3 Banks Funding Fossil Fuels The Most Keep Telling You To Sell Tesla Stock [TSLA]

November 12th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

A few weeks ago, thanks to a friendly Tesla fan on Twitter, The Guardian, and Rainforest Action Network, I shared the news that the top 3 banks funding fossil fuel development also — through a different arm — are providing bearish forecasts for Tesla [TSLA] and recommending traders sell the stock rather than buy it. The update this week: despite a surprise profit in quarter 3 and much of the market swinging in the other direction, the Tesla analysts at these top 3 fossil fuel funders are holding steady on their bearish stance and recommendation to sell

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

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
