Tesla Announced Free Charger and Free Installation in China Market

When you purchase a Tesla Model S in US, it only comes with a free mobile connector as standard. This mobile connector only lets you charge your Model S using the regular 110V household outlet, provides 29 miles of range per hour.


If you want to charge the Model S faster, you need to use Tesla’s Wall Connector, which is installed on a 240 volt circuit, and supplies up to twice the amperage as a regular 110V outlet. However for US market this is not free: it cost you $750 for the parts, plus the installation labor.

Jaguar Is Considering F-Pace EV, Direct Compete with Tesla Model X

When talking about electric vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is definitely not a newbie in the market.


In fact, JLR has mastered the latest electric powertrain technologies 5 years ago: back in the 2010 Paris motor show, Jaguar has debuted the C-X75 plug-in concept, which uses 4 electric motors to drive the 4 wheels respectively. The power comes from a battery pack. One very distinct feature of the C-X75 is: the battery pack is charged by two gas turbine engine (something similar to the turboprop engine on airplanes).

Tesla Model X delayed, Again?

Model X hopefully not “X’d”

Yesterday,Tesla announced in a letter to shareholders for the 2014 Q3 that the delivery of the Model X will yet AGAIN be pushed back to third quarter of 2015 (see page 4 of the attached letter).


In fact this isn’t the first time, or second time the electric car company delayed the Model X delivery. At the very beginning, they said it will deliver the Model X in 2013, then later postponed to to late 2014, then again the time was moved to early 2015, and today we know the new time is “promised” to be 2015 Q3. We are not sure whether this is the final date. Let’s just hoping that Tesla is not going to “X” this project.

I do not know how other peo...
