Tesla Motors, the electric car manufacturer, is accusing New York Times auto writer John Broder of serious irregularities in a recent story. Last week, Broder wrote an extremely negative piece on the company which included a long segment describing his poor test drive of a Tesla Model S. Broder claimed, most damningly, that his car completely ran out of energy on a highway. In a blog post, CEO Elon Musk released vehicle logs which appear to contradict Broder's account; Musk also claims that Broder intentionally drove in circles to drain the car's battery. In his post--which only includes partial vehicle logs--Musk claims that Broder is hostile to electric cars in general. Meanwhile, the Atlantic Wire is raising questions of their own about Tesla's partial data set.
