EV Tipping Point in Norway

August 18th, 2019 | by Roy L Hales

August 15th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

We have the Tesla registration numbers for the first month of Q3, and again the rumor mill that Tesla sales tanked in Europe is in full gear. The narrative is that the delivery numbers (wrongly called sales) in July are just a fraction of the numbers in June

July 28th, 2019 | by Anand Upadhyay

Interest in electric vehicles (EVs) is getting super hot in India. Having missed out on building its own manufacturing base for solar PV, India seems conscious about not missing the EV opportunity, especially for lithium-ion battery manufacturing (LIB)

Other Nations Support Electric Cars. In The US, They’re Supposedly A Threat To Gas Tax Revenue.

May 24th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Governments in Europe and China are trying to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles by offering subsidies and incentives, and it’s working. In Norway, EVs are exempt from taxes, and drivers receive perks such as free parking and reduced tolls. Almost 60 percent of new cars sold in the country in March were fully electric. China’s combination of incentives and mandates is acting as a magnetic force, sucking the global EV industry out of America and Europe and into China, where over a million electric cars were sold in

Tesla Model 3 Lease vs. Loan In UK, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, & China

May 5th, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

For this piece, I will use the information on Tesla’s website to determine if paying cash, taking a loan, or leasing is the best option if you want a Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+). The twist here is I did these calculations for Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, China, and the UK. These were some of the most popular markets for Tesla in Q1 2019.
