Tesla Road Trip Tips & Tricks

April 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

We do love Tesla Electric Road Trip stories, especially when they’re spiced with practical charging tips. A recent addition to the genre, from Brad Templeton, posted on Forbes goes beyond the usual travel log of sights seen and charging difficulties overcome. Templeton’s account of a weeklong trip from San Francisco to the southern California desert to enjoy the spectacular springtime poppy bloom includes some interesting insights about how driving electric changes the overall traveling experience


Tesla Model 3 Tsunami (Swiss Edition)

April 16th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The Swiss plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market smashed its previous sales record (1,341 registrations) last month by registering 2,162 vehicles. That meant that the PEV share jumped to 7.5% (6.4% from fully electric vehicles and 1.1% from plug-in hybrids), pulling the 2019 PEV share to 5.3% and thus almost doubling last year's result


The Mystery Of Tesla Model 3 Demand

April 14th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

Demand is a mystery that can only be measured once supply is provided, and at that point, it's not demand anymore. You only know what demand you really had after its gone. Supply is a fact you can easily measure, while demand is never really known or completely understood. Even worse, the supply you measure is usually only a part of the demand you once had, and the closer you get to the moment of supply, the more you know how real the demand is


Tesla Model 3 Leads The Electric Army In Historic Month — Norway EV Sales Report

April 13th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Last month, fully electric vehicles saw their registrations double year over year (YoY), pushing the overall market up +28% despite sales of every other powertrain type dropping at least 20%, which led to record fully electric vehicle (58%) and overall plug-in vehicle (69%) shares. As you already know, Tesla Model 3 deliveries went through the roof in March, with the model achieving 5,315 registrations, a new all-time record for any nameplate in Norway, whatever the fuel source

April 11th, 2019 | by The Beam

On the bright side, the European food system provides 4.2 million jobs in Europe, feeds more than 500 million Europeans, and its greenhouse gases emissions have decreased 20% since 1990. But the social and environmental impacts of the European food system is alarming. Diet-related diseases such as diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease are growing at an alarming rate


Tesla & Fiat Dance An Interesting Tango

April 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We occasionally joke about people who have claimed for the past 11 years that Tesla will die any day. The truth is, though, it's nearly unbelievable that Tesla has indeed survived, and how quickly it has grown to become so big and influential.Fiat has been on the flip side of the electrification story, generally eager to avoid it, deny it, defer it, and complain about it


Neuralink April 1st Story … Tesla Model 3 #1 In Europe … Tesla Model 3 Delivery Rush In China — #CleanTechnica Top 20

April 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of the past week were led by ... an April 1 joke. (It's not the first time. And it was a great article.) Other than the Neuralink joke, Tesla sales in Europe, Tesla sales in China, a solar module efficiency chart, and a global Tesla 11 Year Death Anniversary event I dreamt up attracted the most reader eyeballs

The Tesla Model 3’s Norway Invasion — Model 3 Outsold ALL Pure-Fossil Cars In March

April 3rd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Editor's note: Maximilian Holland already published a superb accounting of Tesla, especially Tesla Model 3, sales in Norway in March. Key highlights were: 31% of new car deliveries were Teslas. That's more than the 23% of deliveries that were pure-fossil vehicle sales (all models combined). 58% of deliveries were fully electric vehicle deliveries


Tesla Model 3 Starting To Reach Eastern Europe

March 31st, 2019 | by Tomek Gać

As of today, in EV Kingdom Norway, Tesla has delivered 6,116 Model 3's, which is best result for any EV model in history. Central Europe and Eastern Europe are not such a paradise for EVs


Tesla Model 3 = #1 Electric Car In Europe — #CleanTechnica Electric Car Sales Report

March 31st, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The big news in February’s top positions was of course the Tesla Model 3 landing with a bang, and jumping right up to the leadership position, but unlike what has happened (and is happening) in the USA, the blackhole effect of the Tesla Model 3 is not absorbing sales from other BEVs (well, maybe the Model S is the exception). Instead, it appears the Model 3 is pulling customers directly from competing PHEVs and gas/diesel models


Many In Germany Still In A Diesel-Fueled Daze, In Denial About EV Transition

March 16th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

The German auto industry has been through quite a scandal surrounding dieselgate. But that's not stopping some from clinging to diesel. The Verge reports, "Germany is divided about the future of its most important industry: while some automakers pursue electric vehicles, a noisy group of diesel-energy enthusiasts are expressing their frustration through protests. These have gone on every weekend so far this year."


Tesla’s European Sales Problem — Shops Or No Shops

March 10th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Just two weeks after I wrote that Tesla needed to open a lot of shops in Europe, Tesla announced that it was closing many of its shops. How could I be so wrong? What did I miss? While torturing my feet on the floor of the Geneva Motor Show, I thought more about this problem


Tesla Model 3 = Best Selling Electric Car In Germany — CleanTechnica EV Sales Report

March 9th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

Many have predicted that the growth of Tesla in Germany will be limited by different factors that are unique to the market and differentiate it from markets like the US, Norway, and the Netherlands. The first of those factors is the German auto industry, which is without any doubt the dominant industry (including suppliers and suppliers of suppliers and suppliers of suppliers of suppliers) in the largest economy in Europe. As such an influential industry, it has a large influence on politics, laws, and regulations

Global solar installations increased by around 5% in 2018 and reached 104.1 gigawatts (GW) according to new figures released by SolarPower Europe released at the SolarPower Summit in Brussels on Wednesday, further putting the lie to previous estimates that 2018 solar installations had failed to reach the same level as last year.
