At The Motley Fool, we want to be accountable for our recommendations. Each week, I'll make a CAPScall on my profile in Motley Fool CAPS and highlight my pick in Friday's video. This video series may also include updates on previous calls and related news points.

But Tesla pushes forward with plans to deliver its zero-emission Model S sedan, as well as a crossover vehicle dubbed Model X.
