Tesla Model 3 Sales Skyrocket, US Toyota Camry & Prius Sales Plummet — Coincidence?

August 1st, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

There is a narrow assumption about the "class" Tesla vehicles are in that misses the broader Tesla story and the electric transition narrative. Yes, Tesla is surely pulling in a lot of consumers who would otherwise be driving a BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Jaguar, Porsche, etc. Below is a chart from my last article about that


Is Tesla Model 3 The “New Prius” For Green Signaling?

May 20th, 2018 | by Loren McDonald

With sales of hybrids slowing in the US and declining in the bellwether state of California, the king of green signaling vehicles is shifting to the Tesla Model 3 from the Toyota Prius hybrid


Does Toyota Prius History Foreshadow Tesla’s Future?

April 28th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

For those interested in Tesla, there are valuable lessons to be learned from Toyota's history. Whitelaw Reid (via UVA Today) turns his attention to the Toyota Prius case study. Why? The history of Toyota's Prius may uncover tell-tale clues about the electric vehicle future and, in particular, Tesla. He notes, "Two decades ago, Toyota's Prius sedan rolled out of factories and into Japanese showrooms, becoming the first mass-produced gasoline/electric hybrid in an automotive landscape dominated by internal-combustion fuel engines."


A Funny Story — Used Tesla Model S vs Toyota Prius Prime

August 4th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

As many of you know, we're trying to get an electric shuttle startup (Tesla Shuttle) off the ground in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). We recently held a test ride event to attract customers, perhaps attract investors, and just generally EVangelize. To organize the event, we partnered with a fleet industry magazine, Menadżer Floty. I was surprised to find out that they actually had a Toyota Prius Prime to bring to the event


Toyota Prius Prime #1 (er… #3) — Beats Chevy Volt, Chevy Bolt, & Nissan LEAF In May

June 3rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

As I noted last month, due to Tesla's higher and higher production rates and little insight into where those cars are shipped, we've decided to stop estimating Tesla's US sales/deliveries. That said, generally speaking, we expect that Tesla ships approximately 2,000–3,000 Model S and Model X each (so, 4,000–6,000 combined) to US customers. So, more likely than not, the Model S and Model X are the highest-selling electric cars in the United States


Toyota Prius Driver Test Drives Nissan LEAF

March 28th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

"Well I can tell you the first thing I like about Nissans in general — is that I love their seats — the way they hug your body. The seats in my hybrid are not as nice." Diego Alejandro continues: "This is really cool. I love all the high-tech stuff, the way it sounds when you turn it on. I like the sound. It sounds futuristic. It sounds like a jet."

Fully Autonomous Teslas … Largest Solar Farm … Toyota Prius Prime Review … (CleanTechnica Top ~30)

January 29th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

It was a rather wild week — for reasons I don't need to repeat — and it was also a bit of an atypical week for topics that took the crowd by storm here on CleanTechnica. Yes, Tesla held its usual spot at the top of the tables — and all over the top 20. But we also had popular stories about the Toyota Prius Prime, Antarctic Larsen C ice shelf, and nuclear cargo shipping, for example. Have a look at the most popular stories of the past week

Finding The Elusive Prius Prime (+ Toyota Prius Prime Review)

January 26th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Going into 2017, I wanted to test drive some of the new plug-in hybrids hitting the market. Unfortunately, I found the newest plug-in hybrid EVs (with the exception of the 2017 Chevy Volt) difficult if not impossible to find in my area (in a populous part of Florida, which is ranked 5th for EV sales in the US). After a disappointing call to the Toyota dealership closest to me (no luck), I called around to find that I would have to drive quite a distance to have a first-hand look at a Prius Prime

January 13th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Despite earlier assumptions that the new plug-in electric Toyota Prius Prime would be available nationwide, there have been numerous reports in recent days that those outside of California are having trouble ordering one. And even sometimes that these would-be-buyers are being told that the model won't be sold outside of California

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric Steals Energy Efficiency Title From Toyota Prius Prime

November 24th, 2016 | by James Ayre

While the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime plug-in hybrid managed to take the title of "most energy efficient car" just a few months ago, it's already lost it — the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric has managed to outperform Toyota's offering and all other cars on the market according to the US EPA's testing system
