Chevrolet Bolt — The Right Electric Car On The Wrong Continent

October 21st, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

The Bolt EV was GM’s natural follow-up to the Volt's pioneering steps into electromobility. With the compact plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) market covered with the Volt, it was time for GM to go after the fully electric (BEV) subcompact segment, and for that, GM teamed up with Korea's LG. The result was a small yet space-efficient EV with a big, flat roller-skate battery between the wheels and a powerful motor. It was GM's first BEV-dedicated platform


BMW i3S — The BMW Version of the i3?

I has really happy to get the opportunity to try out the new i3S on my recent trip to the US (many thanks, BMW USA!), as it would give me an opportunity to compare it to the standard i3 I had last year. That was the most fun I ever had with an EV (until this year, that is)

Tesla Model 3 Owner Drives For Uber & Lyft In Kentucky — #CleanTechnica Interview

October 15th, 2018 | by Jake Richardson

Andy Slye is a videographer/filmmaker and Uber driver who lives in Louisville, Kentucky. He doesn't drive a Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, or Ford Escape, though — his vehicle is a fully electric Tesla Model 3.

Tesla Owners, Here’s How To Send A Photo To Space!

Tesla Model 3 Performance Is A Freakin’ Race Car — Unbeatable

September 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan
