Tesla infinite-mile warranty will also apply to Models X and 3

A little rain fell on Tesla’s parade recently, when Consumer Reports and Edmunds.com each reported that their Model S units had racked up what seemed to be an excessive number of maintenance issues. However, both sources reported that most of the repairs in question were covered under warranty.

Perhaps in response to the negative publicity, Tesla announced that the Model S drive unit warranty has been increased to match that of the battery pack – an 8-year, infinite-mile warranty, with no limit to the number of owners covered. This week, Elon Musk tweeted that a “similar” warranty will apply to the Model X and the eagerly-awaited Model 3. 

And by the way, it seems that “S-E-X” isn’t dead, it’s just been turned on its side. The name of the new game-changing EV will be pronounced “Model Three,” but will be represented in print not by the Roman numeral III, but by three horizontal bars, like the “E” in the Tesla logo. A sexy ride, however you spell it.
