January 6th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

It’s always fun to talk about Elon Musk’s tweets and tokes, but when it comes to predicting Tesla’s long-term financial prospects, savvy observers understand that the two metrics that matter are the demand for the company’s products and the margin of profit it earns on each unit.

London Lifestyle Columnist: Tesla Model S Is “Madly Enjoyable”

January 4th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Electric vehicles have passed through the early adopter stage. The greenies, techies, and lovers of acceleration are all driving them already. If Elon Musk’s dream of banishing fossil fuels is to be realized, then Tesla needs to start winning over the rest of the auto market — those for whom cars are not an object of fascination, but simply a necessary appliance, or perhaps a status symbol

January 2nd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

On February 6th of 2003, George W Bush gave a speech in which he touted the benefits of a hydrogen economy. Far from being farsighted or progressive, it may well have been one of the worst examples of greenwashing in our lifetime. The gist of the speech was that we should avoid raising fuel economy standards and deploying clean technologies such as electric cars and renewable energy and instead pursue a transition from fossil fuels to a hydrogen economy

January 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla is what stock market pundits call a “story stock.” But, in fact, there’s more than one story here, and there are several very different reasons to invest, or not invest, in the innovative automaker. Some boosters want to be part of Elon Musk’s bold mission to change the world, while others simply see a company with meteoric growth and fanatical brand loyalty. Some skeptics point to the unlikelihood of a small startup scaling the auto industry’s proverbially punishing barriers to entry, while others just can’t get past Musk’s unconventional personality and snarky tweets

January 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

At some point this fall, someone somewhere drove the millionth electric vehicle sold in the US off a car lot and onto the road (Europe passed the one-million-EV milestone in August, and China reached it about a year ago, The Guardian reports).

What Are Tesla’s Short Sellers Thinking Now?

December 31st, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you have to give the short sellers credit for their dedication. Hedge fund manager Mark Spiegel even follows the market while taking a bath — two computer screens perched near the tub keep him apprised of the latest ill winds.

Autocar’s John Evans spent a day interviewing drivers at one of Britain’s busiest Supercharger locations, and compared the experience to playing whack-a-mole. “No sooner have you finished quizzing one [Tesla driver] than another has wafted silently into another bay, plugged in and gone to Starbucks.
