Tesla Inside Out — Tesla History From 7-Year Insider

November 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently met a gentleman named David Havasi while charging our Tesla Model 3 at a ChargePoint station at a Whole Foods I frequently visit. He recognized me from CleanTechnica and I quickly learned he worked at Tesla for 7 years, until just recently. We got talking, talking, talking, and talking. I wasn't sure if he'd be camera shy to repeat some of what he told me (or more) on camera, but it turned out he very much wasn't shy — he had actually worked on Broadway before working at Tesla!

June 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular CleanTechnica articles of May are in a list below. First, though, I'll highlight some of my favorites. Well, the #1 story on the top 20 is also perhaps my favorite, but I wrote it, so I'm biased. It is a cost comparison between the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus and several Honda Accord trims. Guess who wins


Jerome — The Man, The Myth, The Tesla Super-Engineer — #CleanTechnica Interview

May 18th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

If you were following Tesla in the early days of the Model S, and more so if you were an early Model S owner, you probably know or know of Jerome Guillen. He led development of the Tesla Model S (program director) and was also VP of Worldwide Sales and Service for 2½ years. He was absolutely loved by owners. If you frequented Tesla forums in the pre–Model X days, you might have even seen more love for Jerome than for Elon (Musk). People loved him

“The Fixer” — Tesla’s New President

September 22nd, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Both Tesla fanboys and TSLA shorts seem to agree on one thing — Elon Musk could use some rest. He, however, disagrees. Nevertheless, many were relieved when Musk recently announced that "Jerome Guillen has been promoted to President, Automotive ... [in order to] oversee all automotive operations and program management, as well as coordinate our extensive automotive supply chain."
