The new MINI SE electric car is a blast to drive and the perfect urban mobility device. Now if only MINI could do something about all that traffic!

We've had our Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus for about 5 months now. The car is a wonderful vehicle and I wouldn't trade it for anything else. (Though, I frequently debate with myself if I'd prefer the Model 3 or the Model Y.)

Most Tesla owners have a home charger (or NEMA 14-50 outlet) installed in their garage before taking delivery of their Model S, 3, or X. But not everyone lives in a house with a garage. Some new Tesla owners live in an apartment building or condo that might not (yet) have any EV charging. Should this prevent you from buying a Tesla

The Model X is a great vehicle. When we think of SUVs, we tend to think of piling the kids in the backseat, loading our groceries, trips to the mall, etc. But my experience this week was an eye opener

I recently had an opportunity to get my hands on a 2019 RadRover, by Rad Power Bikes. While I did get this bike as part of a collaboration with a third party, I'm glad to have the opportunity to give our readers an independent review of the bike. So far, it's been a great ride!

Last week, Arthur Driessen -- the intrepid Tesla Model 3 explorer crisscrossing the United States in his Tesla Model 3 -- brought his 2018 Model 3 LR to CleanTechnica's sumptuous New England regional offices, otherwise known as Blueberry Pointe, my home in Rhode Island. Since picking up up his car in April, 2018, Arthur has put almost 90,000 miles on the car in his quest to visit every Supercharger location in the

"It's the little things."
"Stop to smell the roses."
"Don't forget to enjoy life."
There are various phrases that try to remind us that big-picture topics don't always dominate our lives. In fact, little things of daily life can influence us on a grand scale. With many little things, it wouldn't hurt us to pause and appreciate them a little more

Last June, when my family and I moved to Florida from Poland, we couldn't afford the Tesla Model 3. Well, I could afford it as far as my calculations went, and it seemed to me that it made the most financial sense, especially with the $7500 tax credit still available, but I couldn't get a loan for the amount needed for some reason. I've long loved the BMW i3 (I think it was the first electric car I drove, which made it extra special), and you could find wicked deals on used i3s because they had depreciated so much. So, I got one of my dream cars

Yesterday, I wrote about the 4 top reasons we just bought a Tesla Model 3 and decided to say goodbye to a 2015 BMW i3 REx we loved. Below are 3 more reasons — not as big as the core 4 but notable nonetheless. Were any of these critical in deciding to bring home a Model 3? No, but they were big improvements over the i3 that continually came to mind and helped build the case for the switch. In our first day with the car, each of them was already noticed and appreciated

It's not only about the economics, specs, and handling. Something unexpected sneaks up on you on those long drives in the Tesla Model

When you see a video about an electric vehicle -- in this case a Tesla Model S -- that has been driven well over 200,000 miles and could go another 200,000 or farther, it helps to refute anti-EV misinformation. It also points to a future where EV owners can potentially drive their vehicles farther and with lower ownership costs than if they had a gas-powered car or truck

Tesla has long been criticized for service that lags behind the company's exponential growth in sales, but the reality of the situation is significantly more optimistic. In reality, Tesla continues to innovate, even in a challenging area like service, delivering an experience that bests the competition

We recently returned to Florida after 4½ months in Poland. I was planning to write an article about our insanely low fuel costs driving an electric car before we left Florida in mid-March. That didn't happen. I then decided to at least write the article before returning to Florida. That didn't happen. Long story short: below is finally the article I was planning to write about our fuel costs after ~9 months driving an electric car in Southwest Florida

Last year, Luxembourg-based Bianca Hurduc decided to start a car blog, Arctic Swan, to provide auto news and reviews. But the site needed a twist. She wanted to feature "inspiring lady drivers with wanderlust ... written by a woman for women."

After so many adventures and kilometers (see parts one, two, and three), we were down south in Sicily for this portion of our trip. On the 7th day in the morning, with 3,300 km on the meter, we decided to give up on the southwest part of Sicily, where fast chargers were quite scarce, and we drove through the mountainous heart of the island

As Model 3 begins to appear on the UK's streets, local automotive news outlets are publishing their reviews of Tesla's highly-anticipated electric vehicle. One such publication, CAR Magazine, just released a written review and provocative video about Tesla's lower-priced, smaller sedan
