After my article "There Will Be Blood" was published here on CleanTechnica, Peter Mertens, the former Head of R&D at Audi and former Board Member of Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo, and Jaguar Land Rover, and now Board Member of Faurecia, Recogni and Chairman of the Advisory Board of Valens, reached out to me and asked if I am interested in an interview with him

It's all over the news: It has finally been proven that Teslas are no good! Well, let's put it this way: the evidence is circumstantial. This comes as no surprise to me, since I already told you about how customers feel about Tesla based on the largest Danish car owner satisfaction report

New plug-in vehicles in the UK — as you can see in the headline — are plug-in versions of the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Are they worth the cost

Jaguar Land Rover has a new concept vehicle out that looks quite similar to a few concept vehicles from other automakers (Tesla sort of included). It's basically part of a new class of vehicles that designers apparently think will become the norm as the industry evolves into autonomous transport

Comparing Tesla vehicle sales to pickup truck and compact budget car sales is too much of an apples-to-oranges comparison. But comparing Tesla sales to the sales of the world's top luxury auto brands is getting interesting

It's time for another monthly checkup on US auto sales. Surprisingly, more than a million people are still buying the 21st century equivalent of horses every month. I think the most interesting takeaway, though, is quickly running through the companies and car divisions that saw their sales drop last month (compared to the same month in 2018) and then the companies and car divisions that saw their sales rise

Now that we've got a truly mass market electric car in the US (the 13th best selling car in the country in the first quarter of 2019 and the best selling luxury car), I've found it interesting to take a closer look at changes in all automakers' overall car and automobile sales. I meticulously track changes from month to month and quarter to quarter using automaker sales reports for this purpose

Tesla had the #1 top selling luxury car in the USA in the first quarter of 2019, but it didn't win the title of top selling luxury car producer in the first quarter and also didn't top the list of luxury automakers (cars + SUVs/CUVs/trucks). However, the Silicon Valley company did stay on the podium despite a 50% cut in the federal EV tax credit for Tesla buyers and despite the fact that most Tesla vehicles were shipped abroad (with the Model 3 making it overseas for the first time)

We have a weird situation. Not that long after GM decided to stop sharing monthly US sales figures, Ford has now followed suit and done the same. This is making monthly market sales report quite challenging. Of course, underneath the GM and Ford brands are Chevrolet, Lincoln, Buick, and Cadillac

The electric vehicle (EV) industry was booming in 2018. It was the most booming year of a booming decade for EVs. Below is a long, long rundown of notables changes in the industry in

With our US large luxury car sales report, US small & midsize luxury car sales report, US electric vehicle sales report, and other Tesla-related sales reports recently completed, it's time for another edition of Nasty Tesla Charts!
December 25th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan
For this month's edition of "Nasty Tesla Charts," I decided to add one non-sales chart that I should have added months ago. It's just too good of a chart to not include here. The other 22 are Tesla sales charts that deserve much more attention than they get

Jaguar Land Rover sales have fallen off a cliff, largely because many of its vehicles are powered by diesel engines. It is struggling to convert to electric cars but will it have enough money to do so? Meanwhile, it expects to layoff 5,000 employees next year.
