Win A Tesla Model 3 & Help People In Need

October 22nd, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

You could win a Tesla Model 3 by helping a nonprofit that helps people in need. The nonprofit is Project Angel Food and it provides meals and counseling for people living with serious illnesses such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other deadly diseases. Project Angel Food was a response to the AIDS crisis, but now it helps people suffering from all types of life-ending diseases


Tesla Model Y Production … Fusion Energy … Tesla Model 3 Range After 50,000 Miles — #CleanTechnica Top 20

October 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The top 20 CleanTechnica stories of the week were led by a Tesla Model Y production plan an insider leaked to us, which is both super exciting and something to be cautious about. The second most popular piece was a story about Tesla Model 3 range after 50,000 miles of driving. The black swan story of the week that climbed its way into the top 3 was on the topic of fusion energy. (Proceed with caution if you plan to read about that news item.) For the rest of the top 20, skim down below and click the ones that tickle your interest. 


But No, Seriously: What’s It Really Like To Work With Elon Musk?

October 20th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Like most movers and shakers in history, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is a complicated figure. There’s been no shortage of “What’s it like to work with Elon?” articles. Many of them have a predetermined premise: fans find him to be a wise and inspiring leader, an out-of-the-box thinker; the anti-EV crowd is eager to paint a picture of an impulsive, hot-tempered prima donna


Bob Lutz Talks Tesla & GM EVs On Autoline Network

October 19th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In a panel interview on Autoline Afterhours, Bob Lutz, former GM Vice Chair, weighed in on Tesla, among other topics. Frank Markus of MotorTrend, Gary Vasilah of Automotive Design & Production, and John McElroy of Autoline TV rounded out the panel. One of the questions asked was posed by a college graduate who wants to get a job at General Motors, which led to electric vehicles, Tesla, and Elon Musk


7 Things Tesla Couldn’t Do

October 19th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

One year ago this week, I published a story about 8 "impossible" goals that Tesla had achieved. The idea actually stemmed from a simple joke I sent Elon Musk. I thought that was so funny (the joke somewhat, sending it to Elon Musk more so) that it inspired a full article. In fact, it and a few other pieces inspired a whole "Tesla flashbacks" series. The fact is, on any given day, there are various "concerns" about Tesla's future from Tesla short sellers and other people who benefit if Tesla fails, but when you look back on those after a year or more, it's clear they were typically nonsense that didn't warrant a minute of anyone's time


The Porsche Taycan Premiere, From A Tesla Owner’s Perspective

October 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Porsche earns points for style and making its grand entry into the EV world amongst an impressive backdrop. The goal of the day, and the time since that day, was to find out what the Taycan is built for and what the Porsche mission is with it. Gas and diesel vehicles still have a place in the product line, including hybrid models, so is the Taycan seen by Porsche as a corner jewel in the case or as a foundational stone for an eventual 100% electric Porsche lineup


The Adventures Of Mr. Me & His Noble Steed Colin — The Norwegian Wave Trophy Dog Mode Campers

October 18th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

Due to the positive response I got on the weird fact/fiction format I used in my delusional Frankfurt roadtrip story, I figured why not shamelessly spin that idea and try this fun way of getting information across by bringing to life the character theme that JR250 so brilliantly constructed about my Model 3 (named Colin) and me in the comments of that story, namely: The adventures of Mr. Me and his noble steed Colin. 


Tesla Smart Summon Is Deemed Safe Enough & Came Just In Time

October 17th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Some argue that Tesla Smart Summon should not be released because it is "beta" software. That is not a strong argument. According to Lifewire.com: Beta refers to the phase in software development between the alpha phase and the release candidate phase. Beta software is generally considered "complete" by the developer but still not ready for general use due to a lack of testing "in the wild."


The Worldwide King Of Battery Capacity Is Tesla

October 17th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla dominates the world’s electric vehicle market by any measure. The company’s Model 3 is currently the best-selling vehicle of any kind in Norway and the Netherlands, and it’s by far the best-selling electric vehicle just about everywhere in North America and Europe


Nothing’s Static: Significant Cost Drops Brought Us Tesla Model 3 — What Will Continued Cost Drops Mean For Tesla?

October 15th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Humans are funny creatures. We think of our species as being extremely smart, but in actuality we are really quite bad at logical thinking. We even have inherent difficulty genuinely comprehending and acting on some well known facts of life. As an example of our limited comprehension skills, Elon Musk recently noted that we can't really see exponential growth in action

October 15th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Demand for the Tesla Model 3 in Australia is still going strong, according to an article just published by The Driven. According to an informal survey of soon-to-be-Model 3 owners, many of the long-anticipated deliveries in Australia haven't taken place yet, and this reflects on how strong demand is for the Model 3 in Australia


Rich Rebuilds Offers DIY Guide To Annual Tesla Model 3 Service

October 15th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Rich Rebuilds recently stepped back from the operations at his new digs (at the Electrified Garage) to give his viewers an inside look at what all goes into the annual service for a 1 year old Tesla Model 3. He talks with his lead tech, who previously worked for Tesla in their service department, to deconstruct not only the tasks Tesla performs during the first annual service, but the why behind each
