Tesla’s Computer Vision Tech Rockin’ It, Tesla Ventilator Donations — CleanTechnica Top 20

April 27th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Perhaps society is rolling back toward normality after all — the most popular articles on CleanTechnica last week were once again led by a few Tesla stories, including two about Tesla vehicles! Yes, one COVID-19/ventilator story still slipped into the top 3, and a few coronavirus-related stories hit the rest of the top 20 ... because cancelling society comes with some major side effects


EV Total Cost of Ownership Calculator, Louisiana COVID-19 Crisis — CleanTechnica Top 20

April 6th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

A cool electric vehicle total cost of ownership calculator from a California utility (for its region), the horrible situation the state of Louisiana is in with regards to the coronavirus epidemic and COVID-19, coming gas station bankruptcies, and Elon Musk's offer of ventilators to any hospital urgently needing them led CleanTechnica's list of the most popular stories last week


Tesla/SpaceX-Provided Masks & Ventilators … Tesla Model Y Tidbits … VW ID.3 Launch — CleanTechnica Top 20

March 22nd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica articles of the past week, naturally, included a few pieces related to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic that's shutting down half the world. Otherwise, hot topics were the Tesla Model Y (have to wonder how much this vehicle would dominate some portions of the news and public consciousness if not for COVID-19), the Volkswagen ID.3 and overall ID lineup/strategy, and other EV and Tesla news and analyses


Perovskite Solar Cells … Toyota Driving Off A Hybrid Cliff … The Boring Company’s 1st Vegas Tunnel — #CleanTechnica Top 20

February 24th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories last week involved perovskite solar cell research and projections (a hot topic for the past few — or several — years), Toyota's continued focus on hybrids (considered by many to be a death knell for the hybrid leader and 100% electric laggard), and The Boring Company's first of two Las Vegas tunnels


10 Worst & Best Things About Owning Tesla Model 3 … Tesla Alien Tech … Tesla Solarglass Roof Installation — #CleanTechnica Top 20

February 3rd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories last week included a top 10 list of the best things about owning a Tesla Model 3 and the worst things about owning a Tesla Model 3. (Many of the items on the lists relate to any EV, and almost all of them relate to any Tesla.) Another top story was Elon Musk's comments in a recent interview that something akin to "alien technology" is coming. One more top story is a CleanTechnica original on getting  Tesla Solarglass Roof installed


Sony Electric Car … Australian Fire Insanity … Zombie Solar Energy Storage System — CleanTechnica Top 20

January 14th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The biggest, hottest, most enticing CleanTechnica stories last week were led by Sony unveiling an electric car, the impossible-to-comprehend scale of this month's Australian wildfires, and a solar energy storage device from the 1980s that has come back to life. You may have noticed something unusual by now — there wasn't a single Tesla story in the top 3! That's the first time in a long time, and ironic considering that Tesla stock [TSLA] went bonkers last week (and is still going bonkers)


Tesla Cybertruck vs. Garage … Dutch EV Sales Explosion … 2012 Model S Still Beats New Non-Tesla EVs — Top 20 CleanTechnica Stories of December

January 2nd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Cybertruck may be "old news" by now (ah, the not-so-endearing ADD of the internet), but a piece of ours explaining why it doesn't really need a garage was still king of the hill last month. Tesla took silver too, with a story explaining that the 2012 Tesla Model S still has superior specs to new 2020 EV entrants from other companies than Tesla. In third was a piece on world-leading research from our friend Mark Z. Jacobson and several colleagues on how the world could be a galaxy-leading 100% renewable energy planet!


Tesla Cybertrucks Don’t Need Garages … 2012 Tesla Model S Beats 2020 EV Competitors … Dutch EV Sales Explosion Soon The New Normal — CleanTechnica Top 20

December 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The top three stories on CleanTechnica last week were some writer reflections or analysis on Tesla vehicles and the burgeoning electric vehicle (EV) market as a whole. They explained why a Tesla Cybertruck doesn't need to park in a garage, that a 2012 Tesla Model S is still unbeaten by non-Tesla competitors — including EVs coming in 2020, and why the huge growth in EV sales in the Netherlands is something we should get used to


Tesla Backup Gateway 2 … Bank of America UK EV Cost of Ownership Study … Tesla Revenue Growth — #CleanTechnica Top 20

December 16th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

What caught readers' eyes the most on CleanTechnica last week? That would be the new Tesla Backup Gateway 2, which looks like a mini Powerwall; a titillating study on EV total cost of ownership in the UK that Bank of American Merrill Lynch conducted and shared with CleanTechnica; and a commentary on Tesla's revenue growth juxtaposed against Tesla critics' seemingly never-ending pessimism, which is typically very misplaced


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
