Subaru extended the warranty when they learned they had a problem. Tesla slashed theirs. That’s the difference between Tesla and other car companies, right there.

Yeah, I was surprised not to completely hate the look of this thing. It’s grandiose and over the top, but it doesn’t look like it wants to actually murder me—unlike, say, a Silverado with its brick-smashed mouth-wound of a front fascia. I didn’t realize that they had gone with a space exploration theme here, but now Read more

I really like the dash buttons, even if (or especially if) they aren’t necessarily evocative of their supposed inspiration. The boot print for a dead pedal is cute. The moon map on the speaker grille is an idea that should have been left on the cutting room floor.

Especially the short haul vehicles like Dump Trucks, they’re classified differently than big rigs and are usually very bad for the environment.

I used to work with a big Tesla stan and when I told him I was looking for a new car he tried to tell me that a Tesla would pay for itself in gas savings. Read more

Except perhaps in the rapidly diminishing minority of places that still get most of their power from coal, a new EV is better for the environment than a new ICE vehicle, even accounting for resource extraction and power generation. Read more
