Your Tesla Is About To Become Autonomous

Earlier this week, we heard billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk describe his vision for the future of self-driving vehicles. Turns out, when Musk said “we’ll be there in a few years,” what he actually meant was, his company, Tesla, will be there this summer. Slip of the tongue.


Tesla Almost Drove The Model S 1300km Without Touching The Wheel

Tesla Model S 6.1 Australian Hands On: New Software Means This Car Practically Drives Itself

The best feature of the Tesla Model S isn’t what you think it would be. It’s not the insane acceleration, the luxurious interior or even that massive screen it’s packing. It’s the fact that if you buy one, you’re driving a rolling piece of tech that can be updated and made better with new software over time. I test drove the new software last weekend, which includes the funky Autopilot feature. The result? A Model S that essentially drives itself.

Elon Musk On Why We Need A Carbon Tax

Billionaire Elon Musk has a few things on the boil at the moment. He’s revolutionising how we all get around with Tesla electric supercars, SpaceX reusable rockets and an experimental Hyperloop, while also working on a plan to launch a Mars colony running in the background. Needless to say, he’s a real-life billionaire/genius/playboy/philanthropist. At a recent press conference, he was asked if governments should put a price on carbon, and his answer is incredibly sensible.


The Tesla Model S Is A Supercar For The Snow

Elon Musk is having a chatty day on Twitter again. In between talking SpaceX and drone rockets, he shared a video of a Tesla Motors Model S showing off a pretty impressive feat — but it’s not a feat of speed or of electric range.
