Used Tesla Model 3 Prices … Big Oil vs. EVs … Model Y Rumors — #CleanTechnica Top 20

January 12th, 2019 by  

The stories that caught the eye and imagination the most this past week on CleanTechnica included an original analysis on used Tesla Model 3 prices (vs. the competition), the seemingly never-ending nefarious activities of the oil & gas industry, and rumors about Tesla Model Y prices and specs (and urban Superchargers).

Those top 3 were followed by my notes on a Honda Accord & Civic sales crash, a brief look inside Tesla Gigafactory 1, and a report highlighting that the Tesla Model S (like the Tesla Model 3) has the best resale value in its class in the US.

We also had popular stories on solar energy, Elon Musk, the new Nissan LEAF, EV delay tactics, the Chinese Tesla Gigafactory, the Jaguar I-PACE taking the #1 spot in the Netherlands among all car sales in December (and the Tesla Model S taking #1 among electric cars for the full year) and more. Check out the full list below, and don’t forget to first subscribe to a CleanTechnica newsletter if you haven’t yet. (We are also open to actual financial subscriptions. Just do it.)
