Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

Tesla and Airstream Partner for Towing Trailers

Fri Sep 9, 2016

In addition to reinventing the automobile by bringing electric propulsion to the masses with its forthcoming Model 3, Tesla also has been furiously revamping the way we buy cars.

The latest salvo involves a half-dozen Model X SUVs towing Airstream trailers that have been outfitted as rolling Tesla design studios.

As with the pop-up galleries that Tesla has opened for brief periods in the past — there was one in New York's chic Hamptons vacation community last year — the Model X-plus-Airstream idea literally drips cool. When the crossover SUV was launched in 2015, it of course pulled a retro-groovy Airstream on stage, to showcase its 5,000-pound towing capacity. It was a deft combination of the classic — the first Airstream trailers went on sale in the 1930s — and the futuristic.
