Tesla & Robotaxi Economics: The Network That Optimizes The Machine

January 9th, 2020 | by Rahul Sonnad

There is a long-standing argument about whether Tesla is a car company or a tech company. This argument is typically made in the context of how Wall Street should value the company. If Tesla is just a new kind of carmaker, it should be valued at something significantly less than its annual revenue — maybe 25% to 50%, like Ford and GM. Alternatively, if Tesla is a tech company, then it could be valued significantly higher. Google, for example, is trading at about 6 times its revenues today, Facebook at 8, Microsoft at 9, and Salesforce at 10 times. Tesla trades at around 3 times its revenues with some profits, while Uber and Lyft trade around 4 times revenues and have never been profitable


Tesla Roadster to 2012 Model S to 2022 Cybertruck (Reflections & Videos)

January 5th, 2020 | by Cynthia Shahan

I became more aware of electric cars around 2013, but it was a few years later when conversations popped up with more people who were interested in electric cars, and in particular Tesla (and Elon Musk). Then, from diverse directions, old and young mentioned Tesla. I began sensing the rise of a new kind of techno folk hero


Who Got The Tesla Story Right In The 2010s?

January 1st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

There's a bit of a problem in much of the media these days. There's a broad assumption — from both media consumers and members of the media — that media outlets are supposed to present "two sides of the story." Case in point: Tesla


DIY Electric Cybercar — Long Lost Tesla Cybertruck Ancestor?

December 25th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

A little while after the Tesla Cybertruck came out, I remembered an electric car from much earlier that I had ridden in once. It was a handmade, DIY electric car that was clearly unique, but it now seems like a long lost ancestor of Tesla's Cybertruck


“Prognostications of Tesla’s doom have gone from concerning, to annoying, to boring, to pathetic”

December 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I honestly don't know why, but I find the Tesla short seller story to be one of the most fascinating stories in cleantech, or at least I did. At times in the past couple of years, Tesla [TSLA] has been the most shorted stock on the US stock market, and it seems Tesla short sellers (stock market traders betting against the company) have certainly gotten more press than short sellers of any other company. I think that is part of why it's been such a fascinating story — because so much money has been betting against Tesla, and those Tesla pessimists have been dominating or at least greatly shaping media coverage of the company


Tesla Cybertrucks Don’t Need Garages … 2012 Tesla Model S Beats 2020 EV Competitors … Dutch EV Sales Explosion Soon The New Normal — CleanTechnica Top 20

December 21st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The top three stories on CleanTechnica last week were some writer reflections or analysis on Tesla vehicles and the burgeoning electric vehicle (EV) market as a whole. They explained why a Tesla Cybertruck doesn't need to park in a garage, that a 2012 Tesla Model S is still unbeaten by non-Tesla competitors — including EVs coming in 2020, and why the huge growth in EV sales in the Netherlands is something we should get used to


Tesla’s Cybertruck Makes A Garage Obsolete — Here’s Why

December 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Many of us are now in a predicament, because Tesla made a vehicle that was made for people who need (or want) a large vehicle, but they made it so cool that many people with normal-sized cars want one too. On the internet, this has resulted in a bunch of things, like people realizing that the Cybertruck doesn't fit in their garages. It has also resulted in people asking Elon for a smaller Cybertruck. Personally, I think that what these people really want is a Cyber SUV, but that is a whole other discussion
