"Remote S for Tesla is a third-party app which uses the Tesla API to allow you to control a number of the car’s functions using a combination of iPhone and Apple Watch. Highlights are the ability to unlock and start the car using Touch ID, monitor all three ranges at once (estimated/rated/ideal) and keep the heating/cooling running for more than 30 minutes when the car is not being used. Tech-ier users can even create web pages that communicate with the app."
"In a media alert, the California-based auto and energy storage company said it plans to launch a mobile store that will tour the United States and Europe this summer. Housed in a 'unique' shipping container designed at Tesla, the store 'arrives and unfolds to double its size in just a few hours,' according to a company spokesperson."
"Buena Park will soon be home to Orange County’s second Tesla Motors showroom. The Palo Alto manufacturer of high-end electric vehicles is expected to open a 23,000-square-foot dealership and service center on 2.5 acres this summer on Auto Center Drive within the Buena Park Auto Center. Tesla is moving into a vacant dealership formerly occupied by Premier Chevrolet, which moved to another showroom at the auto center. 'They will be bringing new, cutting edge, exciting technology to the city, including eight publicly accessible super charging stations for Tesla owners,' said Joel Rosen, Buena Park’s director of community development."
"A Texas House deadline has come and gone, killing many top-priority bills for both parties — among them one that would allow Tesla-backed direct car sales and another to regulate ride-hailing companies. Midnight Thursday was the last chance for House bills to win initial, full-chamber approval. Since any proposal can be tacked onto other bills as amendments, no measure is completely dead until the legislative session ends June 1. But even with such resurrections, actually becoming state law now gets far tougher."
"State lawmakers said Wednesday they hope to work out a compromise law this year that would allow Tesla Motors to start selling its electric cars at its $3 million showroom in Salt Lake City. Two weeks before the showroom's planned opening in March, the Utah attorney general's office ruled that it couldn't sell cars under state laws barring a manufacturer from owning more than 45 percent of any dealership. Now, no one can buy, test-drive or discuss the price of a Tesla there, and the company says it's losing money on the venture."
