Opel Ampera-e (Opel Who?!?) Wins January In The Netherlands — EV Sales Report

February 13th, 2020 | by Jose Pontes

Yes, the Dutch plug-in market was down 2% year over year (YoY), to 3,184 registrations, but because the overall market fell even more (-6% YoY), the plug-in vehicle (PEV) share (7.2%, 4.3% for fully electric vehicles alone) actually grew compared to 12 months ago (6.9% in January 2019). So ... why is this happening

January 11th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

For several years, we've considered BMW to be most at risk from Tesla's rise. The BMW brand's trademark "the ultimate driving machine" tagline got stolen away from the German automaker.

We start this month's EV sales reports in the Netherlands. (Well, we already started there with another article, but here's a second.) The Dutch plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market grew a whopping 281% in September compared to the same month in 2018 (year over year, or YoY).

So, all points to a record performance this coming December. How much, would you say? 16,000? 20,000? More

Tesla Flashbacks, Take 5

January 20th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently had some fun digging up old Tesla news, putting it in the context of the company up to today can make it fascinating. I've also elaborated on 11 years of hyped up FUD about Tesla and claims of its eminent demise for the past decade, as well as 8 "impossible" goals the company has achieved. I forgot, though, that a reader sent along a list of his own back in October. It's a great list as well, so I'm writing about it here for another round of "Tesla Flashbacks."
