Real Customer Deliveries Start in Late October Say what you will, Elon Musk and his team at Tesla know how to manage excitement and entertainment. Friday night, July 29, at 9 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, Musk and a variety of Tesla folks spent 36 minutes hyping Tesla and, finally, showing off 30 new Tesla Model 3s being charged for their waiting new owners (all Tesla employees). During the show more details of the Model 3’s two trim levels were revealed along with future iterations. You can rewatch the whole thing here. In spite of the promise of an affordable, $35,000 compact electric car, the initial Model 3s produced will all be the high-end model (dubbed the Long Range because of its larger battery). It has a starting price of $44,000 (options such as any color other than black—just like with the Model S and Model X—or a power driver’s seat or leather) and could reach almost $60,000 with all the option boxes checked.

(Matthew Eisman/Getty Images for Hamptons International Film Festival) “Fake news” is everywhere you look.

Driving Range Edges Out the Chevrolet Bolt, Tesla Model 3 When Hyundai took the cover off the Kona Electric at the Geneva Motor Show three weeks ago, it was questionable when, or even if, the electric hatchback would show up in the U.S. The questions were answered at this week’s New York Auto Show when the Korean automaker presented the U.S. production model of the 2019 Kona Electric with an estimated 250-mile driving range on EPA test cycle. The version launched for the European market in Geneva includes a model with a smaller battery pack and lower rated range, but the U.S. will get only the model with a higher-capacity battery. Range-Topping Electric Powertrain The Kona may offer the most range range for the price The Kona Electric swaps out the internal combustion engine and all the associated plumbing from the standard Kona and replaces it with a liquid-cooled 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack and a 201 horsepower permanent-magnet electric motor … [Read more...] about News: 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric Offers Long Range
We're now into the second day of the 2018 New York International Auto Show but there are still many vehicles to report on. One is the Acura MDX A-Spec, which arrives for 2019 and adds plenty of aggression to the luxury mid-size SUV. Genesis used the show to roll out the Essentia concept. It's an electric grand tourer that has left us wondering whether it's a preview of the new coupe the Korean luxury brand will add to its lineup early next decade. Alfa Romeo didn't have a new car to present. Instead, the Italian automaker introduced the Nero Edizione package, which adds some tasteful black accents to the Giulia and Stelvio models. You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority. 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec debuts at 2018 New York auto show Genesis Essentia Concept: Here’s your luxury Rorschach test Alfa Romeo's Nero Edizione package for Giulia and Stelvio debuts in New York Updates prioritize 2019 Kia Optima over 2019 Sedona for active-safety gear … [Read more...] about Acura MDX A-Spec, Genesis electric coupe, Alfa Romeo black packs: Car News Headlines
Sometimes it’s hard to write an entirely objective review of an object whose primary appeal is emotional. Certainly, you can argue the Mercedes-Benz G-Class – or G-Wagen, which stands for Geländewagen – is a purpose-built, Zombie-apocalypse proof, no-nonsense military-style vehicle designed to conquer every surface the Earth has to offer. But the reality is, most of the civilian versions spend the majority of their lives in shopping centre carparks or at the school drop-off, so you have to absolutely love the G-Wagen to own one. So, it’s probably best to come clean and confess that we (anyone at CarAdvice who disagrees no longer works at CarAdvice) absolutely love the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. In fact, for this author at least, it’s my favourite Mercedes. This is a rather odd choice given the soon-to-be-replaced G is not only the oldest vehicle in the Mercedes range, but also perhaps the worst to drive as a daily. There is a new G-Class coming and it … [Read more...] about Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen: A love story
