EV-Resource.com: A Great Site For EV Noobs

Published on December 8th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

One of the hardest things about getting more people to adopt electric vehicles is the learning curve. For those of us who own EVs and have for a while, it's easy to take for granted what it takes to operate one. You have to know how to charge, where to charge, and you have to know that charging at home is even possible... Read More

Bank of America Merrill Lynch: UK Tesla Model 3 & Other EV 3-Year Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Shows EVs Much Cheaper than Fossil Competitors

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We've published numerous analyses of our own on the total cost of ownership of the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen ID.3 compared to top gasoline competitors. However, if you don't trust research from CleanTechnica, perhaps you'll find the work of a major international financial firm more palatable. A recently published report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) that was passed along to CleanTechnica dove into this topic for the ... Read More

Tesla Revenue Growing Rapidly, But Critics Can’t Move On

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Several months ago, Hamid Shojaee tweeted out a superb chart highlighting both Tesla's annual revenue growth and summaries of the consistently wrong claims of Tesla critics and skeptics. It was so brilliant that I wanted to write an article about it, but I never got to that. As it turns out, though, the chart is still relevant today... Read More

US Gas Vehicle Sales Up Big In November, Still Down In 2019

Published on December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales by company or brand is one of the oddest-feeling things I've done in my decade or so covering cleantech. Perhaps that's because the focus is on tracking non-clean tech. The fact is, though, it shocks me every month to see how many people still buy gasoline cars. Gasoline cars are far worse than electric cars currently on the market for the same cost (or even less). Nonetheless, there are so many people buying clunky, noisy, slow, high-maintenance, low-tech, high-depreciation gasoline vehicles every single day. Objectively, it doesn't make sense... Read More

Published on December 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

When you think of countries leading the way in terms of electric vehicle adoption, Norway certainly comes to mind, and probably also Sweden, the Netherlands, and Iceland. But Finland? No, Finland hasn't historically had great EV adoption, but it is having a strong year, and last month showed a big boom in EV sales growth... Read More

Published on 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... Read More

BMW Group Joins “Getting to Zero Coalition” — 1st Carmaker To Do So

Published on December 6th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Being superbly happy with the performance, and yes, the style of the BMW i3 that I drive, it's nice to hear BMW is continuing to focus on manufacturing electric cars in a green way. The company actually operates a sustainability strategy that exists along the entire value chain, supporting sustainability more deeply than in the cars or car factories themselves... Read More
