A Quick Post To Catch Up…

I missed these posted back in March…

Elon Musk interview on Tesla, Solar City, Space X:

When asked about why Space X, he didn’t have kid dreams of being an astronaut, he says it’s more from the standpoint of “What are the things that need to happen in order for the future to be an exciting and inspiring one.” My favorite quote.

Tesla Model S & BMW M5

A Video Showing the Tesla Model S (w/Performance Package) and the BMW M5 as tested by Edmunds (Two separate tests edited into one video, not a race). Pretty close! It’s obvious Telsa had the M5 in mind when designing the Model S w/Performance Package. Gas/electric aside, if you think about the fact that this is Tesla’s first production car and the M5 has decades of development behind it, the Model S is pretty impressive! Now think about the fact that this is an electric car, and what that means for the future.

One Year Driving the Nissan Leaf

For those seriously interested in this or other all-electric vehicles

(from description: “My good friend Chris Emerson has driven a Nissan Leaf for the last year, and we spent an afternoon chatting about his experiences driving an electric vehicle. Friendly warning that this is a long video, but Chris is a pretty insightful guy. If you’ve been curious about EV’s in general (and the Leaf specifically) this is a pretty in-depth look at what owning one in Los Angeles is like”)

 

I hope to blog more often in the near future, enjoy these videos for now. đŸ™‚ -Benji
