Clean car clash.

California is an EV heaven and it looks like it is getting a little crowded. An autonomous Nissan Leaf crashed into a parked Toyota Prius in San Francisco. The technology did not come from Nissan, and the best part was that the crash occurred after the human driver took over the steering wheel. Great save!

Reading tip: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” the word of Neil Armstrong echo somewhere in the back of the mind when looking at Pavegen Systems and its vision to generate electricity wherever humans put their feet. The latest project could see London’s busy Oxford Street be paved with enough energy generating tiles to power a Tesla.

Tesla Model S P85D, Forze VI.

Video tip 1: Consumer Report once called the standard Tesla Model S the best car out there – that was before they tested the all-wheel drive variant! And what could be a better way to start testing the car than stepping into it to see how well the AWD Tesla accelerates?

Video tip 2: Students of the Delft University in the Netherlands have tested their hydrogen racer on a closed circuit. The Forze VI has a top speed of 130 mph and goes from 0 to 62 mph in under 4 seconds.

GM dealership experience, Tesla Model S P85D vs. Ferrari F12.

Reading tip: There are many ways to compare electric cars. Brooke Crothers chose to put the dealer experience to the test. While he does love his Volt, one wonders how he got to own one, as GM dealers seem anything but keen to sell the EV, esp. when compared to the futuristic Tesla stores.

Video tip: This new challenge for Tesla comes in the form of a drag race against a Ferrari F12. Well, Ferrari’s 730 hp versus Tesla’s 691 hp make all the difference in the long(er) run.

Holy Moly.

Much has been said and shown about the accelerative power of the Tesla Model S P85D but this video puts electric power to a new use. Watch this iPhone being “glued” to the back seat when stomping the acceleration pedal. What is that good for? Just because…

Tesla goes insane.

Just 2.8 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph? If you believe the rumours based on informations from Tesla insiders, a new firmware update will give the Model S P85D the extra boost to make the “insane mode” even more insane. How insane that already is, can be seen in the video below.

Reading tip: ‘ElectraGirl’ took the chance to test drive the new Tesla Model S P85D and got mixed feelings about it. While not being a fan of the “insanely fast” acceleration that so excited her co-drivers, at her own speed this electric car is a definite “want.”
