More Glimpses Of Tesla Model Y Near Tesla Fremont Factory

November 18th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

The Tesla Fremont factory is priming the nearby roads for another highly sought-after Tesla vehicle, the coming Model Y. Word is that the Tesla Fremont factory is busy putting together an assembly line for the Model Y. It has also been testing them on streets in the surrounding area — and sometimes further away


Is The Ford Mustang Mach-E A Tesla Killer? No, But …

November 16th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Now that the specs of the Mustang Mach E have been leaked (we got them as well but decided to follow the rules and not leak them), most articles are interested in how it compares to the Model Y. It's going to be other items that differentiate the two cars and determine which one people are more comfortable with and decide to buy. Instead of listing all the ways the cars are similar, I'm going to list the ways they are different


Tesla Model & Model 3 Visual Comparison … Tesla 1-Pedal Driving … Potential 10,000/Month EVs — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular stories of the past week on CleanTechnica were led by a visual comparison of the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y, followed by Paul Fosse's early review of one-pedal driving in a Tesla Model 3 (following a recent software update many of us still haven't gotten). My second piece on non-Tesla electric vehicle models that might one day reach 10,000 sales a month was in third, and an answer to the never-ending question of whether Teslas work in snow was right behind it.

Tesla Earnings Call: My (Overdue) Analysis

October 29th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

I published an article in my TSLA FUD series on October 23rd about what I was hoping to see from the Tesla 3rd quarter shareholder call. I stated before any earnings were released that I was far less concerned about the actual per-share earnings and much more interested in a set of bullet points regarding where Tesla was with various upcoming projects. Later that day, Tesla reported earnings and they were widely regarded as a home run by analysts


What Tesla’s Present Capital Expenses Tell Us About Future Depreciation

October 28th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Two of the big pieces of news on the Tesla 3rd quarter earnings announcement were that margins were up dramatically and the cost to build the new lines to manufacture the Model Y in Fremont is half the cost as the existing Model 3 lines, and that the cost to build the Model 3 line in China is 65% less than the same US Model 3 lines on a capacity basis. This means the cost for the Model Y line might cost half of what an existing Model 3 line costs, or it might mean that it costs the same amount of money but has twice the capacity — or some combination of the two


Tesla [TSLA] FUD: The Earnings Are Coming!

October 23rd, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

There are a slew of articles right now telling wildly different stories about what we should expect when Tesla reports its earnings on October 23rd after the bell. Articles have ranged from negative spin to positive spin. The negatives mostly seem centered around wondering if Tesla's revenues may have gone down as the product mix became more Model 3-centric, and the positives are about how many analysts have been revising their earnings expectation up lately


Tesla Model Y Production … Fusion Energy … Tesla Model 3 Range After 50,000 Miles — #CleanTechnica Top 20

October 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The top 20 CleanTechnica stories of the week were led by a Tesla Model Y production plan an insider leaked to us, which is both super exciting and something to be cautious about. The second most popular piece was a story about Tesla Model 3 range after 50,000 miles of driving. The black swan story of the week that climbed its way into the top 3 was on the topic of fusion energy. (Proceed with caution if you plan to read about that news item.) For the rest of the top 20, skim down below and click the ones that tickle your interest. 


Tesla Model Y: “Limited Production” ≠ Customer Deliveries

October 15th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We published an article earlier today about leaked info we received from a historically reliable source inside Tesla who indicated there's a target to start limited production of the Tesla Model Y in Tesla's Fremont factory sometime around Q1 2020. That said, "limited production" is not the same as customer deliveries, and we do not have new insight into the timeline for the latter


Nothing’s Static: Significant Cost Drops Brought Us Tesla Model 3 — What Will Continued Cost Drops Mean For Tesla?

October 15th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Humans are funny creatures. We think of our species as being extremely smart, but in actuality we are really quite bad at logical thinking. We even have inherent difficulty genuinely comprehending and acting on some well known facts of life. As an example of our limited comprehension skills, Elon Musk recently noted that we can't really see exponential growth in action


Breaking! Tesla Model Y Production To Start ~Q1 2020 (Unofficial Leak)

October 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This information is going to cause some controversy, because everything we knew, or thought we knew, about Tesla’s Model Y timeline is about to change. Originally, the Model Y was supposed to start shipping in "late 2020." Currently, Tesla's website says new orders will ship in Q1 2021. However, according to an anonymous source with a proven and reliable track record, Tesla is about to accelerate its plans and start production sometime around Q1 2020 at its Fremont factory. (We've also received the same information independently through a second-hand source.)
