Tesla Model X v Lamborghini Aventador S drag - video

We know the Tesla Model X P100D is very, very quick off the line. It recently won a drag race against its super-SUV rivals, but there's always something faster and more powerful ready to race. With 450kW on tap from its four electric motors, and something called Ludicrous Mode, the Model X is a proper straight-line weapon, but it's up against some serious metal this time around...

Tesla Australia to add CCS chargers to support Model 3

Tesla Australia has announced it will upgrade its Supercharger network with Combined Charging System (CCS) plugs, in order to support the upcoming Model 3 sedan.

Jaguar I-Pace vs Tesla Model X drag race - video

Jaguar made headlines with an I-Pace vs Model X drag race when its new, all-electric SUV was revealed earlier this year. The first mass-produced Jaguar electric vehicle comfortably accounted for the Tesla Model X 75D and 100D, but the P100D (you know, the really fast one) was a notable absentee...

Tesla Model X: Autopilot could be at fault in fatal accident

A preliminary report from the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says Autopilot may have steered toward the dividing barrier on US Highway 101 before a fatal accident involving a Tesla Model X earlier this year.
