Ford Mustang Mach-E Details Warrant Thunderous Welcome — CleanTechnica Review

November 17th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Lots of ink has already been spilled over the new Ford Mustang Mach-E. With press leaks, bloggers breaking embargo, and even Ford accidentally publishing information about the vehicle, most of this information is already out there on the internet, and some of it is even in prior articles on CleanTechnica


Polestar Pricing … Electric Mazda … Tesla Model 3 = #6 In USA — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of October were led by Polestar and Mazda. Seriously. No offense to Polestar or Mazda (okay, some offense to Polestar and Mazda), but I wouldn't have seen that coming a mile away. Does this show a great thirst for more EV news beyond Tesla and more serious EV entries? Possibly. Or it was just some lucky timing and catchy headlines. Or all of the above. In any case, that's where things landed in October. Tesla still dominated the top 20, with 15 out of 20 stories, but it was an interesting phenomenon to see the company almost pushed out of the top


Tesla Model 3 Trunk Organizer & Frunk Cooler From EVANNEX — CleanTechnica Review

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We recently received a Tesla Model 3 trunk organizer and a frunk/trunk cooler from EVANNEX. Aside from floor mats to protect the original Tesla-installed flooring, I consider these the top two Model 3 aftermarket items that just about everyone could benefit from. (Though, pneumatic trunk and frunk hood openers have me drooling, and I do have some other fun aftermarket products to review.)


Arcimoto’s Fun EV Is A Blast To Ride

November 2nd, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

I've had a love affair with Arcimoto for the past 6 years, but don't tell my wife. It's true, I knew Arcimoto was the right company when I first saw it at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2013. I became convinced when I visited the company's headquarters


Tesla One-Pedal Driving Update — In A Word, Perfecter

November 2nd, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Last night before going to bed I noticed one of my friends on Twitter (Sofiaan) was getting a new software update (2019.36.1). I read a little about it and then I noticed I got it too! I set it to install and went to sleep. When I woke up, I took Henry for a spin to try out the new features. Before I give you my impressions, I'll go over the 4 enhancements


Tesla Model 3 Floor Mats From Tesmanian — CleanTechnica Review

October 27th, 2019 | by Marika

When you buy a new car, your new car, you want it to stay in a perfect, kind of new way for as long as possible. At the beginning, you wipe each little mark off, get rid of every little spec as soon as you see it, vacuum every piece of sand (as if it was even possible living in Florida after going to the beach…). But, let’s be honest, sharing this new car with two little kids is not easy at all. The car is not a museum where you are not allowed to touch anything, right? And those kids are not museum visitors


How Tesla Will Roll Out Full Self Driving, + Q3 Safety Update

October 25th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

During Tesla's 3rd quarter conference call last night, Elon Musk got a very important question regarding the widespread skepticism that Tesla will be able to roll out "feature complete full self driving" by the end of this year (only 69 days from now). This questioner asked him to define what "feature complete" means and give a list of features that establish a baseline. He answered it this way


“If You Didn’t Buy A Tesla, You Just Made A Mistake”

October 24th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said something similar to the headline above on the quarterly Tesla conference call a few hours ago. It perhaps made me smile and laugh more than anything else on the conference call. The reason is simple, and it's also why I'm keeping this article short


Tesla Smart Summon Chases Kids (Video From Inside Car)

October 12th, 2019 | by Marika

Okay, so I’m sitting in the car waiting for my whole family (husband and two little girls) to come back from a quick stop for shopping. The car is plugged in and charging at a Tesla Supercharger (thank you to buyers who used our referral code). My husband came up with a funny phrase to describe a "park & plug" state, which is "plark." So, you could say I'm sitting in a "plarked" car in a Tesla "plarking lot."


Smooth

October 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Since I got the Tesla Model 3 a month and a half ago, I've been trying to figure out a one- or two-sentence summary of the car. It's been tough. I'm plagued by a few issues. For one, I'm used to communicating with people who know a ton about Tesla (you), whereas people in the "real world" are often not such people


BMW i3 Is A Perfect Out-Of-Town EV, Smoothly Flowing Through Mountain Roads — BMW i3 vs. The Mountain (Video)

October 6th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

The Model 3 is the standout, Zen-of-zero-emissions electric vehicle that is meeting peoples hopes and wishes straight on. Even though I don't have a Model 3, I'd agree with anyone singing Model 3 praises. I have ridden in one many times, and I've previously written about the expansive back seat experience in a Tesla Shuttle. The praise the Model 3 gets is well deserved


Lumos Matrix Helmet — The Gold Standard In Bike Safety

September 29th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

It's not often that we write reviews of a bike helmet on CleanTechnica. For most people, and for most helmets, there's nothing special. You find one that fits on your head and that meets the applicable safety standards, adjust it to fit, and go. Lumos decided to go above and beyond the normal with their new Matrix helmet. Not only does it protect your head, but it has features that can help prevent an accident from happening in the first place


How The Long Drive To Frankfurt For IAA 2019 Made Me Talk To My Tesla Model 3

September 29th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

A few days ago I told you what I thought was going on at the IAA 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and that was quite an eye opener for me. One single model stole the show. The world of automobiles will see serious change next year, when the VW ID.3 and other similar models hit the tarmac with their wheels spinning so fast the fossil fuel slurping dinosaurs won't know what hit them
