A recent NYT review cited the new Tesla Model S vehicle as somewhat lackluster. Responding to this, Tesla founder Elon Musk has stated that the review is based on inaccurate data, which can be proved through vehicle log data.


Tesla Model S

Musk didn’t exactly make an empty claim, but went forth to show where the NYT reviewer, John Broder, got things wrong and ended up writing a factually inaccurate narrative of the car’s performance. Commenting on the issue, Musk tweeted, “NYTimes article about Tesla range in cold is fake. Vehicle logs tell true story that he didn’t actually charge to max & took a long detour.”

If indeed Broder didn’t charge up the batter to the max, that will cast a bad shadow on the credibility of his review. The performance of the car’s battery can’t be gauged if it wasn’t charged to max before the test drive began. Moreover, Musk isn’t stopping at rebutting the review but is gathering other people to give the vehicle a shot and see for themselves.

According to him, “Tesla blog coming soon detailing what actually happened on Broder’s NYTimes “range test”. Also lining up other journalists to do same drive.”

On the other hand, NYT has clearly dismissed Musk’s claims and a statement from the paper read, “Jan. 10 article recounting a reporter’s test drive in a Tesla Model S was completely factual […] Any suggestion that the account was ‘fake’ is, of course, flatly untrue.”

It now remains to be seen when will Elon Musk post the log data of the vehicle, which he had promised, so that everyone can see which of the two parties are right in their claims.
