Yes, The Mach-E Is A Real Mustang

Published on November 19th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

The closest people on the sidewalk jumped a bit. Two men on scooters abandoned their wheels, and exploded out of the bike lane onto the sidewalk. Even people who weren't frightened were definitely looking my way, just in case. Moments earlier, the light had just turned green, and I had used my right and left feet to unleash a monster on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The Shelby GT350R, with its 5.2L flat-plane crank V8 engine, let out a growling sound that awakens humans' inner fear of large, growling animals... Read More

Reviving The “Tesla Deathwatch” — With A Totally Different Spin

Published on November 18th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

After the recent unveiling of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, I feel like it's time to revive the Tesla Deathwatch. No, not the Tesla Deathwatch that you may have read about on this site before, where certain websites made daily updates gleefully predicting that Tesla would run out of money and be forced to shutter operations...

Is The Mustang Mach-E A Ford Killer?

Published on November 18th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

No, that's not a typo. As I watched the reveal last tonight, I was curious about how the Mustang Mach-E is going to be positioned within the Ford lineup, and after some time looking into it more, I find this new pony to be an incredible business risk to Ford... Read More

Ford Mustang Mach-E Reveal: We Finally Have A Company Copying Tesla!

Published on November 18th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

I was sitting at the computer last night, watching an electric car reveal, and it wasn't a Tesla. In many ways, this seemed like quite the inflection point in the evolution of electric mobility in the United States, not just because it's a different company doing an online reveal — I watched the reveal of the updated Nissan Leaf a few years ago — but because Ford is really pushing this thing...

How Market Power Gives Electric Utilities Political Power

Published on November 18th, 2019 | by John Farrell

In the pathway to 100% renewable energy lie electric utilities. Since the time of electrification until the 1990s, every electric utility was a monopoly -- it owned everything to deliver electricity from the power plants (and sometimes even the coal mines) to the transmission lines to the substations to the distribution lines to the meter on your home or business. With a market monopoly, utilities have enormous political power to promote or avoid change... Read More

Tesla Model 3 V3 Supercharging Times: 2% To 100% State of Charge (Video)

Published on November 18th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

VegasModel3 posted a video that answers the most asked EV question I've encountered. Although, the answer to this question is particular to the Tesla Model 3. It won't answer the question for all EVs. That question is typically the beginning question before someone delves further into the world of electric cars... Read More

A Gigafactory For Berlin

Published on November 17th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

When people ask me how it is possible that most of my predictions about Tesla are correct, my answer is, "Those are not my predictions. You just have to listen carefully to Elon Musk, and do it twice, better trice." Elon tells the truth, unless he is joking, and he likes joking but not if it's about his mission to change the world to sustainable transportation... Read More
