Published on September 24th, 2018 | by The Beam

While there are many viable approaches to sustainable travel -- social, economic, and environmental -- we hold the same belief: the first step toward positive change is to find other like-minded travelers and do it as a community. ... Read More

Yes, Tesla Competitors Want Elon Out

Published on September 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

As many an astute reader of Pravduh has noticed, the explicit or implicit smear campaign against Tesla has shifted over the years. From the Model S to the Model 3's arrival, much of the attack was focused on Tesla's ability to produce cars and Tesla's financing. While that fun nonsense hasn't gone away, this year has seen a strong rise in attacks on Elon... Read More

179 Tesla Headlines: 120 Negative & 28 Positive — #Pravduh About #Tesla

Published on September 23rd, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

This is the third publication of what the CleanTechnica team calls #Pravduh About #Tesla. For those who somehow missed it, about 4 months ago, Elon Musk got fed up with so much of the media publishing FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) articles about Tesla, and in some cases outright misinformation, that he got an idea...

Dear Analysts, Stop Trying To Put Tesla In A Box

Published on September 23rd, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

It is well known that Elon Musk and Tesla don’t like to conform to established industry standards or feel limited by them. So trying to measure their performance by established industry standards is like measuring them on a scale of bananas, utterly pointless... Read More

Tesla Model 3 Performance Is A Freakin’ Race Car — Unbeatable

Published on September 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

The top-of-the-line Tesla Model S is quicker than the top-of-the-line Tesla Model 3, zipping from 0–60 mph in a cool & easy 2.5 seconds rather than the Model 3 Performance's 3.5 seconds. However, as I've emphasized many times when comparing various cars, numbers on a screen only tell you so much... Read More

Tesla Killers Not Killing Tesla But Tesla Is A Killer Killer

Published on September 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Confused? I had fun with the "Tesla killer" nonsense a couple of weeks ago, and also with a decade of claims that Tesla was about to be dead (aka bankrupt), but a recent tweet or two stimulated yet one more Morning Monkey Business piece on these topics... Read More

Top Gear: Tesla Model 3 Performance “A Satisfying Way To Get Around”

Published on September 22nd, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla’s vehicles have earned rave reviews from just about every major automotive authority. However, there are plenty of car guys (and, presumably, gals) out there who still haven’t warmed up to a Tesla, or any electric vehicle. Some petrol-heads of this persuasion are to be found at Top Gear, the UK car guys that famously fought it out in the courtroom with Tesla back in 2008 (as told in a certain book). “As much as we admire BEVs, not one has yet landed that genuinely stirs the emotions like our old friend internal combustion,” writes Top Gear’s Jason Barlow in a recent article...

“The Fixer” — Tesla’s New President

Published on September 22nd, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Both Tesla fanboys and TSLA shorts seem to agree on one thing — Elon Musk could use some rest. He, however, disagrees. Nevertheless, many were relieved when Musk recently announced that "Jerome Guillen has been promoted to President, Automotive ... [in order to] oversee all automotive operations and program management, as well as coordinate our extensive automotive supply chain."...

10 Years After 1st Car, Tesla Production Rate = 300,000–400,000* Cars A Year

Published on September 22nd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the most bewildering criticisms of Tesla that I routinely see is that it can't mass produce cars. A common variation of that is that Tesla can't quickly ramp up production. I find both criticisms a bit absurd. They are based on limited thinking and a warped grading system. We've explained some of the reasons why in other pieces... Read More

Space Station Earth

Published on September 22nd, 2018 | by Andy Miles

On Space Station Earth, there are millions of untrained, careless people, knowing nothing of the intricate balances that maintain the life-support system, creating mayhem and destruction on a daily basis. We obviously need an intensive training program to make all personnel aware of the safety protocols, and to have some idea of how the life-support system on Space Station Earth operates. ...

In Germany, E-Mobility Startups Are Filling The Gaps

Last month, another remarkable milestone came to fruition for the Silicon Valley Automaker. Eric Loveday reports (via InsideEVs), "It’s hard to believe it, but indeed it’s true. In the month of August, the Tesla Model 3 alone outsold all passenger cars from BMW." Meanwhile, in Germany, legacy automakers are struggling to develop a cohesive strategy for their fledgling electric vehicle programs... Read More
