Tesla vs Bolt … China’s HUGE 2017 Electric Car Sales … Renault Zoe Wins Europe … (Top 20 CleanTechnica Stories of the Week)

January 29th, 2018 by  

The hottest CleanTechnica story of the past week was, no surprise, a Tesla-related story. It initially seemed to be a rather humble, inconspicuous, unpretentious but interesting reflection of Steve’s time driving and riding in the Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, and Chevy Bolt in the Middle East during a 2018 Global EVRT adventure, but then it blew up and is now approaching 200,000 views. I imagine you’ve already read it, but have a gander if not — at least for the pics!

Other hot stories on the podium this week were a couple of December 2017 and full-year 2017 electric car sales reports from Jose Pontes — one for China (which is still super hot) and one for Europe. I’m addicted to the number fun in monthly reports like these, so I’m not surprised other people are as well!
