The Definitive Guide To Buying And Owning A Tesla Model S

Whether you drive a Tesla Model S or are just considering it, Owning Model S by Nick J. Howe is essential reading.  The book is a definitive informational resource for a car that is changing the way we ought to look at automobiles. 

Howe’s book is part owner’s manual, part encyclopedia and entirely fascinating to anyone interested in the future of electric vehicles.  Torklift Central makes several appearances in the transcript, accompanied by real-world user experiences of how our EcoHitch for Model S is being used by Tesla owners: 

“Forum user @Pungoteague_Dave fitted the EcoHitch from Torklift Central and towed a small boat trailer from the US North East down to Florida and back (2410 miles) and reported a paltry 5 Wh/m impact.  This contrasts sharply with his experience with a bike rack and two bikes on the back, which increased his consumption by 125 Wh/m at 60mph!” (1)

We had the pleasure of meeting Nick J. Howe at TMC Connect 2014.  He was kind enough to chat with us about Tesla Model S, EcoHitch and sign a copy of his book that we now have on display at our facility in Kent, Wash. 

Thanks Nick! 

To receive a free chapter of Owning Model S visit the book’s official website.

A Tesla Model S, A Generator And EcoHitch

Towing a generator isn’t usually something to write home about.  When you do it with a Tesla Model S, people begin to wonder:  Is he charging his car with that thing?  What sort of early adopter lifestyle does this man lead? 

Tesla Model S owner KmanAuto answers these provocative questions in a YouTube video of a special delivery he made.

How Fast Is The Tesla Model S?

Tesla’s flagship sedan is doing a great job of stealing away customers from the likes of Porsche, Mercedes, BMW and Lexus just to name a few.  

But it’s more than the environmental benefits of never touching another drop of gasoline that motivates so many people to Get Out and Go electric with Tesla.

The Model S is defining what it means to be a performance electric car, and an increasingly mainstream one at that.  This video of a Model S drag racing a 2014 Corvette C7 Z51 is proof that EV’s can make going green a whole lot of fun.
