Tesla Is a Jail Free Card?

In May, one man lost his life driving Tesla Model S. Autopilot option was turned on at the moment of the accident. Journalists are blaming an autopilot option, the autopilot option is directly connected to the technology advancement, the technology advancement is connected to the company’s shares and company’s shares are connected to the development of their products, the green energy products. On the other hand, green energy is not so popular in the industry. Why?

After the May 7th accident, there were a couple of other crashes, luckily without any casualties. There were some broken windows, fences, doors, mirrors and other cars. The only victims of those crashes were the wallets of the drivers. Those drivers bought Tesla Model S and Model X, some out of curiosity, others out of their love towards EVs and the rest of them… well because “why not?”. The sad thing is that those drivers or owners tried to blame the Tesla Motors for their accidents. To be precise, there were three accidents in the last two weeks, in which drivers tried to get a “Jail Free” card. Neither of them told the truth. Their sincerity came to question after Tesla Motors had reviewed their Model X’s logs.

One Model X owner hit the “gas” pedal while trying to stop on the parking place, thus continued to the building wall. He claimed that the car autonomously crashed. Logs say that the accelerator pedal was pressed manually prior to the accident.

The other Model X driver successfully rolled the unrollable car by hitting the guard rail. The accident happened on the Pennsylvania Turnpike on July the 1şt. The driver claimed that the autopilot option was activated. Cars rolling and tumbling in accidents are not rare, but rolling over the car so heavy is very hard. You need to travel very fast in order to do that, and logs in Tesla Motors show that the driver hit the accelerator pedal to 100% just before the accident.

The third tried to drive a car on autopilot, with sensors, on a road without a central divider. That one happened on July the 10th. The driver claimed that autopilot suddenly changed the trajectory, turned off the road, causing the car to hit the guard rail and completely destroy the right side of the car. Autopilot is not autonomous driving. You need to look the road. Every time there is a flaw in lane markers, the autopilot will disengage…

I will try to be gentle on this one.

To make some things straight. I am writing to you now. Yes, you. You live in a world of hunger and thirst in one part and food waste and water pollution in the other part of the world. You are lucky enough to afford one of the most expensive vehicles on the planet. When you buy it, a company that produces those vehicles gives you the fuel (charging capabilities) for free and it develops your vehicle through days, months and years via updates for free. You practically began to live in a futuristic world, the day you bought that vehicle.

One day, your car says:”Listen bub, I have just been updated to an Autopilot Beta Stage. From now on, I can assist you in driving. Have a nice day”. You go crazy, start telling your friends and it is a good life.

Summer 2016. You wake up cheerfully singing, said hello to your family and asked your car to get out of the garage by itself and to wait for you in front of your door. Then you had breakfast and brushed your teeth. In the meantime, your car opened the garage doors, slowly checked its surroundings and compliantly went to your door and waited for you to come outside. You drove in that same car, looked at all the pretty things around you, and just as you reached to your bags on the back seat, some strange wall appeared in front of you out of nowhere, and you crashed. Immediately, you remembered that you can blame the “autopilot” option and get around the insurance stuff.

In spite that you can harm the company that was so good for you, that you have the best possible car that anyone can afford, you lie and blame the pioneer manufacturer that had brought to you all that futuristic things you have.

“Shame, shame, shame.”

Actually, that is just the tip of the iceberg. In the depth of the cold ocean beneath you, you can find the monsters that can actually harm that same company. You are the one that anyone can see, you are the instigator.

Others that support your actions are not seen by many.

Oil

The World in which we live in is built around fossil fuels. Whether we want to acknowledge or not, wars have been fought because of it. We travel on the wings of oil, we farm our lands on the hoofs soaked into oil and we distribute our food in chariots that go on oil. Oil has become the strongest power one country has. If you control oil, you control the power.
People that control oil roads.

Humans, animals, and plants live on this planet. Only a dozen of people control all of them. How did they get all that power? Well, by trading oil. They are at the beginning of this chain, and if they didn’t do that, somebody else would.

Industry

That monster is the biggest pillar of them all. When we talk about saving the world – About the global warming, pollution and the need to change everything to green energy. We never mention them. THEY do not hold the power – they are the power.

Who are they? Every single machine that goes on oil has to be made in parts. Generations of men have been thought how to make those machines and how to implement them in transport, production, construction, water purification and many other parts of the industry. There are different parts of industry interconnected with the production of those machines. If you change that technology “in a day”, all those generations of men and women are going to be thrown into the streets, without their jobs and ways to provide for their families. Thus, by saving the planet you create chaos.

These are the main reasons why so many people are trying to stop the advancements in EV technology. Some car manufacturers even tried to sell diesel as “pure” fuel and lied about the fuel economy of their cars. Now they have to pay billions to their customers and clean the stains out of their names.

EVs are very young technology

Before Tesla Motors gave the world the beautiful Roadster, everyone claimed that EVs can only go for 30 miles on their batteries and that, it was impossible to make a fast EV car. Now, EVs go from 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and can stay on the road 300 miles for an hour of charging. As the final sign of good will, Tesla Motors gave its technology to anyone who wants it. Car manufacturers will slowly go from internal combustion engines to electrical engines. That is a fact.

Journalists are going to continue doing their jobs, and report about anything, politicians are going to continue worrying about their seats and industry is going to advance.
So, understand this world, and take responsibility for your actions. In the end, there is no such thing as a perfect machine. Machines always break!

We always have to intervene because we are drivers and drivers always keep their hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road. Drive safe.

