Tesla Should Advertise

June 17th, 2019 | by Barry A.F.

At this point, Tesla has awoken the giants to the need to transition to electric vehicles (EVs). They are slowly [&hellip


Tesla To Make Its Own Battery Cells? HyperChange CEO Advances Bold Theory

June 14th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

As reported here and here, there was a lot of information presented at the 2019 Tesla annual shareholder meeting. And although there were a lot of small details covered and hints given about the future, there wasn't any earth-shattering news. In my summary, I noted they didn't "let the cat out of the bag." But I didn't really know what the cat was, so I didn't comment


The Beam #9 – Voices From The Global South: Help Us Spread The Word!

June 11th, 2019 | by The Beam

Can you hear the rumble of individuals who are raising their voice in anger to demand that their government realize the scale of the climate crisis? A profound immediate systemic change is what they demand, and this upsurge of activists will not accommodate with their governments words and pledges. They want climate action and they want it now!


While Starman Is In Space, “Big Oil Strikes Back!”

June 11th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

SpaceX and Tesla are more than just companies. They are a revolution of the status quo and an inspiration for millions of people. So, when these two companies come to together for a project, the result cannot be anything other than epic. That is one way to describe the birth of Starman, who was launched into space in Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster as the payload of the very first Falcon Heavy. That means that Starman is now exploring the solar system — or is he


The Tesla Twittersphere — What Is Weird About Wanting To Have A Better Future?

June 11th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Critics of Tesla like to call anyone who likes what Tesla is doing, who buys its products, or who invests in the company "fanboys" and "fangirls," often accompanied by a negative adjective or five. I only know a few fans on Twitter who actually send unfunny or weird texts. The rest are normal people and actually pretty hilarious

June 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Criticisms of Tesla actually haven't changed much over time, especially in the deceivingly serious (or seriously deceiving) investment world. In the past 11 years or so, the same core talking points have been reused, recycled, and revisited in carousel-like cycles. Nonetheless, as one negative forecast is proven incorrect, another can sprout up


2 Species Of Luxury Vehicles: New-Age Tesla Model 3 vs. Old-World Mercedes C300

June 10th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The term “luxury” means different things to different buyers. As auto reviewer Henry Payne writes in The Detroit News, some luxury goods are highly detailed and ornate (a Rolex watch), while others offer the elegance of simplicity (an Apple watch). The Mercedes C-Class and the Tesla Model 3 represent these two contrasting luxury aesthetics. Their stylings are “as dramatically different as their gas-powered turbo-4 and electric powertrains,” writes Payne. The $63,000 Mercedes-Benz C300 is an “old-money classic,” and the $57,500 Tesla Model 3 is a “new-money rebel” (note that “money” is one thing they definitely have in common)

June 1st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica articles of the past week are listed below. I always love looking through the list, but I'm changing up what I put in the introductions of these weekly and monthly articles. I'm going to use this space to highlight my favorite CleanTechnica articles of the week. It's hard to be too picky, so they're not in order of rank, more chronological


Some Environmentalists Are Being Punked Regarding Tesla

June 1st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Generally speaking, people don't have time to become experts on a ton of subjects and can't follow the news of many different topics or industries in a careful, deep way. So, I get it, not everyone who is concerned about our climate catastrophe or political challenges is also following Tesla closely and able to cut through the misleading coverage and smear campaigns to get to the deeper stories

Tesla Model 3 Rewrites The Rules Of What A Sport Sedan Can Be, Motor Trend Reflects

May 25th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

I was so glad to see this Motor Trend comparison of the top 3 sport sedans you can buy for around $50,000, and to see that it included the Tesla Model 3, I'm tired of reading reviews comparing the Model 3 to other electric cars. Everyone knows where it stands compared to other electric cars (it beats them for the most part, unless you have special requirements, like you need an SUV), but as well as Tesla has sold car over the last year, there are still places where people have no idea about Tesla or any electric car


What’s Behind The Twisted Tesla Short Seller Psyche?

May 16th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

They’ve already launched a “media crusade,” suffered a “tsunami of hurt,” and “gone off the deep end.” However, a recent article in the Los Angeles Times reveals new depths of bizarre behavior by TSLA shorts and their allies
