Elon Musk: “The thing that bugs me the most is that our cars are not affordable enough. We need to fix that.”

July 23rd, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

When it comes to affordability, Tesla has come a long way but still has a bit further to go. It will get there, I believe, but it will require more hard work, persistence, and faith. Just this month Tesla announced that you can lease a Model Y for $499 a month. That is still a high price for a car for most Americans, let alone most people of the world

Solar Equipment Manufacturer Evolves, Tesla Model Y Availability, J.D. Power’s Tesla Evaluation — CleanTechnica Top 20

July 5th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular stories of last week on CleanTechnica were led by an interesting story of a solar manufacturing equipment maker moving into the solar cell manufacturing game (got that?), followed by a lot of Tesla stories, some hype for lithium-iron-phosphate batteries, Toyota announcing that it had done a horrendous job forecasting demand for the RAV4 Prime (leading to a battery shortfall and production suspension), Sydney inspiring the world by going 100% renewable (for electricity)
