This Might Be the Edgiest Tesla Upgrade Yet


Design-wise, it’s hard to find fault with the Tesla Model S. Its looks are sophisticated, clean, and safe…maybe too safe. Thankfully, one UK startup has taken the Tesla’s subdued design, and given it an edgy upgrade. Continue Reading »

Is the Tesla Model X P90D More Powerful than Model S P90D?


Being an SUV, it might seem that the Model X would be a slower car than the quarter-mile happy Model S sedan. After all, the newest Tesla is a little over 600 pounds heavier, has the same electric motors, and the same amount of power. But some new stats paint a different picture of the two electric vehicles.

Tesla, Please Build this Model R Hypercar


We won’t string you along; this stunning shape is not the latest creation of Tesla Motors’ electric vehicle design center, but we wish it were. Rather, this sleek hypercar shape is the design work of UK graphic artist Khyzyl Saleem, and it’s frankly extraordinary. On Facebook, Saleem notes that the California-based EV automaker has yet to offer a true supercar or hypercar model, despite previously selling the Tesla Roadster sports car. Continue Reading »

Traditionally, “fun” cars haven’t always been practical. The inverse is also true, “practical” cars aren’t always fun, though there are exceptions.

Chevrolet ‘Jolt’ Makes the Case For An Affordable Electric Coupe

TRU 140S, one of Chevrolet's concept vehicles from the 2012 North American International Auto Show is a front-wheel-drive, “affordable exotic” four-seat sporty coupe. The sleek, sculptural, three door hatchback TRU 140S was designed to be an attractive yet affordable sports car. Shown with matte white with Chevy performance chrome wheels with crossflag emblems, the TRU 140S looks confident, expensive and fast.

Yesterday someone with too much time on their hands launched a website dedicated to the new Chevrolet Jolt EV (ChevyJoltEV.com).
