December 6th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Trump's tariffs have harmed Americans by raising prices, cutting jobs, and losing the US billions in investment opportunities. From 2017–2021, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) expects 62,000 fewer jobs in the solar industry — which is more than the entire US coal mining industry

November 28th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

A Gigafactory For Berlin

November 17th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

When people ask me how it is possible that most of my predictions about Tesla are correct, my answer is, "Those are not my predictions. You just have to listen carefully to Elon Musk, and do it twice, better trice." Elon tells the truth, unless he is joking, and he likes joking but not if it's about his mission to change the world to sustainable transportation

Daimler’s Crisis: Needs Something More Musk

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In an analysis by the acclaimed German news site Spiegel, the author points out Daimler's crisis and that it needs "something more Musk, please." The article, written in German, made several interesting points, but the main point is that Daimler is facing a crisis and Tesla is just one part of that crisis. The author of the article believes (and so do I) that perhaps Daimler's CEO, Ola Källenius, needs to be more like Elon Musk to help save his company


Tesla = 3rd Most Valuable Automaker In The World

November 13th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

With the companies recent stock price rise, Tesla [TSLA] has surpassed Daimler for the #3 spot on the list of most valuable automakers in the world. This is on the heels of news of Gigafactory 4's location — Berlin — which makes the milestone especially interesting. Many may see Tesla coming to Germany as a slap in the face of some of the legacy automakers, but I see it simply as Tesla establishing another foothold as it climbs its own personal mountain. That mountain is its goal of accelerating society's transition to 100% sustainable energy

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Continuing our discussion of Tesla and David Havasi's long history at Tesla, we took up where we left off, talking about early Model S days at Tesla. At the time that, Tesla had a gigantic factory in Fremont with almost nothing in it other than big, wild dreams and post-apocalyptic images of Blade Runner and The Highlander flashing through their heads as they looked across the expansive space


Tesla Inside Out — Tesla History From 7-Year Insider

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently met a gentleman named David Havasi while charging our Tesla Model 3 at a ChargePoint station at a Whole Foods I frequently visit. He recognized me from CleanTechnica and I quickly learned he worked at Tesla for 7 years, until just recently. We got talking, talking, talking, and talking. I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!

November 7th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider
