Tesla’s market capitalization on Wednesday surpassed the $100 billion mark for the first time — an unprecedented achievement for a US automaker that positions CEO Elon Musk for a major payday. Shares of the electric-car maker were up 5.9 percent Wednesday morning, at $579.54, giving the electric automaker a valuation of $104.5 billion.

The SpaceX and Tesla founder probably won’t get an invitation for Dancing with the Stars.
No one will mistake Elon Musk for the next Fred Astaire, but the Tesla and SpaceX founder still busted out his best moves onstage at aTuesday in China. I don’t care how well you can dance. If you choose to shake your tail feathers in public, you are a hero.
Musk was proud enough of his boogie skills to post a clip to Twitter, writing “At Tesla Giga Shanghai NSFW!”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk debuted his not-yet-released Cybertruck this weekend, stirring up attention at Malibu’s famed Nobu restaurant.
Onlookers are seen in the video taking photos of the parked car, which the valets left up front. Musk later came out of the restaurant along with curious patrons, including actor Ed Norton, to take a look at the car. Then, as Musk pulled out of the parking lot, he plowed over what appears to be a traffic cone placed by the restaurant.
Tesla owners in California waited in long lines to charge their electric vehicles over the holiday weekend.
Footage out of Kettleman City, the location of one of the largest supercharging sites boasting up to 40 chargers, shows drivers queued up back-to-back in a line about a half mile long.
Telsa may be working on a brand-new invention which replaces Tesla cybertruck wipers with pulsed lasers which would offer a contact-less way to clean glass.
A new patent for “PULSED LASER CLEANING OF DEBRIS ACCUMULATED ON GLASS ARTICLES IN VEHICLES AND PHOTOVOLTAIC ASSEMBLIES” suggests its about time we do away with wipers to clear away debris from a screen, and turn to lasers instead.
The full patent can be seen here.
