Interview to Elon Musk and Todd Howard

Interesting interview to Elon and Todd Howard (The Elder Scrolls, Fallout) about games and Tesla. This interview includes a first look at Cuphead and Beach Buggy Racing 2 running on a Model 3. If you are into games at all, I recommend you to check it out!

Ride along with Tesla Mobile Service and fix some electric cars

Tesla Mobile Service is a great idea and in addition to being very convenient, it allows Tesla to scale their service without the need of real state. A couple of interesting points in the video:

  • Tesla is going to start using Model X for bigger jobs
  • 30% of airbag recalls are handled by Mobile Service

Enjoy the ride along and watch the video on Youtube

How much does it cost to charge a Tesla?

“Compare The Market” offers a very general overview of electricity rates and calculates how much it would cost to charge up a Tesla. All calculations are based on a MS with a 100 kWh battery charge & 259 miles per charge. The cheapest country is Chile where it costs $2.70 per 100 miles. The most expensive is Denmark where it costs $13.13 per 100 miles.

I turned my Tesla into a pickup truck

This video has been all over the Internet during the past two days. A Model 3 owner decided to modify her Model 3 and convert it in a pickup truck. This for sure is nothing like the future Tesla pickup truck (expected to be unveiled this summer) but it requires some serious skill and it’s the kind of content that we, at Tesletter, really love. Really impressive Simone!

What the acronym?

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • M3 - Model 3
  • MS - Model S
  • MX - Model X
  • AP - Autopilot
  • RFID - Radio Frequency Identification

Because we 💚 Tesla

Our Model S rocks so much that we designed some sweet t-shirts to go with it. Check out all of our designs at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tesletter
