I’m a day later than normal with this, but here are the top 10 CleanTechnica stories from the past week, in case you missed any of them or just in case you are eager to know what stories have been hottest on CleanTechnica:

1. Tesla D Is Insane. Tesla continues to surprise and impress.

2. 200-Mile Electric Car Confirmed By GM. GM is apparently still serious, very serious, about bringing a 200-mile electric car to market. It would presumably be fairly affordable and come within a few years. Word on the street is that the batteries would come from LG.

3. Tesla Superchargers Per Capita, 200-Mile GM Electric Car… (EV News). Yep, that’s an electric vehicle roundup post. Those seem to be popular, but especially when an exciting story is highlighted in the title.

4. Elon Musk: Tesla Capable of “90% Autopilot” By Next Year. Tesla + autopilot = internet gold.

5. Massive New $50 Million SolarCity-Honda Megadeal Could Open FCEV Door. SolarCity continues to partner with big names, but fuel cell electric vehicles?

6. 310- To 373-Mile Electric Cars By 2020, Says VW Exec. VW sees GM’s 200-mile statement and raises it by 110 to 173 miles. In all honesty, though, the two comments seem to be unrelated and just indicative of the same thing: the EV battery market is growing up, fast.

7. SolarCity Introducing First-Of-Its-Kind “MyPower” Solar Financing Option. SolarCity, known (even infamous) for its solar leasing/PPA focus, opened a big can of whoopass by offering the most attractive home solar loan on the market, internally financed! That said, there’s still some skepticism and important criticism in the comments. Be sure to read the comments!

8. Tesla Model S P85D Details Beginning To Emerge. This article, which focused on some early (and correct) info regarding what “Tesla D” would be, was actually #1 for the week, but because of the timeframe I’m using (which starts a couple days after this was published), it falls to #8. Nonetheless, better to have the more thorough Tesla D article up at #1, I think.

9. Installed Solar Power Prices Continue To Drop In US, Still Much More Expensive Than In Germany. Chart-focused highlights from a new report on solar power prices — what more do you need?

10. Solar Thermophotovoltaics — Getting To 80% Efficiency. Anand discusses an obscure but fascinating side of solar that could be very important one day.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...
