Published on December 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Cybertruck continued to blow up last week, and stimulated many different articles. Nonetheless, the Tesla Model 3 slipped through the pack to take the #1 position on the top stories list. A few more Model 3 stories, some Ford stories, a few on Tesla gigafactories, and a little bit of solar just about wrapped up the rest of the top 20 list. Check out the details below... Read More

The #1 Thing I Love About Our Tesla Model 3 That No One Talks About

Published on December 8th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We spend a lot of time in the car, and a lot of that time involves actually doing stuff, not just driving. That leads into the thing I love about our Tesla Model 3 that gets very little attention — and when it does get attention, often gets negative attention!... Read More

EV-Resource.com: A Great Site For EV Noobs

Published on December 8th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

One of the hardest things about getting more people to adopt electric vehicles is the learning curve. For those of us who own EVs and have for a while, it's easy to take for granted what it takes to operate one. You have to know how to charge, where to charge, and you have to know that charging at home is even possible... Read More

Bank of America Merrill Lynch: UK Tesla Model 3 & Other EV 3-Year Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Shows EVs Much Cheaper than Fossil Competitors

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We've published numerous analyses of our own on the total cost of ownership of the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen ID.3 compared to top gasoline competitors. However, if you don't trust research from CleanTechnica, perhaps you'll find the work of a major international financial firm more palatable. A recently published report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) that was passed along to CleanTechnica dove into this topic for the ... Read More

Tesla Revenue Growing Rapidly, But Critics Can’t Move On

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Several months ago, Hamid Shojaee tweeted out a superb chart highlighting both Tesla's annual revenue growth and summaries of the consistently wrong claims of Tesla critics and skeptics. It was so brilliant that I wanted to write an article about it, but I never got to that. As it turns out, though, the chart is still relevant today... Read More

US Gas Vehicle Sales Up Big In November, Still Down In 2019

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales by company or brand is one of the oddest-feeling things I've done in my decade or so covering cleantech. Perhaps that's because the focus is on tracking non-clean tech. The fact is, though, it shocks me every month to see how many people still buy gasoline cars. Gasoline cars are far worse than electric cars currently on the market for the same cost (or even less). Nonetheless, there are so many people buying clunky, noisy, slow, high-maintenance, low-tech, high-depreciation gasoline vehicles every single day. Objectively, it doesn't make sense... Read More

EV Market Share In Finland Reached 10% Last Month!

Published on December 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

When you think of countries leading the way in terms of electric vehicle adoption, Norway certainly comes to mind, and probably also Sweden, the Netherlands, and Iceland. But Finland? No, Finland hasn't historically had great EV adoption, but it is having a strong year, and last month showed a big boom in EV sales growth... Read More
