Continuing our discussion of Tesla and David Havasi's long history at Tesla, we took up where we left off, talking about early Model S days at Tesla. At the time that, Tesla had a gigantic factory in Fremont with almost nothing in it other than big, wild dreams and post-apocalyptic images of Blade Runner and The Highlander flashing through their heads as they looked across the expansive space


Breaking! Tesla Model Y Production To Start ~Q1 2020 (Unofficial Leak)

October 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This information is going to cause some controversy, because everything we knew, or thought we knew, about Tesla’s Model Y timeline is about to change. Originally, the Model Y was supposed to start shipping in "late 2020." Currently, Tesla's website says new orders will ship in Q1 2021. However, according to an anonymous source with a proven and reliable track record, Tesla is about to accelerate its plans and start production sometime around Q1 2020 at its Fremont factory. (We've also received the same information independently through a second-hand source.)

June 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular CleanTechnica articles of May are in a list below. First, though, I'll highlight some of my favorites. Well, the #1 story on the top 20 is also perhaps my favorite, but I wrote it, so I'm biased. It is a cost comparison between the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus and several Honda Accord trims.

Jerome — The Man, The Myth, The Tesla Super-Engineer — #CleanTechnica Interview

May 18th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

If you were following Tesla in the early days of the Model S, and more so if you were an early Model S owner, you probably know or know of Jerome Guillen. He led development of the Tesla Model S (program director) and was also VP of Worldwide Sales and Service for 2½ years. He was absolutely loved by owners. If you frequented Tesla forums in the pre–Model X days, you might have even seen more love for Jerome than for Elon (Musk). People loved him

Tesla’s Seat Heaven — Home Of Tesla’s Cloud-Like Seats

April 22nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

If you've ever ridden in a Tesla vehicle featuring the company's white vegan leather seats, you were surely impressed. They're as soft as a cloud. They're as white as Conan O'Brien's grandma (I assume). Beyond the smooth surface, they're so cushy you feel like you just sat on the marshmallow man. And on a cold day, they'll toast your buns quicker than a looney roadrunner can climb a mountain
