense mode,” triggered by a button on the dashboard, which creates positive pressure inside the cabin to keep outside particles at bay. So, does it work? We asked bioweapons experts for their take on Tesla’s panic button.

Tesla hires head Apple recruiter after losing own recruiter to Apple Car team

Tesla has taken its recruiting of Apple employees to the next level: the electric car and energy company has hired away Apple’s Senior Director of Corporate Recruiting, Cindy Nicola, to become Tesla’s new Vice President of Global Recruiting. Nicola has already noted her now role and start month of May on her LinkedIn profile.

Notably, Apple actually hired away Tesla’s Lead Recruiter in 2014 for its own electric car project, as we noted in our extensive profile of Apple’s automotive related hires. Interestingly, that former Tesla recruiter Lauren Ciminera has already left Apple to work on a new “confidential” project, according to her own LinkedIn page and confirmation from a source…

As a car and energy company with manufacturing, engineering, and advanced software technologies at its core, Tesla has publicly poached several notable employees from Apple over the past few years. In 2013, Tesla hired Apple’s Vice President of Mac Hardware Engineering, Doug Field, to help lead car engineering, while several other Apple user-interface, software engineering, retail, and hardware engineering directors have also left for Tesla.

For his part, Elon Musk has been very open about recruiting from Apple, noting that his company poaches 5 times as many employees from Apple as Apple does from Tesla.  With Tesla now employing Apple’s former recruiting lead, perhaps Tesla will start to look even more like Apple in the near-future.

Tesla Unveils The Model X, An Electric CUV With Futuristic Gullwing-like Doors

full40

Tesla Motors’family is growing. The company just unveiled its first crossover, the Model X. Like the Roadster and Model S, the Model X is a purely electric vehicle, built on the same platform as the Model S. Tesla says pricing will be similar to that of the Model S, making the base model around $50k after tax credits. But, if all the available options are checked including the largest battery pack and performance drivetrain, the price could close in on $90k. But who cares about the price when the vehicle packs gullwing-like doors — Tesla calls them Falcon Wings, but you can call them awesome.

The Model X is built on the same skateboard platform as the Model S. This shared design allows the for the relatively affordable price. The CUV will come in both rear- and four-wheel-drive flavors with the 4-wheel drive model packing independent electric motors at each axle. Since the larger Model X will use the battery system as the Model S, Tesla says the range on the 40-, 60- and 85-kWh battery packs will be about 10% less.


If the Falcon Wings didn’t convince you the Model X was from the future, just look at the center console. Like the Model S, the Model X employes a massive touchscreen for the infotainment display and climate controls.

Space is abundant in the Model X. Since there isn’t a traditional engine, the Model X has a front and rear storage space. Elon Musk bragged at the unveiling that there’s enough room in the front storage compartment as the Audi Q7 has in the rear.

Tesla is now taking reservations for the Model X. But you’re going to be waiting a while. Tesla doesn’t expect production to begin until 2014.
