Volkswagen & Ford vs. Tesla? Or Volkswagen & Ford vs. Toyota & Honda?

December 1st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Yes, the Tesla Cybertruck stole the thunder from Ford's Mustang Mach-E, which was dominating electric transportation news for a few days, and it seems like ages ago that Volkswagen unveiled the ID.3. Nonetheless, as much as we want to know what the consumer demand will be for the Tesla Cybertruck, perhaps a bigger question is trying to figure out where Ford and Volkswagen are headed with electric vehicles. Tesla will be here, Tesla will sell EVs — a lot of them. What about Ford? What about Volkswagen? And which models and brands are their electric vehicle offerings really competing with


Plug-In Hybrids Pull Up Europe’s Plug-In Market — October EV Sales Report

November 29th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The European passenger plug-in vehicle (PEV) market recorded some 48,000 registrations in October (+46%), and this time it was the plug-in hybrids (+75% growth year over year, or YoY) that pulled the PEV market up. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) remained at cruising speed (+26%), leading to a nearly even (51% BEVs / 49% PHEVs, vs. 65% / 35% YTD) breakdown between both technologies in October

Volkswagen Seemingly Believes A Common Tesla Myth

November 16th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

A common Tesla myth is that you have to be wealthy to own one. In a blog post on its website, Volkswagen says that it is "making attractive and affordable electric cars for everyone. E-cars for millions – not for millionaires."

Tesla Model & Model 3 Visual Comparison … Tesla 1-Pedal Driving … Potential 10,000/Month EVs — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular stories of the past week on CleanTechnica were led by a visual comparison of the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, followed by Paul Fosse's early review of one-pedal driving in a Tesla Model 3 (following a recent software update many of us still haven't gotten). My second piece on non-Tesla electric vehicle models that might one day reach 10,000 sales a month was in third, and an answer to the never-ending question of whether Teslas work in snow was right behind it. For the rest of the top 20, and to actually see the headlines and click through to fun articles you missed, scroll down below


Is Volkswagen Pushing The EV Revolution To The Tipping Point?

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Okay, let's be frank: Tesla pushed the EV revolution up to today. Volkswagen Group execs, to their credit and honor, have basically said the same. Good on them. Also, before I completely shift away from Tesla and focus on Volkswagen, I certainly do think Tesla has a multi-year advantage on some key EV matters and I drive a Tesla Model 3 because I think it's the best car on the market. Nonetheless, "first followers" are often just as important as the leaders

How Much Is Tesla FSD (Full Self Driving) Worth For Me?

October 18th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

My Renault Twingo 1.5 dCi is 7.5 years old, and while it is a great little car, it is not electric. With new longer range models that have less problematic prices, the time to switch has finally arrived for me


The Big Auto Fairy Tale Of Doom: The Ugly Duckling Of Audi That May Never Become A Swan

October 12th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

It seemed to me that Audi (under the VAG Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft) with the extravagant technical achievement of the A2 had made a profound statement of peak efficiency of the internal combustion engine that it seemed impossible to surpass, and the next big surprise from this respected automobile giant would be an electric long-range model. I was certain I would be trading in my diesel A2 with an electric A2 soon enough
