Tesla Model 3 vs. Toyota Camry Cost of Ownership … Range Lost On Parked Model 3 … Tesla Service FTW — #CleanTechnica Top 20

August 24th, 2019 by  

The most popular CleanTechnica articles of the past week were led by (yet another) total cost of ownership analysis comparing the Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Camry. A couple of us here at CleanTechnica had previously published our own 5 year cost of ownership comparisons between these cars, but this one came from Loup Ventures, “a research-driven venture capital firm based in Minneapolis and New York investing in frontier technology.” Other popular stories covered Model 3 range lost while parked, a Tesla service experience, and much more regarding Tesla. Non-Tesla stories included the sprouting EV revolution, a solar-powered Chevy Bolt, Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, clean energy at 1¢/kWh, VW’s EV potential, and much more.

It’s not all about what most people click, though. We put a lot of time and effort into original analyses, reviews, interviews, and more. In the past week, we published 20 such stories, including reflections from a Tesla service visit, a couple of Tesla Model 3 owner interviews, a story about an interesting solar-powered Chevy Bolt, a story about and pics from Tesla Sentry Mode photographing an apparent thief, some context explaining why previous hype about lack of Tesla demand in Europe didn’t make sense, an explanation of Tesla’s advantage in crisis management, the best Tesla Model 3 review I’ve read, a road-trip comparison of the Peuogeot iOn and and 100+ mile Nissan LEAF, a superb detailed look at potential Tesla Model 3 demand in Asia–Pacific countries other than China, and more. I definitely recommend perusing our CleanTechnica originals and checking out ones that pique your interest.

But, getting back to the top 20 of the week, scroll down below for a look at the full list.
