Tesla’s Navigation Eliminates The Need To Plan Charging Stops On Road Trips

March 26th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla posted a new video to its YouTube account that shows yet another perfect family in their perfectly clean Tesla Model S taking a road trip to a ski resort in Austria for vacation. My Tesla Model 3 never seems to be clean, with random crayons, papers, books, and toy parts in every crevice, but that's another story. The quick video (below) made me reflect on one of the huge benefits of Tesla's navigation system compared to the ones from other automakers: automatic charging stop integration


How Tesla Model 3 Compares To Tesla Model S On 2,400 Mile Road Trip

December 22nd, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Back in 2015, we bought a 2013 Tesla Model S and purposely purchased it from the Tesla Service Center in Columbus, Ohio, even though we live in California. It wasn't the closest location to our home in Ventura, but it gave me the opportunity to see how the car and Tesla's Supercharger network stacked up to the hype when put to the test


Home, Home On The Range: Homing In On Electric Vehicle Ranges

October 17th, 2018 | by Andy Miles

A while back, I got into a conversation in the CleanTechnica comments. The other person was lamenting the fact that the range of any electric vehicle is always given as an average. They were saying that they would mainly be driving about town, and so would want to know not the average range, but the sort of range they could expect to get when driving about town. They were saying that prospective electric vehicle buyers should have the full information to help them with choosing which model and make to buy.


Denver To Zion National Park In Tesla Model X

October 16th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla road trips are becoming a popular genre of travel videos. The adventure magazine Outside recently sent writer and filmmaker Brendan Leonard and his girlfriend Hilary on a wonderful western road trip in a Model X. Over the course of five days, they traveled from Denver to Zion National Park, stopping along the way to ski at A-Basin, climb in Telluride, and camp in Monument Valley


Poland To Paris — Our “31 Hour” Tesla Model S Road Trip To & From Autonomy

October 15th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Autonomy starts in just a few days. I will be headed over there (to Paris) with my smart and funny cleantech pal Kuba Stechly. I will be moderating two panels at the conference, but it would have been somewhere at the top of my list of "conferences to squeeze out some time to attend" anyway due to the integrated, full-picture, and insightfully future-focused approach it brings to the world. It's not just about electric cars, not just about cleantech, not just about alternative transport, and not just about city planning. It's about bicycling, walking, city planning, robotaxis, electric cars, electric scooters, EV charging, mobility as a service, the internet of things, and much more. Bringing his own strong commitment to personal action to my inbox, Kuba suggested that we take a Tesla Shuttle to Paris instead of flying


Hyundai Ioniq PHEV vs. Hyundai Ioniq Electric — Road Trip Comparison (Video)

May 20th, 2017 | by James Ayre

One of the main reasons that many car buyers have been reluctant to buy all-electric vehicles is quite simple — traveling long distances in one is generally quite time consuming and inconvenient. This is mostly owing to the dearth of electric vehicle superfast-charging stations and the low range of many of the offerings out there now
