Dear Elon, I Have An Idea For Autopilot

April 21st, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

What follows is a letter about an idea I’ve been thinking about for a couple of years that could both reduce the impact of electric vehicles and make them go longer (both in terms of range and longevity)


Waiting For The Model Y Or Another Future EV? There Are Things You Can Do Now To Reduce Driving Impacts & Costs

March 12th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

With the upcoming announcement of the Tesla Model Y, and with better and better electric vehicles (EVs) coming out every year, many of our readers might be waiting to switch to an electric ride. Many are waiting for lower prices, more charging stations, more range, or simply want a form factor that isn’t yet available, like a pickup truck or off-road


Tesla Model 3 Standard Range vs. Best of the Rest – Which Affordable EV to Choose?

September 16th, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

In the coming months, with some timing and volume variations by region, you will be able to choose from many affordable, generous range, compelling, and all-around-capable EVs that are coming on to the market. Whilst the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range is arguably the most keenly anticipated of the bunch, all of these EVs are great cars, much better than any fossil fuel vehicle (FFV) equivalent


Prepping For World Electric Car (Tesla) Distance Record Attempt

August 18th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

This weekend, members of the Tesla Shuttle crew are going to attempt to break the world record for miles/kilometers driven on a single charge in an electric car. The attempt is being led by Tomasz Gać, founder/CEO of Quriers and co-founder of Tesla Shuttle. But I'm also one of those people and will be doing a good chunk of the driving — weather permitting. A third co-founder, Jacek Fior, and I did a test drive for several hours recently. Below the video (and in the video chat) are some of my notes from that test drive


Team Of Italians Drives Tesla Model S 100D 1078 Kilometers (~670 Miles) On Single Charge — New Hypermiling Record

August 7th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Editor's Note: Tesla Shuttle (I'm a cofounder), CleanTechnica (I'm the director), and Quriers are going to try to break the record in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.... Just a few months after a team in Belgium broke the previous record, a team in Italy has now gone and set yet another new record for hypermiling in an electric car. The Tesla Owners Italia team managed to take a Tesla Model S 100D 1078 kilometers (~670 miles) on a single charge ... meaning that the record set in Belgium in June 2017 (~560 miles) was surpassed by a margin of around 110 miles


The Important Lesson From Record 560 Miles In A Tesla Model S P100D

June 30th, 2017 | by James Ayre

A new "hypermiling" record for production electric vehicles has been set by a pair from Belgium, using a Tesla Model S 100D. The duo in question, Steven Peeters and Joeri Cools, managed to squeeze 560 miles (901 kilometers) out of the Tesla Model S 100D in question, by traveling at an average of 24 miles per hour (39 km/h) for right around 24 hours. Before we go further about the short-term news, there's a very important lesson to be learned and shared (again) regarding this record and how it relates to the practicality of EV life today
