The Musks Embrace The Challenge Of Climate Change

October 14th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

This was a very detailed article by Wade Anderson who wanted to highlight how the Musks have embraced the challenge of climate change. With the help and support of his friend, Jim Lehrman, Wade breaks down the three deadly C's that contribute to climate change: Cars, cattle, and chainshows and explains how the Musks have taken on these challenges. Many people see the challenge of climate change as an obstacle that they can do nothing to stop or as something that isn't happening. The issue is real. The Musks and many others are doing something


Tesla Model Y Prototype Spotted On Road Near Tesla HQ (VIDEOS)

October 13th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Model Y, the affordable, all-electric crossover from Tesla’s stable, is not expected to hit the roads until late 2020. But Tesla is already laying the groundwork for the model that will forever alter Tesla’s position in the automotive world


Future Gas Stations Will Not Have Gas

October 12th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The year was 1908, the world's first mass-produced affordable automobile drove onto comically scarce streets. The transition from horse-driven carriages to gas-powered autos was officially beginning. After some back and forth, electric and steam-powered options didn't make it into the mainstream. In hindsight, gasoline probably wasn't the best option for the environment, but we're (finally) working on fixing that now


A Tesla Obsession That Sparked The Birth Of A Fascinating Newsletter

October 10th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

For quite a few people, their Tesla obsession starts way before purchasing a Tesla, or even without purchasing one. In my case, it started a month after we got our Model S. My family and I were in Spain for the holidays when I got a push notification about a new firmware update


Perplexing Accord & Camry Buyers … 7 Year Old Tesla Model S Battery Degradation … Old Nissan LEAF vs. New Tesla Model 3 — Top 20 CleanTechnica Stories in September

October 8th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica article of September did not have "Tesla" in the title, but if you read the piece, you can see the story is closely tied to the Tesla Model 3. The shock I just couldn't stop shaking was about how many people continue to buy new Toyota Camrys and Honda Accords. Compared to the Model 3, I get it — even if they have the same 5 year cost of ownership (possible), they have a lower upfront price. That said, if $100–200 a month is a dealbreaker for someone looking at these options, my opinion is that they definitely shouldn't be buying a new car at all. But hey, that's just my opinion


Tesla Reached 7,000 Cars Per Week In 3rd Quarter & Nobody Noticed

October 8th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

From the start of Tesla Model 3 production until about a year ago, the most important, nearly daily, Tesla news was about the weekly production numbers. We visited the Bloomberg tracker regularly to stay abreast of the news, and the FUD. And then Tesla started producing over 4,000 vehicles per week regularly and the interest disappeared. Tesla finished the marathon many doubted it could endure for more than a mile, two at the most. Those were fun times


Tesla Vehicle Efficiency Leads Industry Thanks To Tesla Vehicle Design Culture

October 5th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

More range! More range! That’s the mantra that has replaced the "More power!" of the internal combustion engine (ICE) era. How much range is enough? All we know at this point is that car buyers want more. Tesla, always attuned to consumer desires, upped the stakes once again in April, increasing the range of Model S to what Road & Track colorfully calls “a bladder-busting 370 miles.” The interesting thing is that the company achieved this 35-mile increase without increasing the size of the battery


I Invest In Tesla Because I Believe In Elon Musk

October 5th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

I invest in Tesla because I believe in Elon Musk, and what he and Tesla are doing for our world. There's more, though. I am writing this because I want to address something I've seen in my Twitter feed all too often


China Tesla Demand Is Spiking

October 3rd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla Model 3 and Model X demand are skyrocketing in China, especially since the Chinese government gave a 10% car purchase tax exemption to Tesla last month — a sign of aggressive electric vehicle policy implementation by China


Tesla Gigafactory China: Mud, “Basically An Open Field,” Not Gonna Happen — Skeptical Claims Revisited

October 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We reported yesterday that Tesla was ending Model 3 Standard Range shipments from the US to China because it was starting to produce the base Model 3 trim in its new (and still under construction) Shanghai gigafactory, "Gigafactory 3." It may surprise even Tesla optimists that the company was able to go from no construction at all to Model 3 production in such a rapid time, but it surely surprises Tesla skeptics the most


Gene Munster: “There’s a method to Musk’s goal-setting madness.”

September 29th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

To create breakthrough products, Steve Jobs created his own reality distortion field which helped Apple reach unattainable goals. Likewise, Elon Musk has an unorthodox method for setting Tesla's goals. Yes, there's a lot of bellyaching in the media over Musk's missed deadlines. But according to former Apple analyst Gene Munster (via Loup Ventures), "There's a method to Musk's goal-setting madness."


Tesla: Russia’s Top Propaganda Target

September 27th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

If you were to search for a typical article about Tesla in the media outlet RT (formerly called Russia Today, and Russia’s most prominent international information/propaganda outlet), it is likely that you would come away with the impression that Tesla is a company led by an incompetent CEO producing pathetic, highly dangerous, and unpopular cars


A Practical Reason Why Nürburgring Records Matter To Tesla

September 18th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

Until a couple weeks ago, my knowledge of the famous Nürburgring race track in Germany was basically limited to the strange Ring Racer roller coaster that was built in 2009 to be the fastest in the world, but ended up only operating four days in 2013 after they blew more than 12.3 million euros making it
