How To Buy A Tesla

August 17th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The Tesla buying experience is unique compared to the typical car buying process offered by Big Auto. There’s no sitting down, negotiating, and sometimes not even a test drive. More on that in a minute. First, there are a few things you should know before walking into a Tesla store. For starters, it is not a dealership


Volkswagen e-Golf = #1 EV in Germany in July

August 15th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The German plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market continues on the right track in July, with 9,233 registrations. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up 136% year over year (YoY), while plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs) keep stuttering (+6% in July, bringing year-to-date numbers out of the red)


Tesla Model 3 = 4th Best Selling Vehicle in Switzerland in 1st Half of 2019

August 13th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I reported the other day that the Model 3 was the 10th best selling vehicle in Sweden in July. I also reported that the Model 3 was the 9th best selling car in the United States in the second quarter of 2019. Switzerland and Liechtenstein (which report sales together) top them both. The Tesla Model 3 was the 4th best selling vehicle in Switzerland and Liechtenstein in the first half of the year


Tesla Model 3 = 3% of US Car Sales in 1st Half of 2019

August 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In the comments of my article about the Tesla Model 3 accounting for 67% of US electric vehicle sales in the second quarter, someone asked about the electric vehicle share of the overall market. I didn't find second quarter (Q2) sales data anywhere, but I did quickly identify sales data for the first half of the year


Tesla Model 3 = 67% of US Electric Vehicle Sales in 2nd Quarter

August 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I prefer comparing the Tesla Model 3 to its gasoline competitors, but it's also logical to compare the Model 3 to other electric vehicles. In the old days, these were simply called EV sales reports, but the US electric vehicle market is so unbalanced at the moment that it's hard to ignore the elephant in the room — there's the Model 3, and there's everything else


Tesla Cars = #1 In US Luxury Car Sales In 2nd Quarter Of 2019

August 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Model 3 absolutely embarrassed the luxury car competition in the United States in the second quarter, as explained and visualized in a CleanTechnica report last night. More broadly, this report looks at overall luxury car sales and overall luxury auto sales in the US last quarter


Tesla Model 3 = 9th Best Selling Car In USA In 2nd Quarter

August 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In terms of unit sales, the Tesla Model 3 was again the only premium-class car in the US top 10 in the second quarter of 2019. According to official figures from automakers and CleanTechnica's estimate for Tesla's US sales, the Model 3 was the 9th best selling car in the country in the quarter


Elon Musk, The Elder Statesman Of The Auto Industry?

August 5th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Ah, the callow and cocksure Elon Musk, the bad boy gamer from Silicon Valley, the brash, iconoclastic upstart who dares to challenge the time-tested titans of transportation! Would that be the same Elon Musk who recently became the longest-serving CEO in the global auto industry


Huge Tesla High Tide In Europe — June EV Sales Report

July 29th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The European passenger plug-in vehicle (PEV) market logged some 47,000 registrations in June (+24% year over year), with the PEV market growing 34% in 2019 so far. That's a great performance considering the stagnating performance (-3%) of the overall auto market


Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Solar Roof … Tesla Model 3 = Breakthrough … EV Transmissions — #CleanTechnica Top 20

July 28th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular articles on CleanTechnica last week were, surprisingly, not topped by a Tesla story. I don't remember the last time that was the case! In fact, the thrid most popular story also wasn't primarily about Tesla. Apparently, readers were especially pulled into reading a story about the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid's solar roof, another mainstream media review of the Tesla Model 3, and why EV transmissions are a thing and will likely become a bigger thing


Auto Experts: Tesla Has 7-Year Head Start Over Legacy Automakers

July 27th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The automotive and oil industries dominate the global economy, and both are on the cusp of revolutionary change. The ramifications of this are endless, and when auto industry experts start discussing the current state of affairs with an open mind, the conversation can take some very interesting turns


3 Nuggets About Tesla Customer Demand From 2nd Quarter Conference Call

July 26th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a lot of things that slip into the "Tesla narrative" and common Tesla discussions. Some of those things make sense. Some don't. Some provide insight into the future. Some don't. Two days ago, just before the second quarter Tesla conference call, I wrote a long and rambling piece about Tesla demand, essentially writing that no one knows what Tesla demand is or will be
