DIY Solar Nissan LEAF, Tesla Demoralizing Automakers, Model 3 The “Ultimate Driving Machine” — CleanTechnica Top 20

August 4th, 2019 by  

The most popular stories on CleanTechnica last week were led by the story of a DIYer in Texas who bought a used Nissan LEAF and turned it into a solar car. After that, it was the usual Tesla bonanza — a piece on how Tesla threatens incumbent fossil automakers, a major auto reviewer (in this case Edmunds) showering impressive praise on the Tesla Model 3 (calling it the “ultimate driving machine”), some hot tweets from Elon Musk (in this case regarding the coming Tesla pickup truck), and more Tesla sales record (in this case, over in Europe in June). Check out the full list and be sure to read and share any hotties you missed!
