21:24 EDTTSLATesla to request White House press China on foreign auto maker rules, WSJ says
Tesla plans to request that White House officials discuss China's restrictions on foreign auto makers during President Xi Jinping's visit next month, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing spokesperson statements. The report notes that China prevents foreign car companies from assembling vehicles without first partnering with a Chinese firm. "The requirement that Tesla establish a joint venture for local manufacturing and other obstacles to our activities, such as much higher import duties in China compared to the United States, put American car companies at a significant disadvantage," said the spokesperson.

11:15 EDTTSLAConsumer Reports: Tesla P85D 'the best car we've tested in 80 years'
Consumer Reports comments, "The all-wheel-drive Tesla Model S P85D sedan performed better in our tests than any other car ever has, breaking the Consumer Reports Ratings system. The P85D is brutally quick, with instant acceleration. The car's thrust is forceful and immediate. Its near-instant g-forces can otherwise be achieved only by leaping off a building-literally... In rating it, however, we faced a quandary: The Tesla initially scored 103 in the Consumer Reports' Ratings system, which by definition doesn't go past 100. The car set a new benchmark, so we had to make changes to our scoring to account for it." Reference Link
