    Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted that the company’s new Model 3 car has problems with its braking system but that this will be fixed with a software update to the car.

    Elon Musk has attempted to downplay a recent review by influential magazine Consumer Reports that claimed that Tesla’s new Model 3 has some “big flaws,” specifically relating to the cars braking system. Musk has admitted to the braking issue but has promised that a coming software update will fix the cars braking problems. Musk claims that the tests performed on the Model 3 by Consumer Reports were on an older version of the Model 3 and that the issues that the magazine identified have already been improved upon.

    “With further refinement, we can improve braking distance beyond initial specs. Tesla won’t stop until Model 3 has better braking than any remotely comparable car,” Musk stated via Twitter. “Also Consumer Reports has an early production car. Model 3 now has improved ride comfort, lower wind noise & many other small improvements. Will request that they test current production.”

    New brakes or new software? It’s gonna be expensive.

    Tesla needs to raise $10.5 billion in capital to keep going through 2020

    It may be more a challenge than before. Obama loved throwing our money at most any renewable/enviro type of companies. Musk, no doubt, misses him a lot.
