Fresh Buyer’s Guide For Used Electric Cars

October 31st, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

I drive a used EV. It's the best car I've ever driven. The most energy efficient, lightest footprint vehicle (except my bicycle) I've owned, and I love the instant torque. It is smooth and safe. Best of all -- it does not smell like gas vehicles, which give me headaches


Tesla Earnings Call: My (Overdue) Analysis

October 29th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

I published an article in my TSLA FUD series on October 23rd about what I was hoping to see from the Tesla 3rd quarter shareholder call. I stated before any earnings were released that I was far less concerned about the actual per-share earnings and much more interested in a set of bullet points regarding where Tesla was with various upcoming projects. Later that day, Tesla reported earnings and they were widely regarded as a home run by analysts


Aluminum-Air Battery … Chevy Bolt & Hyundai Kona vs. Tesla Model 3 Sales … The Mistake Of Buying A Tesla Competitor — CleanTechnica Top 20

October 28th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of the past week were led by a (somewhat wild) claim of an aluminum-air battery breakthrough. Yup, really. After that, it was almost all Tesla — Tesla Model 3 sales compared to other top EV sales, buying a gas "luxury car" competitor to a Tesla, Tesla disruption in Norway, Elon Musk and Tesla proving naysayers wrong, a Tesla fire, Tesla software updates


It’s About More Than The Tesla [TSLA] Short Burn

October 27th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

The LA Times has published an article talking about how Elon Musk kept his promise regarding the Tesla short burn of the century and I just wanted to remind people that it's more than just burning shorts. Of course, we are speaking in metaphors here, and not literally setting people on fire. A "short burn" is practically a technical term in the investment world


Why Is Tesla Now The Most Valuable American Automaker?

October 27th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I cannot speak for the rest of the $58.78 billion market cap of Tesla [TSLA], but from my perspective as a tiny, tiny, tiny shareholder and as someone who has obsessively covered Tesla professionally for several years, I've got a few thoughts on why it is Tesla has surpassed GM and Ford to become the most valuable American automaker. Let's look at this in 7 parts


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

October 24th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Tesla beat the street. 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

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)


3 Banks Funding Fossil Fuels The Most Are Tesla [TSLA] Bears

October 23rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Thanks to some work by Rainforest Action Network and The Guardian, as well as a post from a member of a Tesla forum, I recently wrote an article highlighting that the #1 fossil fuel development financier happens to also be an extreme Tesla [TSLA] bear


Tesla [TSLA] FUD: The Earnings Are Coming!

October 23rd, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

There are a slew of articles right now telling wildly different stories about what we should expect when Tesla reports its earnings on October 23rd after the bell.
