Arizona Chauffeuring In A Tesla — “Chauffeur’s Dream”

August 30th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

It’s 11:30 on a Thursday morning, and David Lucht is recharging – both himself, with a cold brew at Press Coffee Roasters, and his 2014 Tesla Model S, which is currently hooked up to one of the 16 charging stations in the parking lot at Scottsdale Quarter. “They’ve got the Superchargers here,” Lucht says, excitedly


2018 Nissan LEAF vs. Tesla Model 3 vs. Chevy Bolt

August 18th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

I drove a 2018 Nissan LEAF a few days ago, a few weeks after driving a Chevy Bolt and a Tesla Model 3. Today, I again drove a Tesla Model 3, this time an all-wheel drive version of the car. Aside from the significantly larger and more expensive Tesla Model S and Model X, the Model 3, LEAF, and Bolt are the three highest selling fully electric cars in the United States, so I figured it would be most useful and interesting to compare the three of them when writing up my 2018 LEAF review


Life With Electric Vehicles — New Nissan LEAF, Renault Zoe, Tesla Model S, BMW i3, Jaguar I-PACE, Tesla Model X

August 5th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Our local Tesla Shuttle arm in Poland has been operating for over a year. One of our co-founders, Tomek Gać, has also had a Nissan LEAF for years and he recently test drove the new Nissan LEAF and the Jaguar I-PACE. We decided to have a long chat about our experiences with the Tesla Model S, some of our experiences with Tesla Shuttle (which is now in operation in Europe and the USA), how the new Nissan LEAF & Jaguar I-PACE compare to Tesla vehicles, and how adequate they may be for "average people" — not just EV fanatics


Tesla Model 3 vs. CPO Tesla Model S — Owner Perspective

August 5th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

I've been driving a Tesla Model S for about 4.5 years now, and have driven about 90,000 electric miles. I absolutely love my 2012 P85, and will never to go back to an internal combustion engine car again. In fact, we just purchased my wife's new 2018 Long Range rear-wheel drive Model 3 and our household now has 100% electric transport

August 4th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

With Tesla Model 3 sales surging, reviews rolling off the line faster than any EV in history, and a Tesla shareholder meeting with tons of goodies (including me getting on the call and asking Elon Musk some questions!), this week's list of the top 20 articles on CleanTechnica is dominated by Tesla even more than usual. Scroll down, have a gander, and click through to all of them. Hey, aside from clicking through, also share all of them. Mmkay, thanks, buh-bye


Tesla Model 3 Highlights From 3 Owners & Me (Videos)

July 31st, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Electric vehicle activist, early adopter, and now Model 3 owner Paul Fosse was kind enough to take his fresh Tesla Model 3 an hour or so south to let me drive it. He also brought along some friends and their Model 3 for double the chocolate, double the fun. (Actually, I think no chocolate was involved — whoops.)


Tesla Model 3 Review — The Things You Haven’t Read — #CleanTechnica Review

July 28th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

I’ll start out with the fact that Tesla cheats. In fact, so do all fully electric vehicles to some extent. Build an EV and put the battery pack on the floor — instant superior handling is obtained by simple physics. Then, add a silent, dutifully designed and powerful electric motor, and gas cars don’t have a chance. We all have heard about EVs’ low maintenance and instant torque. Put all of this into a low-cost, attractive package and the modern electric vehicle should sell itself. And indeed, this is the tale of Tesla’s success with the Model


Tesla Model 3 Performance vs. Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive (#CleanTechnica Review)

July 24th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

The Tesla Model 3 has been shipping for just over a year now in a single powertrain configuration — the Long Range version with the Performance Upgrade Package. Tesla shared that the focus on versions of the car with higher profit margins was key to ramping up production in a financially wise way — leading to what it hopes to be the start of sustainable profitability in Q3 of this year


Give Me Fob Or Give Me Death! The Saga Of The Tesla Model 3 Phone Key

July 24th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

As a new Tesla Model 3 owner, I have struggled with the bluetooth phone connection that is supposed to serve as the primary key for the car. I shared about this in a post detailing some of my learnings from the first 24 hours with the car and was met with a flurry of comments about the phone key. This article will dive deeper into my phone key situation and add further context from around the interwebs from other Tesla Model 3 owners


2018 Chevy Bolt Seems A Fine Fit For Mountain Exploring & Other Edge Cases

July 14th, 2018 | by Cynthia Shahan

I finally got a call to come and test drive the 2018 Chevy Bolt. It was worth the wait. I enjoyed the dynamic little EV. I prefer small cars in general — something to take you where you need to go without a lot of space grabbing. The Bolt fit the bill and at the same time seemed to offer enough all-electric car advantages to genuinely consider it


BMW i3 vs Chevy Bolt vs Nissan LEAF (Comparison Review)

July 14th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently test drove the Chevy Bolt (at last!) and also spent some time driving a 2015 Nissan LEAF again (due to our i3 being in service). The differences were striking, and I have to say that the Bolt was a letdown — compared to the electric cars I'm used to


Review Of The Tesla Model 3 From “Driving,” Canadian Auto Magazine

July 9th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

One of Canada's top automotive sites, Driving, recently reviewed Tesla's Model 3. Driving's Peter Bleakney writes, "The most hyped car of this century actually delivers." Bleakney acknowledges that there's a bit of a "circus" surrounding Tesla. Yet after experiencing the Model 3, he admits, "it sure feels like the future in here."


Family Life With A Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, & A Little Bit Of Chevy Bolt Mixed In

July 8th, 2018 | by Jessica Feinleib

Chrysler is trying to keep it a secret, but the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is really a great plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Their motives for this move are confusing, as they have done a fantastic job and should be very proud of the plug-in vehicle they created. We have had ours since the middle of December 2018, and this review is based on our real-world experiences
