Tesla Motors and the New York Times

The ongoing dispute between Tesla Motors and the New York Times is starting to have an impact upon the reputation of the electric car industry. What started as a relatively minor spat between the two heavyweights has grabbed the attention of media outlets around the world.

For those who are not fully aware of the details, a reporter from the New York Times took one of Tesla’s prize motors on a test drive and reported his experience. The test drive did not go to plan and there is now a dispute about the details of the journey and whether indeed it was fair and representational of the vehicle itself. This is an issue which will go on for some time to come!
