Tesla police car nearly runs out of power during chase

  Tesla police car nearly runs out of power during chase A Fremont, California, police official said that the department still has full faith in the pilot program.The East Bay Times newspaper reported that a Fremont police officer in the Tesla Model S, which the department bought in March, became involved in a police pursuit Friday but radioed dispatch to say that the electric vehicle warned that it had only 6 miles of battery life left and that he may not be able to continue in the chase.

That 's given the 2020 Model 3 a chance to scoop up the crown, and per the EPA website, it did just that with the latest snapshot of ratings from the electric car . The EPA estimates the Model 3 will return 141 mpge combined. Not only does that best the new Ioniq, but it still takes the title from the outgoing

The Tesla Model 3 efficiency is outstanding, making it a great EV for highway trips. According to EPA highway efficiency ratings, Tesla Model 3 efficiency in highway conditions (123 MPGe) is better even than that of the Hyundai Ioniq (122 MPGe), a much smaller, lighter, and less powerful EV with

Step aside, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, there's a new efficiency champ in town. EPA estimates have officially made the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range-Plus the most efficient electric car on sale in the US today.

This is an accolade that doesn't get nearly as much attention as electric range or power. The EPA uses a rating called miles per gallon equivalent to show how efficient electric cars and plug-in hybrids are, since they (obviously) don't drink fossil fuels. It's the distance a car can travel electrically on the amount of energy contained in one gallon of gasoline.

Turns out Tesla police cars run out of 'gas' mid-chase, too

  Turns out Tesla police cars run out of 'gas' mid-chase, too If you're a cop involved in a high-speed pursuit, the last thing you want to see on your dash is a notification that your car is about to run out of gas -- or in the case of one Fremont police officer, battery life. But that's what happened to Officer Jesse Hartman last week when his department's Tesla Model S patrol car warned him it had just six miles of battery left -- in the midst of a 120mph felony chase down the highway. Radioing to fellowRadioing to fellow officers nearby, Hartman said "I am down to six miles of battery on the Tesla so I may lose it here in a sec," before asking his colleagues to manuever into position instead.

Tesla doesn’t do model years like most makers, as it is continuously updating its cars for efficiencies and additional features. The Tesla Model 3 is the first vehicle built on Tesla 's third-generation platform. It aims to reduce the entry price for electric vehicles while not making any compromise on

Tesla confirmed 8,180 Model 3 vehicles delivered during the first quarter 2018. That ’s over twice as many as the next best- selling all- electric car in Both those ranges are significantly below Model 3 deliveries, but easily over Chevy Bolt EV sales. In conclusion, the Tesla Model 3 is now officially the

In this area, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric has long been the king, with an EPA-estimated mpge rating of 136 mpge combined. Hyundai , however, has dropped a bigger battery in the electric car for 2020. While that boosts range to 170 miles (up from 124 miles), it drops efficiency to 133 mpge combined, as new motors also increase power from 118 to 134 horsepower.

2020 Hyundai Ioniq is available in many flavors

That's given the 2020 Model 3 a chance to scoop up the crown, and per the EPA website, it did just that with the latest snapshot of ratings from the electric car. The EPA estimates the Model 3 will return 141 mpge combined. Not only does that best the new Ioniq, but it still takes the title from the outgoing model, too.

Tesla shares tumble after delivering a record 97,000 vehicles in third quarter that fell short of forecasts

  Tesla shares tumble after delivering a record 97,000 vehicles in third quarter that fell short of forecasts Musk set expectations high again this quarter, telling employees in a recent email that the company "has a shot" at delivering 100,000 cars, which would set a new record. Shares of Tesla jumped more than 5% after electric vehicle news website Electrek reported the email last week.This year, Tesla began sales and deliveries to customers in further reaches than ever before. It now sells electric vehicles in China, Australia, Taiwan, the UK, and several markets through Eastern Europe, including in Poland and Hungary.Tesla ships its cars from the U.S.

Tesla : Vehicles Model 3 . I really doubt any connection but we'll know for sure as summer passes or Tesla fixes the vampire drain. For now I can say with some confidence that my drain is about the same the same day I commute or during the days that the car sits at average ambient in the high 70s F.

In addition to becoming the best- selling car by overall revenue, the Tesla Model 3 outsold entire luxury brands by car units In the most recent company update, Elon Musk claims Q3 production Industry watchers beware: the Tesla Model 3 is the car that will bring electric vehicles into the mainstream.

If you're a little lost in the mpge talk, let me make it super simple: The Tesla Model 3 will go an estimated 141 miles on the amount of energy a single gallon of gas contains. Thats, quite frankly, incredible to think about as most sedans will do a few dozen miles per gallon.

Of course, the Ioniq Electric is still a fine choice for those looking to ease into the electric lifestyle -- and far more affordable than a Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which starts at just shy of $40,000. The Ioniq Electric starts at $31,245, though that's 2019 model year pricing. The 2020 model, aside from its battery upgrade and new motors, will get new equipment, too, so the price may increase. Whatever the cost, the car is eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit as well; Tesla's tax credits are nearly gone.
