The Tesla CyberRoadster Needs To Exist

December 10th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesmanian founder Vincent last week shared a really cool concept of a Tesla CyberRoadster on Twitter, and it needs to be real. Imagine the new Tesla Roadster crossed with the Cybertruck. It's a nice blend of two trendsetting vehicles that also result in zero emissions when driving around town or through the countryside


Tesla [TSLA] FUD: “Elon Time”

December 10th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

Tesla stock has been on a solid run and the bears are claiming this is in large part driven by Elon Musk's claims regarding new Tesla products that won't come true, or will but will be ultra late due to "Elon Time," commonly understood to mean that Elon makes a claim and then Tesla is always late on it. I wanted to take a quick look at that, so here goes


Ark Invest’s Cathie Wood Talks Tesla Cybertruck

December 10th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Cathie Wood, founder of Ark Invest, yesterday sat down with CNBC's SqawkTalk to talk about the Tesla Cybertruck. Tesla, which is the top holding in several of Ark's funds, has Elon Musk as its CEO, and it's natural the anchor wanted to know about what Wood's thoughts were on the Cybertruck, as well as on other matters such as the defamation trial where Elon was found not guilty

December 9th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Children from “Die Arche” (The Ark) organization in Berlin were recently invited to discover the world of electric mobility at "the DRIVE. Volkswagen Group Forum." E-mobility will be normal by the time they are older, but how do they react to it today

Why Everything’s A Tesla Killer: Tesla Stuffing, For Science

December 9th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

For both Tesla fans and Tesla critics (including the extreme versions of both kinds of Tesla-interested people), there's definitely one thing all of us in and out of Tesla-dom can agree on: the "Tesla Killer" thing is getting old (even for a young brand like Tesla). We have our own different reasons for thinking the Tesla killer thing is wrong, but it's well known that as a meme it's not only cliche but absurd to say every new EV or mobility service is going to kill Tesla, or to compare everything to Tesla

December 9th, 2019 | by Winter Wilson

In our first ever episode of a new "EV Boom" podcast interview series, Zach Shahan sits down with Roger Atkins, founder of Electric Vehicles Outlook Ltd and self-described “jack of all trades, master of none,” to discuss Roger’s insights into lithium-ion batteries and the electric vehicle industry


Tesla Model 3 = #3 in California … Tesla Cybertruck Spy Video … — CleanTechnica Top 20

December 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Cybertruck continued to blow up last week, and stimulated many different articles. Nonetheless, the Tesla Model 3 slipped through the pack to take the #1 position on the top stories list. A few more Model 3 stories, some Ford stories, a few on Tesla gigafactories, and a little bit of solar just about wrapped up the rest of the top 20 list. Check out the details below


The #1 Thing I Love About Our Tesla Model 3 That No One Talks About

December 8th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We spend a lot of time in the car, and a lot of that time involves actually doing stuff, not just driving. That leads into the thing I love about our Tesla Model 3 that gets very little attention — and when it does get attention, often gets negative attention!

December 8th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

CleanTechnica has a new report out today, one highlighting the results of several thousand surveys of electric vehicle drivers in the US, Canada, and Europe.

Tesla’s “Premium Connectivity” Will Now Set Owners Back $10/Month

December 8th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

We all knew this day would come, and for better or worse, that day is here. For Tesla owners who purchased their vehicles on or after July 1, 2018, Tesla is now starting to charge $9.99 per month for data connectivity for a select set of features bundled into what it calls Premium Connectivity at the end of this year


Bank of America Merrill Lynch: UK Tesla Model 3 & Other EV 3-Year Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Shows EVs Much Cheaper than Fossil Competitors

December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We've published numerous analyses of our own on the total cost of ownership of the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen ID.3 compared to top gasoline competitors. However, if you don't trust research from CleanTechnica, perhaps you'll find the work of a major international financial firm more palatable. A recently published report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) that was passed along to CleanTechnica dove into this topic for the


US Gas Vehicle Sales Up Big In November, Still Down In 2019

December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales by company or brand is one of the oddest-feeling things I've done in my decade or so covering cleantech. Perhaps that's because the focus is on tracking non-clean tech. The fact is, though, it shocks me every month to see how many people still buy gasoline cars. Gasoline cars are far worse than electric cars currently on the market for the same cost (or even less). Nonetheless, there are so many people buying clunky, noisy, slow, high-maintenance, low-tech, high-depreciation gasoline vehicles every single day. Objectively, it doesn't make sense
