Tesla Model 3 TCO … #1 Top Selling American Car … Gigawatts of Solar in Japan — #CleanTechnica Top 20

October 14th, 2018 by  

The most popular articles of the past week included not a single article about Tesla.


As usual, Tesla stories rose to the top of the pack in terms of eyeballs and shares. In fact, the top article has scored over half a million pageviews. Wowza! Interestingly, despite showing a surprisingly competitive total cost of ownership (TCO) estimate for the Tesla Model 3, author Paul Fosse learned after digging even deeper that the TCO should be even lower! That link leads to the new article, just published.

The Model 3 becoming the #1 top selling car in the US produced by an American car company also received an enormous amount of love. That story and the #1 story received a boost as well from Sir Elon Musk himself, who happened to retweet them.

For the rest of the top 20, read on, click through, share the love, and then don’t forget to become a CleanTechnica subscriber!
