Check Out This Wicked Awesome Tesla Model 3 Inspired By Star Wars

August 11th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

There's no doubt that Peter Litherland is a serious Star Wars fan. Growing up in Vancouver, Peter dragged his Mom to the theater to see the original Star Wars film back in 1977. Nowadays, he dresses up as a Star Wars character every year for Halloween. So, when Peter decided to get a Tesla Model 3, he had an idea


Republican States Have The Loneliest (& Dirties) Commutes — Infographic

May 2nd, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

The emerging popularity of electric vehicles has helped to alleviate the burden of vehicular carbon dioxide emissions. Nevertheless, American states still have an outsized carbon footprint. With gas-powered vehicles responsible for troubling carbon dioxide emissions in the US, a small difference, such as driving with a coworker and/or driving electric, can help create change


Consumers Know Jack About Electric Cars (Video)

January 19th, 2019 | by Nexus Media

The telephone should have been an instant hit. It revolutionized human communication overnight, and yet it took decades to catch on. AT&T president Theodore Vail blamed meager sales on public ignorance. No one knew how to use the phone, he said


Exponential Growth Of Electric Cars Is Just Beginning

October 13th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Electric vehicle naysayers often seem to visualize technological change proceeding at a slow and stately pace, ignoring the accelerating trends that are driving EV adoption. But as any mathematician will tell you, exponential growth is a powerful thing, and there are several reasons to believe that electrification is nearing the upward curve in the proverbial hockey stick


Titillating Tesla Chat #3: Tesla Model 3 Sales, Model 3 Demand, & EV Revolution

August 31st, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

In this week's Titillating Tesla Chat episode, Tomek, Jacek, and I talked sales, sales, sales. As much as we report about it and as much as it has been long planned and projected, it is mind-blowing that Tesla has gone from essentially no sales a decade ago to production and sale of approximately 20,000 cars a month today


Bridges & Roadblocks To Electric Vehicle Adoption

August 3rd, 2018 | by Andy Miles

Apart from everybody giving up eating meat, everyone ditching their diesel and petrol cars to drive a shiny new electric vehicle is the best contribution we can make to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The ideal, therefore, is for it to be as easy as possible for everyone to get their hands on an electric vehicle, but what are the bridges and roadblocks on the road to making that a reality


Plug In America & Sierra Club Release The AchiEVe: Model State & Local Policies To Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption

July 2nd, 2018 | by Cynthia Shahan

I drive in one of the best cities in Florida for EV charging infrastructure. Still, there are gaps. Along with education to the public that demystifies electric cars and EV charging, we must dispel many misleading myths. As clean air advocates, we need to work for change in our local communities and states. Plug In America and the Sierra Club have made that a bit easier to actualize. They released the AchiEVe: Model State & Local Policies to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption toolkit. This policy guide details the most effective policies for growing the electric vehicle (EV) market at the state, city, and local levels


Busting Electric Car Myths In Costa Rica & Globally (CleanTechnica Video)

October 25th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

In Amsterdam earlier this year for EVBox's first annual rEVolution conference, one of the presenters was TED Talker, Latin American EV super advocate, and CleanTechnica reader Monica Araya. She gave a wonderful presentation on breaking down electric vehicle myths in Costa Rica, more broadly across Latin America, and even more broadly across the world. The presentation is definitely worth a watch, so have at it!


Winning People’s Hearts To EVs & Renewables

October 2nd, 2017 | by The Beam

When regular people know I am working in the plug-in car business, their first reaction is: “Oh yeah, that’s the future…” Some connect that with fighting climate change and give me the thumbs up. Others, possibly more tech-savvy, mention autonomous cars and Tesla, a brand that has a following even outside the electric vehicle bubble. I suspect a portion of Tesla owners buy them because they are sexy, fast and tech laden, with the autopilot being its most important feature, and the fact that they are electric is just an added bonus


EVs Are Getting More Popular As The Grid Gets Greener

May 28th, 2017 | by Guest Contributor

With the rising number of plug-in models available in the U.S., many at increasingly affordable prices, and with electricity getting greener, the climate benefits of electric cars are growing
