January 23rd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I love looking at auto sales charts — and creating them — and we do so somewhat obsessively as it concerns electric vehicles and Tesla. From a static point of view today, looking at Tesla's global sales versus the global sales of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz (let alone Volkswagen Group or Toyota) and then looking at Tesla's [TSLA] market cap compared to those companies can leave you scratching your head


Tesla vs. BMW, Jaguar, Porsche — Worldwide Sales

January 23rd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Comparing Tesla vehicle sales to pickup truck and compact budget car sales is too much of an apples-to-oranges comparison. But comparing Tesla sales to the sales of the world's top luxury auto brands is getting interesting


Ralph Nader Jumps In On The Tesla FUD

January 23rd, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

You may remember Ralph Nader as the guy who was always running for president against both Democrats and Republicans. I remember seeing him on the ballot when I first started voting almost 20 years ago. I remember thinking that he is always running and never wins, but still, he's always running. I liked that about him -- he kept at it. What I don't like is how way off base he is when it comes to Tesla and EVs

Tesla Cybertruck replicas are everywhere. Tesla's Cybertruck isn't in production yet, but we are seeing it everywhere. Replicas, printouts, even photoshopped art. It seems the first Cybertruck replica was seen in Russia, which heralded the beginning of a trend. The Cybertruck replica was first seen in Khimki, which is just outside of Moscow

Waiting For Tesla Full Self Driving, These Are My Top Questions & Thoughts (As A User)

I'll admit it — I'm super eager for the first edition of Tesla "Full Self Driving" to roll out. Before critics start freaking out, I should make clear that I don't expect to nap, work, or watch movies while using initial iterations of Full Self Driving. I currently use Autopilot a ton, and I'm well aware that it is handling most of the driving just fine while I'm essentially a simple passenger, but I do keep my hands on the wheel and constantly scan the road like a pretend driver fully focused on acting out the role in search of an Oscar (or at least a Teen Choice Award)
