US Auto Sales Slump … Automakers Lagging Tesla … Woz Buys Tesla Powerwalls — #CleanTechnica Top 20

The most popular stories on CleanTechnica last week covered a wide variety of Tesla stories, some fun Nissan LEAF stories, a piece on the new EV approach from Nikola Motors, news of a 10 gigawatt battery factory for India, and some scientific advancements in geothermal energy and batteries.

Leading the pack, though, was a detailed dive into US auto sales data for 27 auto brands, 16 of which have seen their overall sales decrease in 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. Just behind that story was Paul Fosse’s reporting from several recent auto test drives he went on that did not impress him. A Tesla Model 3 spoils you like that.