If at all there was an eco-centric mold contest for all other electric cars ever built in its class, the brand new 2017 Tesla Model S wouldn’t have to break a sweat to appease the judges. It addresses two major concerns, just like any other EV would do, but takes them a notch higher: charging time and range.
In terms of the range, a typical EV tops at about 80-100 miles. Guess what the 2017 Tesla Model S offers! It provides an eye-popping 208 miles, that’s more than twice what the rest offer. And according to Tesla, the 208 mile range is provided by the least-expensive model. Well, I guess you’ve started paying attention now.

The second concern is, charging time. Now more than ever, Tesla owners have charging booths installed almost everywhere in major cities and towns. And these are not just the ordinary type, the offer a more rapid charge rate.

Several issues, however, can dent the image of the 2017 Tesla Model S including potential reliability issues, and lacking the convenience, luxury, and familiarity of similarly priced sedans. But even so, the 2017 Tesla Model S still manages to get an “A” rating.

As already mentioned above, it would be difficult to find direct rivals to the Model S in its category as, quite frankly, there are none. However, gasoline-powered rivals like the 2017 Audi A7, the 2017 Porsche Panamera, and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class may offer some matching and even better accoutrements.

Rumored 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback Under Development

Shortly after the release of the Model 3, there are already rumors on 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback. This model could actually bring to a more functional Tesla fleet of cars. In addition, it will expand the roster with an additional version of the car.

Tesla has always been a company which strives to improvement and towards making oneself better. So it is not unusual for them to consider a hatchback version of the car.

Once the Model 3 vehicle made its debut it started attracting many people towards the brand. In fact, the very introduction and gearing up for this version was a big thing. We were anticipating this model very much and were waiting to see what it has. It is safe to say that it did not disappoint and that the Model 3 is one of Tesla’s finest products.

The idea behind the Tesla Model 3 vehicle was to bring the all-electric model to the masses and get it closer to the people. You can bet that it was successful. Namely, there were more than 400,000 pre-orders made without even seeing the car.

The next step in evolution would be a hatchback version. Although the company didn’t confirm this so far, they are viewing this as a possibility. They can decide to bring this model to fruition and actually use the popularity of the brand. Plus, they would bring an even more convenient model to the people.

Tesla might start to consider the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback soon. So we can beat them to the punch and give our estimations about how the car might look. Enjoy our review and our potential estimations about this car.

Designing the Exterior of the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback

Making the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback is going to be easy, at least aesthetically speaking. The mechanical side of things is a whole different story but we will concentrate on the looks for now. The Model 3 sedan already has what it takes to be transformed into a coupe. It’s mainly thanks to its coupe-like features that it has. It is not going to take too much to make the hatchback from the base version.

The front end will see a removal of a grille and all the air intakes, since there is no need for any. LEDs are added for the lights and also for the daytime running lights. They are placed in the form of strips along the bumper.

2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback Athletic Look

They will cut the overhangs, emphasizing the vehicle’s athletic form. The side of the car sees a character line. It is placed at an angle and when it combines with the raked stance of the car gives it more of an aggressive look. The wheels are going to come with rollers designed in a unique style.

But the rear part sees the most differences with the hatch part drifting away at a flatter angle. There is a single segmented sheet of glass. At the same time a spoiler is mounted in the back with a higher trunk as well. We also see that the hatch part has gain a lot of aero additions and new wraparound taillights.

The rendering of the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback actually shows us a car which is more suitable in terms of its size and usefulness compared to the sedan version. It just seems more natural that they turn this small car  into a hatchback. On the other side, the sedan is very good looking as well. But just seems awkward in a way.

The Changes that can be Done on the Inside

One of the major things that the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback will expand compared to the sedan version is the cargo space. The hatch will increase the spacing inside. Additionally, it will offers us a larger volume in the rear and the in front, as the sedan has two cargo bays.

But it is not certain how much more cargo space they are willing to offer. As we see it, they have to match what the rivals are offering. Therefore it would not make much sense to expand if they are not capable of doing it right.

This model will have foldable seats. This is not only going to help increase the cargo space. It will also give us enough room for 5 people to be accommodated at the same time.

The cabin will also go through an update. And this is both in terms of the layout on the dashboard and the controls. They will shift most of the controls to the center mounted touchscreen on the dash. Therefore, the passenger and the driver will have access to the infotainment system that way.

We are probably going to be treated to a more modernistic approach here so less hard buttons and switches will be given. We also expect to see the basic Autopilot features given for the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback. This is a usual addition in every Tesla vehicle so this one is not going to be one which is going to miss those.

Powertrain for the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback

As we expect it the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback will probably borrow the powertrain from the sedan version. The problem is that the information about the powertrain of the sedan is still limited.

They have not unveiled everything that we want to know, so we cannot really confirm nor guess how the hatchback is going to fare. What we can say is that the base model will probably come with a RWD drive and be capable of attaining a range of 215 miles, which probably means that they are adding a 40-kWh battery pack.

We can also expect that the 0-60 mph acceleration comes to about 6 seconds of time. Of course, there are probably going to be some higher specs models available and we assume that those will get to use a 60-kWh battery pack or even a 70-kWh one.

The former one could offer a range of 250 miles and an acceleration of up to 5 seconds, while the latter option provides a range of 300 miles and 4 seconds to get to 60 mph.

Pricing

We estimate that the price for the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback will not differ so much compared to the sedan version. It might add a couple of hundreds but it will initially come to a price of $27,500. The higher trim levels will of course get a higher bump in the price and will probably amount to somewhere around $55,000.

Rivaling Vehicles

The competition for the 2019 Tesla Model 3 Hatchback is probably a standard one. There are already a lot of hatchback cars with an electric engine available so the Model 3 is just going to be one of the many. But this is a Tesla so it immediately gives it a lot of advantage when we compare it to the other ones. Vehicles such as Chevrolet Bolt and the Nissan Leaf are in for a surprise when the Hatchback version of the Model 3 comes out.
