Countdown To Model 3 Month

June 3rd, 2017 by  

Ever since I took over CleanTechnica in mid-2010, I have tried to implement a very community-oriented approach — with a lot of freedom and choice given to writers as well as a lot of responsiveness to readers and collaboration with them/you. I think this should be the approach in general as we move toward a more “democratic” energy and transport system (but maybe that’s just my idealism talking).

In that vein, one of our eager readers and top advisors recently had the idea of running a “Countdown to Model 3” series, since Model 3 production is now supposed to start next month. We have a few ideas for stories, but would also love your input on what you’d like to see us investigate, analyze, and muse about.

Here are stories in this Countdown to Model 3 series (updated regularly):
