Journalist's anti-electric car agenda forgot the data

A New York Times electric car critic has been caught out making a range of inaccurate claims about the Tesla Model S electric vehicle failing to appreciate that data about his test-drive was being comprehensively logged.

You may have heard recently about an article written by John Broder from The New York Times that makes numerous claims about the performance of the Tesla Model S. We are upset by this article because it does not factually represent Tesla technology, which is designed and tested to operate well in both hot and cold climates. Indeed, our highest per capita sales are in Norway, where customers drive our cars during Arctic winters in permanent midnight, and in Switzerland, high among the snowy Alps. About half of all Tesla Roadster and Model S customers drive in temperatures well below freezing in winter. While no car is perfect, after extremely thorough testing, the Model S was declared to be the best new car in the world by the most discerning authorities in the automotive industry.
