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. As far as he knows, his Tesla is the only one of its kind being used as an Uber vehicle in his area. You can see how some of his passengers react to riding in it in a video he made, a video that actually got retweeted by Tesla and Elon Musk last week (after we interviewed Andy). Below are Andy's answers to questions we asked about the Model 3 and his experience with it in Kentucky

October 15th, 2018 | by Jake Richardson

Stephen Puryear and his wife recently purchased a 2018 Nissan Leaf. They live in the Bay Area and owned an older Leaf prior to getting the new one. (They also have a Toyota Prius.) Mr. Puryear generously agreed to answer some questions for CleanTechnica about his new Leaf experiences so far


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

October 7th, 2018 | by Paul Fosse

Like many of you, I reserved my Tesla Model 3 on March 31st, 2016 (online, as I wasn’t into Tesla enough to take off work to drive to the dealer). I received my Model 3 about 3 months ago and since then I’ve given about 50 test rides


Tesla Model 3 — Two Cars For The Price Of One

October 6th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

This is part two of a two-part review of the Tesla Model 3. I am a Portuguese man living in Portugal and recently visited the United States and Canada for a couple of weeks. On the trip, I spent a week with the Model 3 and am offering my honest opinions on the car in this day-by-day narrative


New I-PACE Is Fast & Fun, But Jaguar Should Strengthen Its Roar

October 5th, 2018 | by Robyn Purchia

"This was a learning process for us," Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart, Technical Design Director, Jaguar Land Rover, told CleanTechnica. "The initial idea was these cars are mainly sold to people withe a green background, but then we saw that the majority of customers were different."


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

September 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

The top-of-the-line Tesla Model S is quicker than the top-of-the-line Tesla Model 3, zipping from 0–60 mph in a cool & easy 2.5 seconds rather than the Model 3 Performance's 3.5 seconds. However, as I've emphasized many times when comparing various cars, numbers on a screen only tell you so much


Top Gear: Tesla Model 3 Performance “A Satisfying Way To Get Around”

September 22nd, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla’s vehicles have earned rave reviews from just about every major automotive authority. However, there are plenty of car guys (and, presumably, gals) out there who still haven’t warmed up to a Tesla, or any electric vehicle. Some petrol-heads of this persuasion are to be found at Top Gear, the UK car guys that famously fought it out in the courtroom with Tesla back in 2008 (as told in a certain book). “As much as we admire BEVs, not one has yet landed that genuinely stirs the emotions like our old friend internal combustion,” writes Top Gear’s Jason Barlow in a recent article


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

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.)
