As far as I have seen, no one yet has a clear handle on some of these key factors, so keep that in mind as you read on (and share data in the comments if you think you have answers)

The country, which has followed similar social distancing strategies as other European nations, has been conducting a random sample (i.e., scientifically useful) test of its population — with results from 1.5% of its population so far. This means it is testing a true representative portion of its population

March 11th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla has had a lot of success in China with its EVs and its new factory. However, Tesla Model 3 vehicles that are made in China as well as Model S and X vehicles made in the US aren't the only thing Tesla is selling there. These Tesla beverages in China look refreshing and delightful


Where Would The EV Market Be Today If Tesla Didn’t Exist? 

March 8th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Where would the EV market be today if Tesla didn't exist? This sounds like a silly question since many fans would say, "Duh, there wouldn't be one." Even as the market expands and new models arrive, I think that critics also know this
