Tesla Model 3: A Comprehensive Canadian Review

By: Rosario Fortugno; Posted: May 22, 2018

Last month I went to Southern California to check out the Tesla Factory in Freemont, California and attend a few meetings with potential investors for my company, InOrbis Intercity. As luck would have it, Tesla graciously allowed me to test out one of their newest cars while I was there. For 9 days, I got to test drive the all-new Tesla Model 3. Here are my thoughts on the mass-market EV of the future.

Update: Tesla has announced that the dual-motor variant of the Model 3 will add $5000 US ($6,600 Canadian) to the price. The range of the Dual-Motor variant will remain at 310 Miles (499 km). Source: Tesla

Why Are Electric Vehicles Good for the Environment?

By: Nalini Mediboina; Posted: Dec 04, 2017

Political activism, increased scientific awareness and government intervention have sped up the thinking for consumers looking at upgrading their current vehicle to all-electric. With the growing interest and shift of people moving to electric vehicles to help lower their carbon footprint (and save some money at the pump), we thought it was a good opportunity to discuss why electric vehicles are better not only for the environment but for the individuals who own them.

Enjoy Cheering On Your Team, No Matter What City You Live In!

By: Nalini Mediboina; Posted: Nov 28, 2017

Sports have always been important to me – I never forget to catch my favourite games on TV or in person. While I love a variety of sports, I’ve always had hockey near and dear to my heart. Being in Alberta, I’m lucky to have several local NHL teams, and any time I can see a game in person, I get the chance to see some of my sports idols play, either from the home team or the visiting team.

How Much Will the Tesla Semi Actually Cost?

By: Rosario Fortugno; Posted: Nov 19, 2017

When Elon Musk stepped on stage this past Thursday and announced that the Tesla would have a 500-mile range and do 0-60 in 5 seconds, attendees at the event in Hawthorne, California and watching the live stream collectively dropped their jaws. How could an electric vehicle carrying up to 80,000 lbs, the maximum allowed on US highways, travel 500-miles on a single charge while accelerating 4x faster than a traditional diesel semi? 

Update: Tesla has announced pricing for the Semi. The 300 Mile-range variant will sell for $160,000 US and the 500 Mile-range variant will sell for $180,000. Pricing information can be found on Tesla's website. ...
