You can now watch the event right here:
In just a few hours, Tesla will be delivering the first Tesla Model S Plaid customer cars to some lucky humans in Fremont, California. As a reminder, the hot new Tesla Model S Plaid can go from 0 to 60 MPH in a tad under 2 seconds, a shocking accomplishment that makes it the quickest production car in history. This beats the Porsche 918 Spyder, a supercar that had a starting price of nearly $1 million. And, while it was a “production car,” only 918 were produced.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:
I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
