Tesla Model 3 V3 Supercharging Times: 2% To 100% State of Charge (Video)

November 18th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

VegasModel3 posted a video that answers the most asked EV question I've encountered. Although, the answer to this question is particular to the Tesla Model 3. It won't answer the question for all EVs. That question is typically the beginning question before someone delves further into the world of electric cars

Kazakhstan To Tesla: Welcome, Elon Musk & Tesla

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Kazakhstan now has its first Tesla Supercharger. This is evidence of yet another promise by Elon Musk that has been kept. During the Tesla Model Y event, while Elon Musk was talking, someone mentioned Kazakhstan in the audience and Elon said, "Actually, we have some great supporters in Kazakhstan." Elon followed that up -- after several loud cheers -- with a promise: "We will build Superchargers in Kazakhstan! You heard it right here."


13 Non-Tesla Electric Vehicle Stories You Might Have Missed

November 15th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There's too much electric vehicle news to cover every week to have full stories on all of the pieces. Writers pick the stories that interest them, which leaves many less glamorous items (especially non-Tesla news) on the bench. To make up for that a bit and highlight several stories that I think shouldn't be skipped, below is a roundup of recent electric vehicle news


Tesla Superchargers in Tunisia?

November 14th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tunisia is not only the first democratic Arab country, but it is also a place for Tesla owners and advocates. Tesla owners in Tunisia have already made Tesla road trips possible for Tesla owners living or traveling through Tunisia thanks to their initiatives to install Tesla wall chargers in several locations throughout the country. Tesla Club Tunisia has also now taken the initiative to bring Tesla's Supercharging network to Tunisia. Although they are doing this from their own funds, the goal is to make it easier for Tesla owners in Tunisia and traveling through the small country to have access to charging

Tesla Critics Don’t Understand (Or Just Ignore) Tesla’s Mission

November 13th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I used to find the debate between Tesla critics (most notably short sellers) and Tesla fans as somewhat interesting but mostly straightforward. Tesla critics somehow thought that Tesla inherently couldn't make profits on its products. Tesla fans thought and explained how Tesla could. Tesla critics thought Tesla couldn't learn the art and skill of efficient, smooth mass production. Tesla fans noted many times, this isn't rocket science (ahem). Tesla critics thought major automakers would come out with electric vehicles superior to what Tesla offered and would thus kill the company. Tesla fans highlighted Tesla's leadership in batteries, software, self-driving tech, design, customer communications, and overall reputation

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 Model 3 Standard Range Plus Now Supercharges At Up To 170 kW — Charts!

November 5th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

The latest Tesla software update (2019.36.1) has unlocked the full DC charging potential of the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+). The Model 3 SR+, with this update, has a 170 kW charging peak, up from the previous 100–105 kW peak. This means that the SR+ battery charge rate (C-rate) is now approximately in line with that of the Model 3 Long Range variants, albeit scaled for the different battery size

October 27th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

According to The Iceland Review and an announcement from the Government of Iceland’s website, a grant of over ISK 30 million will help support the shift to electric cars and other electric vehicles in Iceland by increasing charging infrastructure. In fact, the new capacity will be for the charging of 110 electric vehicles at any given time


Aptera’s Green Recipe May Break Real Outlaw Speed Records

October 26th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Aptera was big news almost a decade ago, but failed to make it to production. Now, it's back and has bigger plans than ever. Not only does the company plan on building the original vehicle, but it's also aiming for 1,000 miles of range on a charge. On top of that, Aptera is hoping to add enough solar power to cover the daily driving needs of most American drivers without plugging the car in at all


Takeaways from the Clean Fuels Summit in New Orleans

October 25th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Louisiana Clean Fuels and Clean Cities Coalition recently teamed up to bring the Clean Fuels Summit to New Orleans. This was an event that landed me in the Harrah's Casino Hotel by the Riverwalk, where I could hear the blasts from the river cruises nearby. On the evening before the summit, LCF held an awards ceremony where Executive Director Ann Vail honored several partners and businesses that help to advance the nation’s environmental, economic, and energy security by supporting local actions to diversify transportation fuel options

According to Bloomberg, "The electric-car maker earned $1.86 a share in the third quarter, exceeding the most optimistic projection by a wide margin and beating the consensus estimate for a 24-cent loss." Yes, Tesla showed a profit. And the stock price soared as "shares climbed as much as 21% to $308.50" in after hours trading after 3Q earnings were reported by the electric automaker


The Nobel Prize, Exxon & The Beginning Of A Battery Revolution

October 23rd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

It would be hard to think of any technology more critical to today’s technological wonders than the lithium-ion battery, which is found in everything from tiny hearing aids to giant power plants. Three pioneers of our “rechargeable world” — John Goodenough, Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino — have now won a well-deserved Nobel Prize in chemistry for their work in developing lithium-ion energy storage technology (as reported by Bloomberg)
