June 11th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Tesla just completed its annual shareholder meeting. Like in meetings past, it was fairly long and covered almost every Tesla topic under the sun. To make it easier for people who couldn't watch, wouldn't watch, or simply want to go back to some of the topics in the meeting, below is a timestamped summary from Paul, who kindly stayed up late in Florida (just not as late as me here in Poland) to put this together for the world

The French plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market had 4,542 registrations in April, up 43% YoY, with a big portion of this growth coming from pure electric vehicles (BEVs).

This growth is even more significant when we realize that the overall vehicle market remained stagnant (+0.4%)

Tesla Model 3 = #1 Electric Car In Europe — #CleanTechnica Electric Car Sales Report

March 31st, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The big news in February’s top positions was of course the Tesla Model 3 landing with a bang, and jumping right up to the leadership position, but unlike what has happened (and is happening) in the USA, the blackhole effect of the Tesla Model 3 is not absorbing sales from other BEVs (well, maybe the Model S is the exception). Instead, it appears the Model 3 is pulling customers directly from competing PHEVs and gas/diesel models


BYD’s Yuan & Tang Shine In February In China — #CleanTechnica Electric Car Sales Report

March 31st, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Traditionally, February, along with January, are the two slowest months in the Chinese plug-in vehicle market, but with sales growing 58% year over year (YoY) last month, to some 53,000 units, especially in the context of a falling market (the mainstream market was down 17% last month), one can’t really complain about this market, despite the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market share dropping slightly to 4.7% (4.3% in February). However, the 2019 result is already above the 2018 result (4.2%)

February 24th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Traditionally, January, along with February, are the two slowest months in the Chinese plug-in vehicle market, but tradition is not what it used to be.

What’s BMW’s Next Real Move?

February 13th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

People like to bash the BMW i3 for its somewhat quirky looks, or for its less than "ultimate" specs. Others love it. I love it, and I actually drive one. Whether you are an i3 critic or an i3 fan, though, we're definitely at a "Munich, we have a problem" moment

China registered over 180,000 PEVs in December, making it the 4th record month in a row and achieving 70% year-over-year (YoY) growth. That meant that 2018 sales ended north of the 1 million units mark. Yes, over 1 million PEVs in one year. And to think that 2017 was the first year that plug-ins reached 1 million sales globally. Whoa

December 21st, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

After a positive October, the German plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market slipped again in November, down 2% to 6,266 registrations.
