Lotus & Hope Launch 2020 Olympics Track Weapon

December 19th, 2019 | by Jo Borrás

Hope Bicycle Technology (HB.T) recently announced the launch of an all-new, high-speed pursuit weapon that, it hopes, will give UK cyclists a competitive edge at the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. To make sure they've put their best foot forward, they've partnered with one of the most storied names in racing and engineering alike: Lotus

The Tesla CyberRoadster Needs To Exist

December 10th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Tesmanian founder Vincent last week shared a really cool concept of a Tesla CyberRoadster on Twitter, and it needs to be real. Imagine the new Tesla Roadster crossed with the Cybertruck. It's a nice blend of two trendsetting vehicles that also result in zero emissions when driving around town or through the countryside


2000 HP Electric Lotus Evija Makes Its Racetrack Debut (Video)

November 25th, 2019 | by Jo Borrás

When it debuted earlier this year, the all-electric Lotus Evija promised buyers that its electric motors would put some 2000 HP to the ground once it reached production. If true, that claim would make the Evija easily the most powerful production car on the planet, electric or otherwise


Tesla Model X vs. Audi e-tron — 100% Electric Drag Race

November 22nd, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

There is always a moment in Tesla vs. [fill in the blank] drag races that makes a waggish and direct point of contrast. The Tesla quietly zips off leaving the gasoline vehicle looking broken. In this case, though, it's at an all-electric, noiseless sprint between two vehicles benefiting from instant torque

Tesla Cybertruck tl;dr Preview: Elon Likes To Crush The Competition

November 20th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

For better or worse, consumers (also known as "people") typically organize products in their heads using simple descriptors or tags. Pre-Tesla, electric cars were not that well known. Among those who knew what an electric car was, the prevailing summary of them was that they were slow like golf carts, geeky, and only for a certain (weird) kind of person. Elon Musk and other early birds at Tesla blew those stereotypes out of the water


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

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

The European passenger plug-in vehicle market scored some 59,000 registrations in September (+76% year over year), with fully electric vehicles (BEVs) stepping up the pace and reaching a record score of 41,001 units, earning its first three-digit growth rate since July 2014 (+109%)


Tesla Model 3 & Model S Outpace Ferrari F12 On The Track (Video)

October 30th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Some of Tesla's fastest all-electric sedans recently faced down a powerful contender on an abandoned airport runway (turned into a drag strip). The contender? The feared Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Racers call it the F12B — a 730 hp beast fitted with a 6.3L V12 engine

October 28th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

How does a legendary supercar driver feel when he drives a Tesla Model 3 for the first time? Dario Benuzzi, the Ex-Chief Test Driver for Ferrari, tells us that he totally adores it. Design lab @Atellani had the chance talk to the living icon during his casual Model 3 drive and shared the outcome of the meeting


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

Tesla vs Porsche EV Rivalry Accelerates the Death of Fossil Vehicles

September 22nd, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Whilst seemingly irrelevant to everyday driving, the ongoing competition between Tesla and Porsche over EV performance supremacy is quickly demonstrating that fossil sports cars are becoming obsolete — an important symbolic milestone for the EV revolution which will have repercussions in higher volume segments. If Porsche wants its Taycan to keep pace with the Tesla Model S Plaid, Porsche will have to allow it to outperform the company's current flagship Panamera combustion sedan. And that will only highlight the inferiority of fossil vehicles

Prototype Tesla Model S “Plaid” (Available 2020) Breaks 4-Door Sedan Lap Record At Laguna Seca (Video)

September 12th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Proving the superior performance of electric vehicles, a prototype Tesla Model S with "Plaid powertrain and chassis" has broken the outright 4-door sedan lap record at the famous Laguna Seca Raceway, in a time of 1:36.555. Elon Musk has confirmed that this version of the Model S will go into series production around a year from now, and the same powertrain option will also be made available for the Tesla Model


Porsche Taycan Already Faster Than Panamera Sibling & Other Combustion Peers Around Twisty Race Tracks

September 1st, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Despite not surpassing some of its combustion peers over the full lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit, a recently released onboard lap video shows that the Porsche Taycan has effectively outperformed its Panamera sibling (and the BMW M5 and M5 Competition) over the twisty first half of the course. This indicates that on the vast majority of the world's race circuits, where mid-speed corners dominate over high speed straightaways, the Taycan will be able to lap faster than the Panamera and similar 4-door saloons, such as the BMW


Sorry, Porsche — Tesla Model 3 Already Has Repeatable Acceleration. Can We Troll Fossils Instead?

August 14th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Porsche's recent attempt to troll Tesla by emphasizing the Taycan's repeated acceleration ability ended up being quickly rebuffed. A Tesla Model 3 Performance owner demonstrated consistent acceleration launches 31 times back to back over a 28 minute period (albeit, within legal speed limits). Instead of EVs trolling other EVs, why don't we just highlight EV powertrains' advantages over fossils instead


Tesla Model 3 = 3% of US Car Sales in 1st Half of 2019

August 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In the comments of my article about the Tesla Model 3 accounting for 67% of US electric vehicle sales in the second quarter, someone asked about the electric vehicle share of the overall market. I didn't find second quarter (Q2) sales data anywhere, but I did quickly identify sales data for the first half of the year
