Tesla Model 3 Standard Range — 1st Video Overview

April 21st, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

The base Tesla Model 3 Standard Range recently started getting delivered in the US and expert EV reviewer Alex Dykes ("Alex on Autos") received his personal vehicle just this weekend. Alex gives us a quick tour of the interior and finds that the trim, features, and materials appear to be largely the same as the Standard Range Plus version


Diving Into The Tesla Model 3, BMW i3, & Chevy Bolt (Video)

April 19th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Munro & Associates in Auburn Hills, Michigan, is in the business of taking cars apart. The company’s teardown reports reveal the juicy details of every single component — how they work, where they came from, and how much they cost. Automakers pay sizable sums for these reports, in order to figure out what their competitors are up to. Sandy Munro’s 2018 teardown of a Tesla Model 3 delivered some important insights into the California carmaker’s strengths and weaknesses. What about other electric cars


Reuters Spreads Electric Vehicle FUD On Behalf Of Laggard Japanese Auto

April 18th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

In a classic FUD piece penned by a long-term cheerleader of Japanese OEMs, Reuters — either in ignorance or in deceit — is spreading falsehoods and negativity about EVs. The piece directly quotes from engineers and managers on the payroll of Honda and Toyota, Japanese automakers both known to be unwilling to offer electric vehicles


The Aston Martin DB6 EV Story Told By Fully Charged Agent Jonny Smith

April 10th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

Having tried myself — and failed miserably — to convert my old Volvo, and noticing how the Duke & Duchess departed Windsor Castle in a Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero last year, this video caught my eye as soon as it left the editing room of the guys at Fully Charged. And maybe you already heard: Bond himself is going EV in the next movie in his iconic series, driving the Aston Martin Rapide E. Oh dear, what has the world come to


From The Founder’s Desk: The Business Of CleanTechnica

April 7th, 2019 | by Scott Cooney

Many regular readers turn to CleanTechnica as their #1 source of cleantech news. However, I'm guessing that most readers, regular or otherwise, don't give much thought beyond that. Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes here in our digital and globally dispersed offices? Or thought, "I wish CleanTechnica would do...."


Tesla Brings “S3XY” To Life With Model Y Launch

March 16th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

After so much anticipation, Elon Musk walked on stage at the LA Design Studio in Hawthorne, California, and introduced Tesla's newest addition to its lineup, the Model Y. Fortunately, Model Y looks to share much commonality with Model 3, which could translate to a production ramp that moves more rapidly than prior new cars introduced by Tesla


Tesla Is Following A Timeline Laid Out Many Months Ago, Yet Critics Are Acting Surprised

March 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

This is a quickie. Sometimes, to set the record straight, quick & clean is the best way to go. I honestly have a hard time determining when Tesla critics are intentionally misleading people and when they are just being idiotic. This past week or so is no exception, but it's hard to believe it was the latter. (You'd have to be really idiotic to so blatantly get the story wrong on at least one of the two big Tesla news items I'm discussing below.)


Tesla Model 3 — As Cheap As A Toyota Or Honda But 3× Better

March 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We're at a pretty wild time in automotive history. We've got a car on the market that has better performance than a BMW 3 Series or 4 Series, is safer than any other passenger car, has a "fuel efficiency" rating of about 120 MPGe, and has a 5-year total cost of ownership comparable with a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord


A Short History Of Tesla Critics’ Claims

March 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

As time goes on, some things become clear, and some urban legends grow in scope and popularity. I've found it pretty interesting to go back in time and compare Tesla critics' forecasts and predictions to what actually happened. But I realized I've never done a really short and simple summary of that history. There's surely more that could be added, but here's my summary of Tesla critics' claims over the years


Should Google Treat Fossil Fuel Companies Like It Treats Tobacco & Firearm Companies?

March 2nd, 2019 | by The Beam

2018 saw a number of different divestments from global institutions in the fossil fuel sector and their subsidiaries. While the move likely won’t fix global warming, it has changed the way in which citizens understand how deeply rooted many organizations are in coal, oil, and gas companies. After divesting, firms also shudder at the thought of being de-platformed. Consider the advertising giant Google, for instance


Host Meme Review?

February 9th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

I was confused at first, too. Then, I looked into it. Working with top YouTube channels is a great way to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy by appealing to younger people
