In this week’s top stories: Autopilot 2.0 gets an update, Tesla Model 3’s aero wheels look awesome without their caps, Tesla creates a tiny house to promote energy products, a glimpse at Tesla’s mobile service capacity, how a 97 year-old grandfather reacts to a Model S, our full review of Hyundai’s IONIQ, and more. Read on for all of this week’s top stories.

This week we see what the 18″ standard wheels on the Model 3 look like without the Aero caps, and it’s awesome. It may even convince those who don’t mind a smaller wheel size to forgo the $1,500 upgrade to the Sport wheels with such a simple way to improve the look of the base wheels.

Tesla created a tiny house and is taking it on a tour with a Model X “to educate the public on how to generate, store and use renewable energy for their home.” We see details about Tesla’s mobile service initiative, its goal to triple its service capacity, and how serious it is about this effort.

This week we get to see a 97 year-old experiencing a Tesla for the first time, a new Autopilot 2.0 update is released for vehicles that have the 2nd generation hardware, and we also saw images of the unreleased white interior for the Model 3. Tesla has also begun offering home charging installation in select markets.

This week we share our full review of Hyundai’s IONIQ and also sees some EV’s being discounted up to $20,000 if you are looking into getting started into EV ownership for cheap.
