Tesla Model 3 bumper ripped off during storm

The rear bumper of a Tesla Model 3 was torn off during a storm in Florida earlier this month, once again bringing the build quality of the US-made electric vehicles under scrutiny. Logan Derouanna, who owns the damaged vehicle, told carscoops.com he was decelerating while attempting to change lanes – in heavy rain – when he heard a “huge noise,” and eventually discovered the rear bumper had torn loose, possibly from a build-up of water.

Tesla logs record first quarter in 2020, despite tough conditions

Tesla has bucked the trend of falling sales amid the coronavirus pandemic, logging their biggest-ever first-quarter on record. While also logging 103,000 builds in the first three months of 2020, Tesla has reported 88,400 deliveries in the same quarter. This marks a 43 per cent increase compared to 2019 figures. Tesla broke the sales down, with new Model 3 and Model Y accounting for 76,200 deliveries, while the older and more expensive Model S and Model X made up the remaining 12,200.

Tesla Model 3 to get air suspension option – report

If you want to buy a new Tesla Model S or Model X in Australia, you’re only able to specify one with adaptive air suspension. Model 3 buyers, however, don’t have that option… yet. Electrek reports it should be coming very soon, a leaked parts catalogue appearing to confirm its imminent introduction to the Model 3 line. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, however, has contacted Electrek to refute the pending introduction of the feature.
