Nissan, Toyota, Infiniti, & MINI USA Sales Down In October & 2019; Hyundai, Kia, Honda, BMW, Genesis, & Volvo Sales Up

November 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales has been a fascinating endeavor this past year. Unfortunately, we don't get data from some brands — Tesla, all Ford Motor Company brands, GM brands, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles brands, Jaguar Land Rover no longer report monthly sales. However, there are 17 brands that do report monthly US sales, so let's have a look at them


Teslas = 77.7% of US Electric Vehicle Sales

November 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The US electric vehicle market ... is not the most interesting. Unfortunately, we have only one mass-market electric vehicle on the market, and there are very few models available across the nation. Actually, aside from Tesla's offerings, I think only two fully electric models available at dealers practically anywhere are the Chevy Bolt and Nissan


Tesla Model & Model 3 Visual Comparison … Tesla 1-Pedal Driving … Potential 10,000/Month EVs — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular stories of the past week on CleanTechnica were led by a visual comparison of the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, followed by Paul Fosse's early review of one-pedal driving in a Tesla Model 3 (following a recent software update many of us still haven't gotten). My second piece on non-Tesla electric vehicle models that might one day reach 10,000 sales a month was in third, and an answer to the never-ending question of whether Teslas work in snow was right behind it.

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Continuing our discussion of Tesla and David Havasi's long history at Tesla, we took up where we left off, talking about early Model S days at Tesla. At the time that, Tesla had a gigantic factory in Fremont with almost nothing in it other than big, wild dreams and post-apocalyptic images of Blade Runner and The Highlander flashing through their heads as they looked across the expansive space


Tesla Gigafactory Economies of Scale Just Starting to Show in Tesla Financials

November 9th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The biggest threat to Tesla’s existence has not been the so-called “Tesla Killers” from the competition, but rather Tesla’s dependence on the capital markets to fund its growth. The lack of sustained profits made the company rely on financial markets to raise equity and debt at regular intervals to fund its operations


SolarEdge Is Building Out A New Solution For EV Charger Load Sharing

November 9th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

CleanTechnica sat down with SolarEdge co-founder and VP of marketing and product strategy, Lior Handelsman, at SPI 2019 for a nice long chat about the company's new Smart Home tech. Along the way, Lior mentioned that SolarEdge is also developing intelligent, connected EV charging tech that will allow multiple charging stations on a single circuit to load balance between themselves without exceeding the capacity of the circuit


Tesla Inside Out — Tesla History From 7-Year Insider

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently met a gentleman named David Havasi while charging our Tesla Model 3 at a ChargePoint station at a Whole Foods I frequently visit. He recognized me from CleanTechnica and I quickly learned he worked at Tesla for 7 years, until just recently. We got talking, talking, talking, and talking. I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!


Elon’s Message To Einhorn: Come Over

November 8th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In a letter to clients, hedge fund manager David Einhorn pretty much accused Elon Musk of fraud after the surprising Q3 earnings report. Elon replied to Einhorn with a message of his own
