Open The Plug-In Hybrid Floodgates! Germany EV Sales Report

November 17th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Something clicked in the German plug-in vehicle market after the summer holidays. The market had a record month (9,452 registrations) in September, and then October came and set a new record, this time 26% above the previous one! 11,926 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) were registered, more than doubling last year's result. With China's PEV market in post-subsidy blues, this is a welcome boost to global sales. Now if only the US market helped to carry the burden


7 More Electric Vehicles That Could Hit 10,000 Sales A Month (Perhaps)

November 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In response to a recent article of mine about electric vehicle models that could potentially hit 10,000+ sales a month, several readers suggested other models that I neglected (or simply didn't have much faith in). I thought these suggestions warranted a followup article


Chevy Bolt & Hyundai Kona EV Crushing Tesla Model 3 In US Sales — Or Not

October 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a handful of hilarious and informative pro-Tesla Twitter accounts. Elon Musk's may be the most famous (either his or Earl's), and he's got a pretty good handle on humor (dad humor), but another tweeter who makes me laugh on a routine basis and who I think more people should follow is The Short Shorts Historian (@TeslaHistorian). This history professor is quite adept at picking LOL-funny tweets from yesteryear and bringing them to the harsh neon lights of modern-day Twitter

Volkswagen ID.3 vs. Nissan LEAF & Hyundai Kona EV — Range & Price Comparisons

September 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We still don't have much info on the Volkswagen ID.3, but we have a little bit to go on regarding price and range. The base version of the ID.3 is supposed to be under €30,000. I'm assuming that means just under, so will round up to €30,000. The "up to" (idealistic) WLTP range on that trim is 330 km (205 miles). How do these figures compare to the Nissan LEAF and Hyundai Kona


Top Reasons To Buy These 13 Electric Vehicles

September 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Some people like to say that we here at CleanTechnica only write about Tesla, only care about Tesla, only want to hug Tesla, and only promote Tesla's vehicles. That's not true. We've actually published more than 1,000 articles regarding the Nissan LEAF, hundreds regarding the Chevy Bolt, hundreds regarding the Renault Zoe, hundreds regarding the BMW i3, and many more. Yes, nowadays, the Tesla Model 3 — as the first truly mass market electric car — dominates our EV coverage, just as it dominates EV sales in the markets where most of our readers reside. But we actually love and obsessively cover numerous EVs

Tesla & EV Life In Wroclaw, Poland — What’s New?

July 27th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently had our Polish Tesla Shuttle Model S for a few days (it normally lives in Cracow). I didn't expect I'd experience many new things in the car and thought I wouldn't have anything to write about, but I was wrong
